We got a nice little update on the 2004 Lexus LS in our mail box today from the Lexus press department, so I thought I would share with you all. Who knows, maybe we will get some of these fancy shmancy additions in a future IS model! Well, wishful thinking anyways.. hehe.<P>

The improvements start with the new pairing of a 290-horsepower V8 and a six-speed automatic transmission that together produce 0-60 acceleration in just 5.9 seconds. That's a level of performance that keeps the LS out in front, right where it belongs.<P>

The technology is leading the pack, too, with an available backup camera that lets you see behind you while your car is in reverse, and entry features like SmartAccess, which not only detects the presence of your unique key and allows you to start the LS without fumbling for the key or remote button, but allows you to unlock the doors with the same convenience. We're also introducing an available Satellite Digital Audio Receiver System (SDARS) , receivable from
coast to coast, with CD-quality sound from digital broadcasts.<P>

Visually, things are just as exciting. The new bolder look is enhanced not only by the newly designed hood, headlights, grille
and dual exhaust, but also by the new-design 17-inch, six-spoke wheels, offered in alloy or chrome finish (18-inch, five-spoke wheels will be offered as an option).<P>

Inside, the luxury appointments abound, from premium leather in Cashmere, Ash, Black and Saddle shades accompanied by either golden brown bird's-eye maple or antique walnut wood. To achieve sound worthy of the LS, we're offering an available Mark Levinson® Premium Audio System , featuring 11 speakers and 240 watts of pure sound.<P>

If all of that wasn't enough, this Lexus LS has the engineering and thinking behind it that has consistently received awards for quality
and customer satisfaction. In fact, the LS has received recognition from J.D. Power and Associates as the "Highest Ranked Premium Luxury Car" [Vimes] seven times in a row.
