Here are the 5 Cheapest Lexus LS Models for Sale

When Toyota launched its new Lexus marque in 1989, it did so with the full-size LS 400 serving as the new brand’s flagship product. In the years since, the LS built a reputation for offering world-leading refinement and longevity, attributes it still enjoys today. Combined with over three decades of production, those merits make the LS a compelling used car purchase. Here are the cheapest accident-free Lexus LS models currently for sale on Autotrader from each of the LS’s five generations.

1. 1993 Lexus LS 400

1993 Lexus LS 400

Marketed as the LS 400, the original LS was offered from the 1990 through 1994 model years. It used a 4.0-liter V8 engine putting out 250 horsepower. There are just 10 first-generation LS 400 models on Autotrader, the least expensive of which is a 1993 model with 161,773 miles on the odometer and a reasonable asking price of $2,900. Unfortunately, life in the Midwest has not been kind to it, and the exterior shows some rust. Find this 1993 Lexus LS in Huntley, Illinois. See Lexus LS models for sale

2. 1997 Lexus LS 400

There are currently just a dozen 1995-2000 Lexus LS models for sale on Autotrader. The cheapest is a 1997 model with 227,963 miles on the odometer.

Under the hood of the latest LS is a twin-turbo 3.4-liter V6, a version that serves in the latest versions of Toyota’s full-size body-on-frame trucks. A hybridized model dubbed the LS 500h uses a version of this engine. The current-generation LS has yet to depreciate much.
