New car names can be confusing, as they often are meant to communicate the intentions of car designers. Each new Lexus model features an abbreviated name that indicates its specific goals, all with the style and power you expect from the Lexus brand.

Lexus Sedans

The Lexus lineup features three sedan options, each with its own distinctive branding. The 2023 Lexus LS, or Luxury Sedan, is the line’s flagship, with a powerful twin-turbocharged V6 engine offering a dominant drive. The 2023 Lexus ES, or Executive Sedan, provides both gasoline and hybrid powertrains and a variety of trims for every driver. The 2023 Lexus GS, or Grand Sedan, fits in the middle, offering increased traction for off-road adventurers.

Lexus Crossovers

Names that end in X indicate that the vehicle belongs to Lexus’ line of crossover SUVs. Like its namesake sedan, the 2023 Lexus LX stands for Luxury Crossover and features a twin-turbocharged V6 to produce 409 horsepower. The 2023 Lexus UX, or Urban Crossover, excels at navigating tight city traffic, and the 2023 Lexus NX, or Nimble Crossover, combines both, offering responsive handling and a stylish cabin.

Lexus Coupes

The 2023 Lexus IS isn’t a sedan—the abbreviation stands for Intelligent Sports, as this coupe is ready for the racetrack. The 2023 Lexus LC, or Luxury Coupe, features all the style you expect from a Lexus in a robust compact coupe form. And the 2023 Lexus RC, or Radical Coupe, pushes into the future, offering a new vision of what a hybrid can be.
