last i checked TMG had a Lexus LS turned into basically a performance sedan, which could signal future expectations for the next generation LS.

2016 Request

For 2016, Heads Up Display and Panoramic View Camera (on US models) as shown when NX model was first introduced. Also, pedestrian detection and fore/aft adjustable head rests.

Eventually gesture controls might be the next level of tech Lexus offers seeing how it's being implemented elsewhere in the industry, plus it seems like a very Lexus thing to do.

Agree with ClaudeNX on the cheap creaking mirror housing. @mojo : An F would be nice but the NX would have to move to a rear-drive platform.


Other areas of improvement/wish list:

ML
360 view camera
Panoramic sunroof
Power folding mirrors
Reduced turbo/powertrain lag
Reduce premium fuel requirement to 87 octane
Ability to lock door without fob while rear hatch is closing
Eliminate rough idle at 750-800 rpm when engine is cold
Reduce snow accumulation in door bottoms
Rear seat latch release in trunk
Ventilated seats in F Sport model
Rear vent controls
Bigger sunglass cubby
Less aggressive bottom seat bolstering on F Sport

I think a number of those things are likely to happen. Some may be left out though to keep for higher end models.

Things that should definitely change are the snow accumulation, panoramic sunroof, and the sunglasses cubby.

Things that would be nice are the 360 degree camera (though I think this would be in a tech package), power folding mirrors, ventilated seats in the F-Sport model.

Other stuff I am not sure about about one way or the other.

Powerfolding mirrors to me are right up their, it helps when you live in the city and want to ensure when you park that they won't get hit or in what ever similar situation.

@mister - That's right, I hope they resolve or reduce the snow accumulation in the doors. Brought this issue and fix up to Lexus a few months back in the hope they consider extending the door seal (or similar solution) since this has significantly reduced snow and dirt accumulation for me.
