2011 LEXUS GS 460

Quick and smooth acceleration combined with the luxurious amenities bestowed upon the Lexus GS 460 make the midsize luxury sport sedan synonymous with refinement.
The 2011 Lexus GS 460 receives standard Smart Stop Technology. The braking system enhancement automatically reduces engine power when the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal are applied simultaneously under certain driving conditions.
The GS 460’s V-8 produces 342 horsepower and 339 lb.-ft. of peak torque. Lexus sets standards for powertrain smoothness with the eight-speed automatic transmission that allows manual shifting for a more engaging driving experience, and helps to maximize performance in certain driving situations. The GS 460 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. The double-wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension virtually eliminate unwanted wheel-angle changes during suspension movement. The result is a natural, confident feel that’s also spirited.
The Adaptive Front-lighting System helps illuminate a curve as the driver steers into it. The available Intuitive Park Assist system uses ultrasonic sensors to detect objects close to the car’s front and rear bumpers and alerts the driver accordingly.
Ultra-premium wood, polished-metal accents and leather trim endow the GS interior with a lavish yet high-precision feel. Touch points convey quality and controls that respond fluidly. The customer can choose from among three interior leather color combinations: Light Gray leather with Dark Gray Bird’s-eye maple wood trim, Parchment leather with Golden Bird’s-eye Maple wood trim, or Black leather with Red Walnut wood trim.
Base model estimated mpg: 17/24
Estimated starting price: $54,470
