Lexus GS Sedans Customers Four Performance Choices for 2009

The 2009 GS luxury sport sedan line includes the V6-powered GS 350 and the GS 350 drive (AWD), the V8-powered GS and the only gasoline electric model in the segment, the GS 450h.

for low internal friction, the GS 350’s V6 engine produces 303 horsepower at rpm and 274 lb.-ft. of peak torque at rpm. A direct fuel-injection provides much finer control to improve both and fuel efficiency. Dual Valve Timing with (VVT-i) acts on both and exhaust valves to further performance through a wide rpm

The GS 460’s V8 produces 342 horsepower at rpm and 339 lb.-ft. of peak torque at rpm. The GS 460, like the GS meets the EPA’s Ultra Low Vehicle (ULEV -II) Lexus has been setting for powertrain smoothness since its and the GS 460’s V8 and eight-speed automatic continue that tradition.

The as the six-speed automatic in the GS 350 models, manual shifting for a more driving experience, and to maximize in certain driving situations. The GS 460 can from zero to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, the GS 350 in 5.7 for AWD).


The Lexus GS proven chassis systems advanced dynamic handling to provide both agile and the Lexus trademark smooth The double-wishbone front suspension and rear suspension virtually unwanted wheel-angle changes suspension movement. The result is a confident feel that’s spirited.

A 34.1-ft. turning (35.4 ft. for GS 350 AWD) is comparable to of smaller cars and helps the GS highly maneuverable.

In all GS models, Assist (BA), Electronic Distribution (EBD) and the Anti-lock System (ABS ) help a powerful safety front. EBD brake pressure at each to help minimize body or sway during hard and cornering. Brake Assist is to determine if the driver is attempting braking, and, if the driver has not firmly enough on the brake to activate the ABS, it will maximum braking force pedal pressure is released.

18-inch wheels are standard on the GS 460 and for the rear-wheel-drive GS 350, which standard 17-inch wheels. For handling capability, the GS 350 comes with 225/50R17 W-rated tires. The all-season 17-inch tires that are standard on the GS 350 AWD are available on the GS 350 RWD.

The GS 460 is equipped 245/40R18 Z-rated summer or available all-season run-flats.

The GS 350’s available all-wheel-drive helps to enhance handling in driving conditions. A planetary-gear differential and a wet-type multi-disc control front-to-rear power The system normally sends 70 of available power to the rear to provide the traditional performance of a rear-drive car and will vary the ratio from 30:70 to in response to driving conditions and input.

The AWD system’s electronic-control takes inputs such as and throttle angle from activity combined with signals from wheel and yaw rate sensors.

An Adaptive Suspension (AVS) system, on the GS 460 and available on the GS 350, provides settings, including sport for more precise control. AVS can select appropriate suspension for driving conditions. The GS 460 also the advanced Active Power system that reduces sway and enhances vehicle during cornering.

An Electronic Unit (ECU) calculates the needed to counter excess sway, which is then to the stabilizer bars by the front and actuators. The GS 350 models are equipped Vehicle Stability Control with traction control. The can be disengaged with the Trac Off when the situation warrants so.

In the GS 460, the Lexus Vehicle Integrated Management (VDIM) integrates and manages a host of technologies, including VSC. input from a variety of VDIM is designed to anticipate the of a vehicle skid or slide and help correct the situation a combination of braking, throttle, and control.

Electric Steering (EPS) in the GS 460 provides electric power assist a DC motor built into the gear housing. Also in the GS Variable Gear Ratio (VGRS) can vary the steering 2.7 turns lock-to-lock for low-speed to a slower 3.2 turns lock-to-lock for stability. VGRS also differential steering control, helps correct for a delay in response — something occurs in all vehicles — to enhance driving feel lane changes and other maneuvers.

The GS 460’s Electronically Brakes (ECB) is a brake-by-wire ECB translates brake pedal into electric signals via computer control, help precise and optimized braking. control provides quick response when needed, the GS 460’s VDIM system to and help correct skids they occur.

The ECB system is by conventional hydraulic brake in the unlikely event of electronic

Safety/Security Features

The Adaptive lighting System (AFS), on the GS 460 and optional for the GS 350, helps a curve as the driver steers it. A Tire Pressure Monitoring can detect a critical loss in in one or more tires and alert the The available Intuitive Park (IPA) system uses sensors to detect objects to the car’s front and rear and alerts the driver accordingly.

A sensor helps to better changes in distance to objects.

The Restraint System (SRS) in the GS includes variable-force front for both the driver and front The GS features standard seat-mounted airbags for the front seats, airbags for the driver and front and front and rear side-curtain

The rear back-up camera, in conjunction with the optional system, automatically projects an of what its lens can detect the vehicle onto the navigation when the vehicle is in reverse

The optional Pre-Collision System in the GS models can help the driver an accident. A millimeter-wave radar helps detect obstacles in of the car, while vehicle steering angle and yaw-rate help to determine whether a is unavoidable. In such a situation, PCS the Adaptive Variable-air Suspension to mode for optimal chassis preemptively retracts front belts, and pre-initializes Brake so that increased braking be applied the instant the driver the pedal.

The active-braking feature automatically apply the brakes up to a rate of 0.3 g if the driver fails to to system warnings.

Exterior Design

The current GS sedans introduced the brand’s design language. A 112.2-inch long hood, pulled-back and short rear deck a confident, powerful stance for the GS. A vertical grille surrounded by independent headlamps visually the current GS sedans with the models while signaling the design progression.

The lower features integrated fog lamps, and a low coefficient of drag (Cd) to minimize wind noise and highway fuel efficiency.


Ultra-premium wood, accents and leather trim the GS interior with a lavish yet feel. Touch points quality and controls that fluidly. The customer can choose among three interior color combinations: Light leather with Dark Bird’s-eye maple wood Cashmere leather with Bird’s-eye Maple wood or Black leather with Red wood trim.

Each includes a matching wood and steering wheel and shift

Lexus designers strive to controls simple and intuitive, needless complexity. The SmartAccess entry and push-to-start ignition the driver to keep the access fob in a or purse. Audio and climate-control are easy to understand and operate.

The instrument panel lighting relies on variable-transparency glass to reflections from the gauge and to help optimize visibility in all conditions.


All new Lexus come with a 48-month/50,000-mile limited warranty with assistance for 48-months/unlimited miles. and restraint system coverage is for 72 months/70,000 miles. Corrosion protection is covered for 72 months, of mileage.
