LS 2009

For 2009, the LS 460 is available with all-wheel drive (AWD) in both standard and long wheelbase models. Utilizing a TORSEN® limited-slip center differential [1], engine power is directed between the front and rear wheels, providing improved traction in a wide range of road surfaces and weather conditions. The LS 460 features a 4.6-liter V8 that produces 380 horsepower [2] and is capable of launching the LS from 0 to 60 in 5.4 seconds [2] [3]. All LS 460 models feature a 4.6-liter V8 mated to the world's first eight-speed automatic transmission. This transmission allows for smoother shifting and improved fuel economy.

The exterior features 18-inch alloy wheels [4], crystal-like projector-beam High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps and dual exhaust outlets. The LS can be equipped with the Advanced Parking Guidance System [5] which enables it to parallel park or back into a parking spot virtually by itself. The LS is also offered as a long-wheelbase model that offers rear legroom. The Executive-Class Seating Package (available for the LS 460 L) includes a right-rear-seat recliner with multifunction massager and leg rest [6] [7], center-console wood-trimmed table and a DVD Rear-Seat Entertainment System (RSES).

[1]TORSEN® is a registered trademark of Zexel Torsen, Inc. [2]Ratings achieved using the required premium unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 91 or higher. If premium fuel is not used, performance will decrease. [3]Performance figures are for comparison only and were obtained with prototype vehicles by professional drivers using special safety equipment and procedures. Do not attempt. [4]19-in performance tires are expected to experience greater tire wear than conventional tires. Tire life may be substantially less than 15,000 miles, depending upon driving conditions. [5]The Advanced Parking Guidance System requires driver brake control. Always look around outside the vehicle and use mirrors to confirm clearance. [6]Leg rest may not fully recline based on height of rear-seat passenger. Do not allow passengers to sit in a seat that has been fully or severely reclined while driving. This feature is intended for use only when the vehicle is parked. While the vehicle is being driven, all vehicle occupants should have the seatback upright, sit well back in the seat and properly wear the seatbelts provided. In the event of a collision, the more the seat is reclined, the greater the risk of death or personal injury. See Owner's Manual for additional information. [7]If leg rest is in use, seating capacity could be reduced from four to three passengers. [8]MSRP does not include delivery, processing and handling fee of $910. Excludes taxes, title, license and optional equipment. Dealer price may vary. Does not include accessory options installed by dealer. [9]Delivery, processing and handling fee is based on the value of the processing, handling and delivery services Lexus provides, as well as Lexus' overall pricing structure. Lexus may make a profit on the delivery, processing and handling fee. [10]EPA MPG Estimates. Actual mileage will vary. [11]18-in performance tires are expected to experience greater tire wear than conventional tires. Tire life may be substantially less than 15,000 miles, depending upon driving conditions. [12]Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance, tire and road conditions. [13]Prices for options/accessories/packages are Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) as of posting date. Actual dealer prices may vary. Installation fee required on select accessories. Lexus strives to build vehicles to match customer interest, and thus they are typically built with popular options and option packages.
