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]The engine immobilizer is a state-of-the-art anti-theft system. When you insert your key into the ignition switch or bring a SmartAccess fob into the vehicle, the key transmits an electronic code to the vehicle. The engine will only start if the code in the transponder chip inside the key or SmartAccess fob matches the code in the vehicle's immobilizer. Because the transponder chip is embedded in the key or SmartAccess fob, it can be costly to replace. If you lose a key or SmartAccess fob, your Lexus dealer can help. Alternatively, you can find a qualified independent locksmith to perform high-security key services by consulting your local Yellow Pages or by contacting www.aloa.org. [11]The SmartAccess system may interfere with some pacemakers or cardiac defibrillators. If you have one of these medical devices, please talk to your doctor to see if you should deactivate this system. [12]The Lexus Personalized Settings (LPS) can be programmed in two ways: For most models equipped with the available Navigation System, the driver can modify the settings themselves; for other models, including those without a Navigation System, programming is done by your Lexus dealer via a one-time, complimentary offer during the first 12 months from the date the vehicle is sold. See Lexus dealer for more information. [13]The voice-activated HDD Navigation System is designed to assist in locating an address or point of interest. XM NavTraffic® requires a monthly service fee and is designed to provide real-time traffic or alternative routes of travel. Discrepancies may be encountered between the system and your actual location. Road system changes may affect the accuracy of the information provided. Rely on your common sense to decide whether to follow a specified route. Detailed coverage not available in every city or roadway. Periodic Navigation updates available at an additional cost. Please see your Navigation System Owner's Manual for further details. [14]The backup camera does not provide a comprehensive view of the rear area of the vehicle. You should also look around outside your vehicle and use your mirrors to confirm rearward clearance. Cold weather may limit effectiveness and view may become cloudy. [15]The Bluetooth® technology phones listed on lexus.com have been tested for compatibility with Lexus vehicles. Performance will vary based on phone software version, coverage and your wireless carrier. Phones are warranted by their manufacturer, not Lexus. [16]Satellite Radio requires an XM® or SIRIUS® compatible receiver and a subscription service fee after trial. Vehicles without a factory-installed radio receiver require hardware purchase and installation. Please see your Lexus dealer for further details. All fees and programming subject to change. Subscriptions subject to the XM Customer Agreement available at www.xmradio.com or the SIRIUS Terms & Conditions available at www.sirius.com. Available only in the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia. [17]iPod® is a registered trademark of Apple Inc. All rights reserved. [18]Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) are electronic systems designed to help the driver maintain control under adverse conditions. They are not substitutes for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC and VDIM will be effective in preventing a loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for further details. [19]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. [20]The Tire Pressure Monitor System alerts the driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the monitor system. See Owner's Manual for details. [21]All the airbag (AB) systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All ABs (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions: frontal and knee ABs typically inflate in frontal collisions; side and side curtain ABs in side collisions; Roll-Sensing Curtain ABs at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral G-force. In all other accidents, the ABs will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating AB, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an AB or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of an inflating AB may cause serious injury or death. See Owner’s Manual for further information/warnings. [22]Continuous average power, all channels driven, at less than 0.1% THD; 20–20,000 Hz. [23]Mark Levinson® is a registered trademark of Harman International Industries, Inc. [24]High-friction brakes require periodic inspection and measurement as outlined in the Warranty and Services Guide. The pads and rotors are expected to experience greater wear than conventional brakes. Pad life may be less than 20,000 miles, and brake rotor life may be less than 50,000 miles depending on driving conditions. [25]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. [26]Not available for LS 460 AWD and LS 460 L AWD. [27]Headphones are for passenger use only. Do not use while operating vehicle. [28]Lexus LinkĀ® is a factory-installed option and is available for LS 600h L and LX 570 (2008 model year and later), LS 460, GS 430/350, GS 450h (2007 model year and later) and LX 470 and GX 470 (2006 model year and later). [29]The Pre-Collision System is designed to help reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a collision-avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, driver input and road conditions. See Owner's Manual for further information. [30]Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. See Owner's Manual for important instructions and cautions. [31]Currently available PPO. Ask your Dealer Sales Consultant for vehicle application. Back to top
