2011 Lexus GS 460 Overview

Power and comfort blend beautifully with top-notch safety in the luxurious 2011 Lexus GS 460 midsize sedan.

A 342-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 powers the 2011 Lexus GS 460, which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.  The GS 460 engine boasts direct injection and variable valve timing technologies, and comes in a rear wheel drive layout.  The GS 460 receives 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway ratings, and achieves an impressive Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle II rating from the EPA.  Compared with V-8 offerings from the Cadillac STS, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series, the GS 460 delivers nice power and fuel economy.

The Adaptive Variable Suspension system offers Normal and Sports settings, for a comfortable or spirited ride if you’re in the mood for it.  For further improved driving dynamics, the Active Power Stabilizer System uses sensors to detect body roll and help combat it for more level, performance-oriented driving dynamics.  Eighteen-inch wheels put lots of rubber on the road for plenty of cornering grip.

Interior amenities for the 2011 Lexus GS 4560 include regency perforated leather-trimmed power front seats feature heat and ventilation.  Dazzling wood trim, polished metal and leather are draped around every corner and in every cranny to create a delightful and luxurious visual experience.

Once you are comfortably situated, reach for the Lexus Premium Audio System with its ten speakers, six-CD changer and USB media device connectivity.  An available 330-watt Mark Levinson Premium Sound System comes with 14 finely calibrated speakers and the seven-inch display screen can display DVD movies when the vehicle is parked.  The compass in the inside mirror has been replaced by the optional navigation system that has a compass feature.

Brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution systems join antilock brakes in giving the 2011 Lexus GS 460 great stopping power.  Vehicle Stability Control, which acts as a traction and stability control system, keeps the GS 460 poised and capable of helping the driver avoid accidents when possible.  The Lexus Enform™ system with Safety Connect™ includes stolen vehicle location and crash notification functions, so you get help when you need it most.  A brake override system, which automatically reduces engine power when the brake and accelerator pedals are pressed at the same time to prevent unintended acceleration, is standard for 2011.

Feel the exhilaration of driving an excellent-tuned vehicle, coupled with high-end luxury and copious amounts of safety and technology features in the 2011 Lexus GS 460.
