Lexus GS Sedans Sporty Elegance in RWD and AWD Models

• wîth V6 or V8 Performance

• 10-Way Front Seats Contoured for

• Standard New Smart Stop

Quick and smooth acceleration wîth the luxurious amenities upon the Lexus GS 350 and GS 460 make the luxury sport sedans wîth refinement. After several technology enhancements in the GS 350 and GS 460 receive standard Smart Technology for 2011 as an additional of consumer confidence. The braking enhancement will automatically engine power when the pedal and the accelerator pedal are simultaneously under certain conditions.


The GS gas luxury sedan comes in three – GS 350 rear-wheel drive GS 350 all-wheel drive (AWD) and GS 460 Optimized for low internal friction, the GS 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 303 at 6,200 rpm and 274 lb.-ft. of peak at 3,600 rpm. A direct system provides much fuel-mixture control to improve power and fuel efficiency.

Variable Valve Timing intelligence (VVT-i) acts on intake and exhaust valves to enhance performance through a rpm range. A smooth-shifting six-speed allows sequential shifting desired.

The GS 460’s V8 produces 342 at 6,400 rpm and 339 lb.-ft. of peak at 4,100 rpm. The GS 460, the GS 350, meets the EPA’s Low Emission Vehicle (ÚLEV-II) Lexus has been setting for powertrain smoothness since its and the GS 460’s V8 and eight-speed automatic continue that tradition.

The like the six-speed automatic in the GS 350 allows manual shifting for a engaging driving experience, and to maximize performance in certain situations. The GS 460 can accelerate from to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, the GS 350 in 5.7 (5.8 for AWD).

The Lexus GS combines proven systems wîth advanced handling technology to provide agile handling and the Lexus smooth ride. The double-wishbone suspension and multilink rear virtually eliminate unwanted changes during suspension The result is a natural, confident that’s also spirited.

A turning circle (35.4 ft. for GS 350 is comparable to that of smaller and helps make the GS highly

In all GS models, Brake Assist Electronic Brake-force Distribution and the Anti-lock Braking System help form a powerful front. EBD optimizes brake at each wheel to help body dive or sway hard braking and cornering. BA 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 increased braking force pedal pressure is released.

18-inch wheels are standard on the GS 460 and for the GS 350 RWD, which features 17-inch wheels. For maximum capability, the GS 350 comes standard 225/50R17 W-rated summer The all-season 17-inch run-flat that are standard on the GS 350 AWD model are on the GS 350 RWD.

The GS 460 is equipped wîth Z-rated summer tires or all-season run-flats.

The GS 350’s all-wheel-drive system helps to handling in diverse driving A planetary-gear center differential and a multi-disc clutch control power distribution. The system sends 70 percent of available to the rear wheels to provide the performance advantages of a rear-drive car and vary the torque-split ratio 30:70 to 50:50 in response to conditions and driver input.

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

An Adaptive Suspension (AVS) system, on the GS 460 and available on the GS 350, provides two Normal and ‘Sport’ for tighter, precise control. AVS can automatically appropriate suspension damping for conditions. The GS 460 also offers the Active Power Stabilizer that helps reduce sway and enhances vehicle during cornering.

An Electronic Únit (ECÚ) 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 wîth traction control. The can be disengaged wîth 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. VDIM integration to provide precise management for the Controlled Brakes (ECB), Gear Ratio Steering Electric Power Steering VSC, ABS, BA, EBD, and torque via the electronically controlled

EPS in the GS 460 provides precise electric assist using a DC motor into the §teering gear Also in the GS 460, VGRS can the §teering from 2.7 turns for low-speed maneuverability to a slower 3.2 lock-to-lock for highway-speed control. also provides differential control, which helps for a delay in §teering response, that occurs in all vehicles, to enhance driving feel lane changes and other maneuvers.

The GS 460’s 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 System (AFS), standard on the GS 460 and for the GS 350, helps illuminate a as the driver steers into it. A pressure monitor system can a critical loss in pressure in one or tires and alert the driver.

A §teering-input helps to better judge in distance to objects.

The Supplemental System (SRS) in the GS sedans variable-force front airbags for the driver and front passenger. The GS standard seat-mounted side for the front seats, knee for the driver and front passenger, and and rear side-curtain airbags. In the GS has active front headrests to enhance driver and front safety.

The rear back-up camera, wîth the optional navigation automatically projects an image of its lens can detect behind the onto the navigation screen the vehicle is in reverse gear.

The Pre-Collision System (PCS) in the GS can help mitigate the effects of an A millimeter-wave radar sensor detect obstacles in front of the while vehicle speed, angle and yaw-rate inputs to determine whether a collision is On models equipped wîth PCS switches the suspension setting to mode to help provide chassis response, preemptively front seat belts, and BA so that increased braking be applied the instant the driver the pedal.
