The Lexus LS 460 models deliver the luxury of powerful, smooth performance from a 4.6-liter V8 teamed with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 380 horsepower and 367 lb.-ft. of peak torque in rear-wheel-drive configuration; 357 horsepower and 344 lb.-ft. of torque with AWD.
The LS 460 delivers the ultra-comfortable ride quality that has become synonymous with the Lexus flagship LS sedans. The air suspension system, which is optional on all-wheel drive models and the LS 460 L RWD, effectively helps control body lean to provide an extraordinarily smooth ride. The system offers three settings – including “Sport” – allowing the driver to custom-tailor suspension response from maximum comfort to sharpest handling. The LS 460 has an impressive turning circle (curb to curb) – 35.4 ft. for the LS 460 RWD; 37.4 ft. for the LS 460 AWD; 36.1 ft. for the LS 460 L RWD and 38.7 ft. for LS 460 L AWD – that yields excellent maneuverability.
The Lexus LS 460 provides one of the most advanced and comprehensive integrations of vehicle-safety technology today. Active front headrests on all models are designed to help reduce the severity of whiplash-type injuries in certain rear end collisions. Active safety features include the VDIM system, which by itself integrates and manages the Electronically Controlled Brake (ECB) system, Electronic Power Steering (EPS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and engine torque via the electronically controlled throttle.
The LS 460 has numerous user-tech amenities for a comprehensive luxury package. The driver’s seat features a standard slide-away feature that makes ingress/egress more comfortable; a multi-information display uses a large center console LCD screen; and the available navigation system employs voice command casual-language based voice recognition and Bluetooth® phonebook download capability. The audio system features an integrated XM Radio receiver, music playing capability with Bluetooth audio streaming and USB/iPod® connectivity. An iPod connected through the USB port can be controlled through the steering wheel audio controls or headunit.
Controls in the LS 460 models provide the utmost convenience; including SmartAccess with push button start/stop, and a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio, brake hold and multi-information display controls. An automatic electric parking brake system eliminates the need to press a foot-operated pedal.
Lexus offers several LS 460 option packages. The Comfort Package includes a power trunk closer, Intuitive Park Assist, heated rear seats and heated and cooled front seats. A heated steering wheel is also included in the Comfort Package for LS 460 RWD.
The LS 460 flagship showcases the brand’s L-finesse design philosophy, revealing a family resemblance that conveys elegance, refinement and a strong emotional appeal. Minimal body gaps, a low front grille and deep-drawn fenders all contribute to the car’s distinctive, muscular profile. Lexus’ attention to detail is seen in the integrated dual chrome exhaust tips and the one-piece chrome window surround.
The thin film transistor multi-informational display and Optitron instrument cluster set the tone for blending functional high-tech with pleasing aesthetics. Tasteful wood and chrome trim as well as refinements to the interior lighting create a rich feeling, including LED ambient interior lighting with spot-lamp illumination in front and rear. Even the angles on the center console were optimized to enhance comfort for the driver and front passenger.
As a further example of Lexus’ passionate attention to luxury detail, the LS steering wheel is wrapped by supple, twice-buffed leather. The water-based dye used on the leather provides a more natural feel, and a whipstitch pattern ensures a smooth wheel surface without any unevenness or jumps in the stitch.
