2009 GS 350 Overview

The Lexus GS is meant to be dynamic, yet free of gimmicks.It is meant to combine precision with lavish, luxurious appointments.It is meant to deliver a high standard of automotive performance, yet be intuitive to drive.Amazing examples of automotive technology are included as standard equipment, yet the driver is never aware of them.The Lexus GS does everything you ask, and yet it always feels effortless.

Three models are available.The GS 350 features a 303-hp, 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic with manual shift gate.All-wheel drive is available.We found the GS 350 thoroughly enjoyable to drive.The V6 is quite responsive, propelling the GS 350 from 0 to 60 mph in an impressive 5.7 seconds and gets an EPA-estimated 19/26 mpg.

There's also a hybrid: The GS 450h combines the 3.5-liter V6 with two electric motors for improved power and fuel economy.The GS 450h hybrid is actually the quickest of the GS sedans, getting from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds.Fuel economy for the GS 450h is rated 22/25 mpg City/Highway on the government's EPA cycle.

The 4.6-liter V8 makes 342 horsepower and comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.For added performance, the eight-speed transmission includes a Sport mode that enables you to manually make sequential shifts with the console-mounted gear lever.The GS 460 is the fastest of the models, with a top speed of 149 mph and 0-60 in 5.4 seconds.

The all-wheel-drive GS 350 AWD features a fast-acting, clutch-type center differential that sends 70 percent of the power to the rear wheels under normal circumstances to help foster the dynamics of a rear-wheel-drive car.When wheel sensors detect slippery road conditions, as much as 50 percent of engine power is diverted to the front wheels to increase the car's overall traction on the road.

The third-generation Lexus GS came to market for 2006, a showcase of Toyota's most advanced technology.It arrived with more computing power than some third-world countries and a standard of luxury usually enjoyed only in the best zip codes.Refinements followed for 2007; and then a much-improved V8 engine arrived for 2008.2008 models benefited from a new front fascia and chrome grille surround, new side-mirror turn signals, a revised instrument panel, and other appearance tweaks inside and out.There are no significant changes for 2009.
