Model Highlights

This Lexus hybrid pairs a 5.0L V8 engine with two strong electric motors, a system for recapturing power, and a large-capacity battery pack. Altogether, the hybrid powertrain can deliver 438 horsepower and 385 pounds-feet of torque, yielding 0 to 60 mph acceleration times of only 5.5 seconds and impressive passing power. The 2009 LS600h L showcases Lexus Hybrid Drive, which follows the expertise gained in Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive, and uses a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that features manual shift control. The transmission has three driver-selectable driving modes ? normal, power and snow ? for changing road conditions.

The hybrid powertrain is a full hybrid system, meaning that it's capable of running at low-speed on electric power only. It includes an "EV" drive mode to creep almost silently into driveways or parking garages. It's backed up with one of the most powerful hybrid systems in any vehicle, with a 288-volt battery pack and on-board power inverter plus an auxiliary 12-volt battery for on-board accessories.

Power is distributed by a full-time all-wheel-drive system for good traction and stability year round. A Torsen, limited-slip differential helps adjust power distribution; 60 percent goes to the rear wheels under normal driving. Compared to other hybrids and to other high-end luxury cars, the LS600h L boasts extremely quiet operation, with extra sound-deadening materials and special vibration-isolating engine mounts.

The steering and suspension for 2009 are designed to be quiet and isolating, yet communicative enough for confident road-holding. An air-spring suspension helps provide a good compromise between ride and handling, with large ventilated disc brakes front and rear. A variable gear ratio steering system and electronic power steering can function with the standard stability control system to make small adjustments to put the car back on course when needed.

The extended wheelbase that comes with the "L" affords plenty of legroom in the back seat for even the tallest basketball players, and it's appointed in fine semi-analine leather with leather trim and real stitching. Wood and chrome trim adorn the interior throughout. Controls for climate, audio and navigation are operated easily by buttons and via the touchscreen display. The electroluminescent gauges on the instrument panel are stunning, clear and add to the luxury.

Standard features include 19-inch alloy wheels, LED projector headlights, keyless ignition and entry, power door closers, parking assist with back-up camera, navigation system with real-time traffic, leather-trimmed seats and interior, heated steering wheel, 16-way power driver seat and 12-way power passenger seat with memory for both, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, a power rear sunshade, Bluetooth, 19-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system (with 6-disc CD/DVD changer and satellite radio), a music server with a 2,000-song capacity and auxiliary input jack.

The LS 600h L is equipped with traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and knee airbags for the front seats. Rear-seat side airbags are included with any of the three option packages. With the optional adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision system pre-tensions seatbelts and boosts braking power when it senses an impending crash.

Lexus offers three option packages for 2009. The Premium Package includes cooled and reclining rear power seats, rear-seat side airbags and the Lexus advanced parking system (automated parallel parking). The Premium Package II includes everything in the Premium Package plus 4-zone climate control, a rear-seat entertainment system, a center console with a cooler box and power rear-door shades. The Executive-Class Seating Package II adds a power recliner with leg rest and massage feature for the right rear seat, a fixed rear center console that eliminates the fifth seating position, a rear-seat wood table, infrared temperature sensors and special 18-inch, nine-spoke wheels. Separate options include an active suspension stabilizer bar system and adaptive cruise control with a pre-collision safety system.

The Pebble Beach Edition includes truffle mica exterior paint, two-tone alabaster and black leather trim interior with Dark Grey Bird's-eye maple wood trim, 19-inch five-spoke wheels with unique finish, Pebble Beach interior badging, premium black floor mats with stainless steel badging, and blue illuminated scuff plates


Model News

The Pebble Beach edition package is new for 2009, otherwise, there are no significant changes to the LS600h L from 2008.


Value Writeup

Introduced in 2008 as a hybrid complement to the LS460 and extended-length LS460 L, the 2009 LS600h L has the world's first V8, full-time all-wheel-drive hybrid drivetrain. Its performance is similar to that of the top German luxury cars and competes with the most exclusive V12 "super sedans" from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. It meets the Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) emissions standard by further reducing tailpipe emissions this model year. The 2009 model has an average combined fuel economy (city and highway) of 21 mpg.
