"For 2010, the GS 450h now delivers even more luxury to drivers, through new style elements, and additional standard safety, comfort and convenience features."

For 2010, the GS hybrid enjoys a new front grille and wheel design, and added standard features including:

The 2010 Lexus GS 450h is built around the Lexus Hybrid Drive. This performance vehicle has as its heart a 3.5L V6 with lightweight aluminum alloy block and a full suite of Lexus engine management technologies, coupled to an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission with sequential multi-mode shifter and snow mode. Together, these deliver 339 net horsepower for remarkably smooth and confident acceleration and peak torque of 267 lb-ft, making the rear wheel drive GS hybrid a thrill to drive.
