Lexus GS 450h Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

Now 20 years since the Lexus GS model debuted as an inline six-cylinder sedan, the midsize luxury line has expanded to include a V8 and -- beginning in 2006 -- a hybrid option.

The current GS 450h features a second-generation hybrid system: a 3.5-liter V6 paired with two electric motors and a continuously variable transmission. With 338 horsepower on tap, the GS 450h can reach 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. Fuel economy is good, though not exceptional: 29 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.

Major changes included:

After taking the 2012 model year off, Lexus released the second-generation GS 450h in 2013 with a completely revised body with the signature spindle-style grille and a fully revised cabin. The GS 450h retained the 3.5-liter V6 engine, now producing 338 horsepower -- one less than the first generation. Under the skin, the GS 450h received a revised suspension system and a stiffer chassis for more precise handling.

Major changes included:

In 2007, Lexus unveiled the GS 450h -- a hybrid version of the automaker's luxury sedan. The only distinguishing characteristics on the GS 450h were hybrid-exclusive wheels and badges; otherwise, it looked like any other GS sedan. The GS 450h featured a 3.5-liter V6 combined with a performance-oriented electric motor that teamed up to produce 339 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, all sent through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). In 2008, Lexus updated the front fascia of the GS 450h, but the changes were subtle.
