Lexus Press Release

2010 Lexus LS 460 AWDLexus has previewed an all-wheel drive variant of its LS 460 Luxury Saloon at the Moscow International Motor Show.

LS 460's all-wheel drive system will use a three differential configuration, featuring a compact TorsenĀ® Limited Slip Differential (LSD).

The TorsenĀ® LSD system - shared with the LS 600hL - is designed to provide seamless all-wheel drive, with optimal traction and driving performance. The torque-sensing system generates limited differential torque proportional to the vehicle's drive torque. It will be set up with a front-to-rear torque split that is biased to the rear in the ratio 40:60.

Lexus chief executive John Roca said that Lexus Australia would welcome the all-wheel drive LS 460 in Australia.

2010 Lexus LS 460 AWD"Lexus Australia is currently studying the introduction of the all-wheel drive LS 460 for Australia. If added to the local model line-up, the introduction of LS 460 AWD would coincide with launch of the vehicle in other markets in late 2009," said Roca.

"LS 460 AWD would add another model option for Lexus LS purchasers and provide us with a competitive offering to other all-wheel drive luxury sedans in LS 460's segment," said Roca.
