Any breakthroughs?

As the oldest offering in its segment, the GS 460 doesn’t exactly brim with unexpected touches. But at $60,490 as tested, it offers a surprisingly good value. Our tester included radar cruise control and Lexus’ Pre-Collision System, which prepares the car for an impending wreck. We tested the latter but not the former.

An advanced eight-speed automatic also comes standard on the GS 460, a byproduct of sharing its powertrain with the mega-buck LS 460.
