2007 Lexus GS450h Video Review with Ross Rapoport

The 2007 Lexus GS450h represents a new era in the hybrid car category: a hybrid with a luxury sport sedan’s performance. However, it’s going to cost you: the price of the Lexus GS450h starts at $54,900 but if you add features like the touch-screen navigation system and Mark Levinson audio system, the price quickly rises to $59,955.


Performance-friendly AND environmentally-friendly, the 2007 GS450 is powered by the 3.5L V6 engine from the base-GS350 matched with a small electric hybrid motor. Combined, the two motors put out 340 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm and 267 lb-ft of torque @ 4,800 in the first-ever rear-wheel drive hybrid. The CVT has three setting options: snow, normal, and sport while the shocks also have a performance setting that you can choose with a push of the button on the middle console. Even with a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds, the GS450h produces respectable MPG numbers: 25 city/28 highway.

Watch our 2007 Lexus GS450h Video and let us know if it’s worth the nearly sixty thousand dollar price tag or if you’ll just stay with a more affordable hybrid, like the Prius.

  1. Just bought one tonight! Was doing some digging on the GS450h and found your site. I also agree with what KyleB said…the 30 mpg mark would be nice especially for not being a super large hybrid sedan.
