2009 Lexus LS 460 AWD
7 of 11

Price: $68,225

Overview: A 380-horsepower, 4.6-liter, V-8 matched to a driver-shiftable, eight-speed automatic transmission powers the LS 460. Although some argue it does too good a job isolating the driver, its quiet cabin and ultra-smooth ride are legendary.

Specifics: The EPA-estimated fuel economy numbers are 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. Among the standard features are 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, power accessories, keyless ignition/entry, adaptive Xenon headlamps, heated outboard mirrors and heated front seats.
