PostHeaderIcon Lexus GS

For a while now, rumors have been circulating, and it seems as if the Lexus GS may find itself on the guillotine at the end of the fourth and current generation. That generation has been around since 2011 and was just updated in 2015, however, the GS has had some seriously insignificant sales, which is probably why rumors seem to point toward the ES taking the GS’s place in as the mid-sized executive box on wheels. And, considering Lexus sells roughly 10 times more ES than GS models, the rumors make sense. However, we’re now looking at some spy shots that point to those rumors being wrong. We’re guessing the model you see here is the new GS, but it could also be the next-gen ES as it’s currently about time for a generational shift as well. Either way, there is something fresh coming to Lexus’ stable soon, and if it is the GS, rumor has it that the next-gen GS F will get a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 that’s good for some 590 ponies and 500 pound-feet of torque.

With that said, the spy shots show a fairly revised model regardless of what it really is, but we don’t know much else about it at this point. It is clearly a hybrid, as the yellow tape on the back window is a safety requirement for hybrids testing on the Nürburgring. Potential debut dates, based on the current life cycle of both the ES and GS, point to a late 2018 debut with the potential to be a 2019 model with 2020 seeming more feasible. So, we should be learning more about what’s lurking under the camo in the somewhat near future. But, until then, we’re going to assume this is a next-gen GS, so let’s take a better look and talk some more about it.

PostHeaderIcon Latest Rumors About Toyota and Lexus Point to an All-New Engine for the next Supra

The rumor mill is churning over at Toyota with reports that the Japanese automaker is finally building a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, codenamed 943F, that it plans to use on the fifth-generation Lexus GS. The model is scheduled to make its debut in late 2017 or early 2018 and will be marketed as a 2019 model. But, according to Japanese media outlet Mag-X, the big takeaway from the fifth-gen GS is the turbocharged V-6, the first production V-6 that Toyota will build in its long and illustrious history.

While there hasn’t been any confirmation coming from either Toyota or Lexus, there is an argument to be made for Lexus to get a turbo V-6, none more so than the increased importance being placed by automakers in downsizing their engines as a way of addressing the increasingly stringent emissions regulations. For its part, Lexus also needs a forced induction V-6 because a lot of its competitors already utilize a similar engine in some form or capacity. It may be time for Toyota’s premium brand to join the fray in that regard and expand its V-6 offerings past the turbocharged inline-sixes that it has used in the past.

If Toyota does take this step, don’t sleep on the possibility of another model eventually using the same engine. Again, this is all speculation but if Toyota wants to maximize the seemingly limitless potential of the returning Supra sports car, having a turbocharged V-6 as an engine option is a great way to do it. At the very least, it would be able to make a big statement in differentiating the sports car with the Toyota GT 86, which currently uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. That’s been one of Toyota’s goals anyway so it only makes sense for the company to give the Supra the same turbo V-6 that it is reportedly developing for the Lexus GS.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus GS 450h F Sport – Driven

The Lexus GS has been on U.S. shores since 1993, and since then has grown both in size and in luxury. That growth has occurred over four generations with various mid-cycle refreshes in between. The first generational change took place in 1997. The design lasted until 2000 when a refresh debuted for the 2001 model year. Five years later, the third generation GS debuted for the 2006 model year. The fourth and current generation debuted for the 2013 model year and just recently received its mid-cycle refresh for the 2016 model year.

This most recent iteration of the GS sedan brings the large Lexus Spindle grille that’s found across the brand’s lineup. The new face is more aggressive and striking, suggesting the Lexus GS is no longer a soft, cushy cruiser built for the retirement crowd. In fact, the GS has broken that mold. The car’s more youthful and muscular stance now places it more squarely against competitors like Audi, BMW, and Mercedes.

Adding to that muscular stance is the optional F Sport package. Check that box and the grille trades its horizontal chrome trim for an X-pattern mesh and larger air inlets down low. F Sport-specific wheels and badges are also added. Comparably, the F Sport package is like BMW’s M Sport – both add sporty features but aren’t the range-topping performance iterations. Leave that to BMW’s M division and Lexus’ F brand. And yes, the GS does offer a full-on GS F version, all-new for 2016, with a 467-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8.

However, I recently found the 2016 GS 450h F Sport in my driveway. As you might suspect, the “h” stands for hybrid. This version packs a V-6 and a battery pack, along with the eagle-eyed F Sport package for good measure. In a sense, the GS 450h F Sport is a true jack-of-all-trades. Keep reading to see what it’s like to live with.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus GS F By Gordon Ting/Beyond Marketing

The Lexus GS F sedan may not have the visceral look of its coupe cousin, the RC F Coupe, but the former can still attract an audience wherever it goes — especially if it’s rocking a bright orange wrap that’s impossible to ignore. Such is the scene at the SEMA Auto Show where Lexus, in collaboration with aftermarket shop Gordon Ting/Beyond Marketing, is showcasing a fully customized GS F Sedan.

The revamped GS F is a real looker, and it’s not just because of the blindingly bright orange wrap. It also has quite the list of aftermarket modifications, most of which were installed to improve the sedan’s performance and handling capabilities. There’s an aero kit in there too that gives the GS F an aggressive look and, in case it hasn’t been established enough, the bright orange wrap really does wonders in enhancing the sedan’s already overflowing charisma.

The GS F sedan is one of two models that Lexus and Gordon Ting/Beyond Marketing are presenting at SEMA. The other one is the RC F Coupe and, not surprisingly, it also has a similar orange wrap. These two Lexus models may not win any “best-in” awards, but they’ve certainly made their mark at SEMA.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Lexus GS F Revealed with 467 hp

2016 Lexus GS F-0

Nobody really expects Lexus to come up with a rival for the likes of BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG. But they have gone ahead and done it, if just to show the world they are capable enough to do it. So here’s the 2016 Lexus GS F and it’s an interesting proposition with a 467 horsepower V8 engine.

The latest addition to Lexus’s F family is also one of the last living naturally aspirated V8 super saloon. It has the same sweet sounding 5.0 liter unit you find in the IS F and RC F. And as is the case with those cars, the sheer weight of the thing hinders the engine from shining. 2016 Lexus GS F, by the car maker’s own admission, is a sports sedan designed more everyday use than track sessions and stuff like that.

The V8 engine in the new Lexus GS F comes with an 8-speed Sport Direct Shift (SPDS) transmission and features a new Active Sound Control (ASC) which synthesizes the original sound through acoustic design. You also get a torque vectoring differential and Drive Mode Select control offering NORMAL, ECO,  SPORT S, SPORT S+ modes. There is also double wishbone suspension and Brembo brakes. But as mentioned, none of this great features make the GS F a real sporty machine.

One of the aspects of the 2016 Lexus GS F which is good enough to make you consider it over the M5 or E63 is the unique looks. It is so ugly, it actually looks kinda cool! That bold front fascia with race-inspired functional air inlets, triple-beam headlamps, low-slung wide stance, large brake calipers, carbon-fiber rear spoiler and quad exhaust rear diffuser, they all give the GS F an aggressive, purposeful look. And you get the usual high-quality, well-appointed Lexus interior with all the safety and convenience features you’ll ever need.

Mark McNabb had some time with the 2014 Lexus GS 350 F Sport. Check out his thoughts on TopSpeed.com/

The Lexus GS sedan has been around for quite a while, seeing its first U.S. sales in 1993. Built to compete against the likes of BMW’s 5 Series, the GS is segmented between Lexus’ popular IS sedan and the high-rolling LS premium sedan. Now in its fourth generation, the front-engine, rear-drive sedan is better looking and sportier than ever before. But how does it compete?

I recently spent a week getting to know a Nebula Gray GS 350 F Sport around my familiar stomping ground of Central Florida. A short-ish road trip provided an even greater range of roads and conditions in which to put the GS through its paces. Make no bones about it, this is no boy-racer track car, but it’s no luxo party barge either.

Like all GS 350 sedans, my tester came powered by the ubiquitous 3.5-liter V-6, that in this case, makes 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. New for 2014 is an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The F Sport package adds extra adornments that liven up the GS’ appearance, larger wheels and tires, performance-oriented shocks, and larger brakes.

The interior was loaded down with nearly every desirable techno-functionality that makes driving more convenient. A massive, 12.3-inch infotainment screen lives deep in the center dashboard complete with Lexus’ Enform software, satellite radio, heated and cooled front seats, and leather everything.

So jump on down for the full run-down of the 2014 Lexus GS 350 F Sport including video and photos.
