Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The major change for the 2014 Lexus GS is an 8-speed automatic transmission for the rear-wheel-drive version of the GS 350. New technology features include additions to the Blind Spot Monitor and Pre-Collision System, some options changes, a new Ultra-Luxury Package and refinements to various features.
A full restyle, inside and out, gives the 2013 Lexus GS sedans an edgier appearance an adds new levels of luxury, while extensive re-engineering efforts yield a car that's both more economical and more fun to drive, particularly when fitted with the optional F Sport Package.
The biggest news here is that the GS 460 replaces the GS 430 as the top entry in the GS lineup, bringing more power and enhanced luxury. Exterior changes to all models include revamps to the front fascia, wheel design and color choices, while the interiors feature new instrument graphics and accent bits, a broader array of wood trims and UV and infrared-reducing tinted glass.
To the Lexus reputation of refined luxury the 2014 GS line adds first-rate dynamic driving performance and eye-catching styling. All-new last year, the GS 350's defining characteristic is enthusiastic motoring, with a robust 3.5-liter V6 of 306 horsepower, rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), a sophisticated blend of compliant ride and assertive handling and numerous advanced technology features, all wrapped up in a distinctive look that stands apart from the mid-size sedan crowd. For the efficiency-minded there's the GS 450h hybrid. The 2014 Lexus GS is in a tough segment with the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but the GS is a real contender for discerning sports-sedan buyers, offering sparkling performance, superb handling and the Lexus tradition of excellence in fit, finish and reliability.

"Handles very well, extremely quiet with a growl when you step on it. Voice controls are frustrating, why not a 7 or 8 speed for better gas mileage which is around 25 on hwy for me. Seats are the best and most comfortable I have ever sat in. No fog lights on the F sport??? Nav system dated."

"I have been a proud owner since July last year...I dont regret this one bit...I have seen a lot of folks who are very biased towards German cars but i do request you to take a test drive of the GS 350 F sport model before you decide on buying the car... My favorite features of the car.. 1) Pleasure to drive - Remarkable handling in all driving modes...Love the Sport modes ..The variable suspension kicks in and also the braking power is better with the sport modes..Feels very safe and sturdy always...also has a remarkably small turning radius compared to other cars in the league 2) Gorgeous interior....Luxurious leather interiors compared to a more plasticky feel in the Beamers and other German cars... 3) Decent mpg with for a 3.5 liter engine...I get an avg of 22 mpg with a lot of city driving... 4) Love the add on features like the dynamic radar cruise control...Car stops if the car ahead of you comes to a stop on the freeway... Lexus stand for luxury..comfort...and an awesome driving feel...its for car lovers of all kinds... Please test drive the GS 350 F sport before going for other cars in the same league which will cost you 20k more..."
