GS2005

The 2005 GS 430 delivers an intense driving experience, with all the refinement of a world-class luxury vehicle. Its powerful engine dominates the road, with a 0-to-60 time of only 5.8 seconds [1], while the luxurious interior cabin never lets you forget you're driving a Lexus.

The balance between luxury and performance is apparent throughout the GS 430. Its front seats are heated and ergonomically designed for comfort, yet upholstered in perforated leather much like cars built for the track. Meanwhile, high performance is not just limited to the way it drives, but to the entire experience of the car. The sound system alone comes with an in-dash, six-disc CD auto-changer and an available Mark Levinson® Premium Audio System [2].

For convenience, the GS 430 comes with a Lexus Memory System, which controls the driver's seat, outside rearview mirrors and steering wheel. There's also a power moonroof, an available DVD navigation system [3] and some of the most technologically advanced safety features. Because sometimes the ultimate luxury is peace of mind.

GS2005

The 2005 GS 300 sport sedan is an achievement in power and luxury. It grips the road with invigorating handling, and its considerable power comes from a 3.0-liter in-line 6 engine. Its interior, on the other hand, is pure serenity, with an amazingly smooth ride and the rich sounds of an available Mark Levinson® Premium Audio System.

The GS delivers its exhilarating ride with a set of 225-millimeter tires and an available rear spoiler. All of this is balanced with technologically advanced safety features and the kind of luxury that is to be expected of a Lexus. Standard features include a power tilt-and-slide moonroof with one-touch open/close and a sliding sunshade, as well as an in-dash, six-disc CD auto-changer.

Rely upon your common sense to decide whether or not to follow a specified route. Detailed coverage not available in every city. Optional periodic geographic updates available at an additional cost. On vehicles equipped with the available Lexus DVD Navigation System, the compass is displayed on the navigation screen. See your Navigation Owner's Manual and your Lexus dealer for further details. [4] Lexus Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details. [5] Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions. [6] The Lexus driver's, front passenger's, front seat-mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags are Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS). The driver's and front passenger's airbags are designed to deploy in severe (usually frontal) collisions where the magnitude and duration of the forward deceleration of the vehicle exceed the design threshold level. The side airbags and front side curtain airbags are designed to deploy in certain types of severe side-impact collisions. In all other accidents, the airbags will not deploy. To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seatbelt, sit upright in the middle of the seat, and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of a deploying airbag SRS may cause serious injury or death. Please see your Owner's Manual for further instructions. [7] 96 watts at 0.1% THD. [8] On vehicles equipped with the available Lexus DVD Navigation System, the compass is displayed on the navigation screen. [9] Continuous average power, all channels driven, at 0.01% THD; 20-20,000 Hz. [10] Optional 17 x 8.0-in wheels with 235/45ZR17 tires are expected to experience greater tire wear than the standard equipment tires, 225/55VR16. Tire life may be substantially less than 15,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. Your riding comfort may decrease and road noise may increase during driving. Please consider all this when selecting a GS 430 equipped with this option. [11] 2004 EPA-estimated mpg. Actual mileage may vary.
