Introducing the new face of Lexus. Where invigorating handling, next-generation technology and unforgettable styling combine to provide an experience that doesn't just raise the bar, it sets a new one altogether.
Lexus engineers traveled the equivalent of 26 times around the Earth to create the ideal driving feel. Sporting a wide track and rigid body courtesy of optimally placed spot- and laser-weld points, the result is a vehicle that will change the way you see Lexus.
Boasting an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters (RWD), one of the most powerful base engines and the core sound of the LFA, the GS takes driver engagement to new heights.
Boasting port and direct injection and the core sound of the LFA, this 3.5-liter V6 is one of the most powerful base engines. It propels the GS from 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds [*] and features dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, designed to provide added torque at lower speeds and greater acceleration at higher speeds.
In Manual mode, the faster-shifting, eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic Electronically Controlled transmission can be controlled with paddle shifters, putting the exhilaration of the 306-horsepower [*] GS at your fingertips.
By automatically increasing the engine speed during manual downshifts, the throttle-blipping function delivers faster and smoother gear changes for greater acceleration and response coming out of corners (RWD only).
While its 34 MPG highway rating [*] and stringent SULEV II emission status might be the envy of many 2.0-liter compacts, don't assume performance was somehow sacrificed in the development of the GS 450h. Not even close. Equipped with the world's first direct-injected Atkinson-cycle engine and dual hybrid-motor system for greater response, it rockets from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds [*] and generates the G-forces of a high-performance V8.
Available Lexus Dynamic Handling coordinates Dynamic Rear Steering and Variable Gear-Ratio Steering designed to anticipate and help deliver the ideal handling behavior for virtually any situation.
Massive 14-inch, two-piece front brake rotors with four-piston calipers decrease unsprung weight and provide enhanced cooling for reduced brake fade.
AVS monitors and adjusts the shock absorber settings at each wheel depending on Drive Mode Select, road surface, vehicle speed and your driving style. Aluminum components with optimized bushings and special F SPORT tuning provide even greater steering response and reduced body lean.
The exclusive 19-inch Dark Graphite wheels [*] found on the rear-wheel drive F SPORT are nearly 13% wider in the rear, providing even greater traction and handling.
This available Lexus-first system can turn the rear wheels in the same direction as the front for optimal agility and stability at high speeds and in the opposite direction at low speeds for precise maneuvering.
Whether you're looking for added exhilaration or taking a relaxing drive through the neighborhood, Drive Mode Select helps you to make your GS more responsive or efficient with the simple turn of the dial.
This mode provides the optimal balance of fuel efficiency, engine performance and, on luxury-equipped models, the degree of road feel.
Sport S mode changes the gauge cluster lighting to a fiery red and alters the powertrain for faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle mapping. Available Sport S+ mode goes a step further by also tightening the suspension and increasing steering response. In both modes, the transmission's shift points are automatically altered coming into and out of corners for sharper acceleration.
In ECO mode, a calming blue light surrounds the gauge cluster while the throttle response and engine power output are moderated for increased fuel efficiency. Other vehicle systems are also optimized for reduced power consumption.
In EV mode [*], the GS Hybrid can be driven for short distances at low speeds on battery power alone. Because the gasoline engine is not engaged, no fuel is consumed, noise is minimized and emissions are eliminated.

The GS is engineered to handle all types of curves—even those thrown by Mother Nature. By monitoring current driving conditions, available all-wheel drive automatically allocates engine power between the front and rear axles from a rear-biased 30/70 (front/rear) to 50/50. This is designed to provide enhanced traction and control on a wide range of road surfaces and in inclement weather.
Available Lexus Enform [*] and Safety Connect [*] offer more than the convenience of live, 24-hour navigation assistance and the ability to request emergency services at the press of a button. With the new App Suite [*], you can make dinner reservations and order movie tickets on the fly using the industry's first available 12.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display.
Imagine an interior filled with sound so crisp and dimensional, it's as if your favorite band were sitting in the car with you. And a system so advanced it can account for the volume and tone of unwanted ambient noise. This is the available 835-watt [*], 17-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System [*].
Two 25-mm titanium dome tweeters with neodymium magnets offer greater rigidity and lower mass than conventional tweeters, providing lower distortion, higher resolution and more natural dynamics.
This innovative component features one motor and two speakers: a 90-mm midrange and 16-mm tweeter. Each of the five Unity speakers in the GS offers 50% greater efficiency than a typical coaxial speaker.
Two 170-mm inverted High Efficiency (HiE) midwoofers help to optimize bass response in a variety of music genres and help fill the passenger compartment with clear sound with minimal distortion.
Two High Efficiency (HiE) woofers with aramid composite cones and neodymium magnets deliver midrange and lower frequencies, including deep bass notes.
A 250-mm double opposing magnet subwoofer with aramid composite cones delivers the lowest frequencies, enhancing the bass performance for all the occupants.
A triumph in automotive audio, its industry-leading GreenEdge™ technology makes its speakers more than twice as powerful as conventional ones, while utilizing less power [*].

Gracenote lets you use voice commands to search your music collection in multiple ways. In addition to exploring by artist, album and genre, it understands nicknames and mispronunciations and can even determine the year a song was released. You can also use it to search for similar styles and create mixes on the fly [*].
With HD Radio [*], you'll experience CD-quality sound on FM stations and improved, crystal-clear reception on AM stations. You can also discover new artists on more than 2,000 stations across the dial. Like the song that's playing but don't know the artist or name? You can easily tag songs for consideration the next time you connect to iTunes [*].
Voice Command enables you to place compatible Bluetooth®-enabled [*] phone calls and operate audio, climate and navigation functions using normal, everyday speech. And now with Siri® Eyes Free [*] mode, you can send e-mails, retrieve text messages and more—without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

Aluminum sport pedals further accentuate the GS F SPORT's aggressive styling.
While an ordinary crash test dummy can provide 119 data points, Lexus uses digital models comprising millions. The result of such an innovative approach to safety: The GS is equipped with a class-leading [*] 10 standard airbag system [*] that includes an all-new side-impact airbag designed to help provide additional support for the rib cage and upper arm.
The Pre-Collision System [*] available on the GS includes a Driver Attention Monitor [*] that is designed to detect if you have your eyes closed or are facing away from the road when an obstacle is detected ahead. If the system determines either condition is met, it will attempt to warn you and, to help you avoid a potential collision, it's designed to automatically begin braking a full two seconds before impact.
When using cruise control, available Lane Keep Assist [*] is designed to read the road's lane markings and steer the vehicle back toward the center of the lane if you begin to veer.
To help you maintain a preset following distance from a vehicle traveling ahead, available Dynamic Radar Cruise Control [*] can regulate the throttle and even apply the brakes. And, when the road ahead clears, it can return your vehicle to the preselected speed.
To help you change lanes with more confidence, the available Blind Spot Monitor [*] is designed to warn you if it detects vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes. And, to help you back out of parking spaces with confidence, its Rear Cross-Traffic Alert [*] feature helps detect and warn you of vehicles approaching from behind on either side.
