Introduction

The Lexus GS is a rear-wheel-drive sports sedan, not to be confused with the Lexus ES front-wheel-drive near-luxury family sedan. It competes with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, and Infiniti Q70. It was last redesigned in 2013. Changes for 2018 are minimal.

However the newest model, the 2.0-liter turbo introduced for 2017, gets its name changed from GS 200t to GS 300. And the GS 350, with a V6, gets five more horsepower. Also the Enform safety connect and service connect features come free for ten years.

The 2018 Lexus GS 300 2.0 turbo makes 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to a paddle-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. It can accelerate from zero to 60 in 7.2 seconds, which isn’t so quick for a sports sedan, but the paddle-shifters help the kickdown response. It gets good fuel mileage, which is the reason it was introduced into the lineup: an EPA-estimated 29/34 mpg City/Highway, 31 mpg Combined. But GS 300 requires Premium fuel, so there goes the savings. So do all the other GS models, including the hybrid.

The 2018 Lexus GS 350 feels more like a sports sedan, with its 3.5-liter V6 having direct injection, variable valve timing, and making 311 horsepower; it too uses the paddle-shifting eight-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is available with the GS 350, but that uses an older six-speed automatic. The GS 350 shortens the zero-to-sixty time to 5.7 seconds, but sucks the fuel consumption down to 23 Combined miles per gallon.

The GS 450h hybrid with rear-wheel drive is two-tenths quicker to 60 mph than the GS 350, while getting the same 29/34/31 mpg as the GS 300. Its speed comes from an Atkinson-cycle version of the V6, mated to a 147-kilowatt motor and 30-kilowatt nickel-metal-hydride battery pack, for a total of 338 horsepower, with and 257-pound feet of torque. The downside is it doesn’t have sporty handling, and any other sportiness it might have is stolen by its continuously variable transmission.

The GS F Sport brings the sporty. The F Sport package is available with every model, and features a sports suspension along with sportier exterior and interior trim, and upgraded features. A GS F Sport might compete with the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD.

If the F Sport isn’t enough, there is the GS F that competes with the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, Cadillac CTS-V, and Audi RS 7. It uses a 5.0-liter V8 making a 467-horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque, to accelerate from zero to sixty in a fairly blistering 4.5 seconds. With both direct injection and port injection, and using both the Otto and Atkinson cycles, it gets 19 miles per gallon Combined. That might not sound like much, but for 467 horsepower it’s impressive.

Lineup

The 2018 GS 300 comes with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, 8-speed automatic, and rear-wheel drive. includes 10-way power seats, leather in soft hues, 10 airbags, rearview camera, satellite radio, iPod, Bluetooth with audio streaming, and Remote Touch, the mouse-like controller. Options include active cruise control with emergency braking, a head-up display, and night vision.

GS 350 comes with a V6 engine and is available with rear-wheel drive and the eight-speed transmission, or all-wheel drive and the six-speed.

The GS 450h features the hybrid gas-electric powertrain, CVT, and rear-wheel drive.

GS F features the high-performance 5.0-liter V8 engine, eight-speed automatic with Sport Direct-Shift, and rear-wheel drive.

Walkaround

The large spindle grille announces Lexus. It’s drawn like an hourglass with boomerang shapes on each side. The L-shaped headlamps bristle with LED lighting including turn signals and daytime running lights, while the taillamps are LED as well.

Naturally the F Sport model is more aggressive, with a bolder spindle at the grille, air intakes for the transmission and oil coolers, and aerodynamic tweaks. The wide front fenders have vents that draw hot air out from under the hood. Big rocker panels lower the sides, while a carbon-fiber spoiler and quadruple exhaust outlets coming from a diffuser make the car look mean from the rear.

Interior

Compared to most other Lexuses, the cabin of the GS, especially the instrument panel, seems Spartan. But the fit and finish is excellent, with one exception: the haptic joystick on the console fits with a gap at its side. Overall the cabin is elegant, warm and inviting, thanks a lot to soft ambient lighting around the edges. And the materials are a cut above those in the German luxury sedans, with padded leather panels and wood trim in rich shades. The leather seams are carefully stitched, but it might be overkill, there are so many.

The instrument panel features big gauges that are crisp and clear, along with a huge 12.3-inch high-resolution display. The plastics are of a high quality, with metallic trim around the analog clock that has become almost a Lexus affectation, stubbornly present despite being hard to read. The glovebox is deep, the center console has a sliding cover, and the door pockets are useful, so small storage is adequate.

The 10-way power seats are comfortable and supportive, while the available 18-way power seats have heating and ventilation. The F Sport seats have more bolstering for hard cornering. The GS F seats are exceptionally comfortable and supportive, in perforated leather to match the steering wheel, with other Alcantara leather bits elsewhere. Also aluminum pedals and carbon fiber trim.

The rear has good head room, but only enough knee room for small children, so it’s not much consolation that the rear doors are wide. That makes it easier to climb into a place where you won’t want to be, but at least it’s also easier to make a quick getaway which you’ll want to do. Heated seats and climate control in the rear are available, to be enjoyed by pampered small children.

The trunk is shallow but the opening is wide and there’s a pass-through for long objects like skis.

Driving Impressions

The Lexus GS models have different driving dynamics.

The GS 300 is afflicted with turbo lag, a frustrating pause when you floor it. Even the Sport Plus mode can’t fix it. The eight-speed transmission can be fussy going uphill, too quick to upshift and downshift; sometimes you have to switch to Manual mode and shift yourself with the paddles, just to get it to stop shifting too much in the Normal mode.

In the GS 350, the 311-horsepower V6 solves the acceleration issue, especially above 3000 rpm. Sport mode is clearly sporty, in the manner it works the eight-speed transmission. The all-wheel-drive GS 350 with its older six-speed transmission is a bit less quick.

The GS 450h hybrid is fast, comfortable and quiet, with a semi-active suspension. It offers less driving feel than the other GS models, but then hybrids aren’t known for their feeling of connectedness to the road. An F Sport package helps, but it can’t bring much soul to the CVT transmission; although Lexus has helped some, by programming eight steps into the transmission so it feels more like an automatic.

Driving modes of Eco, Sport, Sport+, and EV each further re-program the CVT and the light-touch electric power steering. The brakes have regenerative rigidity with not much braking sensation.

All GS models have electric power steering that’s nimble and communicative, and a lightweight multi-link suspension front and rear that provides a tight ride but low tolerance for bumps. With its stiff chassis, the GS handles well on standard 17-inch, 50-series tires, while the ride is more composed than most of its rivals. An adaptive suspension and active steering are available, and they do set a new benchmark on the F Sports, but we don’t think the GS needs it. The GS actually feels capable on the track.

Active rear steering is available; it turns the rear wheels a tiny bit, in the opposite direction of the fronts, to pivot the car, adding stability in quick moves.

The 5.0-liter V8 in the GS F revs to 7300 rpm with a sweet howl, piped into the cabin and heard like background music through two speakers, one front, one rear. It’s normally aspirated, so it’s not as fast as the supercharged Cadillac CTS-V or turbocharged BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG. But at 4034 pounds, the GS F weighs 111 pounds less than the Cadillac, and 356 pounds less than the fat German M5.

You can feel that relative lightness in the handling. Its dynamic personality is small, thanks also to torque-vectoring that makes the car respond better in turns. In Normal mode, the steering is light and delightfully quick. If you push it past the grip of the sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, the stability control will save you. If you switch to Sport S or Sport S+ mode, and put the differential in Slalom or Track mode, the F is happy to grip and rotate for you.

And it stops quickly like a lighter car, with big Brembo brakes using 15-inch front rotors and 13.5-inch rears. The eight-speed automatic transmission is crisp, smooth and responsive, although not as sharp as a good dual-clutch like the BMW.

The suspension is double-wishbone front and multi-link rear. Two front arms and two rear links are aluminum, reducing unsprung weight. The chassis is stiffened with four underbody braces, while the shocks, springs and bushings are firmer, and the steering geometry both front and rear is changed. The ride is reasonable, so it’s a fairly comfortable cruiser.

Summary

The GS 300 suffers from lazy acceleration and turbo lag, but gets good mileage. The GS 350 has the speed but gets much less mileage. The GS 450h hybrid has both speed and mileage but suffers from soft handling and a CVT transmission. The GS F is a worthy super-sport sedan, but very expensive. All of the GS sedans have a rear seat that’s too small, and require Premium fuel.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
