Lexus News: 2016 Lexus GS Gets A New Face, Turbo-Four

Recommended Posts

It was at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where Lexus introduced us to the fourth-generation GS sedan. Well, Lexus has chosen Pebble Beach once again to introduce us to updated GS.


The big news for the GS is a new base GS 200t. As the name suggests, this new trim gets Lexus' turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Paired with an eight-speed automatic, Lexus says the GS 200t will get 33 MPG combined. Along with the new turbo-four, Lexus is also giving the GS 350 a slight boost in power. The 350's V6 will now produce 311 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque (up from 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque).


The other big news deals with the GS' design. The front end gets a bolder take on the spindle grille and bi-LED headlights. New wheel choices, revised taillights, and new trim finish off the exterior changes. The interior gets new choices for trim and leather, along with navigation becoming standard on all models except the 200t.

The profile & rear are generic, bland & heavily dated.

Clearly, the front end isn't production, not remotely possible any existing, major studio would approve it for public sale.

This clever mask, hiding the actual production nose, is worse than the Aztek's face.

When is the full unveiling?

The new Lexuses are butt ugly, I don't get why people buy them.  I am just glad now that they can't make an ad about how it has more standard horsepower than the Germans.  Because for years the GS had one engine choice, the 306 hp V6 which was indeed more than competitors base model, but all those competitors had 400 and 500 options that Lexus failed to mention.

That is one ugly Sucker Fish Faced Predator mouthed car that just needs to die. Who the hell approved this garbage? Really Lexus, you now made your line even uglier.


Side and rear is geriatrics boring, the front end is just plan awful.

They just keep getting uglier... and they keep selling.  I don't get it.

Winning indeed!  Although personally I would lie a manual ATS
