2020 Lexus GS OVERVIEW

What's New

The mid-size 2020 Lexus GS sedan soldiers on, but the GS 300 and GS 300 F Sport models have been dropped. Rumors persist that the GS lineup will come to an end, as it hasn’t been updated since 2013.

Choosing Your Lexus GS

Lexus now offers the GS in three trims: GS 350, GS 350 F Sport, and GS F. Pricing starts at $52,420 including destination for the GS 350 and climb all the way up to $86,035 for the high-performance GS F.

Engine Choices

The GS 350 and GS 350 F Sport models have a 3.5-liter V6 engine, while the GS F gets a 5.0-liter V8.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.5L V6311 hp280 lb-ft23 mpg
5.0L V8467 hp389 lb-ft19 mpg

Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard across the range, but all-wheel drive is available on the GS 350 and GS 350 F Sport. Surprisingly, moving to AWD lowers the cost of the base model by $330, but it's a $1,745 premium on GS 350 F Sport models.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Lexus GS seats five passengers, but the drivetrain tunnel intrudes on the rear seat’s middle position, which makes it more suited for four. In any case, the seats are plush and very comfortable, front and back. Choose the GS F, and the front sport bucket seats are firmer and offer better bolstering.

Trunk storage is one of this model’s strong suits, measuring 18.4 cubic feet, which is one of the largest in its class. The rear seats don't fold down, but there's a center pass-through for holding longer objects. The GS F's trunk only offers 14.0 cubic feet.

Safety Features

Lexus equips all GS trims with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Front and rear parking sensors are a $500 standalone option. On GS 350 F Sport and GS F models, a head-up display is available for $900.


Standard equipment includes a 12.3-inch color display, a 12-speaker audio system with a DVD player, HD Radio, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, Siri Eyes Free, a USB port, and navigation. A 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system is a $1,380 option.

GS 350 - From $52,420

The GS 350 comes with LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and a moonroof. Inside, the seats are covered in imitation leather and heated up front. A power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, dual-zone climate control, and 10-way power front seats are standard.

A heated and leather-trimmed steering wheel is a $150 standalone option, while a power open/close trunk costs $400.

GS 350 F Sport - From $53,785

The GS 350 F Sport builds on the standard model and adds 19-inch alloy wheels and a specially tuned adaptable suspension system. Inside, F Sport front seats, 16-way power front seats, digital instrumentation, expanded drive mode select, and variable gear-ratio steering are included.

A Torsen limited-slip rear differential is a $500 option, as are orange brake calipers for $300.

GS F - From $86,035

In keeping with its performance attributes, the GS F has the V8 engine. This model comes with special trim, including a black grille with chrome surround, 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, performance tires, and a rear spoiler. Performance enhancements include cooling ducts, a variable suspension, a torque-vectoring rear differential, and a quad-tip exhaust system.

Inside, the high-back sport seats are covered in perforated leather with F embossing on the front headrests. Black carbon fiber trim, performance-inspired instrumentation, heated and ventilated front seats, ambient lighting, and aluminum pedals are other features of note.
