Lexus offers the 2020 GS in RWD and AWD guise, and there are two trim levels on offer; the base GS 350, and the more aggressive F Sport. Both cars are powered by a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 311 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear, or all four wheels via an eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift automatic and paddle shifters in RWD guise, and a six-speed auto in AWD cars. Standard gear on the base model includes LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights and a power moonroof, dual-zone climate control, heated seats, and a 12.3-inch infotainment display with Bluetooth streaming. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are not available. F Sport models add performance upgrades such as a sport-tuned suspension, larger brakes, and an optional limited-slip differential. The F Sport also adds exclusive front and rear bumpers, as well as a rear spoiler.
As if the Lexus GS wasn't already packed with premium features, new owners get the chance to go even further with optional packages that cover everything from in-car entertainment to styling and more. The base model is available with a $1,380 Mark Levinson premium sound system that features 17 speakers, or for those that hate parking in public; there's a $500 intuitive parking assist package. Other convenience features include a $400 power open and close trunk, and you can even opt for a set of massive 19-inch split five-spoke alloy wheels for $660. The performance-orientated F Sport is available with a $500 Torsen limited-slip differential, $900 head-up display, and a $1,700 Lexus dynamic handling system with rear steering.
