The Meade Lexus team can’t get enough of the new 2016 Lexus GS F unveiled in Detroit Michigan! It made its global debut last Tuesday at the North American International Auto Show, and has been talked about ever since. With four doors, room for five and lots of attitude, this model will join the RC F as the second vehicle in the growing stable of F-performance vehicles and will be available later this year.
The Lexus GS F sports sedan is a luxury cruiser with the handling of a sports car. Not to be confused with the GS 350F Sport, the new model builds upon the F Sport with a set of upgrades that include the driveline, suspension and overall tuning to optimize its reflexes. Under the hood, you’ll find a 5.0-liter engine with 467 horsepower and a peak torque of 389 lb ft.
Upgrades can also be found within the vehicle, which was designed to look and feel like a jet fighter’s cockpit. To help drivers enjoy every part of the experience, a form-follows-function theme was implemented for the interior that puts all controls within easy reach of the driver. Behind the exclusive “F” branded steering wheel, there is an electronic instrument cluster that can be configured among four different displays depending on preferred driving style: Normal, Eco, Sport S and Sport S+.
The chief engineer, Yukihiko Yaguchi, said, “With the GS F, we wanted to make a special car that not only would exceed the expectations of the most discerning driving enthusiast, but also something that most people can enjoy. In that way, the GS F embraces the virtues of sound, response, and power, the cornerstones of the Lexus ‘F’ brand.”
