Lexus is bringing us another luxurious mid-size vehicle. With new engine and updated features, 2016 Lexus GS will truly be a step up from its predecessor.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
When it comes to its design, new GS will arguably be one of the most attractive Lexus models on the market. The body kit will be lower and wider. Bigger air intakes will contribute to the improved aerodynamics. New model will be equipped with a set of 19-inch wheels. From the outside, new GS will have a sportier and stylish appearance. Front side of the vehicle will feature a lower grille with carbon fiber elements. Headlights will also be redesigned and will be equipped with the LED technology. Angular running lamps will be placed above the headlights. The back side will also have a modern look thanks to the darker taillights and a new bumper. Luxurious design will be continued to the cabin of the new 2016 Lexus GS. The interior will feature a lot of premium materials including leather, carbon fiber and wood. Bucket seats will provide high level of comfort for its passengers and will come with heating and cooling options.
2016 LEXUS GS ENGINE
Under the hood of the new model will be a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine which will be able to produce up to 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission system and come with new Torque Vectoring Differential. New 2016 Lexus GS will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds while the top speed is expected to be around 175 mph which is great comparing to its competition. When it comes to the fuel economy, there are no information about it yet but we are hoping those will be released soon.
