(TORONTO, ON – January 6, 2015) – Lexus is yet again showing its sporty disposition and rumbling into Detroit. The luxury vehicle manufacturer has announced the much-anticipated GS F performance sedan, which combines a refined four-door package with the speed and agility of a premium sports car, it will be revealed at the North American International Auto Show on Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 8:45 am EST in the Lexus display at Cobo Center in Detroit. The GS F will be the latest vehicle to join Lexus’ high-performance “F” line, which already includes the RC F coupe.

Although the GS 350 F SPORT shares the same platform as the new GS F; they’re not to be confused. The GS F will have enhancements throughout, including its engine. Under the hood will be a responsive, naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8, that produces a remarkable 473PS (467hp)* at 7,100 rpm and peak torque of 53.7kgf-m (389 lb.-ft.) * at 4,800-5,600rpm. As powerful as the engine is, the DOHC 32-valve powerplant is also fuel efficient, incorporating the Atkinson cycle under driving conditions. Befitting the nature of this high performance sedan, the engine will be mated to a lightning quick eight-speed automatic gearbox with manual-shifting capabilities.


Lexus’ innovative Torque Vectoring Differential (TVD); also found in the RC F, will be part of a long line of standard equipment that will make the GS F’s handling stand out from the crowd. The TVD features three operating modes:

  • Standard, (default) providing a balance of agility and firmness;

  • Slalom, emphasizing nimble steering response and agility; and

  • Track , which enhances stability during high-speed circuit driving.


The GS F unibody will also feature structural reinforcements and a suspension exclusively designed to optimize this super sedan’s handling envelope, without detracting from its ride quality. Drivers will appreciate the GS F’s stability and smoothness on the open highway, as well as the sedan’s ability to devour challenging roads, whether they’re winding up the side of a mountain or at a racetrack. The new GS F will offer drivers a very balanced sedan with genuine dual personality, equally adept at trimming lap times and the commute back home.
