During its time on the market, there were four generations. The fourth version was released in 2011 and remained on the market until its discontinuation. It was then replaced by the Lexus ES in the European market, which is also a 4-door sedan.
Competitors consist of other popular luxury sedans like the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
There have been four grades of the GS. These are the smallest 250, the mid-grade 350 and 450h, and the most powerful F Sport versions.
Another notable version is the GS-F, which is comparable to the BMW M5. It features a larger engine, very aggressive sport styling, and a host of other mechanical upgrades.
Within these grades, there are different trim options. For the latest generation, these trims include the base Executive Edition, Luxury, F SPORT, and Premier.
Engines have typically ranged from a turbocharged 2-liter inline-4 up to a 5-liter V8 found in certain GS-F models. All engines are petrol and petrol hybrids as Lexus did not release any diesel variants.
Hybrid versions are denoted by the ‘h’ suffix given to models like the 450h.
These have been mated with several different transmissions, including a continuously variable transmission that is found with the hybrid powertrains. Other notable gearboxes include 6-speed and 8-speed automatics. Older visions have included both 4-speed and 5-speeds.
The GS received a decent amount of critical acclaim in the early 2000s. However, these awards dropped off over time. The most notable of these include the Best Midsize Luxury Car in 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005 from J.D. Power and Associates
