If you are looking for a mid-size luxury sedan with high performance and top-notch technology and equipment, then you should check out the Lexus GS. This model is available in several variants including the GS 300 (for the 2018 model year, the GS 200t has been renamed GS 300) GS 350, GS 450h and GS F. However, now we will talk about the upcoming 2019 Lexus GS 350 F.
The GS 350 is a strong, sufficiently spacious and attractive sedan which is available with F Sport Package which gives it sportier appearance with larger tires and brakes, and better ride quality and improved agility. The interior is cozy especially for the front-seat passengers but the rear occupants might feel a bit crowded. The 2018 model year has brought several changes including the new name for the base model, and the Enform Safety and Service Connect package which is complimentary for 10 years. On the other hand, the newest 2019 model year will probably carry over the same design, engine options, and technology as the current model. Perhaps it might get just some small upgrades in the equipment, but we still don’t know it for sure.
Engine and performance of the 2019 Lexus GS 350 F
The 2019 Lexus GS 350 F will use the same engine as the current model. It is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine. This unit is able to generate 311 horses and 280 pound-feet of torque. This engine will work with an 8-speed automatic in rear-wheel drive model. With all-wheel drive system, the engine will pair with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. As for the fuel economy, it gets 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
Exterior and interior design
As for the exterior, the 2019 Lexus GS 350 F will keep the same attractive and handsome styling of the current model. It looks bold with aggressive design of the front fascia and muscular lines. The front end is marked by the large spindle grille and prominent LED headlamps. Furthermore, the rear fascia is dominated by the horizontal lines, distinctive LED taillights, and dual chrome exhaust outlets. The 350 F version will ride on the larger 19-inch alloy wheels like the GS F model. It will also get mesh inserts on the grille and aluminum trim.
The interior of the 2019 Lexus GS 350 F is all about the comfort, premium materials, and advanced technology. The front seats are highly supportive and cozy and the driver’s seat is 16-way power adjustable. The leather upholstery is standard too. The cabin also features LED ambient lighting which is placed on the doors and the center console, aluminum trim, and aluminum pedals. On the center of the dash, there is an 8.0-inch or a 12.3-inch touchscreen depending on a trim level. Speaking of the equipment, the standard features will include Bluetooth, audio system with 12 speakers, dual-zone climate control, Lexus’ Remote Touch infotainment system, navigation, USB, a sunroof and so on.
Release date and price
The release date of the 2019 Lexus GS 350 F is still not known to the public. The pricing should be the same as the current model and it is roughly $52,000.
