2019 Lexus GS New Design, Price, Specs and
Release Date – The car received a rather large
update with the 2015 model, but this didn’t include all that
many upgrades under the skin. While there are quite a few
rumors about the discontinuation of the GS model, it looks like
these may not be entirely true. Not that long ago details about
the upcoming 2019 Lexus GS started to arise. It seems that
Lexus will replace the lesser versions of the car with the ES.

However, they are still going to sell the GS as the sports
offering, and so far it looks like the car may be quite
impressive. The new GS is expected to be based on Toyota’s new
TNGA modular architecture. However, instead of being front
wheel drive like the ES, the car will retain its rear wheel
drive setup. This will be possible because it will actually
share most of its components with the more premium LS. The
difference will be that the GS will boast a shorter wheelbase
despite being nearly as wide and as low.
The car will also be quite a bit longer than the ongoing model
which should mean that there will be more room inside the cabin
as well. While at first most said the car was going to be
replaced, things changed since the prototype for the 2019 Lexus
GS has been spied on the Nurburgring. It looks like the car
will get quite a bit more aggressive than its predecessor in
order to be able to compete in an upper class.
From the early spy shots, it seems the car will boast a
fastback design which wasn’t really the case up until now. In
the front, it will still feature Lexus’ polarizing grille but
this time around it will get a slightly slimmer design which
should elevate things a bit more.

The headlights seem to be swept back while the bumper looks to
hide really big intakes which would further increase its
aggressiveness. We are quite sure that the 2019 Lexus GS will
share a lot of design cues with both the ES and the LS. Expect
the car to feature a really conservative design inside with the
same type of dashboard design and very similar materials to the
other two cars. The big difference will likely be the materials
Some suggested the GS could come with carbon fiber inserts and
Alcantara instead of the usual leather and aluminum found in
the other two cars. The GS is also expected to feature a much
lower driving position which would give the passengers a much
sportier experience than otherwise.
It has been confirmed a while ago that the upcoming 2019 Lexus
GS will feature a wide array of powertrains. The base model is
more than likely going to stick to a 2.0 liter
turbocharged-four good for around 250 horsepower and 270 lb-ft
This should be enough to allow the car to basically match its
rivals when it comes to performance and fuel consumption.
Further up the range, the car will likely receive a new
turbocharged V6 gasoline engine. So far the details about this
are still unknown, but it looks like it may be a downsized LS
engine offering around 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.
Both of these are expected to be available with an automatic
gearbox only with either rear or all wheel drive. A
high-performance version of the GS is also a real possibility.
So far they don’t really have a suitable engine for it. Even
so, it is safe to assume that a twin-turbo V6 with north of 500
horsepower is a real possibility
Release Date and Price
So far there has been no available information about its
release date. Even so, it looks like the car may be showcased
in late 2018 with a market release in early 2019. Its price is
more than likely going to hover around $50,000 which is quite a
bit more than the ES or the current GS. The price increase
would allow Lexus to focus on the higher end market and it
should give them a chance against cars like the new BMW 6
Series Grand Coupe.
