The GS first made its debut under Toyota’s luxury Lexus division in 1991. During its time on the market, there were a total of four generations.

The fourth and final version was released in 2011 and remained on the market until its discontinuation, when it was replaced by the Lexus ES in the European market.

Like most Lexus models, there have been various grades of the GS. These consist of the smallest 250, the mid-grade 350 and 450h, and the most powerful F Sport versions. The ‘h’ in some of these indicate their hybrid powertrains.

Lexus also manufactured a high-performance version called the GS-F, which is comparable to the models like the BMW M5. It features a powerful engine, aggressive sport styling, and various additional other mechanical upgrades.

Within each grade, there were various different trims for customers to choose from. For the latest generation, these trims consisted of the base Executive Edition, Luxury, F SPORT, and finally the Premier.

Competitors consist of other popular luxury sedans like the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Engines have typically ranged from a turbocharged 2.0 L inline-4 up to a 5.0 L V8 found in certain GS-F models.

Lexus never released a diesel variant for this model.

These engines were mated with various transmissions, including a continuously variable transmission that is found with the hybrid powertrains. Other notable variants include 6-speed and 8-speed automatics. Older versions were fitted with both 4-speed and 5-speeds transmissions.

The GS received a good reception in the early 2000s, but declining popularity of sedans due to the rising popularity of crossovers were cited as the cause of the GS’s retirement two decades later.
