Which GS F does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
The GS F elevates Lexus' sport sedan game to its highest level yet. By borrowing the high-performance V8 from its RC F coupe and revising its brakes and suspension, Lexus has infused plenty of attitude into the 2017 GS F.
Now that the GS F has received continuously variable dampers, one of its primary needs has been addressed. It now promises the kind of latitude in ride quality that it lacked last year. The only other areas of improvement that continue to stand out are the Remote Touch interface and the few ways to tailor the look and feel of the GS F to your liking.
2017 Lexus GS F configurations
Because Lexus has made the GS F its range-topping model, it comes equipped with a long list of standard features. In fact, the only optional features are premium audio, orange-painted brake calipers, polished wheels and a head-up display. All of the performance-related stuff is covered in the base price, including its fancy new continuously variable dampers, known as F-Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) in Lexus-speak.
The GS F is equipped with a non-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 (467 horsepower, 389 pound-feet of torque) that is backed by an eight-speed automatic transmission. Unlike the RC F coupe, the GS F is offered exclusively with an electronically controlled differential. (The RC F offers this unit as an option over a mechanical Torsen differential, which we prefer.)
Among its long list of standard equipment are 10-way power-adjustable seats, automatic wipers, forged 19-inch wheels, keyless entry and ignition, Lexus Enform Remote (a smartphone app that includes a vehicle finder, remote unlocking and starting, and climate control operation), a power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, a backup camera, a 12-speaker audio system and navigation.

2017 Lexus GS F for Sale
The GS is Lexus' answer to midsize rear-drive European luxury sedans, however, the GS F adds a twist: a performance-oriented V8 engine from Lexus' RC-F sport coupe. We've come to like the Lexus GS, particularly the carmaker's willingness to improve it year after year. And 2017 brings a significant change to the Lexus GS F: Continuously variable dampers, which promise to make a noticeable improvement in the car's ride quality.
At the heart of the GS is a naturally aspirated (non-turbocharged) 5.0-liter V8 that produces 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque, delivered to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. It's quick, though many of its competitors are quicker. The GS F features an electronically controlled differential, which is an option on the smaller RC-F. The chassis is further upgraded over the standard GS with stiffer springs and optional orange-painted brake calipers
The EPA estimates the 2017 Lexus GS F's fuel economy at 19 mpg combined (15 city/24 highway). Though the GS F doesn't stand head and shoulders among its sport-sedan rivals, we like what it brings to the table: It is a solid performer and a very engaging car to drive.
This being a Lexus, we expect luxury to go with our performance, and the GS F delivers: Materials quality is high and build quality is on par with the proverbial brick outhouse. Backseat space is good, but the trunk is tight, and never the twain shall meet as the GS F's rear seat does not fold down. Our biggest complaint, though, is the Remote Touch interface, which uses an input device not unlike a computer mouse. The paradigm will be familiar to anyone who uses a desktop computer, the problem being that when one uses a computer, one is looking at the screen; when one drives a car, one should be looking at the road. We think Remote Touch requires too much of the driver's attention to be diverted from the road ahead.
Lexus sells the GS F in a single trim level, and the list of standard equipment is long (though the price is high). The GS F is offered with several options and packages, some useful and some not. What's the best way to spec out your own car? Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2017 Lexus GS F for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Lexus GS F?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
