The GS is the Lexus answer to midsize, rear-wheel-drive European luxury sedans. But the 2018 Lexus GS F adds a twist: a performance-oriented V8 engine from Lexus' RC F sport coupe. We've come to like the Lexus GS, and the F version is without question the most appealing version, boasting a distinctive personality that not only stands out from other GS versions but from other high-performance sedans as well.
At the heart of the GS is a non-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque, delivered to the rear wheels by an eight-speed automatic transmission. Though many of its competitors are quicker, the GS F nevertheless makes up for its acceleration shortcomings with the sort of visceral sounds and sensations that can only come from a non-turbocharged V8.
The performance upgrades don't stop with the bigger engine, though. It also gets a torque-vectoring rear differential, an adaptive sport-tuned suspension, sport steering, four-wheel Brembo ventilated brakes, 19-inch forged wheels, a four-port sport exhaust and aerodynamic enhancements.
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 a par with the proverbial brick outhouse. Backseat space is good, but the trunk is tight and the 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 you use a computer, you are looking at the screen; when you drive a car, you 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 2018 Lexus GS F for you.
