Will the next Lexus GS make it into production?

By Faiming_low on 20 Mar 2017 in Other blogs

Attached Image According to an online source, the Lexus GS luxury sedan may be dropped after its current generation production ends.

In the January issue of Japanese magazine MAG-X, Lexus Enthusiast, an online lexus forum, has discovered a report in it claiming that the GS will be dropped in 2018. The successor was supposed to be launched in the same year too.

In the article, Toyota is believed to have suspended the development of the next-generation GS after realising that it is no longer needed in the firm’s range. It cite that the new LS luxury sedan would overlap with the V6-powered GS with its newly-adopted V6 engine. The last LS was powered by an eight cylinder engine.

I am reluctant to trade in from the new V6 LS because I doubt V6 can be smooth as V8. Also turbo charge is not exactly conforting.

It would be good if they can squeeze more power from normally aspirated engine then the need to strap turbo or supwrcharger. After all this is not a sports car.

Read this Rumour article before, but LS replace GS due to engine size same? 1st they are price very differently and GS and ES more competiting with E class, 5 series and A6 category just one more into sporty GS the other more comfort/ cheaper version Lux ES. LS towards s class and 7 series... In SG LS cost abt $500k or slightly lesser and GS $280k and below depending on model... So quite a bit different financial/ Budget or people willing to spend customers
