311 Horsepower in the GS 350 AWD
A stirring experience awaits with a 3.5-litre, 311hp engine. Combining direct fuel injection and additional port fuel injectors results in crisp responsiveness and impressive power. Throw in the 6-speed sequential shift with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and you have a vehicle touting equal parts luxury and high performance.
Drive Mode Select
Not every drive is the same. As a result, your GS comes prepared. Outfitted with three distinct modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport. You can be sure to make the best of fuel efficiency in Eco, enjoy a regular drive in Normal, and exceed performance expectations in Sport. An available S+ mode (that comes standard on F SPORT packages) tightens the suspension and increases the steering wheel response creating an even sharper acceleration with more a direct vehicle response.
F Sport Performance
Adaptive Variable Suspension in the front and rear enrich the drive along with Drive Mode Select. The instrument panel glows red as powertrain input is enhanced and stability control parameters are relaxed for less intrusion. A head-up display system keeps pertinent information on the windshield, for a noticeably futuristic experience.
Advanced All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
Lexus GS 350 AWD includes front, rear and centre differentials and distributes 70 percent of the drive power to the rear wheels and 30 percent to the front. When wheel slippage occurs in less than ideal road conditions, the system employs traction control to achieve improved traction by automatically transferring power, with up to 50 percent being transferred to the front wheels. The result is a lightweight system that delivers high levels of stability and drivability.
