Lexus GS: new entry-level version?
At this time, the range of Lexus GS combines two models, namely IT GS350 versions (305 hp) and 450h (253 hp), whose starting price range between $ 54,000 and $ 71,000.
Relatively high prices, even though most of his vis-a-vis German origin are somewhat more expensive.
However, it should be noted that BMW offers a basic version in its range of cars 5 Series, the price is around $ 53,000. This is the model 528i powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter 241 horsepower.
It is for this reason that Lexus is considering seriously to offer a less expensive version in its selection of sedans Serie 5.
It would be a wise decision which positively affect sales of the manufacturer, including the American and European markets.
Lexus GS 250 and GS300
Remains now whether we will be entitled to a GS engine has four cylinders or six cylinders.
Audi and BMW are masters in the art to provide intermediate size sedan powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder whose power is around 250 horsepower.
It would therefore be very interesting to see Lexus do the same.
Currently, the Lexus IS is Activated by a V6 2.5-liter engine that delivers 204 horsepower power. An engine that may be found under the hood of the next GS entry-level, except that it will put a little more strength so that it can be more competitive.
