Welcome to Ken Shaw Lexus, your certified Lexus dealership in Toronto, Ontario. We are presenting the new 2017 GS. You can find all the relevant information below. Enjoy!
Grasp the wheel of Lexus GS, and begin a journey into bold, powerful luxury. With a higher-performing powertrain and strikingly redesigned looks, our Grand Touring Sedan’s advanced features, premium materials and groundbreaking technology are an experience to ignite the senses.
2017 Lexus GS sports a dynamic and aggressive exterior. The muscular sculpted lines and low centre of gravity feature a redesigned front fascia – boasting a bolder Spindle Grille with a satin chrome finish and headlamp design with LED Low Beam, and LED L‐Shape Arrowhead Daytime Running Lights. The rear design is equally striking, thanks to the L‐Shape LED Tail Lamps.
GS's interior wraps you in a realm that is at once generous in dimension and welcoming in execution. Warm ambient lighting greets you on entry, three types of wood trim and soft touch materials set a relaxing tone, and you're surrounded with premium details, including handcrafted contrast stitching and a classic analog clock – with GPS time zone functionality on GS 350 – carved from a single bar of aluminum.
Divided into distinct display and operation zones, the dashboard on this Lexus sedan positions Gauges directly within your field of view and controls intuitively within reach. The Heated, Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel features integrated Audio Controls and Paddle Shifters for ease of operation. Remote Touch makes it easy to adjust entertainment settings and find your way with Navigation on the 12.3” LCD Display.
GS's muscular 3.5-litre V6 produces 311 HP on the GS 350, combining direct fuel injection and additional port fuel injectors for impressive power and crisp responsiveness. 2017 GS 450h, equipped with second generation Lexus Hybrid Drive, lets you select electric-only driving for maximum efficiency or combine the gas engine and electric motor to deliver 338 Net horsepower, accelerating from 0-100km/h in as little as 5.6 seconds.
Steering wheel mounted paddle shifters give you fingertip control over the highly advanced 6-speed sequential shift automatic transmission that boasts a number of features first introduced on the IS F, including faster shifts, earlier torque converter lockup, and downshift throttle blips for heightened driving pleasure.
Tailor performance to your mood or the moment, with up to 4 drive modes – Eco, Normal, Sport and Snow plus, on F SPORT only, Sport S and S+. Choose Eco Mode and Instrument Illumination turns blue, while the electronic throttle control and air conditioning function are optimized for fuel efficiency. On the open road, when the spirit moves you, Sport Modes let you explore and exploit the full capability of a truly advance drivetrain.
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 TRAC 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.
Lexus GS provides great precision and engaging driver dynamics. Advanced engineering in the chassis, rigid body architecture, double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension combine to deliver crisp, confident, tactile handling that inspires participation and rewards your input.
Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management System (VDIM) seamlessly integrates an array of handling and traction control systems for your Lexus sedan. The result is an automobile capable of anticipating situations, such as a loss of traction, and taking proactive measures to maximize stability. While invisible to you, VDIM advances the art of safety and elevates the driving experience.
Standard on the Lexus GS 450h and available on the GS 350 F SPORT Package, the latest generation Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) works to absorb vibrations on rough roads, maintain ideal composure during acceleration and hard braking, and reduce body roll during cornering. Steering, in turn, becomes more direct and the ride more comfortable as you flow from one manoeuvre to the next.
Arrive at your destination as refreshed as when you started. Engineered from a deep understanding of the human body, driver and front passenger seats provide firm support for your pelvis and spine. Heated and ventilated, with 10 power adjustments (18-way available with the GS 350 AWD Executive package), seat positions can be programmed with the Smart Key13 allowing the desired seating position to be recalled as soon as the driver's door is opened.
New for 2017, all GS models now arrive with Lexus Safety System+ as standard equipment. Raising the bar on your peace of mind, LSS+ combines four of our most advanced safety features, including: Pre-collision System, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beam, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
From speed to gear selection to turn-by-turn navigation, Head-Up Display (HUD) projects real-time driving information on the lower driver-side windshield. Letting you keep your eyes on the road, HUD helps avoid distracted driving, giving you a safer, more confident drive. Head-Up Display comes built into every Lexus GS 450h, and is available on GS 350 AWD, Executive and F SPORT Series 2 packages.
Lexus GS Option Packages offer a wealth of entertainment and connectivity upgrades. If you're seeking the ultimate in audio refinement, select a premium 17-speaker Mark Levinson® 20 Surround Sound Audio System, standard on the Lexus GS 450h and available on the Executive package and F SPORT Series 2 of the GS 350 AWD. All incorporate Lexus' GreenEdgeTM technology, producing twice the power of a conventional speaker from the same power outlay, while delivering an enhanced dynamic range.
Enjoy the benefits of intelligent climate control, including a first-in-class technology called S-Flow that focuses airflow only to the front area when there are no rear passengers. In another Lexus first, multi-layer air mix technology, available with 3-zone Climate Control, enables you to set upper and lower air mixes to different temperatures for even more precise comfort control inside of your Lexus sedan.
The latest generation of Lexus' award-winning Remote Touch (LRT) interface with one-push confirmation, delivers smooth, almost intuitive control of your navigation, audio, climate control, and smart phone or connected devices. With controls ideally positioned within your 'control zone', you can make adjustments with maximum ease and minimal distraction.
