Gs350 And Gs 460?


Recommended Posts

I'm considering getting a Lexus GS but probably not until the 2007 Model Year. I was wondering if anyone might know if/when they will be putting the engine in the current/new IS350 in the GS and because of that they will also boost the V8 of the current GS430 to something like a GS 460?

Thanks in advance.

I believe both will be coming in the Fall of 06 as an 07 model.

I have been puzzled for awhile by the spec posted on jp's website

http://lexus.jp/models/gs/performance/powerunit.html

V8 model seems to have less max HP than v6s'. (Look at the diagram at the middle section of the page). Does it sound right? I can't read Japanese, which might be the cause of confusion.

I believe that is the case. Keep in mind, however, that it is comparing the 3.5 V6 to the current 4.3 V8. Wait until the new GS460. ;)

Also keep in mind that the V8 will still have more torque and is smoother. It is a different ride.
