Read more about the 2016 Lexus GS F Powers Into Detroit at AutoGuide.com.The letter F stands for a lot of things, but at Lexus it should stand for fast. It’s the designation used on the brands sportiest models and this year that lineup expands to include the GS F.
At the forefront of the GS’s transformation is a change under the hood. Gone is the 3.5-liter V6, replaced by a 5.0-liter V8 making 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque. It will be paired exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.
Although this isn’t the first time a V8 has been offered in a GS model, it’s the first time one is being offered in this latest generation and it’s by far the most powerful engine ever offered in the GS range.
