Newest 2019 Lexus GS Release Date Details
After spotting the newest 2019 Lexus GS at the Nurburgring track, there have been a lot of noise about the car and the potential release date. With the current generation, the GS models, the last of them, we are probably gearing towards a new model. These were the rumors about the car and it just so happens that all of the rumors were true. The subsiding sales of the Lexus GS forced them to do something. And even though most of the people through that they were going to pull out and substitute the mid sizer with the ES models only in the Lexus lineup, they decided for a completely different option.
Now when details about the car are mostly out there, we are able to learn additional things and news about them. One of them is that the car is going to be a hybrid. But based on the current life cycle of the outgoing car and the amount of changes that the 2019 Lexus GS version has received, we are looking at a released date in early 2019 or late 2018. Whatever the case is, the vehicle is going to be a 2019 model.
2019 Lexus GS Price Update
The price for the latest 2019 Lexus GS vehicles is still a secret. At this point it is too early to tell and there have been no official statements. With the vehicle still not ready to make its debut, we expect the company to change the price. As we are looking at a new generation model they are planning to make a slew of changes for the car.
It will enable the price for sure although there have been no announcements to say by how much. The outgoing model has the price of $46,310 for the starting vehicles. The most expensive trim going all the way up to $68,680, we are expecting and increase between $1,000 and $3,000 depending on the trim level and how you look at it. This is not a bad offer especially when we are getting a new generation vehicles. We are also expecting that the fifth generation of the 2019 Lexus GS vehicles improves the offer that the previous car had.
Newest Rumors About the 2019 Lexus GS
The rumors about the 2019 Lexus GS started emerging some time ago. In fact some of them included the GS brand being discontinued all together. Before the spy photos showed up, there was an idea that the fourth generation would also be the last. When the sales started plummeting down, Lexus wanted to discontinue the brand and substitute the mid-size model in their lineup with the ES vehicles. This is actually a good idea as these models were doing much better in terms of sales.
But they finally decided against it. The rumors remained only rumors and the vehicle was finally renewed for another go. It is an attempt to raise sales and at the same time keep a brand which ones held a pretty good position in the Lexus overall lineup. All in all, it does not hurt having the 2019 Lexus GS model. It might prove to be a great option for them as well.
What Exterior Changes can we Expect for the 2019 Lexus GS?
Immediately we noticed that the 2019 Lexus GS is going to employ some drastic changes. Based on the spy photos, even with all the camo, it is pretty clear that the car is going to change a lot. First of all, the classic spindle grille is gone and there is a whole different nose for the car. There is going to be a dual grille layout with a smaller sporty kind of a grille below. The headlights are changed as well and are recessed a bit. They also have a wraparound look around the fenders, with integrated side markers as well. The front end is also going to feature a new sleek and smooth hood. The new look is kind of a unique and will be a great new part for the design of the car.
The side view does not show anything specific. There is some masculinity added over the wheels wells. There is a new kind of a body line which is seen and it helps the car have more character than before. With the changes that are made the car is also a bit sportier compared to last time? The rear end is also going to change a bit and it adopts a horizontal there. It will in this case update the model and help it fuse with the entirety of the car. With it we are expecting to get a nice set of wheels and an overall better look for the 2019 Lexus GS.
Color Options for the 2019 Lexus GS
The newest 2019 Lexus GS is getting ready for its release. Based on the pictures they are going to invest a lot of thought in the exterior look of the car. The design is one part which is going to receive most of the updates for the car. But are there going to be some new color additions. The answer is positive, but unfortunately it is going to be somewhat of a secret which ones they decide to utilize. There are hopes that this new car gets to be one of the more advanced models in terms of its looks so we are expecting a great showcasing of colors to update the car and help it go even beyond the potential it has had so far.
Are the Dimensions Changing?
Based on how things look now, the 2019 Lexus GS is not changing its size. The pictures do show a car padded with a lot of camouflage. But there is no indication to think that the car is going to be any different when it comes to the size. The vehicle is going to feature the same characteristics which also means the same interior spacing. To tell the truth, these were not so bad and the vehicle was pretty balanced when it came to the dimensions. Thus the length of the car is probably going to be 192.1 inches. The previous car also had a wheelbase of 112.2 inches. Finally the height and the width are 57.3 inches and 72.4 in respectively. With these stats the interior volume is 98 cu ft and the trunk capacity amounts to 18 cu ft.
Changes for the Interior of the 2019 Lexus GS
Unfortunately, there are no pictures not a lot of information for the interior fo the 2019 Lexus GS. It remains a secret for now but it will be soon uncovered how the will look. As they changed the outer part of the vehicle, we are expecting equal change for the inside of it. This is a Lexus car, so we can unmistakably expect the luxury. With the majority of the car changing, perhaps the inside is going to be a refreshing new part as well.
Doing away with some of the staple elements which the Lexus cars are famous for is a risky choice. But sometimes you have to make bold moves in order to gain attention. Our idea is that this model will add an entirely new formula which will get the car the attention it needs. Expect to see updated technology and also newest comfort additions. Wood and leather are of the staples of luxury, so it does not hurt to have them here.
Engine Specs and Improvements for the 2019 Lexus GS
It is hard to tell whether the newest 2019 Lexus GS will use or update the current line of engines. The outgoing model has two engine options, the 2.0-liter, and turbocharged four-banger that is able to provide 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The second one is the 3.5-liter V-6 which is a stronger option giving us 311 horsepower and 280 pound-feet. But the model that was doing tests is obviously a hybrid powered mode. So we are expecting that a combination of a 3.5-liter with a battery and an electric motor gets to be thrown into the mix. It will give the car an output of 338 horsepower in total.
2019 Lexus GS Acceleration and Top Speed
With the newest 2019 Lexus GS and the changes that we are expecting to face for the powertrain, the specs will also be different. The model is yet to share these information and it is not likely that we get to have them soon. For now a top speed of 155 mph is estimated and an acceleration to 0-60 mph of around 6 seconds is certain.
Fuel Economy Improvements
The newest 2019 Lexus GS will most likely work to improve the fuel economy. The current rating of 22 mpg city and 32 mpg on the highway is decent but it is still something that needs improvement. We will see if this is the version that gets to do so.
