    The 2020 Lexus GS is available in seven different models with prices ranging from $75,202 before on-road costs for the base GS300 Luxury to $155,582 for the GS F.

    The current generation of Lexus’s BMW 5 Series rival was first introduced in 2012 and facelifted in 2016.

    Though it’s sized similarly to the newer Lexus ES, that model is front-wheel drive and comes only with a four-cylinder hybrid powertrain while the GS is rear-wheel drive and offers a sprawling range of engines and trim levels.
