Toyota is the largest car company in Japan and among the biggest in the world. It has always been known for quality cars, although it cannot be denied that some efforts are more successful than others. Here is one of the top Toyota cars.
Lexus GS is one of the more interesting Lexus cars. It is one of the first to deploy hybrid technology as a performance boost. And it often strikes a good balance between performance and comfort while being cheaper than its European competition. Four generations of the GS have been produced since 1933, each with six-cylinder engines and rear-wheel drive. Design as a performance sedan that competes in the mid-luxury segment, the GS sits between the Compact Executive IS and the large/flagship LS and shared its chassis with one of Toyota’s longest-running favorites, the Toyota Crown Premium sedans, until 2011. The Lexus GS 350 is one of the third generations of the GS. The Lexus GS 350 is a luxury sports sedan produced by Japanese automaker Toyota since 2006. It was introduced at the 2005 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, Michigan. It is based on the Toyota Camry platform and shares many components with the Toyota Avalon.
The GS 350 uses the same engine as the Toyota Camry, a 2.8-liter V6 producing 260 horsepower and 258 lb·ft of torque mated to either a six-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. The GS 350 cabin is comfortable, roomy, and quiet, all the wheel drive and performance options cover most driver needs, and it has good outward visibility. The GS 350 replaced the GS 300 in the United States and other export markets in 2007. In 2008, the GS 350 came with Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) which was previously only standard on V8 and hybrid models. In addition, the Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) is now also an option on the V6 model. The GS 350 comes in two main versions: Base and F Sport, both sing a 3.5 liter V6.
