Now, on the eve of this yearвs event, Lexus has unveiled an updated version of its mid-size luxury sedan. The updated GS arrives in showrooms later this year, as a 2016 model. We already know that the 2016 GS line has been expanded with a, and now we can reveal that thereвll also be a new point of entry to the range in the form of the GS 200t. ALSO SEE: This model packs the same turbocharged 2. 0-liter four-cylinder engine already found in the NX and IS lines, and destined to appear in the RC line as well. In the GS, the engine delivers 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Paired with an eight-speed automatic and spinning the rear wheels only, Lexus estimates that the engine will help the GS 200t return as much as 33 mpg on the highway.

The 2016 model year also sees the GS 350 adopt a new 3. 5-liter V-6 engine. The new unit delivers 311 hp and 280 lb-ft, up from 306 hp and 277 lb-ft previously. And buyers of the GS 350 can opt for an available all-wheel-drive system. The GS 450h is still part of the lineup, with its 3. 5-liter V-6 and electric motor combo delivering 338 hp and 254 lb-ft. And sitting at the top of the range is the GS F, whose 5. 0-liter V-8 is good for 467 hp and 389 lb-ft. Youвll be able to spot the 2016 GS by its revised front which adopts a bolder Lexus spindle grille, extra LED elements in the headlights, a new graphic in the tail lights and a new shape for the exhaust tips.

The changes inside are harder to spot. There are some new color and trim options, and the instrument cluster features a larger 4. 2-in display screen. Sitting in the center of the dash is a large 12. 3-in display, which works together with Lexusв Remote Touch interface. Navigation is now standard on all variants except the GS 200t.

Standard safety features include 10 airbags, front seats designed to reduce whiplash injuries, and the new Lexus Safety System+ suite of electronic safety features and driver aids. The latter combines Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Intelligent High Beam (IHB) and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The 2016 Lexus GS 350 carries on mostly unchanged under the skin, though the 3. 5-liter V-6 engine does gain 5 hp and 3 lb-ft of torque for new total of 311 hp and 280 lb-ft. It still mates with an eight-speed automatic in rear-wheel-drive versions, and a six-speed automatic when equipped with optional all-wheel drive. The GS 450h hybrid still provides 338 total system hp from its Atkinson-cycle 3. 5-liter V-6 paired with an electric motor. The optional F Sport package, which adds more aggressive exterior trim and a few chassis upgrades, is still available for the GS 350 and GS 450h, and can now be applied to the GS 200t as well.
