Lexus GS 300
Long Island City Lexus GS 300 | Queens Used Luxury Car Dealer
The Lexus GS 300 was a sophisticated and handsome car from the day it was introduced, and it just got better generation by generation. The inaugural GS 300 debuted in 1993 and was available through 1997. When it was introduced, its polished design made it stand out in both the domestic and foreign luxury sedan class. Cabin appointments were lavish, and the interior was spacious enough to comfortable accommodate anyone who wished to come along for the ride. All GS 300s of this era utilized a 220-hp 3.0-liter inline-6 engine; model years1996 and ’97 offered a five-speed automatic transmission; earlier models had a four-speed automatic.
Car buyers looking for a quality pre-owned Lexus GS 300 will most often encounter vehicles from the second generation, manufactured from 1998-2005. This was a true luxury sedan to its core. Cloth upholstery was the official standard on GS 300, but the optional leather package was popular and often selected. If you liked your music as refined as your car, a superior Nakamichi sound system was available from 1998-2000; the Mark Levinson system which took over in 2001 was equally impressive. 2001 also saw the introduction of a DVD-based navigation system. The 300 came with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine throughout its tenure; and it generated either 225 or 220 horsepower, depending on which model you were driving. Although this GS 300 was powered the same engine as the first generation, new variable valve timing gave a boost to the available torque.
2006 was the official swan song for the GS 300. The bodywork imitated the same basic profile as the previous models, but was a bit more contemporary in feel. A newly introduced, all-aluminum 3.0-liter / 245 horsepower V6 was partnered with a six-speed automatic transmission; standard rear-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive were offered as choices. With either setup, the GS 300 had satisfying get-up-and-go, and power delivery was unquestionably smooth. The 300 is perhaps best utilized as a luxurious highway cruiser, conducting itself with dignity over bumps and ruts, and protecting its passengers from disturbing outside noise.
