2006 Lexus GS 300 Overview

The Lexus GS 300 was overhauled in 2006 to take on the company's ambitious goal of quadrupling sales of GS series vehicles and boost market share from five o 14 percent. That means loads of new features designed to make the GS 300 more appealing the BMW's 5-series or Mercedes-Benz's E-Series.

Available as a standard sedan or with all wheel drive as an option, the GS 300 carries just a few hints of the previous GS 300 shape and styling. Also new for 2006 is a 24-valve double-overhead-cam engine, which bumps peak power from 225 to 245 horsepower. The V6 also gets a "slick" new six-speed automatic.

"This is luxury first and foremost," wrote one owner, meaning "don't think you'll outrun a Mustang or even a Tiburon." Some owners complained of difficulty seeing the navigation system displays in sunlight, and others wanted more room in the backseat.
