The F badge from Lexus has been in the market for sale since 2008 and it has been designated as the only fastest and the most aggressive sedans in the lineup of Lexus. The new 2016 Lexus GS F rolls into manufacture with a bigger engine, latest differential and improved suspension and a stiffened chassis. Lexus revealed the most recent addition to its F array at the 2015 Auto Show in Detroit and announced that it will be released to the public for sale shortly.
Lexus GS F 2016 Interior, Redesign
Lexus has taken much effort to make the interior more comfortable and attractive than the outgoing model. The indoors of the new GS slaps an entire pile of go faster over its usual comfort. The seats inside the cabin are greatly bolstered buckets with many interesting sewed leather lines, and a double-tone color design. The dashboard features with loads of carbon fiber instead of the old wood trim available in the outgoing model. The charm of the cabin of the new GS F is increased by the thicker looking steering wheel and by the headrests imprinted with F logos. The newer model sedan also comes with perforated seats, so buyers can expect both cooling and heating functions.

2016 Lexus GS F Changes
The GS F sedan comes with the same exterior design as that of the present RC F. The front fascia of the new GS F gives way to a big spindle grille packed by mesh and creased by dazzling work by means of a carbon-fiber lip on its bottom. The old fog lights in the earlier model have been replaced by huge opening intended for cooling the brakes. It comes with new headlights, designed with three units in its body, together with the angular and a sharper LED running lamp positioned beneath that.
To ensure the new GS F handles and, it appears, the automaker has strengthened its chassis and revised its suspension. Combined with its variable settings and the trick differential, the newer model sedan would be capable of curving some canyon roads devoid of a problem.
Some of the notable exterior changes in the new Lexus luxury sedan include:
New alloy wheels, with 255/35 front tires and 275/35 back sport tires from Michelin Pilot.
Aggressive, new back bumper with quadrangle exhaust.
The back of the new vehicle is adorned with darker taillights, featuring an improved design, and with a carbon-fiber lip spoiler hanging over the trunk. The new GS F comes with an external dimension of 193.5 x 72.6 x 56.7 inches in length, width and height respectively, with the wheelbase of 112.2 inches. Curb Weight is 4100 lb.
Engine, Horsepower, 0-60
Under the hood, the sport sedan would be equipped with a magnificent V8, 5.0-liter engine, which is fine-tuned to produce the maximum power of 467 HP at 7,100 RPM and an utmost torque of 389 lbs per foot at 4,800-5,600 RPM. An 8-speed automatic(manual shifting mode) will be mated to this 2016 Lexus GS F engine. This combination offers the new GS F better acceleration to reach the speed from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, 0–100 mph for 10.0 seconds, 1/4-mile for 12.9 seconds, with the top speed of 171 mph.
