The Lexus GS sedan has been around for quite a while, seeing its first U.S. sales in 1993. Built to compete against the likes of BMW’s 5 Series, the GS is segmented between Lexus’ popular IS sedan and the high-rolling LS premium sedan. Now in its fourth generation, the front-engine, rear-drive sedan is better looking and sportier than ever before. But how does it compete?

I recently spent a week getting to know a Nebula Gray GS 350 F Sport around my familiar stomping ground of Central Florida. A short-ish road trip provided an even greater range of roads and conditions in which to put the GS through its paces. Make no bones about it, this is no boy-racer track car, but it’s no luxo party barge either.

Like all GS 350 sedans, my tester came powered by the ubiquitous 3.5-liter V-6, that in this case, makes 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. New for 2014 is an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The F Sport package adds extra adornments that liven up the GS’ appearance, larger wheels and tires, performance-oriented shocks, and larger brakes.

The interior was loaded down with nearly every desirable techno-functionality that makes driving more convenient. A massive, 12.3-inch infotainment screen lives deep in the center dashboard complete with Lexus’ Enform software, satellite radio, heated and cooled front seats, and leather everything.

So jump on down for the full run-down of the 2014 Lexus GS 350 F Sport including video and photos.
