Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

Lexus redesigned its midlevel GS sedan last year, adopting the corporate grille that's made its way across the CT 200h hatchback and LX SUV. The GS 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, and the hybrid GS 450h gets a V-6 hybrid system. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive available on the GS 350. Competitors include the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Cadillac CTS.
New for 2014 LED headlights are now available as are LED fog lights. A full-color readout is included with the available head-up display, and rear-wheel-drive GS 350 models get a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive GS 350 continues with a six-speed automatic. Other new features include rear cross-traffic alert and power-folding side mirrors for the blind spot warning system, and an available power trunk-lid opener. The GS 450h's available Pre-Collision System now incorporates all-speed dynamic cruise control.
The GS now offers Siri Eyes Free mode for the iPhone 4S and 5, which enables various voice commands through Siri including placing a call, playing music from iTunes, listening to and composing text messages and emails, getting directions, performing a search, listening to notifications and calendar info, and adding reminders and appointments.
