The 2020 Lexus GS-F isn't great -- but it could be, if you buy it in a few years. Today I'm reviewing the GS-F, and I'm going to show you why it's not so great, and why you'll want to wait to buy one. I'm also showing you all the quirks and features of the GS-F, and I'm going to drive the GS-F to show you what the Lexus GS-F is like on the road.

90K for this?? That’s horrible.... this car should be 65-70K max.... you can buy a ScatPack Challenger for 40K and it’ll beat the Lexus every time. Price for price you’re better off in a Hellcat if you want bang for your buck.

7:39 it's all in the exhaust, that goes for any V8. While there are certainly differences in sound regarding valves, under-/overquare engines, engine mapping, can get a fucking hell of a sound out of any big naturally aspirated V8, doesn't matter which brand. Just found these, easily the best sounding exhausts for Lexus F cars imo: Exhibit I: And those are deep bass true dual no crossover exhausts with mufflers, not that raspy x-pipe straight pipe bullshit.

depends how you look at it, it wouldnt bother me that its slower than the rivals because its not exactly slow is it, lexus build engines to last so they dont over tune them and look how beautifully its built, lexus still build a car that lasts and to me that says more to me than zero to 60 times

Doug, this is not a good used car. Yes, it's a reliable Lexus, however, the whole point of owning a Lexus is to keep it, not lease it. A high-mileage used car is a high-mileage used car, meaning there will still be some maintenance. Therefore, you can't buy it used with less than say, 30k miles on it. That means you have to spend alotta money on brakes, toe-rods, and other assorted suspension parts to maintain this freeway hotrod, which will likely have been abused by the previous owners. 😕 Also, a good luxury used car is about $35k, meaning the high-mileage vehicles you showcased are overpriced. Just saying. 😁

You are so negative about the Lexus. Simply, don't do the reviews if you don't like those cars. New IS 350 F-sport is bad as well. Hell, no. It is just for petrolheads loving great technology. Not some BMWs and Audi's breaking all the time.

Majority of the comments seem opposite to your review Doug, that is a beautiful car hands down, tons of power and that exhaust note is awesome 😎 I would own this now as opposed to the equivalent bmw or Mercedes as i have owned 3 bmw’s as they spent as much time at the mechanics as they did at home ! Frustrating and expensive, Japanese = reliability , that is a cool car 👍

It seems like this car is going to suffer from the same performance 'issues' as my GS350. Yeah, 306HP is great, but at over 6,000 RPM?! The lower end and mid range just stink. What good is power if it's not wide enough in the RPM range?

I have a 16 GS-F that I bought new. I love it and get lots of compliments from strangers. It’s quick enough for me and the interior is beautiful. I bought it mainly because of Toyota’s reliability. I also have a 2002 Sequoia with 116k miles on it and it’s running strong. I traded my 2006 BMW 530i in for my GS-F. Started having issues with that thing.

Errrm, correction at 0:40 onwards ... LEXUS VEHICLES ARE NEVER MADE TO COMPETE AGAINST THE GERMAN COUNTERPARTS. The cars may be of similar specs and physical sizes but competition does not what drives Lexus’s design philosophy. QUALITY, RELIABILITY, GOOD OWNERSHIP EXPERIENCE (that’s LEXUS). I have just replaced my 2007 GS450h with a new GS450h. The previous car covered 229,000 miles on the original engine and transmission. THATS SOLID

Gosh people are so emotional in the comments regarding this video. Doug did say this car is great used for around 40k to 50k, he just didn't think its worth for 90k... And it terms of features this Lexus is decades behind the BMW and Merc which is also undeniably true. The only good thing about a Lexus is that it's reliable and lasts longer but that benefit mainly applies if you plan to keep the car a long long time or are buying it used, which Doug said it's a good idea to. People don't understand but true BMW and Merc owners don't buy their cars used second hand trash 🙄 they buy it new from the dealer with warranty and it will last perfectly for about 100k miles atleast which is more than enough for the guy who bought it new. This means that a 50k Brand-new Merc is 1000 times better for the new/first owner than this Lexus. The only people butthurt about BMW and Merc are the guys who can't afford it new and choose to buy it second hand cheap and in bad condition and then complain about how unreliable it is lol

I don’t know what it is about this car, I don’t like looks on the side, the rear lights look cheap, and the front grill is over the top. It’s too bad, this COULD be an amazing car if done correctly.

Funny how the 2020 GS-F you tested doesn't have power trunk but my 2013 GS250 has it. So it's probably an option that car doesn't have and also, why would you really want it? Even though it's faster than other automakers power trunk lids it's still painfully slow! GS-F isn't that impressive in power numbers when compared to german counterparts. But it's ace is in it's reliability. Remember how the E60 M5 is probably one of the worlds worst cars ever made? Wouldn't surprise me if a 2020 BMW M5 is similar to that either. So far BMW has failed to produce a single trouble free V8. I believe people who buy Lexus are similar to me. Having owned german cars (BMW for me) with nothing but trouble seeking luxury and reliability. Less performance for sure, but more luxury and a heck of a lot more reliability. Also I am utterly impressed by the mileage of the GS250. Yes yes, the GS-F will use more gas, yes mileage isn't everything. But take in to consideration this equation: 210hp 2.5L V6, 1900kg saloon, 6 speed slushbox automatic. It's an equation for disasterous mileage. It gets 7.3L/100km (32mpg) on highway long journeys. 8.6L/100km (27mpg) on my commute to work with mixed highway and city. For a underpowered saloon with an N/A V6 that is really good. Read these numbers online before I bought it and was like "Those are bullshit numbers". They are indeed true, for some reason that is unknown to me.

Doug is low IQ, majors on minors, must like crappy German cars that lose value and brake down all the time. 0-60 in 4.5 seconds is not fast? All the rivals are turbocharged and lose value faster than how fast they go 0-60. All cars are better values used, except German cars that fall apart used.

Who needs more than 467 hp? In real world conditions, most of the time, there is no way you can get all that power from the tires to the ground. And you will be buying new tires often, I am sure the tires are expensive. The horsepower wars are stupid. If 467 hp is not enough, then you are compensating for lacking manhood.
