Although the Lexus GS 350 was all new for the 2013 model year, the 2014 GS 350 is getting some updates like a new eight-speed automatic transmission and Apple’s new Siri Eyes Free mode.
The 2014 GS 350 is powered by a 306-hp 3.5L V6 that is mated to a new standard eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Buyers can choose between either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. The all-wheel-drive system can vary the front-to-rear torque balance from its default ratio of 30:70 to as much as 50:50, depending on driving conditions.
Lexus has integrated Siri Eyes Free Mode, with technology licensed from Apple, in the 2014 GS 350. Compatible with the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 models forward, Siri lets you call contacts, select and play music from iTunes®, get turn-by-turn navigation through Siri and Apple maps, and much more.
