2014 Lexus GS Overview

Is the 2014 Lexus GS a Good Used Car?

A used 2014 Lexus GS is a luxury midsize car that features soft leather throughout the interior and numerous standard tech features. The engine is potent and gets good fuel economy. Add in perfect safety and reliability scores, and this is a very good used car.

A strong 306-horsepower V6 engine powers the 2014 Lexus GS 350. An eight-speed automatic transmission with well-timed shifts is standard. All-wheel-drive models have a six-speed automatic transmission. A smooth ride, sharp handling, and strong brakes make the GS 350 a pleasure to drive. The GS 350 gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, which are decent estimates for a V6-powered car. The all-wheel-drive GS’ city mileage is the same but drops to 26 mpg on the highway.

The 2014 Lexus GS seats five. Leather seats and 10-way power-adjustable front seats are standard. The comfortable front seats have enough leg- and headroom, even for tall people. The supportive rear seats offer plenty of legroom. The rear outward seats have full LATCH anchors and tethers, and there's a tether anchor in the middle rear seat.

The 2014 Lexus GS 350 has a rearview camera, a USB port, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, a 12-speaker surround-sound audio system, and an infotainment system with an 8-inch display. Lexus’ Remote Touch, a mouselike controller for accessing audio and navigation settings, can be a frustrating tool and is difficult to operate while driving. Available features include a navigation system with a 12.3-inch display and a Mark Levinson 17-speaker premium surround-sound audio system.

Should I Consider Another Used GS?

The 2014 Lexus GS is part of the luxury midsize sedan’s fourth generation, which launched in 2013 and continues through the 2017 model year. You can save money buying the 2013 model, which has the same space and performance specs as the 2014 model, with one notable exception. The 2014 model has an eight-speed automatic transmission that shifts more smoothly than the 2013's six-speed. The exterior of the GS was updated for the 2016 model year.

Which Used Lexus GS Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Lexus GS comes in one well-equipped trim. All-wheel drive is available, as are extras like heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a premium sound system. Some models feature numerous sports enhancements, including variable sports suspension, a rear spoiler, and more-powerful brakes. The enhancements are nice, but the base GS delivers plenty of luxury.

For added peace of mind, consider a certified pre-owned GS. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Lexus extends its original new-car warranty to cover six years or unlimited mileage. Lexus puts its CPO vehicles through a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Lexus warranty page carefully.

2014 Lexus GS and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Lexus GS or 2014 Audi A6?

The base 2014 Audi A6 has less horsepower than the GS and can’t match the GS’ perfect reliability score, but it’s still the better choice. The A6 offers a comfortable ride and athletic handling. Its cabin is luxurious and features a straightforward infotainment system, while the GS' infotainment system uses a clunky controller. Additionally, the A6 earns better fuel economy thanks to its base four-cylinder turbo engine.

Which Is Better: 2014 Lexus GS or 2014 Cadillac CTS?

Empty nesters might prefer the 2014 Cadillac CTS over the 2014 Lexus GS. The CTS has much more front leg- and headroom, though it has less rear shoulder room than the GS offers. Otherwise, the GS and CTS are equal in ride, handling, and interior quality. The base CTS has slightly less horsepower but slightly better fuel economy.

Which Is Better: 2014 Lexus GS or 2014 Lexus ES?

Prefer front-wheel drive over rear-wheel drive? Then the 2014 Lexus ES is the better choice. The ES and GS have roughly the same interior dimensions, except the ES has much more rear legroom and a bigger trunk. You’ll sacrifice some horsepower, but the ES is about 20 percent less expensive on average. The GS comes with standard leather, but otherwise, features are largely the same.
