  • 2016 Lexus GS officially unveiled with revised styling and other updates
  • The biggest change is a new GS 200t base model with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder
  • The updated Lexus GS goes on sale later this year

Lexus has officially unveiled an updated 2016 GS sedan during this year's Monterey Car Week festivities. The 2016 GS offers several important revisions, including new styling, new features and a new engine.

On the outside, the most obvious changes are a revised front fascia and updated rear taillights, two characteristic features of an automotive face-lift. The updated front end also includes newly standard LED headlights and a more aggressive front-bumper design.

The changes under the hood are notable, as well. The GS adds a new base model for 2016, dubbed the GS 200t and powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that makes 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Available only with rear-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission, the GS 200t is expected to achieve 33 miles per gallon on the highway, which is an impressive feature for a luxury car.

Beyond the new engine and revised styling, other changes to the 2016 GS are relatively minor. The V6-powered GS 350 gets a slight power bump from 306 hp to 311 hp, while the hybrid-powered GS 450h carries over unchanged. New features include an updated infotainment system with new full-width map capability, a slightly revised Remote Touch controller and minor changes to the car's Lexus Enform system.

Although Lexus hasn't announced pricing, we expect the GS 350 will retain a similar base price to today's $49,500 figure with shipping when it goes on sale later this year. Meanwhile, the GS 200t's base price will likely start closer to $45,000 including destination.

What it means to you: In addition to revised styling, the 2016 Lexus GS adds a new base model to enhance its appeal to luxury-sedan buyers.
