Lexus USA has discontinued the GS 300 sedan for the 2020 model year due to poor sales. Website CarsDirect discovered the change:
So why is Lexus doing away with the cheapest GS? Unsurprisingly, it’s because people weren’t buying it.
According to Lexus spokesperson Alissa Moceri, “the GS 300 represented a small percentage of GS sales in 2018,” adding “we are constantly evaluating model mixes throughout our lineup.”
The GS 300 was powered by the Lexus 2.0L turbo engine, and was first introduced in 2016. The GS 350 will remain in the 2020 lineup with a base price of $52,420 USD. The GS F high-performance sedan will also continue to be offered, retailing for $86,035 USD.
