TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2013 Lexus GS

2013 Lexus GS Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
In casual suburban driving the trip computer reported between 22 and 23 mpg, splitting the difference between the EPA ratings of 19 city and 26 highway. When I made the engine sing mpg dropped into the high teens. Slip into Eco and drive the GS like a Prius, and 25 is barely doable. Not bad for a 306-horsepower, two-ton, all-wheel-drive sedan. But the torquier Audi A6 3.0T and BMW 535i xDrive do a little better, especially on the highway. The Teuton's turbos help a little here, but most of the blame/credit goes to their respective transmissions. If and when Lexus fits the GS AWD with the eight-speed automatic already offered in the RWD car, it'll likely catch up. see full Lexus GS review
