The third generation Lexus GS was first introduced as a 2006 model at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The initial model lineup included the GS 300, with a 3.0 L V6 3GR-FSE engine, and the GS 430, with the same 4.3 L V8 used in the previous model.

The 2006 Lexus GS was the first to display the marque's L-finesse design philosophy. This design style is characterized by swooping lines, a fastback profile, and more muscular styling.

The GS was also were the first model to feature the latest generation of Lexus' SmartAccess keyless system–-adding a push-button start for the first time. Other unique features include a driver-side hidden panel for infrequently used controls, a standard touchscreen display in the center console, LED lighting in the cabin, and Bluetooth technology. A Mark Levinson premium sound system is optional. Unique to the Lexus GS series, each vehicle features an electrochromic instrument cluster which adjusts for the amount of reflected sunlight.

For the 2008 model year Lexus replaced the GS 430 with the GS 460 model. Equipped with a new 4.6 L V8 engine generating 342 hp, the GS 460 also features an 8-speed automatic transmission.
