You would've been also been giving up the power trunk and some of the safety/convenience tech as well! GS F didn't get all-speed radar cruise control & the updated Steering Assist/Lane Keep Assist until model year 2018. The 2016 & 2017 had the older high-speed radar cruise control which would disengage below 20 or so and the Lane Keeping system is also less advanced/capable (I think it was more of a lane departure warning system rather than an active steering system). I think these systems were the same as found in the IS/RC which means it also doesn't have the capability to auto emergency brake to a stop and would only warn you & apply partial braking, but still let you ram into the car/pedestrian ahead.

Really weird the way Lexus does things! I've gone through the same thought process many times myself.

About 5 weeks in and 700 miles on the clock. Happy to report an increase of about 2mpg over the 15 GS.

I also noticed the other day that the rear diffuser on the 19 seems to be a gloss black, whereas it was sort of a metallic graphite gloss finish on the 15. I think I liked it a little better on the 15.
