Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is on a roll. Since Chrysler and Fiat secured their merger, they've put together a good deal of European-bred technology that will make its way to the United States. There are whole cars, like the ProMaster van series (derived from Fiat's vans) and the Alfa Romeo 4C. There are also some new powerplants headed our way, one of which is already here - the Italian-designed EcoDiesel V-6.
To be frank, this will be a quick review. That's because this car, the 2014 Lexus GS 350 AWD, is capable of being summed up in relatively short order. That doesn't mean the car is bad, and that doesn't mean there isn't a lot to talk about. What it means is that the car is very well put together. Everything about it has a purpose. In this case, that purpose is luxury. And Lexus has the luxury mid-size sedan down pat.
Diesels are making a comeback in the United States, and that's a good thing. Diesels are more efficient than gas engines, they give more torque, and they don't even smell bad anymore. The Big Three are beginning to offer diesels in a few models, but they've got a ways to go before they can go head-to-head with VW/Audi's TDI technology.
