2013 Lexus GS 350

The 2013 Lexus GS 350 is a much-needed step in a new direction for Lexus. Of new GS in an attempt to lure younger buyers is not only more sporty than its predecessor (after it is spent much time around Germany Nürburgring), but also with devices and things that the young techies are sure to love. While it is not the huge leap forward we had hoped we might be we are already sure that there much more than car be often forgotten predecessor.

Under the hood 350 offers on the 2013 GS the same 3.5-litre V-6 as the 2011 model, but with a slight power bump 306 HORSEPOWER and 277 lb-ft of torque. It is covered only to a six-speed automatic transmission in the rear drive or all-wheel drive configurations. Lexus claims a 0-60 mph time of about 5.7 seconds, which is just as fast as the current generation of GS. The electronically limited top speed Gets a small blow up to 142 mph, 140 miles per hour. Two more GS models are be revealed from the time that a dealer showrooms 2012 - beginning of 350 hits hybrid, and a F-sport. The hybrid, will be revealed the on the next Frankfurt auto show, is likely to keep the drive train of the 2011 GS 450 h, and Lexus released a teaser of photo a model of that name. The F-sport will have the same engine as the regular GS 350 but with 19-inch wheels, sticky tires, larger brakes, adjustable-rate control, and an Adaptive chassis.
That V-8 model out of the lineup will be dropped, with the hybrid, as his replacement was Lexus officials. While that much complaining among enthusiasts could result, it's not all bad. Chief Engineer Yoshihiko Kanamori says the 2013 GS 450 h hybrid is the latest generation of V-8-powered GS 460 to surpass. For comparison sake, went we tested last eight GS of 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds. Lexus is currently Mama on fuel economy ratings, other than to say it from the old model of the 19 / 26 mpg city / highway EPA rating just improved...
