2013 Lexus GS Official Photos Leaked Ahead Of Pebble Beach Debut

A series of leaked photos and a UK market press release are the first look we have at the 2013 Lexus GS luxury sedan. Also confirmed are F-Spot, and hybrid versions (with a GS450h mentioned) as well as a GS250 packing a 2.5L V6 – for Europe only we presume.

With styling borrowing heavily from previous Lexus concepts (and a rear styling treatment strongly reminiscent of the Lexus IS), the 2013 Lexus GS is just the right side of conservative for the Lexus brand. North American will likely see the GS350 and the GS450h, but with the introduction of the 4-cylinder BMW 528i, we may end up with the GS250 as well.

Lexus claims that trunk capacity is up by 25 percent, while front and rear tracks have been widened by almost two inches. New safety features include a Night Vision System, Lane Departure Warning System, radar-guided cruise control and a new system called Lane Keep Assist, that will actively steer the car back into the proper lane should it drift outwards. The 2013 GS will also feature a new 12.3 inch LCD screen that can be configured for a split-screen configuration (allowing for both navigation and entertainment interfaces on the same screen) as well as an optional 17-speaker, 835 watt Mark Levinson audio system.

Unfortunately, firm details regarding powertrains (such as horsepower and torque figures), fuel economy, curb weights or dimensions haven’t been revealed. AutoGuide will be on hand at the official unveiling at Pebble Beach on August 18th, where Lexus will hopefully reveal more.

    Looks amazing!

  • Dyslexics_Untied

    OH GOD NOOOOO! What have Lexus done?! It looks like a Hyundai Sonata from the rear, an Infiniti G37 from the side and a big bag of ugly from the front. The current model GS is so very nice, and now it is ruined. Shame on whoever green-lighted this design!

  • Ray

    I love everything about the 2013 Lexus GS but the rear end. Looks like a rear end off of a Kia or Hyundai. I just wonder sometimes who’s gives the green light to some of the design’s Toyota/Lexus puts out.

  • Cris

    “Looks like a rear end off of a Kia or Hyundai.”

    Is that a bad thing? The new KIA and Hyundai designs are very pleasing to the eyes.

    I think this car looks great. Much more muscular and aggressive, yet hints of smoothness and sophistication.

    Thumbs up.

  • Riley Freeman

    …or the rear end looks like a natural evolution of the existing Lexus IS and LFA, as mentioned by AutoGuide. I’m so sick of hearing about these “looks like a Hyundai/Kia” crap. Get over it. Pure coincidence and I’m seeing more IS design cues, than Hyundai.

  • Gary

    Kia and Hyudai ripped it of the IS350 – what did you expect? This is an evolution of the Lexus line. It’s like saying the tailpipe looks like new BMW 7 when in fact BMW was “inspired” by the LS.

  • James Bond

    Can I have this one in my next movie… time to get serious!!!!! What a nice car!!!

  • Impulsive

    Beautiful ?!??? This front end looks HORRID !!!!!!!!!

    Typical Chinese-inspired design … is that “scrunched up” nose necessary? Really? Couldn’t think of anything else to do to make things interesting (seeing as the rest of the front is as boring as a knitting class.

    Soft, rounded features with sharp creases placed haphazardly makes for a design FAILURE … thanks for adding more pollution to the roads.
