For 2013, you could expect a completely redesigned version of GS 350. It is a GS mid-size luxury sport sedan. The company offers a base model GS 350, a hybrid, and a high-performance F-Sport package.

Power and Performance

All variants of GS will get an updated version of the venerable 3.5-liter V6 engine, expected to increase output from that of the current V6- 303 hp and 274 lb.-ft. of torque.

Power will be sent to rear wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission system. All-wheel drive is also likely to be available as an option.

Though hybrid stands in for larger-displacement V8 model, the firm is confident enough to challenge the supremacy of BMW M5 in this category. The GS F version delivers 416 horsepower from its 5.0-L V8 engine and is likely for 2014 as well.

It also comes with larger 19-inch wheels and tires where the base model will be equipped with 18-inch wheels, sportier suspension, and larger brakes.

The most noticeable upgrade in 2013 version is underneath its sheet metal. The lighter aluminum components reduce its weight; the additional welding and other structural pieces would fortify the body.

Its wider tracks at front and rear may also help the new GS to be the sportiest midsize.

The company has guaranteed fun while driving 2013 Lexus GS 350. The driver seats are located slightly lower than before and offer a spot-on steering feel.

All models will be standard with its new system Lexus Drive Mode Select, which is controlled by a large knob located behind the shifter and offers 4 settings to tune the car as per driver’s liking.

It will come with some standard features like:

• Automatic transmission

• Satellite radio
