Under the hood, the 2013 Lexus GS 350 keeps the same 3.5-liter V6 engine but with a slight power increase to 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. The same 6-speed automatic transmission also remains. Lexus claims the new GS 350 will pull off a 0-60 mph time of around 5.7 seconds and have an electronically limited top speed of 142 mph. Tough luck for fans of the V8 engine, though, as Lexus is killing that option. The GS 350 will remain available in both rear-wheel- and four-wheel-drive variants.
The 2013 GS will offer three driving modes, including an ECO mode for fuel savings, and a Sport S mode that shifts at higher revs, tightens steering and suspension, and eases up on traction control.
The interior of the upcoming 2013 GS 350 reflects a shift in Lexus thinking from passenger-oriented design to a driver-centric focus with a lowered steering wheel and more supportive seat design for enhanced comfort. The GS will be chock-full of techno-goodies, including standard Bluetooth and audio streaming capabilities, in addition to a text-to-speech function that reads text messages to drivers and allows them to respond with pre-programmed responses. An upgraded, 835-watt, 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system will be available, along with a huge split-view, 12.3-inch high-definition display. Rear cargo space is respectable for the segment at 18.7 cubic feet. Text Source: www.newcartestdrive.com
