Lexus LS New Model in 2013
Lexus LS New Model in 2013Lexus LS unveiled in 2013, the new incarnation of its flagship sedan in the middle of a photo exhibition in San Francisco. The pictures were supposed to decide on the nature of the attraction, but it was all PR hype. If buyers choose a LS 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Audi A8, the choice is purely rational. The new LS, unveiled the sporty 460 F Sport trim, seems more evolutionary than revolutionary.
Lexus says the car over 3,000 new parts, but not many of those outside. 2013 LS combines the "spindle grille" new taillights and the GS and ES sides with majestic model 2012 is. Most changes can be in the front of the car, but give it an aggressive look that LS did not have before.
For 2013, the LS offers the same LS 2012: short wheelbase 460, LS 460L LWB and hybrid LS600hL. No hybrid LS models are available in rear-or all-wheel drive, the LS600hL is to all four wheels only.
Sport LS F 460 is the only new model, bringing a touch of sportiness to the big Lexus. The F Sport networks "sport tuned" suspension, which is 0.4 inches lower than the original, a Torsen limited-slip differential (on models with rear-wheel drive) and six-piston Brembo brakes. Drivers get much improved seats and oars.
All models retain the 4.6-liter V8 from 2012 LS. In the LS 460, V8 of 386 hp at the hotel (360 in all four wheels) and 367 lb.-ft. of torque (347 in all four wheels). The LS600hL hybrid gets a boost from an electric motor of 221 hp and 288V nickel-metal hydride battery.
Two transmissions are available: an automatic eight reports of non-hybrid models, and a continuously variable drive the LS600hL.
status of Lexus, the focus is really on technology, not performance. In the safety department, Lexus Advanced Pre-Crash Safety LS can stop speeds up to 24 mph if it detects a follow obstacle.It also comes with mandatory electronic aids: adaptive cruise controller, control maintenance SPOT Assist lane and blind to alert traffic behind Cross to help drivers when backing up.
Lexus owners can control most functions of the car thanks to the 12.3-inch touch screen in the center console. Remote Touch system combines a controller buttons, and commands a confirmation button to operate the air conditioning of the LS, audio and navigation systems.
The LS 2013 also comes with its own application suite. Lexus Enform system is Pandora, iHeartRadio, MSN and other applications within reach of the driver LS.
The LS has everything a buyer could want modern luxury sedan, but may not be enough. When Toyota launched Lexus LS with origin in 1989, stunned the world by its quality, attention to detail and the relatively low price. In the process, poached sales of Lexus brands like old silver Mercedes.
The LS 2013 is almost identical to the German competition, not to mention the LS 2012, it seems, but no more. This will likely keep the faithful happy Lexus, but it will not inspire the emotion of the brand has to attract another person.
