Lexus will reveal the all-new 2013 GS 350 mid-size luxury sedan with F SPORT package at the 2011 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
The Lexus press conference to reveal the 2013 GS 350 with F SPORT package will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 1:30 p.m. PDT at the outdoor Lexus exhibit tent, located between the Central and South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Following the press conference, media will have an opportunity to experience track rides in the all-new GS 350 with F SPORT package.
The GS 350 with F SPORT package will be on display at the Lexus tent from Nov. 1 -- 4.
JT Grey Racing Lexus LX 570 Team driver, Joe Bacal and race car driver, Scott Pruett will be on hand signing autographs on Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. and 12:00-1:00 p.m., respectively, at the Lexus tent. Joe Bacal will also be available to sign autographs throughout the day on Nov. 2.
Building on the excitement of the fourth-generation GS 350 which was revealed at Pebble Beach in August, the GS 350 with F SPORT package was designed to engage driving enthusiasts with factory engineering and the ability to take performance to an entirely new level. Unique to the F SPORT package will be aggressive 19-inch wheels, F SPORT-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), thicker anti-roll bars, bushing changes, and new larger front brakes with high friction pads. In addition, rear-wheel drive (RWD) models will be equipped with 19-inch staggered width wheels and Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS). Inside, the all-new package also features a sporty attitude with a new 16-way power driver's sport seat, unique interior design treatment and available F SPORT exclusive Cabernet Red leather interior.
As with the GS 350, the GS 350 with F SPORT package is powered by an advanced 3.5-liter V6, with four cams, and four valves per cylinder and dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence. At 306 horsepower, it is one of the most powerful base engines in the segment, as well as the only one with both port and direct injection. It propels the car from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and at the same time, fuel economy has been improved.
Acceleration from 30 to 50 mph can take just 3.0 seconds, and improved engine sound characteristics complement the bolder, more energetic personality of the new GS. The six-speed sequential shift automatic transmission has paddle shifters and sport driving functions as standard equipment.
The transmission incorporates many features adopted from the Lexus IS F high-performance sedan — including faster shifts, and downshift throttle blips — to support four driving modes that can be operated by toggling the Lexus Drive Mode selector. In addition to the Normal mode, the driver can customize the driving experience using ECO, Sport S and Sport S+ modes.
An optional electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system is designed to enhance traction in a variety of driving conditions. The system can vary front-to-rear torque balance from 50/50 to as much as 30/70, depending on driving conditions, for exceptional control.
► 2012 Lexus GX 460
The capable GX 460 transitions into the 2012 model year with minimal
changes. The standard model receives color-keyed bodyside molding with a
chrome accent, while the Premium model now features a high-gloss wheel
finish. In addition, the Fire Agate Pearl exterior replaces Peridot Mica.
The GX 460 takes its model designation from its 4.6-liter V8 engine that
produces 301 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and
329 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,500 rpm. The 32-valve DOHC engine features
aluminum alloy cylinder heads and block with dual Variable Valve Timing
with Intelligence (VVT-i), which controls valve timing and overlap on both
the intake and Exhaust camshafts to
optimize power, fuel efficiency and emissions.
The GX 460's fuel economy is better than other V8 luxury utility vehicles
and competitive with some six-cylinder models with its EPA-estimated 17 mpg
combined, 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway ratings.
The 4.6-liter V8 is teamed to a six-speed electronically controlled
automatic transmission with sequential shift. The responsive powertrain is
quiet and helps the GX 460 tow up to 6,500 lbs.
2013 Lexus GS 350 World Premiere
Toyota Motor Corporation President Akio Toyoda and Lexus Group Vice
President and General Manager Mark Templin introduce the 2013 Lexus GS 350
mid-size luxury sedan, August 18, 2011 at Pebble Beach, Calif
► 2012 Lexus ES 350
The ES 350 entry luxury sedan continues to be a Lexus favorite with its
comfortable cabin and smooth ride. With a plethora of standard amenities,
such as 17-inch wheels, moonroof, 10-way power adjustable front seats,
leather-trimmed seats and a multi-information display, the ES continues to
impress new and loyal consumers. The ES 350 cruises into the 2012 model
year virtually unchanged except for the new Nebula Gray Pearl exterior,
which replaces Smoky Granite Mica; and the discontinuation of Peridot Mica.
The ES 350's aluminum 3.5-liter V6 produces 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and
248 lb.-ft. peak torque at 4,700 rpm using 87-octane regular fuel. The ES
has EPA fuel economy estimates of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 28 on
the highway. The chain-driven camshafts employ Dual Variable Valve Timing
with intelligence (Dual VVT-i) for optimal performance and efficiency at
all engine speeds.
The six-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with
intelligence (ECT-i) provides a sequential manual shift feature for a more
involved driving experience when desired. Shifting strategy adapts to
driver input, with rapid downshift response.

2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the all new 2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport. Quite the impressive
redesign from the previous model packed with new styling, luxury and great
build quality. The F-sport package is Lexus' answer to the BMW M-sport
package and features altered body styling, a sporty interior and
performance upgrades. While the exterior is quite unique, the interior
takes the best from BMW's center stack design by incorporating a 12.3"
multimedia interface with a unique controller in the center console.
There's lots and lots of tech demos towards the middle for those gadget
minded people, took a while to explain. I highly recommend checking it out
in person, as there's many trim levels and options to suit your needs as I
showed towards the end of the video. I, personally, am looking forward to
seeing the rest of the lexus fleet adapt to this new generation styling.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

11-8-11 2013 Lexus GS F SPORT Acceleration
This is vide of the all-new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F SPORT being driven
southbound on PCH in Dana Point, CA. Listen to the roar of the 2GR-FSE D4-S
3.5L V6. This GS F Sport was switched into Sport+ mode. Listen to the more
pronounced intake sounds (just like IS F) and watch the throttle blips upon
downshifts. Don't forget to check out the heads up display which now shows
more than just your speed and radio channels. It finally shows a tach.
Finally a real engaging Lexus GS!
Real Videos: 2013 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport Sport Sedan Review
In this Real Video, the Real Review features the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport.
All-new for 2013, the F-Sport represents the more sports oriented model of
the GS family. While there is not a lot that changes performance wise, the
personality of the F-Sport is different from the regular GS 350 and the
GS450h (see our RFI on 450h here:
Join us as we discuss the current design, the excitement factor, fuel
economy and day-to-day living in a car that has a special F-Sport seat and
extra exterior ground effects. At almost $60K and in bright red, the GS 350
F-Sport certainly let's you know it is coming down the road. But how does
it fair after a full and complete inspection?

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the GS350:
2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport vs Mercedes-Benz E350 vs BMW 535i race track review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F is taking direct aim
at both the new Mercedes-Benz E350 and the new BMW 535i. We recently had a
chance to drive all three cars on the race track in Las Vegas to compare
how well the newest and perhaps sexiest Lexus does against these two very
well regarded and long established German luxury performance sedans. Check
out this first drive review of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F as we test all
three cars head to head.
2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport revealed Inside and Out
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport is the
sportiest car in the new 2013 Lexus GS line-up. And while you can't get the
F Sport with a bigger engine, it does come with a firmer suspension, dark
red leather interior and a suspension set-up that can be tuned for a much
firmer and sportier ride and handling. Check out his video as we reveal the
2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport
2014 Lexus LX570 takes on the extreme Loveland Gauntlet Blizzard Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What would you call a test of a car's
all-wheel-drive system that combines extreme winter conditions with hairpin
mountain turns and sheer cliffs and 12,000 feet of elevation gain in the
Rocky Mountains in a blinding blizzard? At TFLcar we'd call this the brand
new Loveland Gauntlet. Coming soon we take the brand new 2014 Lexus LX570
up the Loveland Gauntlet. Check out this extreme test of the new 2014 Lexus
LX570's ability to tame the winter mountains in an all out blizzard.
