    Official: 2013 Lexus GS earns IIHS Top Safety Pick
    1334078940

    The 2013 GS is the new face of the Lexus brand, and as it turns out, that spindle-grilled mug can take a serious punch. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named the GS a Top Safety Pick after the reshaped Lexus sedan held strong in front, side and rollover crash testing. To earn a ...

    Followup: Lexus launches TORI 500 iPhone app racing game [w/video]
    1329515040

    Apparently, being the Official Automotive Marketing partner of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit property was just the excuse Lexus needed to get in touch with swimsuit model Tori Praver. And we can hardly blame them. But what could Praver's statuesque body and perfectly feminine features have to ...

    Video: Lexus maps a curvy Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model with GS sedan
    1329265200

    Lexus is doing whatever it can to convince people that its new GS is not like the anesthetized machinery it's been known for in the past. Part one of that plan was a Super Bowl commercial – a first for Lexus. Part two is throwing some sex into the mix. Lexus has earned (or more likely paid ...

    1328623200

    Buick launched its mid-size Regal sedan in late 2010 as a 2011 model, with the Turbo, high-performance GS and eAssist models following suit over the past year. Now, General Motors' tri-shield arm has announced a couple of powertrain updates that will go into effect for the 2013 model year, namely ...

    Video: 2013 Lexus GS unleashed in Super Bowl ad
    1328040000

    Lexus has a redesigned GS that it truly believes can compete with the likes of the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. So it's going where the eyeballs are with its marketing, ponying up for the brand's first-ever Super Bowl ad. Lexus' commercial is just a 30-second spot, joining the likes of ...

    Video: First Lexus Super Bowl ad to star 2013 GS
    1326900600

    Given a moment's thought, it's a little surprising that Lexus, a luxury brand that changed the game, has never run an ad during the Super Bowl. But the home of L-Finesse not only has nine new or updated cars coming out this year, led by the 2013 GS, it has a new attitude, which will be ...

    First Drive: 2013 Lexus GS 450h [w/video]
    1325264220

    Lexus' Best Compromise Yet Ever since the Prius unexpectedly became the Xerox of hybrids and a greenie icon, Toyota has been trying to figure out how to apply the technology to its other models. Its results have been decidedly mixed, nowhere more so than with its luxury lineup. But with the 2013 ...

    Official: Lexus holds steady on price for redesigned GS
    1324567740

    More proof that Lexus is a motivated seller when it comes to its 2013 GS 350: the base price of the rear-wheel drive model won't change from 2011. That means $46,900 (plus $875 handling) will put you into the comprehensively and vastly improved sedan – or, for any of you who might actually ...

    First Drive: 2013 Lexus GS 350
    1322067420

    If This Is The New Lexus, We Can Stop With The Pejoratives So Lexus wants to be taken seriously now. Certainly the brand is a heavyweight – and has been since the moment it launched 22 years ago, changing the luxury market almost overnight. It's just had trouble garnering the respect of ...

    Report: Smaller hybrid drivetrain coming to Lexus GS
    1322059440

    The flavors of Lexus GS on offer in Europe will differ slightly from those here: we will both get the GS 450h, but we'll only step down to the GS 350 for an entry-level model, while the Europeans will make do with a GS 250 housing a 2.5-liter V6. That smaller-capacity sedan is meant to challenge ...

    Official: Lexus unveils GS 250 in Guangzhou
    1322006400

    Lexus will launch the 2013 GS in 350 and 450h variants here in the United States, but elsewhere, buyers will be able to opt for an entry-level GS 250 – a vehicle that just made its debut at the Guangzhou Motor Show in China. Much like the other 250-badged vehicles, the GS will be powered ...

    Rumormill: The LFA-powered Lexus GS rumor that won't die
    1321918380

    When society finally crumbles and the human race vanishes from the face of the Earth, the cockroaches will still be passing around certain automotive rumors. Their antennae will twitch with whispers of an independent-rear-suspension Mustang and a mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette. Now it appears ...

    SEMA: 2013 GS 350 F Sport brings a little edge to Lexus' midsizer
    1320260460

    Lexus pulled the sheets off of its 2013 GS 350 F Sport at SEMA 2011. The performance package helps give the luxury sedan some much-needed attitude with the addition of a more menacing front fascia. The changes aren't merely aesthetic, however. Lexus also substitute larger anti-roll bars for ...

    Official: Lexus unveils 2013 GS 350 F Sport ahead of SEMA
    1319565480

    Over at Lexus, F stands for performance. Think F as in LFA. Think F as in IS-F. And think F as in F Sport, the series of kits that ever so subtly change a Toyota luxury vehicle's attitude from sedate to sporty. So if you thought the new Lexus GS sedan could use a shot of adrenaline, we've got ...

    Frankfurt: 2013 Lexus GS 450h does the electric slide
    1316021400

    What might the 2013 Lexus GS 450h add to the additional performance goodness delivered in the 2012 Lexus GS 350? More power and more fuel efficiency, for starters. The second-gen hybrid system boots out 338 total horsepower for a 5.6-second sprint to 60 mph. That's 32 hp more than the GS 350 and ...

    Report: Lexus vows bolder design, won't "always stay in the middle of mainstream"
    1315958340

    Lexus design has never been very flashy, and many might say (including us) the automaker's entire current lineup is a bit bland-looking (LFA supercar excepted, natch). But that visual conservatism may be about to change: Automotive News is reporting that the Japanese juggernaut plans to change ...

    Official: 2013 Lexus GS 450h to debut in Frankfurt
    1314899940

    Perhaps Lexus was none too happy with the open-handed slap Infiniti dealt it in the luxury-hybrid-sports sedan war. Sure, those two are the only ones playing that game, but if you're in the fight you want to win it, right? Lexus is certainly not going quietly in this battle, and the Japanese ...

    Teased: Lexus teases GS F-Sport and GS 450h
    1314396060

    Lexus may have debuted the 2012 GS 350 as part of last week's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance festivities in California, but the automaker isn't quite done with the rollout of its new rear-wheel-drive sedan. Seen here, Lexus has just released two teasers of two more models in the GS range: the ...

    We've endured the teasers, seen the leaks and even driven a prototype, and now the wraps officially come off. This is the 2013 Lexus GS 350, the automaker's latest bid to create a driver-focused mid-sizer aimed at the hearts, minds and wallets of would-be 5 Series and E-Class buyers. It might be ...

    Spy Shots: 2012 Lexus GS leaks out ahead of Pebble Beach debut
    1313529960

    It's weird for us to report on leaked photos of a car that we've already driven, but we still haven't seen the completely finished 2012 Lexus GS. The sedan will make its public debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this coming weekend, but it appears that photos of the unwrapped prototype ...
