The New 2013 Lexus Hybrid

 Peterson Lexus  in Boise, Idaho is excited for the newly redesigned GS Hybrid set to debut early 2012.  We are anxiously awaiting to see first hand the changes in Lexus’s second generation hybrid, the Lexus GS 450h.  We are confident that the all-new GS 450h will give our customers that blend of performance and precision with the benefits of luxury hybrid. 


“Today, buyers in the mid-size luxury segment want a more engaging driving experience, styling that makes a statement, and a roomier interior package,” said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “With the all-new GS, we’re giving them what they asked for, and more.”



Today, the GS 450h is the world’s first luxury performance car to be equipped with a V6 Atkinson cycle gas engine and two-motor hybrid system.  Lexus  has designed the GS with a sculpted exterior that is so precise that it will take this luxury line of  vehicles to a whole new level.  When designers shaped the GS they had the LFA supercar  in mind.  The flow of air around the vehicle maximizes the areodynamic efficiency.  The rear bumper has aero fins that will help control the airflow from the underbody.    The GS line will have three new colors to add to the Lexus color palette: Rivera Red, Meteor Blue Mica and Liquid Plantinum.  Lexus has developed a new coating process for the Liquid Platinum exteriors.  The GS will be the first to have this new advanced process.





Changes to the new Lexus GS 450h (standard model):    

  •  The new  GS will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds.
  • Reductions in fuel consumption and emissions.
  • The new Drive Mode selector.
  •  The engine noise reduction through lightweight chain technology.
  • System Control enhancements.
  • The new WIL (Whiplash Injury Lessening) front seats.
  • Modifications to the Electronically Controlled Braking (ECB)
