2013 Lexus LS at Lexus of Portland Launch Event
The 2013 LS line-up includes the LS 460, LS 460L, LS 600hL hybrid, and the firstever LS 460 F Sport. The LS 460 and LS 460L are available in RWD and AWD. The LS Hybrid is available with a full-time AWD system.
The entire 2013 LS lineup is refined with dynamic, fresh styling that reflects the bold new face of Lexus. The aggressive grille gives the new LS a greater road presence and stronger brand identity while heralding a significant improvement in driving dynamics, responsiveness and handling.
In addition to its new design, the LS also has increased body rigidity which enhances stability, and allows for a more comfortable ride. Pitch and bounce control has been enhanced by adopting new frequency dependent shock absorbers, resulting in an even flatter, road-hugging ride. Revised steering offers improvements in accuracy and turn-in response. The braking system has been adjusted for more immediate power and greater pedal feel.
Safety enhancements include the industry’s most advanced Pre-Collision Safety system with Collision Avoidance Assist. This available system is designed to assist the driver in avoiding or mitigating collisions with vehicles and pedestrians under a wide range of city and highway speeds. At speeds lower than 24 miles per hour, this technology helps the LS avoid accidents by automatically bringing the LS to a full stop.
The redesigned interior integrates modern refinement with intuitive technology. The Advanced Illumination System, an all-LED interior lighting system, illuminates to greet the approaching occupants and then fades in sequence with the vehicle starting procedure. The standard navigation system is displayed on a 12.3-inch, split-screen, high-resolution multi-media display which is large enough to support simultaneous viewing of a large map display and other vehicle functions.
“It’s always wonderful to see that Lexus has exciting new product that we are able to showcase at Lexus of Portland,” said Phil Lane, General Manager. “It shows all the hard work from Lexus is paying off.” “For decades, Lexus product and Lexus of Portland have been synonymous with superior quality and reliability,”
