2013 Lexus LS 460 | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Last year, for the first time in 11 years, Lexus was not the best selling luxury brand in the U.S., due primarily to the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated Japan and its commercial industries in general, and Lexus’ manufacturing capabilities specifically. The brand, some surmised, was down for the count. But, like all underdogs whose true strength lies in their indefatigable spirit, Lexus has made it clear it intends to defy all odds.

Intent on addressing the previous models’ shortcomings, the company has its sights set on resurgence with the introduction of the 2013 LS 460. The new LS is what Lexus deems “a significantly redesigned version of the current fourth generation LS.” How significant?… Roughly half of the flagship’s 6000 parts have been upgraded.

It’s been leak city for the 2013 Lexus LS line, allowing us to catch the exteriors of the LS 460 L and LS 460 F Sport from practically every angle. The spindle grille might be the most prominent story of the refreshed LS otherwise there are no monumental changes to the body, but plenty of details did decide to wait for the Lexus luxury flagship’s official unveiling in San Francisco.

As we’ve stated, there are now four flavors of LS from which to choose: the LS 460, LS 460 L, LS 460 F Sport in either or rear or all wheel drive and the AWD LS 600hL hybrid. All of them are more rigid thanks to additional body reinforcements and laser screw welding. The standard-length LS 460, the extended wheelbase LS 460 L, and the hybrid LS 600h L flagship all have a rather comparable driving experience. Brisk acceleration, with a seamless wave of torque, and barely a hint of engine noise make passing and cruising rather effortless, but handling is no forte. The Lexus LS 460 lineup includes a 380-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 and eight-speed automatic transmission, with either rear-wheel drive or all wheel drive (where the engine makes 357 hp and less torque), and can get to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds.

2013 Lexus LS 460 Interior :
2013 Lexus LS 460 Interior. – For the interior, the new LS 460 F-Sport gets sports seats with larger bolsters, a leather wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, and genuine aluminum trim. The interior was designed to keep pace with the exterior, with aluminum pedals, unique trim, deeply bolstered leather F Sport seats, and an array of technological gadgetry. Not only is there a massive 12.3-inch (diagonal) multimedia display, and an abundance of ambient lighting, but there’s also a wealth of less obvious, thoughtful touches like the analog clock that automatically adjusts to time zones and the Climate Concierge, which lets the driver heat or cool the steering wheel, seats, and cabin at the push of one button. Also new this year is the Lexus Enform App Suite, which allows you to use the interactive 12.3-inch screen to access such apps as Pandora, iHeartRadio, and movietickets.com via your smartphone, and can be controlled with voice commands. Rear passengers in long wheelbase versions equipped with the Executive Seating Package can enjoy high definition Blu ray DVDs on the rear-seat entertainment screen.

• Enhancements have been made to the sound insulation for an even quieter cabin.

• The LS features a standard Lexus Premium Audio System with a nine channel amplifier, 10 speakers, CD / DVD player changer, DVD audio and video compatibility, MP3 sound enhancement, HD Radio™ with iTunes tagging, and a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio.

• Optional wood includes Walnut, Shimamoku Espresso, Matte Brown Bird’s Eye Maple. The LS 600h L also offers an eco- friendly Bamboo wood trim.
• The new, Shimamoku finish is an example of the finest traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

2013 Lexus LS 460 Exterior :
2013 Lexus LS 460 Exterior. – The LS received a slight touch up a couple of years ago, and the model that wore the best of the new look is the LS 460 Sport, featuring a subtle body kit that went along with suspension and handling upgrades, and distinctive forged alloy wheels. As for the LS 600h L, it’s distinguished from the nonhybrid cars by a different grille and blue-tinted taillights there’s little, really, to set it apart from less expensive versions, especially from a distance.

Describing it as the most techno logically advanced Lexus ever built, the company believes the LS 460 F Sport can serve as the flagship while also offering cutting-edge sporting capabilities. Although there is always a good deal of risk and trepidation when revamping a flagship model, Lexus understands it can’t stand still. The pressure is on with a new fifth generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class expected later next year and the BMW 7 Series undergoing a refresh. The competition is unrelenting, and it’s time for Lexus to prove it has revived the DNA that made the first LS so formidable.

• The inverted trapezoidal upper grille and slanted lower grille that were first introduced on the GS sedan have been combined and integrated into a single element on the LS to create a more prominent spindle shape.
• When equipped with the optional three projector LED headlamp unit, the LS offers all LED exterior lighting, including turn signals an fog lamps
• LS 460 F SPORT features a unique front fascia with an enhanced three-dimensional mesh grille, larger cooling openings, black grille surround, and round fog lamps. A chrome-plated bar running along the bottom edge of the rear bumper accentuates the lowered center of gravity. F SPORT exterior badging completes the look.
• LS F SPORT offers six exterior colors; Ultra White is exclusive to F SPORT.

2013 Lexus LS 460 Engine :
2013 Lexus LS 460 Engine. – The 2013 LS 460 F-Sport will still be powered by the same 4.6-liter V8 engine found in the standard model that delivers a total of 386 HP and 367 lb-ft of torque for the RWD version and 360 HP and 347lb-ft for the AWD version. The engine, which will be mated to an eight-speed sequential shift automatic transmission, will sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 130 mph (electronically limited).

We’ve spent thousands of miles in LS sedans since they first emerged in 1990, and the uniformity of the experience is amazing. Each one has poured out buttery-smooth power with nary a hair out of place noises quelled, vibrations damped out. The trend continues with the current lineup, which includes a 380 horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 coupled to an eight speed automatic transmission, in rear drive form or fitted with optional all wheel drive (in which case the engine makes 357 hp and slightly less torque, but gets a limited slip differential with a torque bias of 40:60 that can vary from 30:70 to 50:50 depending on road conditions).
