Lexus has revealed details of its lineup for the 2016 Tokyo Motor Show. The Toyota-owned luxury brand will have two cars making their Japanese debut among a total of 11 cars. There will also be a new concept car that will express Lexus’ future vision of progressive luxury, but nothing’s known so far about this concept.
Lexus GS F:
This performance sedan will have its Japanese debut. The body of the GS F bears the signature spindle grille and has large air intakes; Lexus says that it has a low center of gravity with an overall design that should appeal to motorsport fans. The sedan has dimensions of 4,915 mm, 1,855 mm and 1,440 mm in length, width and height respectively. It also has a wheelbase of 2,850 mm with seating capacity for 5 people.
Power comes from a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine belting out 467 hp and 389 lb.-ft. (527 Nm) of torque. Power is sent exclusively to the rear wheels via an 8-speed Sport Direct Shift Transmission.
This facelifted 2016 Lexus GS sedan is also making its home-country debut along with its high-performance sibling which is a first-ever product. The GS has LED lighting at both ends with Adaptive High-Beam System (AHS) coming as options. The new model features the familiar Spindle grille as well as updated front bumpers, rocker moldings and rear combination lamps. The length, width and height of the GS is 4,880 mm, 1,840 mm and 1,455 mm; it has a wheelbase of 2,850 mm, similar to the F variant.
One of Lexus’ best-selling models – the RX, will be showcased at the show. The fourth generation RX sports a huge chrome-outlined spindle grille at the front, U-shaped wheel arches at the side and floating roof with a blacked-out C-pillar at the rear. The new RX is 4,890 mm, 1,895 mm and 1,710 mm in length, width and height respectively. The wheelbase is at 2,790 mm which should give adequate room for seating 5 occupants in comfort.
