With the redesigned 2013 Lexus GS 450h sporting much-improved fuel economy and an upgraded interior, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a slight price increase. The 2013 GS 450h, however, still costs the same as the outgoing model, at $59,825. Pricing information has also been released for the updated RX line including the new RX 350 F Sport, and the IS range.
Scheduled for arrival in May, the Lexus GS 450h received a thorough facelift for 2013, along with the new Lexus Drive Mode Select that debuted in the new GS 350. Under the hood, a 3.5-liter V-6 paired with the electric motor puts out 338 hp, and fuel economy is targeted at 29/34 mpg city/highway.
The 2013 RX line received the new face of Lexus that debuted on the GS, which includes the corporate spindle grille, new headlight designs, LED daytime running lights, and new bumper. The RX 350 FWD starts at $40,185, while the RX 350 AWD carries a $41,585 MSRP. While the RX 350 was increased by $235 compared to last year's model, the RX 450h FWD increases by $675 to $46,785. The AWD model starts at $48,185. If it's speed you're after, the RX 350 F Sport, which hits dealers in July, will cost you $47,875.
Starting in May, all 2012 Lexus IS models will go up $200. The base IS 250 model with manual transmission will go for $34,670, while upgrading to the range-topping IS 350 AWD upgrades the price to $43,555.
