Video: 2013 Lexus GS Sedan Going Diesel


A diesel engine for the Lexus GS sedan is scheduled to arrive in 2013.

Lexus is trying to keep pace with German rivals in the sedan market. The upcoming Lexus GS is set to receive a four-cylinder diesel engine to compete with the Mercedes-Benz E-class and the BMW 5-series. Toyota execs are quoted as saying to Autocar UK that they want to "broaden the appeal of the brand and make it more accessible; and we certainly haven't given up on diesel." Lexus believes the gasoline-electric hybrids will continue to play a huge role in their array of vehicles.

Currently there is only one diesel-powered Lexus on the streets of Britain, the IS. Its 2.2-liter diesel motor puts out 148hp. Lexus has planned for the IS a next generation model soon, with a new, more powerful and efficient diesel engine in the works. Check out the video below to see the GS sedan in action (but only in action, as there is no audio).
