Lexus Sedans to be Completely Redesigned by 2013 plus LFA Roadster Coming

Lexus recently lost its sales crown to Mercedes-Benz and BMW, but Lexus could quickly bounce back thanks to a revamped lineup. Currently the automaker’s sedan lineup has aged, but all-new models are going to start arriving early next year, starting with the all-new GS.

Our first preview of the new Lexus lineup came in the form of the LF-Gh hybrid concept that was unveiled at the New York Auto Show. The LF-Gh previewed Lexus new design direction, which is said to become bolder and more distinct. The concept was also a preview of the all-new GS sedan that is going to debut next month in Pebble Beach.

The first new Lexus sedan will be the 2013 GS that will arrive in early 2012. The GS will share its platform with the smaller all-new IS that will debut in late 2012. The Camry-based ES is set to debut in the summer of 2012 and the flagship LS sedan is expected to get a redesign and debut in the spring of 2013.

Lastly and obviously more exciting is a rumor that a roadster version of the LFA supercar is set to debut in mid-2014.
