With 2014 coming quickly around the corner, Lexus has recently announced updates for the 2014 model year IS F, GS 350, GS 450h and the GX 460. The first 2014 model that was introduced this year is the all-new 3rd generation Lexus IS.

The updates are pretty substantial for the IS F, GS and GX models. The GS 350 gets the Aisin-built AA81E 8 speed transmission from the 2014 IS. The GS 450h gets an updated Aisin-built T-100 CVT which now features traditional gear shift like steps which mimic gearing like a traditional 8AT. The GX 460 receives a front and rear end exterior refresh with LED headlamps and foglamps, and finally the IS F which is rumored to be in it's final year of production will get some welcome exterior and interior updates including a carbon fiber rear decklid spoiler and LED fog lamps.
