    2013 Lexus ES Caught

    Lexus is having a problem with their new vehicles showing up before their official showing. The first one being the new RX crossover. Now, the new ES has been revealed.

    Caught by someone on the XCar fourms, the new ES follows Lexus' new design language. The front end gets the new predator front end grill treatment and LED strips running along the headlights. Around the back, a new set of sculpted side fenders and the trunk lid closely resembling the flagship LS.

    Inside, the GS influence continues. A large screen displaying navigation, radio, and climate takes center stage.Also, simpler surfaces and conservative colors keep it very tame.

    WOW,Talk about a big build up to nothing. Seems to cut people into the I love it or hate it camp based on the comments on the web site where the pictures are posted.

    Over all, Buick has nothing to fear, this car is a let down and I do not see sales going up at all but just selling to existing people who already drank the coolaid.

    This is NOT a conquest auto. Hyundia and Kia are doing better than this Camry warm over.

    Haha wow people on this site hate Lexus. I am not saying I have any plans to buy one but I don't think it's terrible. I mostly agree that it is boring despite the grill. That is their thing though and it has worked for them. Lexus is hardly hurting for business.

    Yeah, the ES has a geriatric image, but I do know two people that bought them--both were under 30...

    The entire Lexus line rests on the RX and ES. I don't think Lexus can afford to screw up the ES... and I also don't think that interior is a step forward for them.
