This new shot of the ES doesn’t really surprise us since the cat was already let out of the bag in China. The car will make it’s official, debut at the New York International Auto Show where journalists will all pretend to be surprised by the new look.
We are still looking forward to the final specifications and trim levels though. It’ll likely get the huge, 12-inch screen from the 2013 GS. No doubt the stalwart 3.5L V6 that’s powered just about everything Toyota builds since about 2005 will be under the bonnet as well. Worth considering is the possibility of a hybrid model as well. Considering Lexus has already filed away the ES300h trademark, it’s pretty much a guarantee.
Here’s the press release:
