Though we’ve already seen the Chinese-spec 2013 Lexus ES, the luxury automaker has just released a teaser photo of the U.S.-market 2013 ES luxury sedan in advance of its 2012 New York auto show debut.
As on the 2013 Lexus GS, the 2013 ES’ front grille makes a much greater impact than the last-generation ES ever did, thanks to the chrome-trimmed spindle grille and Nike swoosh-like LED daytime running lights. Pulled back headlights will fit in well with the rest of the current Lexus lineup, helping to create a look that we expect will be bolder than the last-generation ES but still on the conservative side.
Powertrains may include a four-cylinder hybrid and carryover V-6 variant, with options including HID headlights, a navigation system with an upsized screen (a la 2013 GS), and a panoramic moonroof.
