The 2013 Lexus ES
With a lower, progressive profile and continuous styling lines, the all-new Lexus ES exhibits the latest in Lexus Signature Design. Spacious and luxurious, the powerful 2013 ES provides the ultimate driving experience with its dynamic handling and lavish interior. Choose from the ES 350 or the ES 300h Hybrid.
Bold New Design
From the innovative spindle grille, to its lower and wider stance, the distinctive proportions of the 2013 ES create a new face for Lexus. The redesigned interior is more spacious and accommodating than ever thanks to a 1.8 inch longer wheelbase. The option of ambient lighting accents on the dash and doors add a contemporary vibe to its smooth, contoured surfaces. For added confort, the all-new ES expansive rear-seating area offers advanced amenities like a power rear shade and manual side-window shades. Exclusive details also include bamboo trim, a unique wheel design, and a lower rear valance that further accentuates its sleek exterior by concealing the exhaust.
A newly sculptured seat and an additional 4.1 inches of rear seat legroom and 2.8 inches of knee room make the all-new Lexus ES incredibly comfortable and accommodating. The open, ergonomically designed cabin also features improved sightlines and logically placed controls for added driver security and ease. The available Lexus Enform® App Suite, one of the most connected information and communication systems available, provides seamless connection to popular smartphone apps like MovieTickets.com and OpenTable®. The all-new Lexus ES also comes with the option of Remote Touch Interface (RTI) that allows the user to easily operate the climate, audio, phone controls, optional navigation system, and more.
Powerful and efficient, the 3.5-liter V6 engine of the newly redesigned 2013 Lexus ES features low-friction materials, making the most of every drop of fuel. Additionally, a reduction in the steering gear ratio delivers a more direct and responsive driver feel. Combine this with the new lightweight design, an increased dynamic suspension system, and a more rigid chassis, and this luxury sedan offers performance at unprecedented levels. As if that’s not enough, the all-new ES Drive Mode Select lets you opt for ECO, NORMAL or SPORT modes.
Inspiring peace-of-mind, the all-new Lexus ES features an available Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) to help detect vehicles in side blind spots. Also available is a Lane Departure Alert (LDA) integrated with automatic high beam dimming technology and a Pre-Collision System (PCS) that uses sub-millimeter wave radar to detect obstructions and prepare the vehicle for a potential collision. Equally impressive, the 2013 EX boasts an array of standard safety features including a 10 airbag system, Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) front seats, Lexus Safety Connect with Enhanced Roadside Assistance, an Emergency Assistance Button (SOS), Stolen Vehicle Location services, and Automatic Collision Notification to a Safety Connect center.
2013 Lexus ES 300h Hybrid
Announcing the 2013 Lexus ES 300h Hybrid – the first ever Lexus ES available with Lexus Hybrid Drive. Like the ES 350 sedan, the ES 300h Hybrid’s progressive design and enhanced handling are certain to make it a fast favorite of luxury car enthusiasts. With a near-zero evaporative fuel system to help reduce emissions, the ES 300h Hybrid features a durable 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine to improve fuel economy. In fact, the all-new ES Hybrid is expected to earn a combined fuel-economy rating of approximately 40 mpg thanks to the advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system built on five generations of hybrid technology. Even more exciting, the ES Hybrid offers four driver modes: NORMAL, SPORT, ECO and EV. EV mode is for short distance drives at reduced speeds, using only the power from the hybrid battery pack. NORMAL mode is for everyday conditions, and ECO mode is used to increase fuel economy. SPORT mode increases powertrain responsiveness, and in this mode, the Hybrid System Indicator is replaced with a tachometer. The all-new ES 300h Hybrid – one more luxurious way Lexus is driving the leading edge of technology.
