The 2013 Lexus ES: Now With Less Camry

Chinese news sites are leaking pictures of the newest version of the Lexus ES, a.k.a. suburbia's favorite luxury sedan. Set to debut at the Beijing Motor Show in April, we're getting an unexpected view of the posh Camry's less boring new skin and interior.

If you look closely, you can see the Lexus shares its bone structure with the pedestrian 2012 Toyota Camry, like it always has. Toyota still is trying to fool you that you're getting something really special by giving the ES gets Lexus' Predator-grade corporate face and a more swoopy rear.


Also, the headlights and taillights get fancy new LEDs and there are dual exhausts out back.

Even if we don't get the ES250, our ES350 could sport the same look but with the 3.5 liter six-cylinder engine/ six-speed auto combo that you get in a Camry, because, this Lexus ES is just a Camry dolled up for the reserved parking spaces in front of the dentist's office.
