Once solely reserved for the SC 430, Lexus announced today at the Chicago Auto Show that three more models will be available in the Pebble Beach Edition. It starts with the release of a PBE RX 350 in mid-February, followed by an ES 350 in March and a LS 600hL sometime in the fall.

Here’s a breakdown of the RX 350 & ES 350 changes (the LS 600hL was only announced, no details were given):

  1. I wonder if they are watering down the pebble beach nameplate by offering it on the RX and ES. I think offering it on the LS600h is a good idea

  2. I'm glad I found your web-page; you find most of the Lexus materials first, and present it in a non-biased way (list the good with the bad)… I just wanted to bring up one typo: you listed the LS in the caption, when it should have been SC… no biggie, just keep up the great work.

  3. Thanks for the compliments, Richard!

    Perhaps I should have used a different image for this post, but there will be an LS 600hL Pebble Beach Edition released in Fall 2008. If there's an error I'm missing, feel free to email me or post it here.
