It looks like the rumor of a 2010 Lexus ES facelift is right on the mark, as blogger Vince Burlapp has posted a blurry photo of an ES with a revised front-end.
The headlight treatment does seem a little derivative, but I really like the new grille. It has a strong, unique look, especially when you consider the current design.
There is a possibility this image is fake, but I’m inclined to believe it real. In fact, I’ve been told the new grille would resemble the LF-Xh, and that certainly holds up here.
One last interesting thing — there seems to be a blue tint to the Lexus logo. An ES hybrid, perhaps?
