Video: 2013 Lexus ES Debuts in New York

As I work through all the information about the new sixth-generation Lexus ES, the first thing to share is this video of Lexus General Manager Mark Templin introducing the car today at the New York Auto Show:

Even though we knew what the ES looked like before its reveal today, photos alone can’t convey the presence of this car — if I had to use a single word to describe the new ES, it would have to be substantial. It’s just as Mark Templin describes it — Lexus has taken the ES to “a whole new level”.

(One point that wasn’t included in the video was a call out to the Mercedes E-Class as a direct competitor — this shows me just how confident Lexus is in this new ES.)
