First 2013 Lexus ES Commercial: Defy Expectations

The video/commercial shown at last week’s New York debut of the 2013 Lexus ES has been posted online:

I’ve been looking forward to posting this, as it’s the best illustration of how much real-life presence the new ES has.

The more time I have to think about the new model, the more surprised I am — the new ES is such a departure from the vehicle it replaces. I’m impressed by Lexus’ willingness to take a risk with one of its volume sellers, and believe that risk will be rewarded with some big sales numbers.
