With a release date some time this year, Best Car also included is a potential engine lineup — a 2.5L hybrid ES 300h with the Camry 2.5L hybrid powertrain, and the ES 350 with a new 4-cylinder 2.5L turbo engine.

The new ES will be a pivotal vehicle for Lexus, with news today that the GS sedan is on the verge of being discontinued. If these reports prove true, the ES will become the new global mid-size sedan.
