While we’re still in the early part of 2022, automakers are prepping 2023 model year vehicles that will come out this year and Lexus is no exception. New rumors indicate some interesting changes for the 2023 model year ES sedan.
Creative 311 shares that the ES will keep the same 12.3″ screen it has now but will lose Remote Touch all together, as well as the CD player and analog clock. These updates will slightly reshape the center console for new cup holders.
If true, these changes would be interesting because no model in recent memory has eliminated the Remote Touch controller without migrating to the brand new Lexus Interface multimedia system. Could these changes for the ES could flow elsewhere in the lineup to models that haven’t been redesigned recently?
If you appreciate the details, the ES should also get the new Lexus emblem with a black background vs. the open area behind the logo that shows the car’s paint color. Many models have recently switched to this newer logo, such as the GX and NX. Notably, hybrid models will no longer have the blue “glowing” effect and will also have black backgrounds.
More 2023 ES information will be added as we have it.
