TORONTO, Ontario –In 2018, the all-new seventh-generation Lexus ES redefined its status among entry-level luxury sedans with a striking exterior design and transformative performance made possible by the Global Architecture–K (GA-K) platform. For the 2022 model year, the new ES family builds upon this recipe for success with numerous multimedia, safety, style, and color updates. With the added variety, the ES Family continues to offer Lexus guests choices to fit their diverse interests and lifestyles.
All Lexus interiors are designed to blend a driver-centric cockpit with spacious and comfortable areas for the passengers. This concept was introduced in the LC coupe, refined in the flagship LS sedan and was expanded to the seventh-generation ES. Lexus calls this concept “Seat in Control,” a simple idea that says, from the moment you get in, all the controls you need are within reach and all the information you want is in plain view. In true Lexus fashion, the 2022 ES embraces continuous improvement with human-centered updates to the Lexus Multimedia System and available Navigation System. The standard 8.0-inch and available 12.3-inch color multimedia displays have been moved forward 110 mm and now feature touch-screen functionality, in addition to the remote touch interface, for intuitive driver and front passenger interaction. Additional interior updates for 2022 include a streamlined instrument panel design that embraces seamless cabin integration.
The 2022 ES continues the brand’s commitment to safety with an upgrade to Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 (LSS+ 2.5) as standard equipment on all trim levels. Already one of the most sophisticated systems of its kind, LSS+ 2.5 adds new capabilities over LSS+ 2.0 that help provide additional safety to the driver and passengers.
The 2022 ES receives various exterior design updates, including a new grille pattern on all trims, excluding ES F SPORT. The new mesh pattern emphasizes the vehicle’s elegant design with a series of concentric “L” shapes that radiate from the front Lexus emblem, all finished in a new Graphite paint. This new grille design offers a refreshed look, while still preserving ES’s provocative elegance. Tying the frontend design together are redesigned standard bi-LED headlamps with dynamic auto-leveling.
More information regarding MSRP, options, and exterior and interior color choices will be made available closer to launch. The 2022 ES is expected to arrive in dealerships later this Fall.
