The ES 350 entry luxury sedan continues to be a Lexus favorite with its comfortable cabin and smooth ride. With a plethora of standard amenities, such as 17-inch wheels, moonroof, 10-way power adjustable front seats, leather-trimmed seats and a multi-information display, the ES continues to impress new and loyal consumers. The ES 350 cruises into the 2012 model year virtually unchanged except for the new Nebula Gray Pearl exterior, which replaces Smoky Granite Mica; and the discontinuation of Peridot Mica.
The ES 350's aluminum 3.5-liter V6 produces 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 248 lb.-ft. peak torque at 4,700 rpm using 87-octane regular fuel. The ES has EPA fuel economy estimates of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 28 on the highway. The chain-driven camshafts employ Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (Dual VVT-i) for optimal performance and efficiency at all engine speeds.
The six-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) provides a sequential manual shift feature for a more involved driving experience when desired. Shifting strategy adapts to driver input, with rapid downshift response.
► 2012 Lexus GX 460
The capable GX 460 transitions into the 2012 model year with minimal
changes. The standard model receives color-keyed bodyside molding with a
chrome accent, while the Premium model now features a high-gloss wheel
finish. In addition, the Fire Agate Pearl exterior replaces Peridot Mica.
The GX 460 takes its model designation from its 4.6-liter V8 engine that
produces 301 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and
329 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,500 rpm. The 32-valve DOHC engine features
aluminum alloy cylinder heads and block with dual Variable Valve Timing
with Intelligence (VVT-i), which controls valve timing and overlap on both
the intake and Exhaust camshafts to
optimize power, fuel efficiency and emissions.
The GX 460's fuel economy is better than other V8 luxury utility vehicles
and competitive with some six-cylinder models with its EPA-estimated 17 mpg
combined, 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway ratings.
The 4.6-liter V8 is teamed to a six-speed electronically controlled
automatic transmission with sequential shift. The responsive powertrain is
quiet and helps the GX 460 tow up to 6,500 lbs.
► 2013 Lexus LX 570 - INTERIOR
The spacious, eight-passenger cabin of the LX 570 receives a number of
upgrades and changes. The driver's seat gets a new Easy Access system,
which makes entering and exiting the vehicle easier. The steering wheel and
driver's seat automatically retract when the ignition is turned off. Front
seats also feature improved cooling, and a 120-volt power outlet has been
added to the middle row. The instrument panel has been updated and a new
color display is applied. A dark chrome finish for the center instrument
cluster and front side air vents, along with a new chrome accent above the
glove box, freshen the look of the instrument panel as well.
The cabin of the 2013 LX 570 also gets mahogany wood trim. Parchment
replaces Cashmere as an interior leather trim color. Two new exterior
colors are available: Medium Nebula Gray Pearl and Satin Cashmere Metallic,
replacing Twilight Gray Metallic and Golden Almond Metallic.
The LX 570 offers an optional Luxury Package that includes a cool box for
beverages; semi-aniline leather-trimmed upholstery with contrast stitching,
heated steering wheel and mahogany wood trimmed door door switch plates;
heated and ventilated front seats and heated second-row seats (outboard
position only); and Smart Access.
In addition to the Luxury Package, the new LX 570 now features a rear dual
screen rear-seat entertainment system with wireless headphones and
three-prong electrical outlet. This system allows two video sources to be
viewed at the same time -- for instance, one can be used as a DVD player
while the other as a game console or audio player.
For audiophiles, a 19-speaker Mark Levinson® Reference Surround Sound
audio system is also available with 450-watts maximum power and 15
► 2012 Lexus RX 350
The Lexus RX 350 teams a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a six-speed
Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) for an
output of 270 horsepower at 6,200 rpm.
Intake and Exhaust manifolds have been
tuned for enhanced performance and fuel economy. Lexus maximized the
torque output to better meet the needs of luxury crossover drivers. Ninety
percent or more of the 248 lb.-ft. of peak torque is available from 2,300
to 6,100 rpm, an optimal range where torque is most utilized. An insulated
engine cover, styled in the shape of two cylinder banks, conceals the V6 to
help ensure a quiet cabin; easy-access points facilitate routine service.
Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) is used to control
both intake and Exhaust camshafts
independently, optimizing engine performance at all speeds and loads.
Refinements to the valvetrain, including roller rocker arms and slimmer
valve stems, reduce friction and weight to improve fuel economy. Also
helping to enhance torque is the improved Acoustic Control Induction System
(ACIS), which varies the intake runner length in response to engine speed
and throttle position. The ETCS-i (Electronic Throttle Control System with
intelligence) softens throttle response during initial acceleration for
smoother takeoff and to help reduce wheel spin.
The RX 350's six-speed automatic transmission yields a quick shifting
response with help from miniature high-flow linear solenoids that control
transmission-fluid line-pressure. The torque converter uses a low-speed
lockup damper to enable lock-up from second to sixth gear to help improve
the fuel economy.
When applying the accelerator pedal rapidly during kick-down, the
direct-downshift control allows the transmission to directly shift from
sixth to third or fifth to second, skipping the intermediate gears to
achieve the quickest response. Under normal kick-down pedal application,
downshift control uses the intermediate gears to ensure the smoothest shift
is attained. "Shift shock" is further reduced.
The Multi-Mode Sequential Shift Automatic Transmission allows the driver to
shift manually when desired by first moving the gated shift lever to the
"S" slot and then pushing it forward ("+") to up shift and backward ("-")
to downshift. An Intelligent Shift Control sets shift patterns based on
the vehicle speed and throttle position and estimates road conditions and
driver input to automatically control the shift pattern. For example, when
driving in hilly areas, this system can prevent unnecessary shifting. When
descending inclines, the transmission prevents up shifts to achieve more
The RX 350 AWD model features an electronically controlled Active Torque
Control AWD system. Active Torque Control AWD uses an electronically
controlled coupling ahead of the rear differential to vary torque
distribution anywhere from 100:0 to 50:50 front to rear, depending on
driving dynamics and road conditions. When accelerating, or starting off on
a low-grip surface, torque is quickly provided to all four wheels. At
steady speeds, torque is sent only to the front wheels, enhancing fuel
To help provide handling agility and control, the AWD system increases
rear-wheel torque when the vehicle's front tires start to lose traction and
decreases rear-wheel torque when the vehicle's rear tires start to lose
traction. On rough or sandy terrain, an AWD LOCK switch provides enhanced
traction performance for low-speed maneuvering (if in LOCK mode, the system
reverts to AUTO mode when speed exceeds 25 mph). To help prevent a tight
corner-braking condition (shuddering) during low-speed cornering, the
system reduces rear wheel torque.

* This is Cameron's Top Recommended Midsize Luxury Sedan *
What I have to say about the 2012 Lexus ES 350: For 2013, Lexus is
redesigning the ES and there will also be a hybrid available. The 2012 is
still a very good car is very recommended by me, but the 2013 will even be
better. The Leather in this car is so good it almost soaks you into it,
which alot of cars don't do that. Technology is pretty good too as well as
the room. The 2012 Lexus ES 350 is good if your looking for a midsize
luxury sedan and if your looking something more special than the typical
Camry, well this is your car.

The Lexus ES is a luxurious sedan that specializes in a posh interior and
quiet, smooth ride. Fuel economy is relatively good. Don't expect the ES to
be fun to drive though. We've taken a first drive of the new Lexus ES:
Lexus ES 350.
