Default Difference of ES300 and Camry v6

Sorry for the stupid question. I had neither one car before. Can someone
tells me whether they are two totally different cars or only different
body but sharing the same engine? Which one would you pick for a 2000 es300
compare with a brand new camry V6?

Thanks for your comment.

Here's my humble opinion since I have had both.

The ES300 (which I now have) has a better turning radius than my Camry. It
drives, for me, an lot smoother on the highway. It has a lot more amenities
like heated front seats, ABS, bunch of other stuff. I have had 4 Camry's
before this ES and really like them but the ES is just a step above the
Camry.

New Camry can have heated seats, ABS is standard here in Canada with the V6.
The V6 VVTi engine is now on the Camry too, at least here in Canada. Used to
be that the VVTi heads were reserved for the ES300, that changed here in mid
2002.
I'd say extra insulation, different suspension tuning, trim differences, and
extra dealer care (and profit for both the dealer and Toy) are the biggest
difference to the XLE
They certainly do use the same body shell, and I would expect one to last
just as long as the other.
Are the extra comforts, insulation, dealer care worth the extra $$ to you?

So that means, other than the extra insulation, the engine are pretty much
the same as well as the performance.. Then I should ask myself whether the
$10K price difference worths the supsension, service and trimming.

Oh. I was thinking at 150,000 miles, my Camry would be scrapped. Nice to
see that my car would last well beyond that.

Thanks!

Heard that. I still have the original clutch, etc. I taught my son to
drive stick two summers ago. He drives it on weekends, and I think that
he dogs it. I am about to take it in for its annual check up. I too,
plan to make 300,000 miles.
