•ES 350 Priced 1.7 Percent Lower Than Previous Generation's
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price
•Lowest Hybrid Premium in Lexus line-up
•ES 300h Delivers EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy Ratings of 40 MPG

TORRANCE, Calif. - July 16, 2012 – Lexus today announced
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) for the all-new 2013 ES
350 and first ever ES 300h which will arrive at dealerships next
month. The 2013 ES 350 luxury sedan carries a base MSRP of $36,100,
reflecting a decrease of 1.7 percent versus the previous generation's
MSRP. The ES 300h luxury hybrid sedan will have a MSRP of $38,850,
representing a difference of $2,750 over the ES 350, the lowest hybrid
premium in the Lexus line-up. The ES 350 and ES 300 hybrid will arrive
at dealerships in August. The MSRP does not include a delivery,
processing and handling fee of $895.

For the first time, the Lexus ES will be available with Lexus Hybrid
Drive. Featuring a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine, the
ES 300h is expected to earn EPA fuel economy ratings of approximately
40 mpg city, 39 mpg highway and 40 mpg combined. The ES 300h generates
200 total system horsepower.

The ES 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with Dual VVT-i that
delivers 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 248 lb.-ft. of peak torque at
4,700. The six-speed sequential-shift automatic Electronically
Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) provides enhanced
driving performance, fuel efficiency and smooth shifts. Low friction
materials further improve efficiency and help with the ES 350's
EPA-fuel economy estimates of 21 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 24 mpg

Both the ES 350 and ES 300h feature a Drive Mode selector. Normal mode
provides a blend of performance and efficiency that is suited to
everyday driving, while Eco mode favors fuel economy. Sport mode
increases powertrain and steering responsiveness. The ES 300h adds an
EV mode which allows short distance drives, at reduced speed, using
only the power from the hybrid battery pack.

A stiffer chassis is achieved through lightweight, high tensile
strength steel, added bracing and more body welds. Revised suspension
geometry, shock absorber dampening and a quicker steering gear ratio
deliver more precise handling while enhancing ride comfort.

The ES features a class-leading 10 airbags as standard equipment. The
optional Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps
detect vehicles in side blind spots. The RCTA alerts the driver to
rear cross traffic when backing out of a parking spot. Available Lane
Departure Alert (LDA) is integrated with automatic high beam dimming
technology. The available Pre-Collision System (PCS) uses
sub-millimeter wave radar, designed to detect certain obstructions
traveling ahead and prepare the vehicle for a potential collision.

Lexus Safety Connect®, including Enhanced Roadside Assistance, an
Emergency Assistance Button (SOS), Stolen Vehicle Location services,
and Automatic Collision Notification, is offered on all new Lexus
vehicles with a one-year trial subscription.

The standard Lexus Premium Sound System features eight-speakers with
Automatic Sound Levelizer (ASL), in-dash CD player, USB/iPod®
connectivity, and an integrated SiriusXM Satellite Radio receiver with
a 90-day trial subscription. The available Display Audio package adds
a seven-inch screen, HD Radio™ with iTunes® tagging, Bluetooth® audio,
automatic phone book transfer, a vehicle information display and a
rear backup camera.

An available 15-speaker 835 watt Mark Levinson® audio system features
an eight-inch display screen, DVD audio/video. Exclusive GreenEdge
technology from Mark Levinson doubles the output of the amplifier,
while reducing energy consumption by fifty percent.

The optional HDD Navigation System includes voice command, an
integrated backup camera, an eight-inch screen, and the next
generation Lexus Enform® system with App Suite. Lexus Enform provides
seamless connectivity with Bing™ search, iHeartRadio,, OpenTable®, Pandora®, Yelp® and Facebook Places
through compatible smart phones. Apps are updated through over-the-air
downloads, so new apps and content can be added as they become
available. (A one-year subscription to Lexus Enform with App Suite is
