Just curious if anyone knows what was changed for the Platinum version for 2013... if anything. I can see the dual exhaust, but that can be picked up on the Premium package, but is there much else? I am assuming power train is all the same, and still has heated/cooled cup holders, 3 dvd.... did they do anyting new?

I just purchased a new 2013 ESV Platinum. Love the vehicle. Gets lots of compliments.

I traded in a 2011 ESV Luxury. I noticed the 2013 Platinum has Grade Assist Braking. It downshifts the tranny automatically on a long down hill grade.

The 2012 has this too, works great

Maybe just added a tint band on the windshield?
