10 Things You Didn’t Know about the 2019 Lexus ES 350

With the 2019 Lexus ES 350, athleticism emerges while allowing elegance to persist. If you’re looking for a new car this year, this just may be the one for you (and your family!) Continue reading to find out 10 things you didn’t know about the 2019 Lexus ES 350 and see if it’s right for you.

1. ES

First, in case you’re wondering, ES stands for “Elegant Sedan” and the words don’t lie. This is one of the most elegant sedans ever manufactured by any automobile manufacturer, let alone Lexus. Lexus is already know for their elegance and luxury and the ES is no different.

2. Five Generations

The first ES arrived in late 1989. However, five generations later, the Lexus ES is still being rolled out with an upgraded list of luxury credentials adding more personality to this elegant car with each new generation.

3. Highs & Lows

The best things about the Lexus ES 350 is that its whisper quiet, has a gorgeous interior, shapely outer body of sheetmetal, and has an F Sport athleticism. What’s not the best is its leisurely standard-model dynamics and vague hybrid steering, but both seem lost in the car’s elegance and power.

4. Seventh Generation

This is actually the seventh generation of the ES, riding on a variation of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). TNGA also supports both the new Avalon and Camry as well. The ES has revised proportions which radiate a sense of purpose as well as a sense of power and is the first ES to have the F Sport variant.

5. Body-shell Rigidity

The Lexus engineering team tout this aspect as one of several of the car’s bragging points. It affects several critical elements of the chassis, such as the suspension pickup points, while it adds a slight bump on the weight scales. Weighing in at seventy-eight pounds than its predecessor, it’s only a slight weight gain.

6. Standard V-6

The ES 350 will offset the small weight difference with it’s standard 3.5-liter V-6 engine. The engine will be feed with a combined direct and port fuel-injection system. Overall, this “Elegant Sedan” will have a horsepower of 302.

7. Eight Speed

Yes, you read that right! A new eight-speed automatic transmission will replace the previous six-speed. This amps the take off hustle to sixty miles an hour in just 6.6 seconds, a half a second faster than the 2018 model. However, this number is thought to be conservative, so don’t be surprised if you can hit a mile in under five seconds.

8. Hybrid Option

As with the previous generation, the ES also has a hybrid which runs off both gasoline and electricity. This model has 215 horsepower, which is nothing to be embarrassed by, especially in a hybrid.

9. Powertrain

Although the powertrain is the same as the standard ES, the F Sport makes the new generation feel more athletic. This is due to suspension tuning which is highlighted by adaptive dampers, responding quickly to road surface changes in conditions. This translates to tactile steering that’s precise, eager responses, and level cornering attitudes.

10. Steering

The ES story wouldn’t be complete without this interesting element. Like most new cars, the rack-and-pinion system is assisted electronically with the redesign allowing the motor to move from the steering column to the rack. This arrangement generally delivers a much more accurate system with more of a tactility sense.

In Closing, the new 2019 Lexus ES 350 comes with your choice of tasteful decors, using only first-rate materials. Features include a lengthy list of standard safety features in addition to a premium audio system, Amazon Alexa and Siri Eyes Free integration, Apple CarPlay compatibility, on-board WiFi, an easy to read touchpad-controlled dash screen, an optional head-up display, and an attractive and legible TFT instrument cluster.

Going on sale in the next four to five months, pricing has yet to be announce. However, most feel Lexus will stay with similar and current prices, starting just under the forty thousand dollar mark. However, with all the bells and whistles, that price may be quite a bit higher. Lexus expects twenty percent of their sales to come from the newcomer, but many outside of the automobile manufacturer believe that number to be on the conservative side. Whatever its price, the new Lexus will definitely be turning some heads. After all, the ES line is one of Lexus’ best-selling sedans. With this new arrival, elegance and practicality may go hand in hand.
