The new Lexus ES is offered with three powertrains, one special edition model, and four main trim levels which are the Base, Luxury, F Sport, and Ultra Luxury. In total, the range offers 12 unique configurations so there is no lack of choice for customers.
The ES 250 gets AWD as standard and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine developing 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. In the ES 350, FWD is standard but the 3.5-liter V6 generates a stronger 302 hp and 267 lb-ft. Finally, the FWD ES 300h hybrid’s 2.5-liter four-pot and electric motor develop a combined 215 hp. In terms of powertrain and trim compatibility, there is no F Sport version of the ES 300h and the Black Line Special Edition is only based on the ES 350 F Sport.
All base models get standard exterior features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting, and a power moonroof. On the inside, there is NuLuxe synthetic leather upholstery, ten-way power-adjustable front seats, and keyless entry with push-button start. An eight-inch color display forms the foundation of the infotainment system and provides access to Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration, in-car Wi-Fi, and the ten-speaker sound system.
The Luxury trim introduces wood trim with ambient lighting, perforated leather upholstery, a 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a power rear sunshade, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and intuitive parking assist with auto braking.
