If we are talking about the new 2019 Lexus ES 350, this new variant is said to come with sharper and more detailed look than the current model. After all, the ES has something to celebrate about. Being placed in between the luxury LS and the sporty GS, this line hasn’t been viewed much by auto enthusiasts. After all, it has existed from 1989 so it is pretty understandable if refreshments and updates are due along the line.
2019 Lexus ES 350 Updates
Toyota has already made plans for their upcoming 2019 Lexus ES 350. In fact, some of the spy shot images have been available on the net, viewing the vehicle running a test drive on the desert with some of the powerful competitors. The sedan is still under heavy cloak but you can tell that there is something different about this variant – there is definitely something new about the line.
According to some of the sources, the new ES will be smaller in size but with more athletic look and shaper roofline. If you look at the athletic aspect, it is based on the IS. But if you compare it against A6 from Audi or E-Class from Mercy, this ES is somewhat more compact and petite.
2019 Lexus ES 350 Construction
There is no doubt that the new 2019 Lexus ES 350 will be using the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform – the same platform used in Prius. Although they are using this construction, it is highly likely that the engine arrangement will remain the same. The V6 unit will remain and there is possibility of the hybrid unit.
The current ES is coming with V6 engine with 3.5 liter capacity that is delivering 268 hp of power but Toyota is going to tweak it for the 2019 model so the output will be bigger without compromising function. If everything goes as planned, the new model will be coming with front wheel driving system for the standard feature with optional all wheel driving system.
2019 Lexus ES 350 Design
The classic spindle designed grille will likely be removed and it seems that the new ES will be coming with sportier but smaller dual grille. The design of the nose will be different, as the parts being attached to the fascia. More curves will be added to the construction to improve balance in design. Refreshed effect can be expected with the new headlights, fenders, and also side markers. Enthusiasts claim that the new ES will be super smooth with a touch of masculinity and strength.
2019 Lexus ES 350 Engine
Rumor has it that the new 2019 Lexus ES 350 will be coming with two engine options, just like the current production. The four turbocharged unit with 2.0 liter capacity is delivering 241 hp of power while the V6 unit with 3.5 liter capacity is delivering 311 hp of power. Although Toyota hasn’t confirmed it, there is always a possibility of hybrid power were electric motor is paired with the V6 3.5 liter unit, delivering 338 hp of power.
Because there hasn’t been much info to offer, let’s wait for further updates. Predictions state that the new 2019 Lexus ES 350 will likely start from around $46,000.
