2019 Lexus ES 350 F Sport First Drive | Review | Edmunds

Associate Staff Writer Will Kaufman traveled to Nashville to get his hands on the newest generation of America's best-selling midsize luxury sedan, the 2019 Lexus ES. In this preliminary review, he'll talk about what sets the 2019 ES 350, the ES 300h hybrid and, of course, the ES 350 F Sport apart from the previous model. Lexus' extensive redesign has improved the ES in just about every way, and the new F Sport trim is meant to up the nameplate's sporting appeal. Has Lexus made the old standby into something worth getting excited about? Q: When will the 2019 Lexus ES be available? A: The new ES will go on sale later this year. Q: How much will the 2019 Lexus ES cost? A: Official pricing has not yet been announced but shouldn't differ greatly from the current generation. Lexus expects pricing to start at around $39,000. Q: What engine does the 2019 Lexus ES use? A: The ES 350 uses a 3.5-liter V6 that has been bumped up to 302 horsepower, while the hybrid drivetrain in the ES 300h now makes 215 hp and returns an impressive 44 mpg combined. Q: How does the 2019 Lexus ES compare to the Lexus GS? A: The GS is a rear-wheel-drive car that competes more directly with traditional luxury sport sedans. Especially in GS F guise, it's a roaring good time. However, it's also a little smaller and offers less interior room than the front-wheel-drive ES. Q: Does the 2019 Lexus ES have all-wheel drive? A: While Lexus has said it is "investigating" all-wheel drive, the ES is only available as a front-wheel-drive car. Q: Where is the 2019 Lexus ES made? A: The Lexus is made in Lexus' Kentucky plant and in Kyushu, Japan. ES 350 models are made in both plants, while the ES 300h is assembled exclusively in Japan. *Correction: Lexus is looking into the inclusion of Android Auto, but no decision has been made about if it will come to Lexus vehicles and, if it does, how it will be added or what that addition would require in terms of software or hardware updates.

2019 LEXUS ES, Bolder styling, more rigid body possible with new chassis

2019 LEXUS ES, Bolder styling, more rigid body possible with new chassis This is chapter three of the evolution of Lexus, and designers were given freedom to create new silhouettes. So we headed to Nashville for our first time behind the wheel of the new ES, which is longer, lower, and wider than before. The styling is bolder, following the lead of the LC and LS. LED taillights wrap around the cab and contribute to the wider, more planted stance punctuated by chrome exhaust tips.

2019 Lexus ES 300h Hybrid First Drive Review

If you're looking for the most efficient luxury car in America without a plug, or simply the luxury car that'll cost you the least to own, look no further than the 44 MPG Lexus ES Hybrid. The all-new model doubles down on efficiency, interior refinements and finally gadgets with the addition of Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — For 2019, the Lexus ES is all new and marks the

seventh generation of the Japanese nameplate's entry-level luxury

four-door. We're happy to report that the redesign brings some very

welcome attributes, and the 2019 Lexus ES does everything you'd want

an entry-level luxury vehicle to do. Performance, no matter which of

the two drivetrain options you choose, is respectable, interior

comfort is on par with a Restoration Hardware sofa you'd spend real

money on, handling is communicative, and most important for a Lexus,

it's serenely quiet inside. While these are great attributes, there

are a few places we wish Lexus had spent more energy revamping.

Through the humid hill country just outside Nashville, on a mix of

the congested city arteries and the flowing switchbacks of

Tennessee's forested interior, we put the ES through its paces. The

2019 ES is based on Toyota's TNGA platform, which underpins both the

latest Avalon and Camry models. Perhaps that'd constitute a knock in

a previous era, but the new Camry chassis is a rollicking peach

compared to some others in its class. It's rigid enough for a windy

road dance, but compliant enough for daily-driver duties.

Even better, Lexus engineers improved the TNGA platform for use in

the ES. A 200 percent increase in stiffness over the previous ES is

due in part to a liberal use of structural adhesives and laser-welded

screws. The front strut towers are reinforced, and topped with a

brace between them. This extra attention to detail pays dividends

that include a smoother ride and better handling.

New adaptive Dynamic Control Shocks quietly smooth out bumps and

undulations, allowing us to wind through the rural backcountry roads

confidently, and the steering gives better feedback than we'd expect

from a vehicle like the Lexus ES. Pushing the big sedan into one of

the many hilly, and often blind, corners along our route elicits only

a minute amount of body roll. But chassis improvements aren't the

only upgrade from the previous model.

The 2019 Lexus ES comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 delivering 302

horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 267 pound-feet of torque at 4,700 rpm.

This represents a bump of 34 hp and 19 lb-ft from the previous

generation's V6. The engine is coupled to Lexus' new eight-speed

automatic transmission, which is encased in a housing smaller than

the brand's previous six-speed automatic. The transaxle has been

tuned to provide drivers with a more linear and smooth power

delivery, thereby increasing the overall luxury feel of the ES.

More environmentally conscious customers can opt for a 2.5-liter

four-cylinder hybrid. While its 215 horsepower figure is sufficient,

its big selling point is an average fuel economy of 44 mpg. The

electrified powerplant is hitched to the brand's Electronically

Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission, which is packaged more

efficiently just like the non-hybrid's eight-speed automatic. While

either engine option will tackle winding roads like those we

encountered in Tennessee without issue, the bigger V6 pulls like a

champ and is certainly the better option for driving
