Redesign 2018

The redesigned Lexus ES sedan features a more stylized body with a more prominent version of the brand's polarizing spindle grille. The flattish sides of the current generation are replaced with more contoured shapes. The next-generation ES shares a platform with the redesigned Toyota Avalon. The 2019 Lexus ES, which goes on sale in September, has two powertrain options. The ES 350 gets a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with an updated fuel injection system mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. It delivers 302 hp, up 34 hp from the previous generation. The ES 300h is a fourth-generation hybrid that combines a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor and nickel metal hydride battery for 215 hp.
