Lexus shows 2019 ES ahead of Beijing debut

The 2019 Lexus ES will be based mostly on the new Toyota Avalon.

Lexus has released the first formal images of its following-generation ES sedan. The 2019 Lexus ES will make its world debut at the upcoming Beijing Motor Present.

The 2019 ES will make a bold style departure from the comparatively sedate ES currently sitting down in Lexus showrooms. The new ES wears and expressive edition of Lexus’ signature spindle grills and its bodywork is significantly additional flowing than modern model.

The 2019 Lexus ES will be mostly dependent on the 2019 Toyota Avalon. Like the Avalon, the ES will journey on Toyota’s new entrance-wheel generate TNGA system. The 2019 ES will be made together with the Avalon in Georgetown, Kentucky.

Specs have not been announced, but the standard ES should arrive geared up with a 3.5L V6 earning about 300 horsepower. A new 8-speed automatic will shift power to the car’s entrance wheels. A hybrid model is also expected and is most likely to use a 2.5L four-cylinder motor mated to an electric powered motor.

Despite a 12 percent dip in product sales last yr, Lexus however managed to produce far more than 58,000 models of the ES in 2017. Sales of the ES are even now falling, but Lexus is hoping the ES’s redesign will reverse that development.

Seem for the 2019 ES to get there in vendor showrooms by the finish of the year.
