It looks like the famous sedan will be completely redesigned and the 2020 Lexus ES 350 will be the first iteration. After all, after all these years, the sedan has not been changed in design. Now it is the time for the sedan to get a redesign.
We are going to witness significant changes, according to recent reports. Compared to the previous model, the new Lexus ES 350 will come with lots of improvements. The new sedan will get the company’s new, versatile platform with a new chassis. Of course, these are not the only changes. The new sedan will also have new styling, design and hopefully, better performance.
2020 Lexus ES 350 Redesign & Update
The design is the most notable 2020 Lexus ES 350 changes. In terms of design, the new Lexus will come in similar size and design philosophy. However, there will be many changes to it.
It will use the company’s new platform, the TNGA, a new chassis (which means a new braking system, new brakes, and new suspension) and new steering. All these changes are expected to improve the driving experience. The new Lexus will have similar dimensions to its predecessor albeit with a longer wheelbase.
There will be new styling inside as well. Compared to the current model, the new model will have a cabin with more refinement. The interior will use high-quality materials, too. Since the new Lexus has a slightly longer wheelbase, there will more space inside. Also, the car will come with useful driver assist and safety features.
The next generation Lexus ES will have a standard 3.5-liter, V6 engine capable of generating more than 300 horsepower with 280 lb-ft of torque. While this is the same engine that has been used in many Toyota vehicles, we expect the engine to get some modification and tweaks, so the new Lexus will have a better performance.
If it isn’t, there is nothing to worry about. After all, the engine’s quality and performances have stood the test of time. We also expect to see better fuel economy than the current model, which is rated at 24 mpg in a combined drive.
2020 Lexus ES 350 Release Date and Price
Now, for the 2020 Lexus ES 350 release date. Unfortunately, the release date has not been revealed. While this is true, the new car is said to be released in the second half of 2018 although the exact date is not known.
The price has yet to be revealed as well. Don’t worry. We can still use the current model to approximate the price. The current model is sold at around $39,000 for the base model. We predict the base model of the new Lexus will not be far off from this range.
The 2020 Lexus ES 350 will be a significantly different sedan. Not only in outer appearance, but also in interior and features as well. Unfortunately, the engine is not likely to be changed, but there may be modification and tweaks here and there to improve its performance.
To sum it up, the soon-to-be-released sedan will have a more aggressive look, with better driving experience, new interior styling, better performance, and more features.
