2016 Lexus ES 350 debuting at 2015 Shanghai Auto Show

Friday, April 10th 2015. | Lexus

Since 1989, the ES sedan from Lexus has been presented and it means it is not a newcomer. The company produced the sixth generation in 2012 that is launched as 2013 version. At that time, we could see the more significant changes. In order to deal with the tight competition right now, of course we expect to see 2016 Lexus ES 350 with the mid-cycle facelift such as the upgrades for refreshments as other new cars. In 2015 model, the car received few upgrades. It would be more complete if 2016 Lexus ES 350 has more enhancements and refreshments especially for the bodywork.

2016 Lexus ES 350


There will be more visible changes provided by the company in order to present 2016 Lexus ES 350 especially for the front end. That is the common and the easiest thing that other automaker also does since the changes around the front will give no big cost of modification but it is quite effective to give great impact for its changes. As the new model, this car is released with redesigned grille, reshaped headlights, some alterations for the details around the front end, redesigned turn signal and also bumper. It is not something too much if we expect to see new colors.


Around the cabin, people are expecting to see more revisions for few features around it. There will be some list of standards and upgrades. The car has better upholstery materials with new interior trims. There will be two trims to offer such as base and crafted line as well as hybrid and regular models for 2016 Lexus ES 350.

Performance and MPG

We have big prediction that the company will keep the current engine for its performance especially for ES models. Other variants are possible to go with new improvements around the engine. It is mentioned that the 2016 Lexus ES 350 is powered with V6 engine 3.5 liter to produce 268 horses and 248 pound-feet of torque as the only engine. It is paired to six-speed auto transmission with front-wheel drive system. About the fuel economy, it goes with the same EPA rating as the current which means 21/31/24 mpg city/highway/combined. For hybrid, 300h version has four-cylinder 2.5 liter paired to electric motor to produce about 200 horses. It is transmitted through front wheels with the support of ECVT-i. It has better fuel economy compared to 350 variant with 40 mpg in city.

2016 Lexus ES 350 Price and Release Date

2016 Lexus ES 350 is possible to be offered with increased price tag. Although we have no confirmation yet from the official about its exact price, we think that the 350 variant could be started with the cost about $39k and for 300h could be about $42k. It should be released at the second half of this year. It means that we only need to wait few months ahead to know the truth of this issue.
