1994 Lexus ES 300 Overview

The Lexus ES 300 is the second generation of the Japanese automaker's entry-level luxury sedan. The Camry-based ES offered a more affordable option than the flagship LS 400 or the new SC series sports coupes. For 1994, a passenger-side airbag and several creature comforts were added as standard equipment. The ES also received a slight power bump.
The new aluminum block engine still displaced 3.0 liters, but the redesign had increased horsepower to 188. Torque also jumped from 195 to 203 pound-feet. Improvements in performance were marginal, but drivers frequently cheered the ES's acceleration through the higher gears, providing plenty of confidence for passing and merging on busy highways. While some saw the FWD layout as a liability for a sports sedan, others found that it provided more assurance on slick surfaces. The ES suspension was also stiffened for a more sporty ride.
Even by 1994, the ES 300 base model was still considered pretty stripped down. However, finding a true Base model is quite a challenge, as almost all ESs seem to have leather, power features, moonroofs, advanced climate control, and premium sound systems. The Lexus still retained much of Toyota's interior layout and controls, which led to many owners seeking a more polished cabin. However, each year more and more seemed to be setting the ES apart from the Camry. In 1995, the sedan would again undergo some styling changes and feature upgrades.
