2013 Lexus ES 350 Overview

Lexus’ engineers decided to retool the ES 350 for 2013, giving the midsize sedan more length, a wider wheelbase and minor cosmetic changes, marking the first revisions to the ES 350 since its debut in 2007.

The 2013 Lexus ES 350, which is available in a single, front-wheel-drive, gasoline-powered trim, continues to be powered by a 3.5-liter, 24-valve, DOHC V6 engine that makes 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. The ES 350, which comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission, gives the driver the option of three driving modes—Normal, Sport or Eco—to choose from, which determines the amount of power supplied and controls the fuel efficiency of the sedan. Speaking of fuel economy, the ES 350 is rated to achieve 19 mpg city/27 highway.

In addition to widening and lengthening the 2013 ES 350, the designers at Lexus have also made some changes to the exterior, such as adding a trunk-lid spoiler and revising both the rear bumper (removing the existing dual exhaust covers) and the front grille. Interior upgrades include a new standard imitation leather for the seating surfaces and additional insulation for improved acoustics. The dimensional changes have resulted in additional legroom for rear-seat passengers.

Standard equipment for the 2013 Lexus ES 350 sedan includes dual-zone climate control, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, power tilt-and-slide moonroof, 10-way driver’s and front passenger power seats with power lumbar, dual-swivel adaptive front lighting system, 8-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo with Sirius XM satellite radio and Bluetooth hands-free accessibility, and 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels with all-season tires.

Safety features for the 2013 Lexus ES 350 include 10 airbags, 4-wheel antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and emergency braking assist, stability control, traction control and a tire pressure monitoring system.

The 2013 ES 350, which faces competition in the midsize sedan market from the Acura TL, Hyundai Azera and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, will debut on dealer showroom floors in late summer or early fall.
