All prices exclude a $1,025 fee for delivery, processing and handling.

The ES will be a great seller for Lexus. Price point is where it should be with this very stylish looking Car.

Well apparently the new ES will get progressive turn signals like we saw in avalon too...just not in the US :pensive:....

See video at time 5:25-5:58

That is indeed good news regarding the pricing - especially for the hybrid, which will be the main version sold here in Europe (do we even get it with other engine choices?).

I hope the professional auto journalist is wrong with his prediction being close to the GS price wise: https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-n...res-of-new-gs-news-specs-prices-on-sale-date/ as it should be considerably cheaper than the GS to compete properly with the A4, etc.

My understanding is that it'll be hybrid-only in most if not all Western European markets. Any non-hybrid ES models will primarily be sold in some Eastern European markets such as Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. Not sure what Turkey and Israel are doing about hybrid vs non-hybrid, but I do know that those also fall under the aegis of Lexus Europe.

Lexus Turkey will only offer the hybrid which won't sell since 2.5 litre engines fall in a higher tax category. Wish they could implement the 2.0 turbo which my RX has on the new ES.

I'm not going to bother posting out on FB where ignorant trolls sit in their Spider Man undies waiting to spit fire from their keyboard, but...

It GALLS me how ignorant these multiple haters are with their tired "overpriced Camry" and "Avalon is cheaper" stupidity.

The ES is not a Camry. It's a Lexus upgrade to an Avalon. Which WE know. Some posting on FB then rants on how the Avalon will "always be cheaper".

In appearance? YES. In design? YES. In plastic everywhere you don't want it to be? YES. The new 75% black plastic catfish mouth Avalon front fascia bears no resemblance to the ES350.

It's a losing battle to engage with these brain dead wastes of space, but as a current (2018) and past (2015, 2013, 2006) ES driver, I love my car and its luxury feel.
It gets attention most everywhere I drive and park it (impossible to ignore Matador Red Mica) and I consistently receive compliments.
Toyota offers nothing close to this color. If I were driving a Camry, nobody would notice outside of driving something so common.
My slanted POV when I see an Avalon XSE or XLE is "you coulda/ shoulda bought the Lexus". And the numbers back my words.

I always thought the ES350 would be perfect with an F Sport variant. And now it's here.

And same goes for pauper can't afford but still type hater comments on FWD. And?!? I had a 2008, 2010, 2012 F Sport, 2014 and 2015 F Sport IS250 and I'd rather have the ES's HP advantage over the IS's RWD.

I've driven the GS350 several times as a loaner and its too big and drivers horrible gas mileage. The proof is in the numbers once again. Japan thought so much of the ES that they redesigned it and added an F Sport variant. NOBODY is talking about killing the ES. GS? Nothing official but the rumors of its demise persist and Lexus isn't doing much to dispel them.

I'm not 60, I'm not in a nursing home, I've driven MB E350, Audi A6 for extended periods of time and I always come back to Lexus.

They get "it" and "it" is what I pay for every month. There's not a damn thing wrong with the ES. It's the backbone of Lexus car sales for a reason.

In fairness, the new Camry's pretty nice too, and it's been destroying the Accord on sales. It's just not a Lexus.

I drove the 2019 ES F-Sport and ESh last week and they're fantastic. The Apple Carplay and Amazon Alexa integration works flawlessly and the driving dynamics of the F-Sport are phenomenal. It truly doesn't feel like a FWD vehicle through a high-speed slalom.

I was told that the vehicles I drove were early prototypes, so the Ultra Luxury vehicle I drove had a pano roof and Levinson, but no manual side rear window shades or front passenger memory seats. The only thing I didn't like about the new ES was that the large cupholder on the driver's side of the center console doesn't have a lid, so it's always open. It doesn't look premium. Other than that, the fit and finish overall is fantastic. It's an awesome vehicle.
