First introduced in 1989, the Lexus ES has long stood as a venerable mid-size sedan with all the offerings and edge of a luxury car. Now in its seventh generation, the 2020 Lexus ES arrives with a newly revamped design and features heightened style and performance with the brand’s signature F Sport trim. But there’s more to the 2020 Lexus ES than a pretty face, and we’d be remiss not to delve into the details of this new model’s features.
Packing a 3.5-liter V6 engine, the 2020 Lexus ES produces 302 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, both vastly improved over the previous generation’s performance. Applied through a front-wheel-drive configuration, this power is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission for smooth and efficient shifting performance.
Previously available on other Lexus models, F Sport style and performance finally make their way to the Lexus ES. The F Sport trim adds mechanical enhancements like Adaptive Variable Suspension and signature stylings like upper and lower grill inserts and foam-injected seats. For maximum responsiveness and control, the exclusive Sport S+ driving mode adjusts the vehicle’s handling for a drive inspired by the LFA supercar.
Newly redesigned for the previous model year, the interior of the 2020 Lexus features a comprehensive suite of comfort, safety and technology. Interior luxuries include leatherette upholstery, 10-way adjustable power seats and power moonroof. The 8-inch infotainment system allows easy access to Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration, and standard Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 provides effortless driver safety and assistance.
