According to the latest car news, engine types for this special vehicle haven’t been finalized yet, at least to the customers. Lexus ES 2019 is more likely to run on 3.5L V6 but there might be some modifications for Philippine version while the company asserts the ES can reach 355 Nm of torque and 300 PS. It can also switch back and forth via its automatic gearbox of 8-speed direct shift.

Besides the said sedan, we also expect the introduction of a hybrid Lexus ES 300h which is powered by a hybrid 2.5L inline-four engine, getting 2015 PS as total output. This variant can save a lot of fuel with impressive figure of 17 km per liter tested in mixed driving environments.

Speaking of the next-iteration Lexus ES 2019's styling design, the sedan possesses a bolder look with “waterfall” effect made of seemingly running vertical slats in front. The unique L-Finesse spindle grill proudly presents the company’s motto in design, lifting Lexus to a whole new level in car deco.

Finally, the perfect roofline highlighting the lower stance with chiseled lines covering entire rear fascia have shifted Lexus ES far away from its traditional form. The only question remains is about the price tag for Philippines market of this new comer.
