2021 Lexus ES Sedan Style and Chassis Updates Car News

An updated version of Lexus’ ES executive sedan will go on sale later this year, promising improved refinement and dynamic performance.

As was the case with the flagship LS last year, the changes to the ES are subtle and focus more on the chassis and tech upgrades than on obvious design revisions.

“The ES is a model renowned for its quiet, smooth performance and high levels of comfort and cabin space,” said Lexus. “The upcoming changes focus on strengthening these qualities, refreshing the car’s styling, improving handling and responsiveness, and introducing new technology-based equipment features.”

Chief among the revisions is a stiffer rear suspension setup, which is said to allow for a “more linear” response to steering inputs. A redesigned brake pedal and readjustment measures aim to reduce vibration while increasing feedback, and the electronic brake management system has been adjusted to give better control.

The performance-oriented F Sport model benefits from a new suspension actuator which is supposed to improve ride comfort by expanding the range of damping force on offer.

Elsewhere, the sedan benefits from the latest iteration of Lexus’ “ rocket ” grille, the headlights have been subtly redesigned, and a range of new designs and colors are available for the alloy wheels, offered in 17-inch, 18-inch and 19 inch.

Following on from the LS and RX flagships, the ES will also receive Lexus’ advanced adaptive “Bladescan” LED headlights, which would provide a wider light field and better control.

UK pricing and full specification details will be announced in the coming months.
