Lexus debuted the 2019 ES back in April at the Beijing Auto Show, highlighting its new global architecture-K platform being used in the ES 350. While we knew the 2019 ES goes on sale next month, and before the sedan arrives at dealerships, the automaker has now released pricing and fuel economy information.

The entry-level Lexus ES 350 starts at $39,500 – all pricing excludes the $1,025 fee for delivery, processing, and handling. That’s a $550 increase over the 2018 model. The ES 350 comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine under the hood producing 302 horsepower and 276 pound-feet of torque. Even with an increase in power – 19 hp and 34 lb-ft of torque over the 2018 models – the ES has an EPA-rated fuel economy of 22 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 26 mpg combined. That’s a two-mpg increase in combined fuel economy. An eight-speed automatic transmission controls the power going on the front wheel drive auto.

Lexus also announced the fuel economy for the ES 350h hybrid. The sedan returns 43 mpg city, 45 mpg highway, and 44 mpg combined. Lexus calls it “the most fuel-efficient luxury vehicle without a plug.” The car uses an Atkinson cycle 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing a combined output of 215 hp. The ES 350h sees a $510 decrease in price compared to its predecessor, starting at $41,310.

New for 2019 is the ES 350 F Sport. The sedan receives a retuned suspension, it own interior trim, along with 19-inch wheels and tires. Sadly this there isn’t more power, there is added styling, which makes it cost more the standard ES 350. The F Sport starts at $44,035. It sports an 22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 25 mpg in combined driving.

The 2019 Lexus ES begins arriving at dealerships in September.
