Ackerman Toyota, home of a wide selection of new and used Toyota hybrid cars in O’Fallon is pleased to announce that arrival of the all-new 2013 ES 350 and ES 300h, the 6th generation of the Lexus luxury sedan since its original introduction which was over 2 decades ago.
With a progressive new design the new Lexus Hybrid Drive ES still has the traditional spindle grille and enhanced new styling and handling.
“Since its introduction in 1989, the ES has been the benchmark luxury sedan for quality, reliability, ride comfort and value,” said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “The new ES 350 and the first ever ES hybrid raise the bar once again.”
The new Lexus Hybrid Drive will offer a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engine with Atkinson cycle and the ES 300h will deliver an estimated 40 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway with a total of 200 hp.
According to toyotapress.com; “The ES 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with Dual VVT-i that delivers 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 248 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,700. The six-speed sequential-shift automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) provides enhanced driving performance, fuel efficiency and smooth shifts. Low friction materials further improve efficiency and help with the ES 350‘s EPA-fuel economy estimates of 21 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined.”
The ES 350 and the 300h all have Drive Mode selector. Steering responsiveness and power are increased by the sport mode, and normal mode improves performance and fuel efficiency. Electronic Vehicle mode allows for short drives at lower speeds using on the battery power in the ES 300h model.
Suspension changes, a stiffer body and a quicker steering gear ratio deliver more precise handling in the new 2013 Lexus ES.
