What’s new in the 2024 Lexus ES?

For the 2024 model year, the Lexus ES is debuting with a new available Technology Package and 18-inch wheels with a Vapor Chrome finish that comes standard for the Ultra Luxury grade.

Platform

The 2024 Lexus ES rides on the Global Architecture-K (GA-K) platform, an exceptionally rigid front-wheel drive chassis made from several grades of high-strength steel. Laser Screw Welding, a construction method shared with the LS sedan and RZ battery-electric vehicle, makes for a truly robust structure. A strut tower brace, multiple reinforcement panels for the strut towers themselves, and radiator support braces are also used to enhance front-end stiffness.

The platform of the new Lexus ES

Lexus tuned the suspension for an ideal responsiveness. On the front is a strut angle that aligns at the ideal angle to improve ride quality. The Dynamic Control Shocks are capable of responding to even the smallest movements thanks to a non-overlapping auxiliary valve that allows damper oil to flow in either direction before entering the main valve. A trailing rear arm and a multilink setup are utilized at the rear suspension for improved responsiveness of the Dynamic Control Shocks.

Engines, performance, and fuel consumption

Standard on the 2024 Lexus ES 350 is the 3.5-liter V6 engine which is designed to deliver responsive acceleration along with impressive efficiency. The V6 engine features the D-4S fuel injection system, which used high-pressure injectors to deliver fuel directly into the combustion chamber along with a low-pressure system that delivers fuel to the intake ports. Together with the addition of Variable Valve Timing-intelligence Wide (VVT-iW) for the intake valves, the engine is capable of operating on either the traditional Otto cycle during sporty driving or the more efficient Atkinson cycle when power demand is low.

Engines, performance, and fuel consumption

 The 3.5-Liter V6 engine generates 302 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 267 lb-ft of torque at 4,700 rpm with an EPA-estimated MPG rating of 22/32/26 (city/highway/combined). The engine is mated to an 8-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission for improved efficiency.

The 20204 Lexus ES 250 AWD comes standard with the 2.5-Liter L4 engine which sends torque to all four wheels. Effective traction for inclement and slippery weather while minimizing AWD’s typical drag on fuel economy is brought about by the Dynamic Torque Control AWD.

In a situation where the AWD isn’t needed, the electromagnetically controlled coupling on the rear axle disengages the propeller shaft to help prioritize fuel efficiency.

 For the 2024 model year, the ES 300h features a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder gas engine running on the Atkinson cycle which is coupled with a smaller, more power-dense electric motor and a hybrid transaxle. The combined system power output is 215 horsepower and an EPA-estimated MPG rating of 43/44/44 (city/highway/combined). Power is delivered the electric from a lithium-ion battery strategically located underneath the back seat to free up trunk space, as well as improve the front-to-rear weight distribution for better handling.

2024 Lexus ES F SPORT

The F SPORT Design is offered on all three powertrains ((ES 350, ES 250 AWD, and ES 300h)). F SPORT grades feature 19-inch split five-spoke alloy wheels with a Gloss Black finish and F SPORT exterior styling, including a unique front bumper, grille surround, and rear spoiler. Intuitive Parking Assist is standard across all F SPORT grades, while the Mark Levinson sound system, power rear sunshade, panorama roof, triple beam LED headlamps, and power trunk with kick sensor are available as an option.

Safety and Convenience

The 2024 ES comes standard with Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, which brings a suite of key active safety and convenience features to the vehicle. This system includes:

  • Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection – Designed to help detect a vehicle, pedestrian, or cyclist and provide an audio/visual forward collision warning under certain circumstances. If the driver does not react, the system is designed to provide automatic emergency braking at speeds between approximately 7-110 mph. PCS uses a camera and millimeter-wave radar for enhanced performance and reliability.
    1. Risk Avoidance Emergency Steer Assist – helps support collision avoidance with certain detectable objects within the lane by applying gentle braking and steering operation in response to the driver’s inputs under certain daytime conditions.
    1. Left Turn Oncoming Vehicle Detection/Braking – designed to provide a warning and automatic braking if the system determines a driver is turning left in front of an oncoming vehicle in certain daytime conditions.
  • All-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) – An adaptive cruise control system intended for highway use that uses radar and camera technology to help keep the vehicle at a preset speed and distance from vehicles ahead, even in stop-and-go traffic. If the system detects the vehicle getting closer than the preset distance, it is designed to automatically slow the vehicle — even to a complete stop. At highway speeds, when the road ahead clears, the vehicle returns to its preset speed.
  • Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) – When DRCC is enabled and lane markers are detected, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) uses the lines on the road and/or preceding vehicles to provide active driving assistance and help keep the vehicle centered in its lane.
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) – When white/yellow lane markings or certain road edge boundary lines are detected at speeds above 32 mph, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) is designed to issue an audio/visual lane departure warning if an inadvertent lane departure is detected. If the driver does not take corrective action, the system is also designed to provide gentle corrective steering for lane-keeping assistance.
  • Road Sign Assist (RSA) – Using an intelligent camera, Road Sign Assist (RSA) is designed to detect speed limit signs, stop signs, Do Not Enter signs, yield signs, and certain warning signs, and display an icon of the sign on the Multi-Information Display (MID).

Connectivity and Lexus Interface

All 2024 Lexus ES are equipped with Lexus Interface which allows drivers to access a wide range of enhanced connectivity and convenience features, including Over-the-Air (OTA) updates.

Users can interact with the system through intuitive touch and voice activation controls. An active Drive Connect with three years trial gives the drivers and passengers unlimited access to intelligent Assistant, Cloud Navigation, and Destination Assist.

Destination Assist also gives access to 24/7 live agent assistance to locate the next destination.

Lexus Interface also allows for dual Bluetooth® phone connectivity, with support for standard wireless Apple CarPlay® integration and Android Auto™ compatibility. With further connectivity, the ES has a standard Wi-Fi Connect3 one-month trial with 4G availability for up to five devices – turning the vehicle into an AT&T Hotspot.
