Lexus ES 350 Models and ES 350 History

In 2007, Lexus launched the completely redesigned ES 350, boasting more power, a more spacious interior and a slew of luxury amenities. The 2008 ES 350 got some minor changes that included trimmed side-view mirrors and updated interior lights. No major changes were made to the 2009 ES 350. In 2010, rear-side airbags were added and an optional safety system was offered, called the "Lexus Enform and Safety Connect. In 2011, Lexus recalibrated the engine on the ES 350 so that it could run on standard octane gas. The 2012 ES 350 remained unchanged from the previous year. In 2013, Lexus revealed the newly redesigned ES 350, piggybacking it with a new hybrid model called the ES 300h. The 2014 ES 350 offered HID headlamps and LED foglights as standard equipment. The carmaker also offered new options that included NuLuxe leatherette upholstery, ventilated seating, wood interior trim options and a new Display Audio package that could integrate with iPhones.
