2021 Lexus ES Review
When the 2021 Lexus ES made its debut 30 years ago, its tag line was, “The pursuit of perfection.” Since then, the carmaker has kept its word by crafting elegant midsized sedans that offer the perfect combination of luxury and sportiness. This model continues that streak, and a smooth, serene riding experience awaits anyone who decides to slide behind the wheel.
This sleekly designed model has a striking appearance that would look amazing in the garage of any car shopper around the Larchmont, New Rochelle, and Yonkers, NY, areas.

Schedule a test drive today.
The Lexus ES offers different powerful engines, and each has its unique benefits. The first (and standard) is a 2.5L engine that produces 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain contains an 8-speed automatic transmission and a new inline 4-cylinder that helps the car maintain an efficient EPA-estimated 25 city MPG/34 highway MPG.1
Next is a punchy 3.5L V6 engine that churns out 302 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of gritty torque muscle. The V6 engine hits 0 to 60 in a breathtaking 6.6 seconds. It also showcases dual Variable Valve Timing, a unique intelligence feature that creates extra torque when the car moves slower and provides more horsepower when it’s moving faster.
All-wheel drive capability was never available on the Lexus ES—until now. For the first time ever, this feature is offered to those who want a little extra grip on the asphalt. Paired with the 2.5L engine, it emphasizes traction, supplying both the front and rear wheels with torque depending on the surface you’re riding on. This means you’ll have more control over thick patches of ice and roads with rougher terrain.
State of the Art Interior & Technology
While your Lexus ES is busy commanding the road, you will be able to enjoy the ride to the fullest extent in terms of both comfort and technology.
Front seat passengers will enjoy 42.4 inches of cushy legroom. Backseat passengers will have 39.2 inches of legroom, so they’ll also have plenty of room to stretch out. The available heated wood- and leather-trimmed steering wheel is a huge asset on freezing winter days, and so is the available fast-response interior heater.
Lexus continues to push the envelope when it comes to technology by making the world’s first available Mark Levinson® 17-speaker, 1,800-watt PurePlay Premium Surround Sound Audio System a feature in the Lexus ES. This optional auditory gadget brings soundstage technology into your car by placing speakers higher in the cabin. This reduces noise reflections and accentuates the tonal inflections, creating a more enjoyable listening experience.
There are plenty of other technological highlights that either come standard or are available with the Lexus ES, including:
- Amazon Alexa Compatibility: Lets you use your voice to access an endless number of functions, like streaming music or checking the weather or news updates.
- Panoramic View Monitor: Gives you a bird’s-eye view of surroundings, assisting with parking in tight spaces.
- Grandiose 12.3-inch high-resolution multimedia touchscreen: This available feature allows you to adjust volume and climate controls easily.
