The Next Generation of ES Has Arrived At Lexus of Las Vegas
A Product of Mastery

The look, feel and sound of Lexus craftsmanship
Lexus team members at the company’s U.S. facility  spent more than 150,000 hours training to build the 2019 Lexus ES model that delivers a fundamentally higher level of performance than its predecessors. That includes sensory training that teaches assemblers, for instance, to feel for an abnormality as minute as a thread of hair.  
 
“After extensive sensory training, our team members rely on sight, sound and touch to know that the craftsmanship of the car is of the highest standard,” said Mike Bridge, Lexus assistant general manager. “A machine can’t make those judgments, and that’s why we take so much time to train before a new model goes into production.”
 
Bridge said an example of this sensory training can be seen in body weld, where team members are taught to feel gap differences measured in fractions as little as 0.3 millimeters.  “This is equal to the thickness of three sheets of paper and can be felt even with gloves on,” he said.
 
Lexus began production of the ES in Kentucky in 2015 after investing more than $360 million in a new production facility on the Toyota Kentucky campus. In addition to the ES 350, the Lexus team of more than 800 Lexus-trained Kentuckians will now also build the all-new, coveted F SPORT model.
 
Quality in, quality out
In 2016, after just one year of production, the Lexus line received the Platinum award – a tie with Toyota’s Kyushu 2 plant in Japan – in the J.D. Power & Associates’ Initial Quality Study, representing the highest-performing assembly plant in the world for initial quality. The Kentucky Lexus plant has been among the highest J.D. Power rankings every year since.
 
At a recent internal event, Toyota North America CEO, Jim Lentz presented the Lexus line with its third consecutive J.D. Power honor, a Gold award.
 
“Because of the team we have here in Georgetown, and all that has been accomplished in just three years since initially launching Lexus,” said Lentz, “we’re confident our Lexus customers will Experience Amazing each time they get behind the wheel of a Kentucky-assembled ES.”
 
Features and Pricing
The seventh-generation, driver-centric ES maintains the comfort, quietness and spacious attributes, while adding sharpened performance and class-leading active safety technology.
 
The 2019 ES 350 includes the following new features:

  • Eight-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission that more efficiently transfers power to the wheels;
