2024 Lexus ES Gets More Tech And An Increased Price But retains Its Engine

Can all the new tech and features in the 2024 Lexus ES justify its new price?

Luxury vehicles have long been one of the more perplexing cars on the market, well, at least to me. While some of them have cool features and constantly sport upgrades, sometimes, the manufacturers add upgrades I consider useless while not upgrading things I consider essential. Does this matter to the wealthy buyers though? Let’s see.


As the Lexus ES enters the 2024 model year, it has no major visual or mechanical updates but it does receive some improvements. The model will land at Lexus dealers around the U.S.A later this year with an increased starting price of USD43,190 (RM201,589), up from USD 42,490 (RM198,322) last year. Will this affect sales?

Moreover, the most important upgrade for the 2024 Lexus ES is the addition of the Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 as standard for all trim levels. This includes pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection, left turn oncoming vehicle detection and braking, adaptive cruise control, lane tracing assist, road sign assist, and more. 

Also standard for the 2024 Lexus ES is the Lexus Interface with features such as an onboard cloud navigation system, dual Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, wireless Apple CarPlay integration, Sirius XM, and others. The Lexus app, in turn, comes with a three-year trial period for remote services for all ES models. 

On top of that, under the hood, the 2024 Lexus ES features no changes. Thus the ES 350 will retain its 3.5-liter V6 making 302hp and 362Nm of torque while the ES 250 also retains its 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, and the ES 300h maintains its 2.5-liter engine paired with the electric motor for a hybrid setup.


As mentioned, the 2024 Lexus ES is expected to land in the Japanese automaker’s showrooms in the U.S.A in the summer of 2023 with prices starting from USD43,190 (RM201,589) and will go up to USD5,480 (RM249,618) for the 300h Ultra Luxury spec. Will buyers be okay with the price hike despite the engine being the same?

We all know that people who can afford luxury cars like Lexus typically don’t really care that a car’s price has increased but all Lexus has done is add some safety features, a new wheel design and more tech and features. Admittedly, safety systems being added is well worth the slight price hike, but why not upgrade the engines as well?

After all, most people who can afford the 2024 Lexus ES would not mind a few extra dollars as long as it comes with a better engine, but at the end of the day, I am sure the automaker knows exactly what they are doing and that the car will continue to be the brand’s best seller in the U.S.A.
