2014 LEXUS ES 350: Lexus marked the sixth generation of its' popular ES luxury sedan last year, and continues into the 2014 model year with new Intergrated Siri Eyes-Free technology from Apple that is compatible with iPhone 4s and 5 models. The wheelbase had been lengthened by 1.8 inches, while overall length of the vehicle grew by one inch, resulting in shorter overhangs and a more spacious interior. For 2014, the ES 350 gains LED fog lamps and availability of bamboo interior trim, leather-trim and heated/ventilated seats in perforated NuLuxe. The front-wheel drive ES 350 offers five-passenger interior with available semi-aniline leather, as well as a tailored 14.7 cu. ft. trunk, and for the first time, 18-inch high-gloss alloy wheels are on the option list. Power is supplied by an aluminum 3.5 liter V-6 that produces 268 horsepower and comes linked to a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with sequential manual shift feature. The ES 350 presents a Drive Mode Select feature, with Normal, Eco and Sport modes, allowing drivers to customize their experience. Upscale standard equipment includes a sunroof, leather seating and trim appointments, keyless ignition, Bluetooth, satellite radio, USB and iPod inputs. The customer can "layer" luxury in the ES 350 by adding the Ultra Luxury Package, or by selecting from a number of standalone options which include heated and ventilated front seats, Intuitive Park Assist (IPA), backup camera, enormous panoramic glass roof and a Mark Levinson audio system. A unique option is the dual-swivel Lexus Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) that helps illuminate a turn or curve as the driver steers into it. Other technological wonders that are offered include optional blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, lane departure alert and sub-millimeter wave radar pre-collision systems.
