It will ride on the company’s new, versatile platform and it will get a completely new chassis. Besides significant mechanical improvements, we will also see a completely new styling and interior design, which will come with even more refinement and luxury. We expect that the new 2019 ES 350 will arrive and go on sale somewhere in the second half of next year.
