The Premium Package retails for $49,250 and adds a 12.3” display screen, Navigation, a heated steering wheel, a driver’s seat memory system, and many safety features such as Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Intelligent Clearance Sonar with Rear Cross-Traffic Brake. Finally, for $49,750, the AWD F Sport Series 1 includes 19-inch wheels, a sport appearance package, and more.

The new 2021 Lexus ES 350 Black Line Edition sits near the top of the ES’ lineup and is priced from $57,700. This limited production sedan enhances the $56,400 F SPORT Series 2 edition with unique touches such as black 19” alloy F SPORT wheels, black mirrors, and rear spoiler, plus an exclusive interior in white with unique trim. The Series 2 ($56,400) features an Adaptive Variable Suspension system, 19-inch wheels, and an F SPORT appearance package with lip spoiler.
