A Speedy Hybrid? See what Lexus is preparing for 2019
Hybrid vehicles are an outstanding choice for anyone who's looking to save some serious cash at the gas pump or do their part for the environment by cutting down on emissions. In fact, if there is one thing that hybrids are known for its their outstanding fuel efficiency. The only problem is that most gasoline-electric hybrid engines tend to be far less powerful than their gasoline-only counterparts, which means a hybrid just usually isn't the right choice for anyone more concerned with speed, power and performance. Nonetheless, Lexus is looking to change this, and the announcement of the new 2019 Lexus ES Hybrid definitely has people standing up and taking notice. With this in mind, here's what you need to know about the fast, powerful, all-new 2019 Lexus ES Hybrid.

Lexus utilizes the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform as the basis for the 2019 Lexus ES. Inside, we discover a large 12.3" central screen, and an imposing instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. Remember, different equipment will be offered as standard or optional depending on the finish.
Also, Lexus has not one but two similar-sized automobiles: the GS which is also very successful and the ES, only distributed in North America and Asia. If the arrival of the ES sedan is profitable, it could mean the end of the career for the GS. This entirely new car aims to radically transform the concept of comfort for luxury consumers around the world, says Lexus.

If you recently purchased your first new vehicle, you probably are learning a lot about the ongoing maintenance that is needed for your vehicle. This maintenance is imperative if you want to protect your car. Some things you can do on your own. It is easy to top off windshield wiper fluid and check the level of your oil. The more difficult tasks should be done by a professional. This includes things like tire rotations, alignments and oil changes. If you are wondering how often you should get your oil changed, there isn't really a definitive answer. The number of miles or months that you can let pass by, varies from vehicle to vehicle. Some vehicles will need an oil change once every 3,000 miles. There are more modern vehicles that can go up to 15,000 miles in between oil changes....
