The Lexus ES 350 Horsepower Doesn’t Compare to the 2014 Acura TL

October 17th, 2013 by

Though we know that horsepower isn’t all you’re looking for in a luxury car like the Lexus ES 350, it never hurts, does it?

The 2014 Acura TL is available now at Chicagoland Acura Dealers and, in addition to besting the Lexus in many ways, it offers more horsepower than the competing luxury sedan.

Let’s see just how these two models stand up against each other.

Get Power and Performance in an Acura

As we said, there are many reasons why drivers choose a luxury sedan, but we haven’t yet heard a driver tell us they wish their vehicle was less powerful. The 2014 Acura TL carries a 3.5L V6 engine rated at 280 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. It’s an impressive machine underneath the hood.

The Lexus ES 350 has a 3.5L V6 as well, but for some reason, it doesn’t offer as much power, yielding only 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. This, of course, is not even looking at the 2014 TL SH-AWD, which features a slightly more powerful 3.7L V6 engine.

That said, we know power isn’t everything. Take a look at these other features you’ll enjoy in a TL that you won’t find in the ES 350:

  • Memory adjustable driver side equipment
  • Leather-trimmed seating
  • Standard heated front seats
  • High intensity discharge headlights

Now it would not surprise us if you could add these on to the ES 350 or if there were a package upgrade that included some or all of these features, but they come standard on the 2014 TL—no additional cost.
