Is the Lexus ES 350 AWD?

After getting a promotion at my job, I’m going to celebrate by getting a luxury sedan. I have an eye on the Lexus ES 350, but before I do more thorough research, I want to know if it offers AWD. Does the Lexus ES 350 have AWD?

Lexus ES 350
does not offer AWD on current models. If you want a Lexus ES 350 with AWD, opt for used models made in 2019 or before. AWD was available on these, but Lexus discontinued the option in 2020.
If you want to get a similar style, the
Lexus ES 250
might suit you. This car has standard AWD. The only difference is what’s under the hood. While the ES 350 boasts a 302-hp, 3.5-liter V6, the ES 250 has a much smaller 203-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
But what the ES 250 lacks in power, it makes up for with fuel economy. The ES 250 gets 34 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city while the ES 350 offers 31 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city.
