I don't think much in the way of changes is expected until the 2016 model.

"Lexus did a complete redesign of its ES in 2013. So, there are only a few observable changes in the 2015 Lexus ES 350. One of the notable changes in the car is the replacement of stodgy bulb lamps with LED fog lights. There is also the introduction of the heating and cooling seat systems. The equipment roster now comes with the Apple’s Siri Eyes Free technology."

The LED fog lights came out in 2014

Is the seat heating and cooling system you mention different from the 2013/14?

It could be the AUTO heat/cool feature they added to the GS in 2014 that comes from the LS...

I would guess that one of two likely possibilities is the case. Either the 2015 ES will have the option of heated and cooled seats in addition to or in place of the option of heated and ventilated seats available on 2013 and 2014 ES vehicles, or the author of the article is not very well informed about the ES and changes in the ES from 2014 to 2015. Considering that he/she didn't seem to realize that the 2014 ES already had the LED fog lights and already came with Siri Eyes Free, my guess would be that author of the article just does not actually know much about the 2013-2014 ES or about any changes, including whether cooled or just ventilated seats will be available, that will be apply to the 2015 vehicles.

It would be nice if they ported over the cooled seats vs. the ventilated seats as a 2015 upgrade.

I don't think any Lexus has actual cooled seats other than the LS. Does the LS even?

I apologize for that comment. It seemed to make sense but is apparently incorrect info.

This link gives more accurate if little information... http://blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2014/07/2015-lexus-es-350-lexus-300h-whats-changed.html

Basically the multimedia system will be updated to be more similar to the one on the IS.
