Vehicle Profile: 2022 Lexus LX
Meet the next generation of this flagship SUV
The all-new Lexus LX has been fully redesigned from the ground up. This full-size luxury model rides on a reengineered body-on-frame platform, providing a smooth and confident ride. From its bold new exterior and its updated powertrain to its revamped cabin and updated amenities, the Lexus LX is designed to impress the most discerning drivers.
You can now pick from five trim levels on the Lexus LX. These are Standard, Premium, and Luxury, as well as two new options, F SPORT and Ultra Luxury.
Powertrain and performance
The latest Lexus LX boasts a brand-new turbocharged V6 engine that cranks out 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, channeled through a responsive 10-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission. The LX harnesses this power to deliver an 8,000-pound towing capacity, so you’ll have enough muscle to bring a camper along for your next family getaway. And to help you drive confidently, this advanced SUV comes with a Torsen® torque-sensing limited-slip center differential, four-wheel Active Traction Control, and Trailer Sway Control. And thanks to the new Multi-Terrain Select system, you can conquer difficult driving conditions.
For the most recent model year, the Lexus LX boasts a fully revamped interior — complete with additional luxuries and a more ergonomic design. In addition to seating up to seven passengers, the LX can accommodate up to 71 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats properly configured. Set the mood with available Thematic Ambient Illumination, and enjoy the upscale vibe lent by genuine wood, metal, and leather accents. Indulge yourself and your passengers with heated and ventilated seats in both the first and second row, as well as a heated leather-trimmed steering wheel to take the sting out of those chilly morning drives. Upgrade to the brand-new LX ULTRA LUXURY trim to transform the backseat into a home away from home. This trim treats backseat passengers to reclining massaging seats, a power ottoman, and a center desk that can serve as a workspace.
Advanced multimedia connectivity
When it comes to advanced tech tools, the Lexus LX has everything you need — whether you’re driving yourself around town or you’re an executive who prefers to have someone else take the wheel. Every trim comes equipped with in-vehicle Wi-Fi®, wireless smartphone connectivity, and a stunning Lexus Interface with a 12.3-inch touch-screen display. This high-tech SUV even includes Drive Connect capability, complete with built-in Cloud Navigation and Google points-of-interest data for finding fun spots. Other handy tech tools include Hey Lexus voice commands and Destination Assist to help you take the hassle out of finding your way.
For entertainment on the go, the Lexus LX offers the Mark Levinson® 25-speaker Reference Surround Sound System, as well as a Rear-Seat Entertainment System with dual 11.4-inch screens. It even boasts a standard wireless charging unit up front, along with an available rear-seat wireless charger for backseat passengers.
Smart Safety technology
Every model of the Lexus LX is designed to keep you and your passengers safe on the go. It boasts the Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, which includes essentials like Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, and Road Sign Assist. Its other standard safety tools include innovations that cost extra on other models, such as Intuitive Parking Assist, a Panoramic View Monitor, and a Blind Spot Monitor.
