Model Preview

The Lexus LX last arrived as a fully-redesigned model in 2008, giving the automaker a more modern large SUV. Despite the SUV entering its 15th model year on sale, we expect the 2022 Lexus LX to be a carryover model.

When Lexus introduced the LX in 2016, the large SUV arrived with an updated exterior design that has carried into the 2021 model year. As a carryover model, we expect the 2022 Lexus LX to share the same design as the current model. The LX has larger-than-life elements, like the enormous grille and massive hood. The squared-off, brick-like design of the LX is a sharp contrast to the curvier large SUVs on sale. At the back, the current LX has simple taillights, an upright rear liftgate, and a hidden exhaust outlet.

On the inside, the current LX has a straightforward design that struggles to hide the SUV’s age. The expansive center console has physical buttons and dials, but they’re small and hard to use. A central analog clock on the center console separates the infotainment screen from the lower controls for the HVAC and audio systems. Because of the LX’s square design, the SUV offers clear sightlines out of the vehicle for the driver. The 2022 Lexus LX will have the same interior design as the current model.

Lexus fits the current LX with a 12.3-inch display, Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa, voice recognition, a nine-speaker audio system, navigation, and satellite radio as standard. Optional features include a wireless smartphone charger, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a Mark Levinson audio system. We expect the LX’s tech features to carry over unchanged into the 2022 model year.

A 5.7-liter V8 engine is the only available motor for the current LX. As a carryover model, the 2022 LX will come with the same engine. Power is rated at 383 horsepower, while the engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The LX comes with a full-time four-wheel-drive system as standard.

Every LX comes with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, a surround-view camera, rear cross traffic alert, parking sensors, and a multi-terrain view monitor as standard equipment. A head-up display is the only optional feature. Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash-tested the current LX yet. These safety features are expected to remain the same for the 2022 Lexus LX.

Pricing & Release Date

Official information on when the 2022 Lexus LX will be introduced isn’t available yet. Based on previous years, we expect the SUV to arrive in fall 2021.

Pricing for the 2022 Lexus LX also remains unclear. Without any expected changes, the 2022 model should remain close to the current SUV’s range of $88,025 to $93,025 with destination.

This large SUV will compete with the BMW X7, Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and Land Rover Range Rover.
