The forthcoming 2022 Lexus LX is getting further updates. The 2021 model arrived with numerous upgrades. That includes the Sport Package, new exterior paints, new wheels, and a new interior color scheme. Now, the 2022 LX will gain further upgrades. The LX variant is one of a few luxury crossover-SUVs that can tackle off-road trails.
However, this model is very premium and it comes with sophisticated character rather than wild DNA. This model shares a lot of components with Toyota Land Cruiser, including the platform. Under the hood, potent V8 provides more than solid performances. Lastly, the interior is full of luxury and it provides amazing comfort.
Lexus LX Redesign
The forthcoming 2022 Lexus LX continues with serious updates. That includes exterior redesign so we should expect a lot of novelties. However, the current platform remains, so the vehicle’s dimensions will be unchanged as well. Lexus will deliver more lightweight materials and styling is completely new.
The LX SUV comes with a new spindle grille that looks even more stylish. Some styling cues are taken from the LC car but LX SUV remains as robust as before. We are waiting for more details from Lexus, but the LX model will surely gain new headlights, taillights, and wheels.
The interior will gain even more updates. New 2022 Lexus LX will get smarter arrangement inside the cabin so the interior room will be better. The third-row will be optional once again but rear occupants will surely get more ample legroom. We don’t know if the cargo space will be improved, but it is a possibility.
Besides that, the new interior will get a redesigned dashboard. Some buttons are removed so most of the controls are now operated via a large touchscreen. The build quality is quite impressive and the level of luxury is high, as before. New upholstery has been introduced in the current model. That means the 2022 LX SUV will offer the same upholstery, but new driver-assistance aids are a must.
New Engine Possibly a Hybrid
A new powertrain option is a possibility. However, this is just speculation at the moment. The 2022 Lexus LX will use the same 5.7-liter V8 gasoline with 383 horsepower. This engine is far from quiet and LX sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. While it provides enough power, this unit is far from perfect. Rivals such as Mercedes are offering better and quicker variants.
Because of the loud engine, you just can’t sit back and relax, despite a high level of comfort. Lastly, LX manages only 18 mpg on the highway, which is another issue. Luckily, the new rumored engine is a hybrid powertrain. If that truly happens, LX Hybrid will deliver improved fuel efficiency and it will generate almost 450 horsepower.
2022 Lexus LX Release Date and Price
This SUV will now cost closer to $90,000. This is the price of the two-row 2022 Lexus LX, while the third-row is optional and it cost an additional $5,000. The sales will begin at some point in 2021, most likely in the second half of the year.
