2022 LX and first-ever NX Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle usher new era of design and technology
LOS ANGELES (Nov. 16, 2021) – Lexus is bringing style, technology and efficiency to the City of Angels, showcasing its full lineup of luxury vehicles at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, including the all-new 2022 Lexus LX 600 and 2022 Lexus NX. Guests can explore the roster of Lexus luxury sedans, SUVs, hybrids, performance cars and accessories at the Los Angeles Convention Center Nov. 19-28.
Scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealers in the beginning of 2022, guests will have the chance to see the totally redesigned from the ground up, all-new 2022 LX 600. The LX 600 stands as the brand’s ultimate sport-utility flagship and brings unparalleled capability, luxury and human-centered technology to the diversified model portfolio. With an all-new 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine, the LX 600 offers seamless power and efficiency. The full-size luxury SUV, with its newly reengineered body-on-frame platform, avant-garde style and luxurious cabin, embodies Lexus’ commitment to meeting the diversifying needs and lifestyles of customers.
Lexus will showcase the first-ever Lexus LX Ultra Luxury and Lexus LX F SPORT grades in Los Angeles, which are two of five grades available. The Lexus-first four-seat Ultra Luxury grade enhances the LX lineup with special attention paid to the rear passenger space and their experience. Guests preferring a sportier look and feel can check out the first-ever F SPORT grade – with its unique design touches and handling.
Guests of the auto show can also see the all-new 2022 Lexus NX, which boasts an entirely new platform making it longer, wider and taller for more passenger and cargo space. Taking performance further, the new NX features powerful turbo and sporty hybrid powertrains. Proving there’s an NX for every driver, its four new powertrains include a new 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine and the first-ever Lexus plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the NX 450h+, with an EPA-estimated 36-mile range on electric power. The 2022 NX delivers a long list of Lexus firsts, including next-generation Lexus Safety System+ 3.0 technology and Digital Latch with Safe Exit Assist to alert the driver and passengers to avoid the risk of accidental door contact with vehicles or cyclists.
New for 2022, the North American-developed Lexus Interface multimedia system allows the LX and NX to seamlessly integrate and navigate life’s twists and turns. Incorporating a new Voice Assistant designed with voice recognition with natural language understanding, the system aims to provide a natural and easy to use interaction for the vehicle occupants. The available cloud-navigation with Google Points of Interest (POI), is integrated to ensure up-to-date search capability. The system also offers wireless Apple Car Play® and Android Auto™, and with the ubiquitous use of smart phones, an intuitive and simple guest experience is now possible. With the Lexus Interface User Profile feature, the driver’s personalized settings such as screen mode and preferences such as audio favorites, can be retained in the cloud and accessible on the go in other Lexus Interface equipped vehicles.
The Lexus booth will feature a Lexus Interface simulator, allowing guests to engage in the features of the all-new elegant, intuitive connected multimedia system. Auto show attendees can also take part in the Mark Levinson in-car listening experience, the sound system that produces impeccable sound that immerses the driver in every ride.
