The 2022 Lexus LX is available in a choice of five trims: Standard, Premium, F Sport, Luxury, and Ultra Luxury. All are powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 making 409 hp and 479 lb-ft. AWD and a ten-speed automatic transmission are standard. Four-, five-, and seven-seater configurations are on offer depending on which trim you choose.
The LX 600 Standard seats five and its base price will get you a power moonroof, a power rear door, and LED exterior lighting. It has leather seats which are both heated and power-adjustable in front. Like the rest of the lineup, a 12.3-inch touchscreen is complemented by a seven-inch touchscreen lower down. Rounding out the features on this model are four-zone climate control, wireless charging, a panoramic view monitor, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.
Next is the Premium. Besides all the features already mentioned above, it seats seven occupants instead of five. It gets ventilated front seats, heated second-row outboard seats, a color head-up display, and an adaptive variable suspension.
The most extroverted member of the LX 600 lineup is the F Sport. It’s no faster than the rest and it doesn’t matter how much Lexus tries, this will never be a sporty machine to pilot, but it does get a uniquely tuned suspension with front/rear performance dampers and a Torsen limited-slip differential for tidier handling. It is available with a Circuit Red cabin, and the seats are trimmed in semi-aniline perforated leather. Various stylistic differences set it apart including a mesh grille and 22-inch alloy wheels.
The Luxury retails for only $2,000 more than the F Sport but will suit a more relaxed driver seeking a plush, sophisticated look and feel. It gets power-closing doors, heated/ventilated seats in the first two rows, a wood/leather steering wheel, and the magnificent Mark Levinson Reference 3D surround sound system.
Finally, the Ultra Luxury loses the third row and seats only four, but in exceptional comfort. Diamond stitching is added to the semi-aniline leather, and those in the second row can recline their seats by up to 48 degrees. Rear-seat wireless charging, a rear touchscreen, and a power rear footrest make this an ideal vehicle to be chauffeured in.
