The Lexus GX 460 is an oddly charming SUV, one as luxurious as it is capable with some of the best off-road chops in the business. Lexus announced a number of changes for the 2022 GX 460 on Thursday, and while they don't radically shake up the SUV's overall formula, they do offer meaningful improvements that'll make the GX easier to live with day to day.
Most importantly, the 2022 GX gets a big cabin tech upgrade. The old GX used an incredibly outdated infotainment system that was clunky and slow, and didn't offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility. Now, a redesigned dashboard houses a 10.3-inch touchscreen, running Lexus' latest multimedia tech complete with smartphone mirroring capabilities. Speaking of phones, the 2022 GX has six USB ports throughout the cabin to keep those devices charged.
Navigation, parking assist and power-folding heated mirrors are all standard equipment on the 2022 GX, joining the already robust list of driver-assistance technologies. Like all 2022 model year Lexus vehicles, the GX 460 comes with the Lexus Safety System Plus suite, which includes pre-collision braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, automatic high-beams and high-speed (read: not full-speed) adaptive cruise control.
A new Black Line trim package rounds out the 2022 model year changes, and it's similar to what Lexus offers on its other vehicles. Here, the Black Line pack adds unique wheels, black chrome trim and new bumper valances. Buyers can pair this package with a few different exterior colors, including the new Nori Green Pearl pictured above.
All the other GX details are the same as they ever were. Power comes from a 4.6-liter V8 with 301 horsepower and 329 pound-feet of torque, and a number of different off-road technologies can help you take the GX pretty far off the beaten path.
The 2022 GX is on sale now, priced from $56,500 including $1,075 for destination. The Black Line special edition isn't yet listed on Lexus' consumer site, but we expect it to be available in the coming months.

2022 Lexus GX: Everything We Know So Far
By Tijo TensonUpdated
The 2nd-gen Lexus GX has held on well, but it is now sitting on its threshold and is in desperate need of a generation upgrade.
Lexus is known for flaunting sharp, bold design cues on all of its offerings, irrespective of the vehicle type. In fact, it's fairly certain that if Lexus ever decides to produce a pick-up truck, it will be another quirky yet perfectly acceptable and stylish addition to its sharp design language. After all, its unique design, in combination with reliability, comfort, and practicality is why the brand shot to fame in such a short time span.
Updated July 2021: If you're a Lexus fan, or just want to know the latest news about the 2022 Lexus GX, you've come to the right place. We've updated this article with the latest rumors and confirmed features for the Japanese luxury SUV.
The GX is actually one of Lexus's longest-standing offerings, and it hasn't received a generation upgrade in ages. The SUV slots in just below Lexus' flagship offering, the LX, which will effectively be replaced by the Lexus LQ in 2022. The 2021 Lexus GX still thrives on the 2nd generation GX, a model that was introduced as far back as 2010. It is quite impressive for an 11-year-old platform to remain even vaguely relevant in this age of fully electric and hybrid platforms from all major automakers, including its parent company — Toyota.
The GX has managed to hold on well, but it is now sitting on its threshold and is in desperate need of a generation upgrade. However, we do have to wait a just tad bit longer for that, as the 2022 Lexus GX is also expected to be based on the 2nd gen platform, and a carryover of the mildly updated 2021 Lexus GX. This sleek-looking oldie will continue to lock horns with the modern bunch of capable SUVs, including the Porsche Cayenne, BMW X5, Volvo XC90 Audi Q8, and the all-new Genesis GV80.
The 2022 Lexus GX will be a carryover and will be the 2nd-Gen's last run before being given an all-new generation upgrade in 2023.

What Changes Would The 2022 Lexus GX Flaunt?
The 2022 Lexus GX 460 will flaunt subtle updates in the form of new exterior shades. Lexus will continue to offer it in 3 trims — Base, Premium, and Luxury, and prices will be similar to the 2021MY. This means the base trim will be at an MSRP of $53,450 and the lineup will top out at $64,715 for the Luxury trim. With the 2022 Lexus GX, the SUV will enter into its 13th MY which is quite a drag. Hopefully, it will end next year, as rumors suggest that the 2023 Lexus GX will be an all-new generation with hybrid power.

2022 Lexus GX Continues With The 301 Hp 4.6L V8
The 2022 Lexus GX will continue to pack its one and only powerplant, a 4.8L naturally aspirated V8 that produces 301 hp and 329 lb-ft. This engine has been the choice of power source for this sharp SUV ever since the beginning of its existence and continues to do so, courtesy of flexibility in terms of performance and traceability. However, these figures are somewhat underwhelming for a large SUV that weighs well over 5,000 pounds.
While it may not be a performance SUV, the good news is that Lexus is providing its clever Kinetic Dynamic Suspension system as standard. The 2022 GX will also continue to enjoy these perks and also have a maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds. All of this allows us to forgive it for the sluggish performance and acceleration figures, with 0-60 mph taking 7.2 seconds it's not the slowest vehicle out there, but it's not exactly mind-bendingly fast either.
2022 GX Gets A Spacious Yet Outdated Interior Setup
Seeing as the 2022 Lexus GX is a continuation of the 2nd-gen model, there aren't any huge surprises regarding the interior — which still has acres of space. The cabin was always the Lexus GX's strong point, apart from its sassy off-roading skills, that is. However, the fact remains that the 2022 Lexus GX will carry forth an interior layout that was last updated in 2010, and this does make things very, very boring. Comfort is top-notch, but only for those lucky enough to find themselves in the first row. The second-row seats are too flat and don't provide an ergonomic seating layout.
Incredibly, the 3rd row is actually even worse and is probably best suited to kids. There is loads of available space, but utilization could be drastically improved. Hopefully this is something Lexus will sort out once and for all with the 3rd-gen model. A good aspect when it comes to 'space' is that the 2022 GX will offer 11.6 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the 3rd row, which enlarges to 46.7 cu. ft. behind the 2nd row. If that is still not enough, then you open up a queen-sized bed space when you fold the second rows too, with a cargo space of 64.7 cu. ft.
There's certainly no shortage of technology features, but unfortunately, it's all too outdated. It comes with a varying list based on the trim. The base trim gets a 9-speaker audio setup and an 8-inch touchscreen unit. Bluetooth connectivity, hands-free support, and SiriusXM are standard features. Going up the trim ladder, you can add more screens for the 2nd-row passengers, an integrated navigation system, and also a 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system. Fingers-crossed, we hope for Lexus to somehow at least add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the 2022 GX. For now, we are sure of it being Amazon Alexa compatible.

2022 Lexus GX Exterior Will Be Muscular With Subtle Fascia Tweaks
Massive dimensions and sharp design cues are what defines the Lexus GX. The 2022YM will have the same definition, albeit with a few additional tweaks, such as new exterior shades. The larger-than-life front Lexus-specific spindle grille will still take you by surprise, but its boxy form factor will be as old school as ever. As Lexus had tweaked the front and rear fascia in 2020 for a more aggressive and modern look, we expect the 2022 GX to flaunt no new changes.
Thanks To Its Toyota Roots, Safety And Warranty Are A No-Brainer
Lexus certainly knows a thing or two when it comes to safety. Standard safety features will be plentiful in the 2022 GX with the Lexus Safety System + that includes a Pre-collision system with pedestrian detection. Other features include 10-standard airbags, intelligent high beam headlights, and Trailer Sway Control among many others. In terms of warranty, it packs the best in its segment with a standard warranty of 4 years/50,000 miles; powertrain warranty of 6 years/70,000 miles; and complimentary maintenance for 1 year/10,000 miles.

2022 Lexus GX: Preview, Pricing, Release Date
The Lexus GX arrived at showrooms in 2020 with an updated exterior design that gave the midsize SUV a sharp look to try and keep the vehicle competitive. Despite the SUV entering its 13th model year on sale, we expect the 2022 Lexus GX to be a carryover model.
When the Lexus GX went on sale in 2020, it arrived with more aggressive design elements for a fresher look. As a carryover model, the 2022 Lexus GX will have the same overall design as the current SUV that’s on sale. The current GX wears an oversized version of Lexus’ spindle grille that dominates the front end. From the side, the GX’s boxy design and tall ride height make it a capable off-roader. At the back, the GX has a swing-out tailgate, which is an odd feature for a modern SUV.
The current GX shows its age on the inside. In addition to a few hard plastics and a center console that’s littered with buttons, the GX doesn’t have the same stylish design or upscale cabin as its competitors. Clear gauges, large dials, and clear sightlines out of the SUV make the GX easy to use and drive. We expect the interior design to remain the same for the 2022 Lexus GX.
On top of a standard 8-inch touchscreen, the current GX comes with Amazon Alexa, voice recognition, four USB ports, an HD radio, nine audio speakers, and Bluetooth. Optional features include a Mark Levinson audio system and navigation. The 2022 GX will share the same tech features as the current model.
The current GX features a 4.6-liter V8 engine that we expect will go unchanged for the 2022 model year. The engine is rated at 301 horsepower and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. A standard full-time four-wheel-drive system, a two-speed transfer case, and a locking center differential are also included.
Standard safety features on the Lexus GX include automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert. A surround-view parking camera and parking sensors are optional. Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash-tested the current GX. Without any expected changes, the 2022 Lexus GX will come with the same safety features as the current model.
If your lifestyle includes the actual driving of trails to off-grid glampsites, the 2022 Lexus GX is one luxury SUV that will get you there in appropriate style. Its truck-like body-on-frame construction, 4.6-liter V-8, and adjustable suspension system will climb over almost any obstacle in your way. The downsides? The GX isn't very fuel efficient and its on-road demeanor is clumsy, not to mention that other car-based crossover rivals offer more comfort. But the GX plays in a niche within the mid-size SUV marketplace for luxury off-roaders that also includes the Land Rover Defender, which makes Lexus a unique choice.
What's New for 2022?
A Black Line Special Edition of the Lexus GX joins the lineup this year and comes with a host of blacked-out exterior trim, unique 18-inch wheels, a black interior headliner, and black faux-leather upholstery. The GX receives several new standard features for 2022, including a new, larger 10.3-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also newly standard this year is a parking assistant feature, in-dash navigation, and power-folding heated exterior mirrors. Lexus's desirable Nori Green paint color is now available as an option on the GX for the first time.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
The base-model Lexus GX460 comes with enough standard features to please most buyers in this segment. This SUV rolls on standard 18-inch wheels, and all models are equipped with exterior amenities such as automatic LED headlights, daytime running lights, illuminated running boards, and heated power-adjustable side mirrors with integrated turn signals. Ten-way power-adjustable front seats and a power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering column are on hand to help you find an ideal position behind the wheel. The cabin is also home to standard features such as keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, faux-leather upholstery, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. All GX SUVs comes with driver-assistance amenities such as blind-spot monitoring and lane-keeping assistance.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The 2022 Lexus GX continues to offer just one engine: a 4.6-liter V-8 that generates 301 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque. This powerplant is teamed with a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Lexus's Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System is standard, and this setup aims to boost traction during off-road adventures. During our testing, the GX cruised from zero to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. We've tested rival models that are much quicker, however. An Audi Q7 with the available V-6 made the sprint in 6.1 seconds, and a BMW X5 xDrive50i covered the same distance in a scant 4.2 seconds. The GX exhibits relatively smooth handling on paved streets, but it is in its element when taken off-road. Its sturdy underpinnings and 8.1 inches of ground clearance make this SUV an excellent choice for buyers who need a vehicle that's at home in the great outdoors. A 6500-pound towing capacity bolsters its versatility.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The GX won't win any awards for fuel economy. According to the EPA, this all-wheel-drive SUV achieves mileage of just 15/19 mpg city/highway. That puts it well behind rival luxury SUVs such as the Lincoln Aviator, which gets 17/24 mpg when equipped with all-wheel drive. During our time with the GX, we observed mileage of just 20 mpg during our 200-mile highway fuel economy test—which is part of our comprehensive test regimen. For more information about the GX's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Lexus gave the GX its last full redesign all the way back in 2010, and this is perhaps one reason for the somewhat dated appearance of its cabin. The interior is home to wood and leather that looks appropriately deluxe, but there are also some hard plastics that seem out of place in a vehicle in this price range. Front-row passengers enjoy pleasant accommodations and a lofty seating position, but the second-row seats are surprisingly flat and hard, and the third row is a cramped space best left for kids. To its credit, the GX does a great job of keeping road noise out of the cabin, and the interior remains tranquil even when the vehicle is being driven at high speeds. This Lexus provides 11.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row and 46.7 cubic feet behind the second. With the second and third rows folded, cargo space jumps to 64.7 cubic feet. This is less room than you'll get in rival models such as the Audi Q7 (14.2 cubic feet behind the third row, 35.7 cubic feet behind the second, and 69.6 cubic feet behind the first).
Infotainment and Connectivity
The GX offers an appealing range of tech amenities. Base models come with a nine-speaker audio setup and an infotainment system governed by a 10.3-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Standard Bluetooth connectivity facilitates hands-free phone calls, and all models come with SiriusXM satellite radio. The selection of available tech features includes a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system and integrated navigation. The options list also includes a 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The GX comes equipped with driver-assistance features that can help you avoid accidents such as automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning. For more information about the GX's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
- Standard lane-departure warning
- Standard adaptive cruise control
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
When it comes to warranty coverage, Lexus outpaces rivals such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
- Limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers 6 years or 70,000 miles
- Complimentary maintenance is covered for 1 years or 10,000 miles
