New features for a new year. At long last, the 2022 Lexus models have arrived at our dealership in Escondido. This year’s models come with a variety of changes, and we want to share what those changes are, so you can fall in love with these vehicles just as we have.

2022 Lexus NX

This small luxury crossover has a redesigned look and with it a stellar selection of new features. The 9.8-inch touchscreen is still standard, but the screen is increased to 14 inches at higher trims. Standard across each trim are features like Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and Power-folding/self-dimming side mirrors. For an enhanced audio experience, Carlsbad and San Marcos CA drivers can enjoy the optional amplifier for the Mark Levison audio system.

The base powertrain is an all-wheel-drive 2.5-liter inline-4 that offers 203 horsepower. For a more fuel-efficient ride, two-hybrid engines are available, each of which marries the standard 2.5-liter engine with a battery-powered motor.

2022 Lexus IS

Redesigned back in 2021, with a new look and enhanced features, not much has changed for the 2022 Lexus IS. What has changed is the New 2022 Lexus IS is the 500 F Sport trim receiving a 5.0-liter 472 horsepower V-8 that creates 395 pounds-feet of torque. It’s estimated that this vehicle can go 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds. This vehicle comes with an 8-speed automatic to power the rear wheels and an adaptive suspension and limited-slip differential.

2022 Lexus GX

For the 2022 GX, Lexus has outfitted this three-row SUV with some excellent upgraded technology. The touchscreen display has been increased to 10.3 inches and now comes standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa functionality. Navigation, parking assist, and power-folding heated side mirrors also come standard for this year’s model. Under the hood, Vista CA drivers can expect to find a 4.6-liter 301 horsepower V-8, producing 329 pounds-feet of torque with a 6-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.
