Advanced Technology with Connectivity

The latest smartphone vehicle integrations and their respective virtual assistants are standard across the RX lineup. Guests can access the same familiar interface of their desired technologies through the RXL’s standard 8-inch or available 12.3” touchscreen dashboard display. The premium suite of connected technology offers multiple ways to stay connected, including the 3-year Lexus Remote trial to remotely start the engine using select smart devices. And, with six USB ports throughout the RXL, both the driver and passengers can keep their smart devices charged and ready to use.

With Android Auto, drivers can seamlessly access and use their phone on the RXL’s touchscreen display. With larger touch targets, a simplified interface, and easy-to-use voice actions through Google Assistant, it’s designed to minimize distraction, so you can stay focused on the road. Once connected, guests will enjoy music from apps such as Spotify®, or send messages through commonly used apps like WhatsApp®. The interface also allows them to navigate with Google Maps. With Google Assistant in Android Auto, drivers can use their voice to get things done quickly and easily for a seamless, smooth, and enjoyable driving experience. Tailored information is provided based on calendar, device usage, activity and habits.

For Apple CarPlay® integration, guests can use their iPhone through the Lexus RXL’s touchscreen display. When their iPhone is connected, commands for driving directions, phone calls, and sending and receiving messages via Siri® are enabled. They can also gain access to favorite apps like Apple Maps, Podcasts and Audiobooks, as well as third party apps like Spotify.

Through in-car integrations with voice services like Amazon Alexa, guests can access their preferred service and play music, check the news, control smart home devices and more.  With the addition of a designated space to store smartphones near the front of the center console, guests can better utilize space to secure their personal items and still engage with the Lexus Multimedia System.

Driving Dynamics

The 2022 Lexus RXL crossover continues to provide enhanced driving dynamics for guests. Both the front and rear stabilizer bars are hollow to reduce weight, yet their thicker diameters and reinforced bushings help reduce body roll and improve steering response. The shock absorbers work with the stiffer roll bars, while upgraded dampers feature a new friction control device that helps to control high frequency vibrations for a smoother ride.

To further refine the 2022 Lexus RXL’s responsiveness, a stiff suspension design reduces the noise and vibration from the road. Even on turns, the active corner braking will prevent understeering by braking in the inner tire and providing more stability to the vehicle handling.

Safety Features

In addition to Lexus Safety Connect and Service Connect trials included with the vehicle, the suite of standard advanced safety features in the 2022 Lexus RXL includes Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 as standard equipment. This features daytime bicyclist detection and low-light pedestrian detection along with Road Sign Assist (RSA), and Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) to further expand the scenarios in which the RXL is designed to provide additional safety to the driver and passengers.

Daytime bicyclist detection is part of an enhanced Pre-Collision System (PCS). Previously designed to detect a preceding vehicle or pedestrian, the Pre-Collision System has the potential to detect a preceding bicyclist as well. The PCS has also been enhanced to help detect a preceding pedestrian in certain low-light situations by increasing the camera’s sensitivity and dynamic range.

Road Sign Assist (RSA) displays select road sign information in the instrument panel while the Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) system is designed to detect lane markings to determine lane position and place the vehicle in the center of the lane when working in conjunction with the All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. If road markings are not detected, LTA is also capable, in certain conditions, of following the car ahead of it.

Hybrid Performance and Agility:  RX 450hL

Lexus introduced the world’s first luxury hybrid vehicle – a gas/electric version of the RX luxury-utility vehicle- more than a decade ago. The RX 450hL continues to serve as a powerful reminder of the brand’s hybrid leadership, with 308 combined system horsepower for powerful performance and manufacturer-estimated 29 combined mpg rating on the 2022 RX 450hL.
The Lexus Hybrid Drive system pairs the D4-S fuel injection 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine with two high-torque electric drive motor-generators for strong acceleration and passing performance. Instead of transfer gears and a driveshaft to the rear wheels, the all-weather drive system employs a second, independent electric motor to drive the rear wheels when needed to help maintain optimal traction.

Lexus’ passion for brave design, imaginative technology, and exhilarating performance enables the luxury lifestyle brand to create amazing experiences for its customers. Lexus began its journey in 1989 with two luxury sedans and a commitment to pursue perfection. Since then, Lexus has developed its lineup to meet the needs of global luxury customers in more than 90 countries. In the United States, Lexus vehicles are sold through 243 dealers offering a full lineup of luxury vehicles. With six models incorporating Lexus Hybrid Drive, Lexus is the luxury hybrid leader. Lexus also offers eight F SPORT models and two F performance models. Lexus is committed to being a visionary brand that anticipates the future for luxury customers.

She enthusiastically shares her experiences through her journalistic work, writing about international travel, cars, performing arts, and news in general. Darina's work can be found in several international publications. Hello! I'm Darina Logvinova. My life is full of interesting events. And I want to share this with you. My passion is to travel. Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also fond of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
