Upgraded Lexus lineup to make Chicago Auto Show

By CARSIFU | 8 February 2022

CHICAGO: Lexus is bringing style, technology and efficiency to the Feb 12-21 Chicago Auto Show, including the all-new 2022 LX 600, NX and IS 500 SEMA Build.

With an all-new 3.5-litre V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine, the LX 600 promises 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.


The new NX will also be on display, showcasing an entirely new platform, making the mid-size SUV longer, wider and taller for more passenger and cargo space.

Taking performance further, the new NX features powerful turbo and sporty hybrid powertrains. Its four new powertrains include a new 2.5-litre inline 4-cylinder engine and the first-ever Lexus plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the NX 450h+, with an EPA-estimated 57km 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.

The Lexus IS 500 SEMA build will be an eye-catching high-performance sedan for attendees to see up-close.


Lexus partnered with Hiraku Co. and Lexus ambassador, Townsend Bell, to develop a uniquely appealing street performance themed IS 500 build.

The customized body kit was 3D printed specifically for the build, and includes a front lip spoiler, side steps, rear diffuser, front fenders, bumper canards, rear roof spoiler and a Seibon carbon fiber hood and trunk.

On the inside, Sparco SPX carbon fibre reclining seats and a custom Alcantara steering wheel complete the build.

The Lexus booth will also 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.
