2022 Lexus GX, GX Black Line Special Edition Brings Stunning Flair to GX Range

Striking Style. Dynamic versatility. The head-turning three-row GX 460 is not only engineered for all types of terrain including extreme off-road conditions, it also displays exceptional craftsmanship throughout and offers seating for up to seven passengers.

For 2022, the stunning SUV introduces the new GX Black Line Special Edition to its lineup, offering Lexus owners a new way to express their style. For added peace of mind and convenience, Intuitive Parking Assist, Navigation and power folding and heated mirrors are now standard across the entire GX range. Now equipped with refined center console with updated 10.3-inch multimedia touchscreen, GX guests can enjoy an even more seamless in-cabin experience.

GX Black Line Special Edition

Lexus’ successful Black Line Special Edition treatment is available on GX 460. Based on the GX Premium grade, the Black Line models reflect Lexus’ core values of omotenashi (Japanese for anticipatory hospitality) and takumi craftsmanship with their unique premium finishes that will surely elicit attention from passengers and passersby alike.

Each Black Line Special Edition arrives in style. The fog lamp garnish and eye-catching design impress at every turn. Adding to the Black Line specialness are 18-inch wheels finished in glossy black, as well as blackout chrome grille surround. Additional details include unique Black Line lower front and rear bumper valance design, Garnet Red taillamps, Black roof rails and body-colored door handles. Guests can select Starfire Pearl, Black Onyx or the GX Black Line-exclusive, Nori Green Pearl, as exterior colors.

Inside, passengers will notice a black headliner, as well as a confluence of surfaces covered in bi-tone black Nuluxe with gray-colored bolster inserts and stitching. Matte Black Ash Wood trim on the GX’s steering wheel is standard on all Black Line Special Editions. Optional Lexus roof rail cross bars are also available for guests seeking added function and styling.

Advanced Technology with Connectivity

With an enhanced center console, updated 10.3-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa integration, GX offers guests a highly connected and intuitive in-cabin experience.

All GX models for 2022 come with the latest smartphone vehicle integrations and their respective virtual assistants.  Guests can access the same familiar interface of their desired technologies through the GX’s standard 10.3-inch touchscreen dashboard display. The premium suite of connected technology offers multiple ways to stay connected, including the 3-year Lexus Enform Remote trial to remotely start the engine using select smart devices. And, with six USB ports throughout the GX, both the driver and passengers can keep their smart devices charged and ready.

Performance and Design

A dual-purpose luxury vehicle, GX 460 can go from a short work commute to a long family vacation deep in the Rocky Mountains. Every GX is powered by a 301-horsepower 4.6-liter V8 producing 329 lb.-ft. of peak torque. Combine that with a 6,500-lb. towing capacity, and you’ve got an ideal boat hauler. Towing is aided with Trailer Sway Control, a function of the Vehicle Stability Control that enhances straight-line tracking.

Embracing a sophisticated design all its own, the muscular GX features an imposing stance, a modern front fascia with Premium Triple-Beam LED headlamps, available 19-inch wheels and more. Feel at home in unparalleled craftsmanship, bold details and a striking balance of comfort and capability from a luxury utility vehicle that exceeds all expectations.

Off-Road Moxie

Enhancing GX’s already capable skillset when the pavement ends is the Off-Road Package that’s available on Luxury grade. The package offers proven off-road technologies such as Lexus’ Multi-Terrain Monitor and Panoramic View Monitors with driver and passenger cameras, transmission cooler, fuel tank protector, Crawl Control and Multi-Terrain Select.

Multi-Terrain Select allows you to choose from multiple surfaces such as loose rocks, mud and sand, moguls and more to optimize drivability. This advanced system regulates wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle and brakes, helping improve traction. Demanding off-road situations necessitate constant awareness of all surroundings. With the Multi-Terrain Monitor and Panoramic View Monitors, front passengers can view front, rear, side and now under (displaying terrain and tire location underneath your vehicle) camera views on the navigation screen, providing the most avid off-road driver peace of mind.

Activated with the press of a button, the available Crawl Control system is designed to automatically maintain an optimal slow and steady pace over demanding landscapes. Crawl Control is designed for driving on difficult terrain at low speeds and automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings, so drivers can keep their focus on steering through difficult terrain.

Engaged when the vehicle is in low range, Crawl Control allows the vehicle to move forward or in reverse at one of five driver-selectable low-speed settings. Crawl Control also engages the front and rear “virtual” Locking differentials to help reduce tire slippage and optimize chassis behavior. Crawl Control can also help the driver navigate the GX 460 through sand, mud or snow.
