Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lexus NX invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
This crossover has been popular for awhile, and for 2022, it gets a lot of new design elements. This should be able to help this model stand out even more in the market, at least to potential buyers looking for high-end, two-row SUVs. As a Lexus, the 2022 Lexus NX feels upscale and luxurious. It has a nice technology package as well as advanced safety mechanisms, and it handles itself pretty well.
Changes for the 2022 Model Year
Lexus has lengthened the wheelbase and widened the track of the NX. As a result, handling and ride quality have been enhanced. The angles of the frame have been altered a bit so that now the ES looks more striking. Inside the cabin of the crossover, the touchpad-based infotainment system has been swapped out for a touchscreen. It seems that most people prefer having touchscreens that are similar in feel to tablets. There are a few other things that have changed as well, one of the most notable being that customers now have an option of four different powertrains.
The first engine option is found on the NX 250 and 250 AWD. It's a 2.5-liter engine with four cylinders, and it can make 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This amount of power is going to keep some people satisfied, even if it doesn't offer the most thrilling experience.
An upgraded engine is what the NX 350 models use. They both come standard with all-wheel drive, and they rely on turbocharged 2.4-liter engines. This turbocharger makes a difference; this engine can make 275 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration is much quicker, and the overall driving experience is more pleasant.
Offering even more power are the NX 450h+ models, which also come standard with all-wheel drive. These are plug-in hybrids that use electric motors and 2.5-liter engines. Together, these components can generate 304 horsepower. These versions can really zip around town at a fast pace.
Finally, there's a regular hybrid option. The 350h model comes with all-wheel drive, like most of the other NX crossovers. Its hybrid system consists of an electric motor and a 2.5-liter engine, and it has a net horsepower of 240.
All NX models have paddle shifters to give drivers an opportunity to take control over shifting. The non-hybrids use eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmissions with sequential-shift mode, while the hybrids use electronically controlled continuously variable transmissions.
The NX 250 earns 33 miles per gallon on the highway and 26 miles per gallon in the city. Each of those numbers drops by one when the 250 is equipped with all-wheel drive.
Fuel economy on the 350 models that use the 2.4-liter turbo engine isn't as great. These vehicles can earn up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway and 22 miles per gallon in the city.
Of course, the hybrid and plug-in hybrid are the ones to pick if a customer prioritizes efficiency over anything else. The 350h, a regular hybrid, can achieve up to 41 miles per gallon in the city and 37 miles per gallon on the highway. The plug-in hybrid has an estimated MPGe of 84.
F Sport Trims
The 350 and 450h+ are both available in a special trim called the F Sport. The F Sport has enhanced performance features as well as unique stylized details that make them feel aggressive and athletic.
These two trims are set up with lateral performance dampers and adaptive variable suspension. This suspension can make adjustments based on the conditions that the vehicle is dealing with. For instance, it would react differently if the NX is cruising down the highway versus aggressively taking turns on a curvy road.
All trims have Drive Mode Select to let people customize the experience a bit. Eco, Normal, and Sport mode are the standard options. The F Sports have Sport+ mode to make the drive even more thrilling, and they have Custom modes.
To match their performance, Lexus has given them several exterior embellishments. Those include gloss black roof rails, gloss black side mirrors, black wheels, and a trim-specific front fascia with a mesh grille insert.
Inside their cabins, the black headliner matches the exterior elements. Aluminum pedals look like what one might see in a sports car, and the seats have enhanced bolsters for more support.
All trims of the NX have impressive components. Most have NuLuxe upholstery, which is a synthetic leather, while one trim has perforated leather seats. Power-adjustable front seats are standard, as are leather-wrapped steering wheels and gear shifters. Each trim has heated front seats for extra warmth, and the top trim have heated and ventilated front seats. Ventilation is optional in all of the other trims.
Bluetooth, wireless Apple CarPlay, and wireless Android Auto are incorporated into the NX's infotainment system. Plus, voice commands are accepted. This makes it easier for a driver to stay focused on the road.
Most of the trims have 9.8-inch touchscreens, while the top two have 14-inch touchscreens with navigation, Apple Music and Amazon Music streaming capability, and Wi-Fi connect. Keep in mind that the larger touchscreen and all of the advanced features are available across the lineup.
An additional seven-inch display has been placed behind the steering wheel. It keeps drivers informed about how they're doing. A panoramic monitor is available, and driver-assist technologies are standard.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
