However, if you’re looking for more excitement on your morning commute, you can opt for the available 2.4-liter Turbo engine, which is capable of 275 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re looking to combine performance and efficiency, the 2022 Lexus NX offers both a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid model as well.
2022 Lexus NX: Technology
Luxury vehicles, like the 2022 Lexus NX, are known for their advanced technologies. However, the NX takes it a step further by introducing a new intelligent multimedia display: the Lexus Interface.
This infotainment system works with a 9.8-inch touchscreen display, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, and Human Machine Interface (HMI), a system that enhances user interaction through sight, touch, and voice.
This intuitive interface also includes a Virtual Assistant, an intelligent feature that allows drivers to easily access navigation, media, phone, or some vehicle settings just by using their voice. Yep, that’s right—with a quick command, you can call mom or ask your crossover to roll up the windows.
