5 reasons to buy the 2022 Lexus LS 500

1. Refined V6 

The 2022 Lexus LS 500 features a turbocharged V6 engine, delivering robust performance. The 416-horsepower engine propels the sedan from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission for a smooth drive. Rear-wheel drive is standard but there’s available all-wheel drive for added grip when the weather turns. 

2. Compliant ride 

The compliant suspension in the 2022 LS 500 provides a comfortable ride that easily absorbs bumps. The optional air suspension takes that to another level, smoothing out even the roughest pavement. It also includes height adjustments for easier cabin access, contributing to a more luxurious and comfortable driving experience. 

3. Abundant luxury features 

The cabin of the LS 500 is a blend of luxury and technology. It includes a large infotainment touchscreen, premium materials (such as leather, suede, and wood trim available across the trim levels and packages), and connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The available Executive package adds extra luxury touches for your rear seat passengers, including 22-way power-adjustable seats with memory settings and massage functionality.  

4. Lots of tech 

The 2022 Lexus LS 500 comes with plenty of driver-assist technology. Standard features include a rearview camera, intuitive parking assist with auto braking, a blind spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert. If you do a lot of driving, keep an eye out for the available adaptive cruise control, lane change assist, and front cross-traffic alert. 

5. Distinctive design 

The LS 500 stands out with its bold grille and sleek lines. Its design is a statement of luxury and elegance but it manages to set itself apart from other cars on the road. From the expertly crafted interior to the sharp lines that hint at the performance of the V6, this is a sedan you’ll love to look back at — but it’s not so ostentatious that it’ll draw attention.
