Exterior design updates
The 2022 Lexus ES sports a new Graphite-painted grille design on all trim levels except the F Sport. The updated grille sports concentric “L” shapes that fan out from the Lexus badge. It’s complemented by a variety of wheel options. It comes standard with a 17-inch design with V-shaped spokes, but also offers an 18-inch split 10-spoke wheel, a five-spoke noise reduction wheel, and 19-inch exclusive five-spoke black wheels for the ES F Sport model. The luxury sedan also gained a couple of new exterior color options: Iridium and Cloudburst Gray.
Connectivity and Safety
An updated infotainment system is the most notable change to the 2022 Lexus ES. The Lexus Multimedia System offers a standard 8-inch touch screen and an available 12.3-inch display. In addition to now featuring touch-screen capabilities, the screens themselves have been re-positioned to be more ergonomic and accessible to the driver. The 2022 ES also sports a redesigned instrument panel with a more seamless design and a cleaner layout.
For the 2022 model year, the Lexus ES is replacing the Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 with the Lexus Safety System+ 2.5. The latest edition of this advanced safety suite adds updated camera and radar technology to improve the accuracy of its frontal collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and bicyclist detection features. It also adds Intersection Turning Assist, which helps you avoid colliding with crossing pedestrians or oncoming traffic. Its other new driver-assist feature is Emergency Steering Assist, which boosts your stability when you make evasive driving maneuvers.
