- lexus has confirmed that a new nx is coming for 2022, and it will debut june 11.
- a teaser photo shows an interesting taillight setup with a full-width led bar.
- the new nx will likely be offered in nx250, nx350, and nx350h versions.
the second generation of lexus's nx crossover is nearly here, and we're getting our first official glimpse of the new model thanks to this teaser photo. ahead of the 2022 nx's debut on june 11, we can see that it features a taillight setup with a full-width led light bar and a lexus script across the tailgate that appears to be in a new font.
we've already seen spy photos of the new nx, which show a similar silhouette as the current car. we think some of the bigger changes may be seen inside, as the current car's interior is dated; we're especially hoping that lexus does away with the annoying infotainment touchpad that controls the central display screen in favor of a more modern touchscreen.
trademarks suggest that the nx lineup will include an nx250 model, possibly powered by a 2.5-liter inline-four, and an nx350, possibly powered by a 3.5-liter v-6. the hybrid version is likely to continue, with its nx350h designation suggesting that it could use the rav4 prime's 302-hp plug-in-hybrid powertrain.
we'll learn more next week, as the nx will make its debut live on june 11 at 11pm on the lexus website.
