New Black Line Special Edition package

Pros

High seating position provides a good view of the road
Easy-to-use interior controls

Cons
High floor and side-hinged cargo door can make it hard to load cargo
Uncomfortable seats

A Black Line Special Edition of the Lexus GX joins the lineup this year and comes with a host of blacked-out exterior trim, unique 18-inch wheels, a black interior headliner, and black faux-leather upholstery. The GX receives several new standard features for 2022, including a new, larger 10.3-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also newly standard this year is a parking assistant feature, in-dash navigation, and power-folding heated exterior mirrors. Lexus's desirable Nori Green paint color is now available as an option on the GX for the first time.

Pros
Able to tackle off-road trails,
plenty of standard driver-assistance features,
surprisingly hushed cabin.

Cons
Uncomfortable rear seats,
lacks cargo space with third row in use,
dated design.
