In terms of design, the Lexus LX looks like the older model, while retaining the wheelbase as well as approach and departure angles. Up front, the LX gets a large signature grille with a large Lexus logo at the centre. The LED headlights have been updated with a sleeker DRL pattern as well.

The side profile of the 2022 Lexus LX remains largely the same, save for more pronounced and squared-off wheel arches.

At the rear, the LX gets sleeker LED taillights with a connecting bar accompanied by a flat tailgate design and a large rear window.
