Last month, Lexus announced that the RXL would receive a limited edition Black Line finish for the 2022 model year. However, there was no mention of the regular RX. Lexus rectifies this omission today by announcing that the RX is also receiving the Black Line treatment for 2022.
The Black Line trim will be available on the Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h, giving both models a modest makeover with dark trims and other upgrades. The Black Line kit includes 20 inch black wheels and lug nuts, a black lower front bumper, black mirrors and a black Lexus grille. The trim accents are more subtle at the rear, with Lexus replacing the nameplate badge with a black one. The 2022 Lexus RX Black Line will be available in Eminent White Pearl and Caviar.
The black theme continues inside with open-pore black wood trim, black NuLuxe seats and light gray contrast stitching throughout the interior on the seats, steering wheel, upper dashboard, center console and the gearshift box. Lexus includes all of the straps in its Premium Package on Black Line models, which includes its memory system and more. The Black Line trim is a visual upgrade only, allowing the crossover to offer a bit of variety in its styling.
Lexus IS is limiting production of the RX Black Line as it did for the RXL Black Line, although the smaller crossover will have more production. Lexus plans to produce 2,500 RX Black Line models for North America, of which 2,100 will be the gasoline model while the remaining 400 will be the hybrid variant. Pricing for the RX 350 Black Line starts at $ 49,450, while the 450h AWD starts at $ 52,150 (prices exclude destination charges). That’s about a $ 4,000 premium over the entry-level price for both variants.
