2022 Lexus LC 500
Trims and Performance
The 2022 Lexus LC 500 is an exhilarating rear-drive coupe that’s available as either a hardtop or a convertible. Both come with a 5.0-liter V8 engine (471 hp and 398 lb.-ft. of torque) that collaborates with a 10-speed direct-shift automatic transmission. This potent powerplant is capable of sending the ’22 LC 500 hardtop from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds (4.6 seconds for the convertible). The EPA’s official fuel economy ratings for the hardtop are 16 miles per gallon around town and 25 mpg on the open road. The convertible is rated at 15 mpg city, with the same 25 mpg on the highway.
Standard and Optional Features
Aside from being a performance-centric coupe, the ’22 LC 500 is also a luxury car. The hardtop model has an adaptive variable suspension, LED headlights, flush exterior door handles, a glass roof (with sunshade), 20-inch wheels with summer performance tires, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats (heated), aluminum sport pedals, a performance-inspired instrument cluster with a G-meter, paddle shifters, and Sport S and S+ drive modes.
The convertible gets those same features, but it also adds a wind deflector/windscreen, a power-operated soft-top roof, active noise control technology, and rear suspension braces. Both models are eligible for a head-up display and a series of packages, which are covered in the Packages section at the end of this page.
Four packages brimming with deluxe features are available to up the appeal of the ’22 LC 500: Touring, Sport, Dynamic Handling, and All-Weather. The Touring Package issues 21-inch wheels, an Alcantara leather headliner, a high-end 13-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, a windshield wiper de-icer, embossed headrests, upgraded leather seats, a special Climate Concierge with upper-body heating, and active parking assist. In addition to the 21-inch wheels and active parking assist system, the Sport Package provides a Torsen limited-slip differential, a Yamaha rear performance damper, performance brake pads, and sport seats with Alcantara inserts.
The Dynamic Handling Package combines the features from the Sport Package, along with carbon-fiber accents (for the roof and door-sill scuff plates), steering enhancements, and a speed-activated rear wing spoiler. The All-Weather Package supplies a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, a windshield wiper de-icer, and a fast-response interior heater.
Advanced Safety, Technology and Optional Packages
The multimedia suite in the ’22 LC 500 consists of an infotainment system with a 10.3-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, integrated navigation, an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD radio, voice recognition, and a premium 12-speaker sound system.
The Lexus Safety System+ is standard in both the hardtop and convertible variants of the ’22 LC 500. It contains a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with lane keep assist, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, and automatic high beams. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert is also standard – it’s just not considered a part of the Lexus Safety System+ bundle.
