Consumer Reports put the 2022 Lexus RX high on its luxury midsize SUV list. The Lexus RX is sometimes called America’s favorite luxury SUV, and that is because of its reliable nature. The Lexus RX received high marks on the road test, predicted reliability, and predicted owner satisfaction.

The 2022 Lexus RX has top marks for reliability back to the year 2000. When a vehicle has a verifiable history like this, it usually means you can anticipate having fewer problems overall. Owners report being satisfied with the comfort, driving experience, and styling of the reliable SUV. The RX is getting a big makeover for 2023, which might mean better deals on this 2022 model as the year moves forward.

2022 RX pricing: $45,920 – $58,110

When it came to the 2022 Lexus RX L, a similar story appeared of reliability and happy owners. The RX L is a longer version of the regular RX luxury Lexus SUV. The third row adds more cargo space, which has been something Lexus has been missing from the lineup. The third row isn’t very big, but it will do for children and extra groceries. Buyers can opt for the hybrid powertrain for better fuel economy as well.

The RX L also gets Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 with forward collision warning (FCW) with pedestrian detection. Lane-departure warning (LDW), blind-spot warning (BSW), and rear-cross traffic warning (RCTW) are also included. Lexus calls these systems different names, but the premise is the same.

2022 RX L pricing: $48,050 – $57,310

Depending on who you ask, the Lexus GX is a large sport utility vehicle

Though Consumer Reports considers the 2022 Lexus GX a midsize luxury SUV, it borders on large. The Lexus SUV has room for seven and performed well on the road test. The predicted reliability score was high, but the owner satisfaction score was average. CR highlighted the driving experience, comfort, and styling of this Lexus SUV.

FCW, BSW, LDW, and RCTW are included standard on the GX. Consumer Reports says, “this old-school vehicle is still quiet, powerful, and nicely finished inside.” This reliable luxury SUV has plenty of room and plenty of tech to keep owners happy.

2022 GX pricing: $56,125 – $65,635

The 2022 BMW X5 was actually the number one vehicle on this Consumer Reports list, but the luxury Lexus SUVS filled in the next three spots. Keep an eye out for the 2023 models as Lexus continues to improve its best sellers.
