Just refreshed for 2021, we expect the Lexus LS luxury full-size sedan to carry over mostly unchanged for 2022. That means a sedan with handling that belies its size and a lovely artistic interior, along with a few quirks. However, Lexus has announced that the 2022 LS500h hybrid will be offered with its next-generation semi-autonomous driving system.
Lexus Teammate is a Level 2 system that will allow the driver to take their hands off the wheel in certain situations. When activated, Lexus Teammate has the capability to steer, accelerate, and brake without driver intervention. Besides hands-free capability, the way the 2022 LS handles lane changes or freeway interchanges without driver intervention is what distinguishes it from the 2021 LS' existing adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist systems.
The driver must remain alert when Lexus Teammate is activated; built-in cameras monitor posture, head direction, and distractions. If all the parameters are met, however, the driver can take their hands off the wheel and let the car handle many basic driving tasks. After it debuts on the 2022 LS500h, expect Lexus Teammate to be offered on more Lexus models in the years to come.
