2022 Lexus IS500 Launch Edition Offers a New Color Combo

  • Lexus is offering a Launch Edition version of the new IS500.
  • It has a special exterior color and suede interior trim, along with a serialized plaque inside.
  • The IS500 will go on sale in the U.S. this fall, and 500 units of the Launch Edition will be available.

    The new V-8–powered 2022 Lexus IS500 will offer a special Launch Edition model with a unique color combo, different wheels, and a few interior tweaks. 500 units of the IS500 F Sport Performance Launch Edition will be produced for North America, and it’ll likely cost a bit more than the standard model, though pricing isn’t yet available.

    The Launch Edition’s exterior color is called Incognito, and it’s a light grey hue that’s new to Lexus. Inside, the Launch Edition gets a serialized plaque along with grey and black suede upholstery, wood trim for the steering wheel, and a different startup animation for the gauge-cluster screen. The same black 19-inch BBS wheels offered in the Dynamic Handling package are standard on the Launch Edition and are said to be lighter than the standard 19-inch wheels.

    Under the hood is the same naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 472 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. All IS500 models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. Lexus refers to it as an F Sport Performance model rather than a full F car like the RC F coupe, which has the same engine.
