Toyota and Lexus Vehicles will Receive a New Infotainment System by 2025

New infotainment systems are on the way for every Toyota and Lexus vehicles

  • The new systems have been introduced in the 2022 Toyota Tundra and the 2022 Lexus NX

  • Connected services will be more prevalent and over-the-air updates will be possible

  • Every model in both brand’s lineup will feature these systems by 2025

Toyota and Lexus have developed two new infotainment systems to replace their aging technology that endured many criticisms.

Both systems will be similar, with the differences focused on appearance and the number of features rather than the way the systems function. Lexus’ version is named Lexus Interface.

The systems have already been introduced in the 2022 Toyota Tundra pickup and the Lexus NX compact SUV.

These infotainment systems were designed in-house by Toyota and Lexus on a cloud-based model. Over-the-air (OTA) updates will now be available to Toyota and Lexus vehicles, meaning the automakers will be able to make improvements and to add features to existing vehicles by pushing software updates through the vehicle’s internet connectivity.

One of the services that could be offered by the system, according to Toyota, is remote refuelling, where drivers could call a fuel truck that would then come fill the vehicle’s tank on the side of the road.

Another example is the possibility of a feature that scans the interior of the vehicle to detect heartbeats. If someone or a pet is left inside and the cabin warms up in the summer, the system could lower the vehicle’s windows to keep the occupants safe from the heat.

A parking garage locator will also be included as part of the connected services offered by both systems. It will work by sending the location of the vehicle to the driver’s phone, which could be handy when parking in a multilevel parking garage.

Toyota and Lexus want to integrate their new infotainment in every models of their lineup by 2025.
