Continuing the fine Lexus tradition of producing world-class
vehicles with outstanding performance and exquisite luxury,
the new 2002 LX 470 Sport Utility Vehicle enters the year
boasting superior off-road performance while offering up
tremendous comfort and conveniences to its happy passengers.
The single current Lexus LX 470 SUV has been
graced with an extensive array of standard equipment that
covers a complete range of items you will want in a sport
utility vehicle. 2001 saw a series of upgrades that remain
unchanged for this year with the exception of a new standard
Digital Versatile Disc Lexus Navigation System.
Within the opulent interior of the LX 470 SUV
are thankful standards such as auto-dimming mirrors, automatic
climate control, cruise control, first aid kit, genuine
leather upholstery and trim, power rear quarter windows,
power door locks, and power heated front seats. The seating
capacity is eight passengers and offers up to 90.4 cubic
feet of cargo space.
For entertainment value, passengers will experience a premium
seven-speaker audio system with in-dash CD player, and a
standard DVD changer/player in the center console. A nine-speaker
Mark Levinson audio system is available as an option.
The rugged yet sophisticated Lexus LX 470 SUV
features heated dual power outside mirrors so that you can
see out all angles of the vehicle no matter what the weather.
A power tilt-and-slide moonroof adds a pleasant ambience
and sporty look.
The Lexus LX 470 SUV headlines full-time four-wheel
drive with a center differential that splits the power 50/50
front/rear to adapt to slippage. Under the hood, it wields
a 4.7-litre, DOHC, eight-cylinder engine that pumps out
an impressive 230 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. The
towing capacity is 6,500 lbs.
Exceptional handling can be attributed to rack-and-pinion
steering, height-adjustable suspension, computer-controlled
shock absorber damping, and double wishbone independent
front suspension with torsion bar springs.
