Visit Lexus for more information on the Lexus GX 470.

With the GX 470, Lexus introduces a new luxury SUV. Constructed with a classic body-on frame design, this sporty vehicle contains a standard all-wheel drive system that features low-range gearing and a special hill-descent control. This system automatically slows the 2003 Lexus GX 470 as it progresses down steep grades. Hill-ascent control is also an attractive standard feature, which holds the SUV in place for five seconds. These systems will prove very useful for off-road drivers and, coupled with the benchmark Lexus comfort and quality, mean this SUV will be a strong contender in its class.

Available Models
The 2003 Lexus GX 470 is available in one 4-door wagon model. It contains three rows of seats, and comes with 5-speed automatic transmission.

Interior Features
The standard interior features of the 2003 Lexus GX 470 include leather upholstery, heated front seats, a 10-way power driver seat, a 4-way power passenger seat, front air conditioning with automatic climate control, and power steering. Other standard trimmings are remote keyless entry, rear radio controls, an AM/FM/cassette with in-dash 6-disc CD changer, a trip computer, a tachometer, a digital clock, and illuminated visor mirrors. This SUV's second seat folds forward, while its third row of seats can be lifted completely out of the vehicle, providing an astounding amount of space for luggage and gear.

A navigation system is optional on the 2003 Lexus GX 470, as is a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

Exterior Features
The standard wheel size on the 2003 Lexus GX 470's alloy wheels is 17 inches. A power sunroof is standard, as is a roof rack, automatic headlights, and lighted running boards. The GX 470 also comes equipped with rain-sensing wipers, and rear privacy glass.

This SUV contains a 4.7-litre V8 engine that delivers 235 hp at 4800 rpm, and 320 lbs-ft of torque at 3400 rpm. Aided by a 5-speed automatic transmission, this vehicle offers power. It also offers an exceptional ride, thanks to its self-leveling rear air suspension, height adjustable suspension, and automatic shock-absorber control.

Safety and Security
A theft-deterrent system is standard on the Lexus GX 470. Safety features abound. These include anti-lock 4-wheel disc brakes with full-power assist, and an anti-skid/traction control system, as well as front torso side airbags and curtain side airbags for the first two rows of seats. The hill-descent control is an added bonus for those drivers intending to take this SUV off-road frequently. Fog lights and daytime running lights are also standard.
