Visit Lexus for more information on the Lexus LX 470.

This luxury SUV is newly styled for 2003, and comes with enticing new options. One of these is Lexus's Night View system, which uses a unique night-vision camera and light sensors to project an image on the windscreen, showing the driver what lies ahead. Fast, roomy, and easy to handle, the 2003 Lexus LX 470 is also as feature-loaded as any Lexus vehicle on the road.

Available Models
The 2003 Lexus LX 470 is available in one 4-door wagon model, and comes with 5-speed automatic transmission. This truck-size SUV holds three rows of seats, and can accommodate eight passengers.

Interior Features
In the 2003 Lexus LX 470, both the second and third rows of seats are split and fold down, providing a copious amount of cargo room. Standard interior features include a DVD player, steering wheel audio controls, and separate rear audio controls. There is also an AM/FM/cassette 6-disc CD changer, power steering, cruise control, and air conditioning with climate controls in both the front and the rear of the vehicle. This SUV is trimmed with wood, and furnished with leather upholstery. Its steering wheel is also wrapped with leather, while its front bucket seats are heated and power-controlled, and equipped with lumbar adjustment on the driver side. There is a compass, a trip computer, and an outside temperature display.

An option that is sure to be popular is the rear-seat DVD entertainment system. A navigation system with voice control is also an option on the 2003 Lexus LX 470.

Exterior Features
Rain-sensing wipers are a standard feature on the 2003 Lexus LX 470, as are 18-inch alloy wheels, running boards, and rear privacy glass. A power sunroof is also standard. Options on this SUV include a roof rack, and a rear spoiler.

The engine inside the Lexus LX 470 is a 4.7-litre V8, which produces 235 hp at 4800 rpm, and 320 lbs-ft of torque at 3400 rpm. This SUV performs exceptionally in all conditions, thanks to its all-wheel drive system with low-range gearing, limited-slip center differential, and limited-slip rear differential. Its Adaptive Variable Suspension system provides driver-adjustable shock absorbers and ride height, enhancing an already smooth ride.

Safety and Security
Safety reaches new heights with the night-vision system now available on the 2003 Lexus LX 470. An anti-skid/traction control is a standard safety feature on this SUV, as are anti-lock 4-wheel disc brakes, front torso airbags, and first and second row curtain side airbags.
