    Lexus GX

    Note: There are some Images to illustrate for this post. See full post at Lexus|Lexus Cars|Lexus Models|Lexus 2008|Lexus USA|Lexus Overview .

    The Lexus GX 470 is a mid-size luxury SUV sold in North American markets by Toyota's luxury division, Lexus. The GX was introduced as a 2003 model in November 2002. The GX was released at the same time as the now-defunct Lincoln Aviator, another of its competitors. In the Lexus lineup, the GX 470 is situated between the entry-level luxury crossover RX and the premium full-size LX.

    The Lexus GX 470 is powered by a 4.7 L, 32-valve, four-cam V8 2UZ-FE engine with 270 hp (201 kW) at 5,400 rpm and 330 ftlbf (447 Nm) of torque at 3,400 rpm. This is one of the largest engines that has ever been put into a Lexus. The vehicle is built at Lexus' Tahara plant in Japan. It is a rebadged deluxe version of the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado sold in Asia, Australia, and Europe. Available exclusively in the North American market, the Lexus GX is touted as a competent contender for serious off-roading while being civilized enough for everyday driving.

    The GX 470 has a welded steel body, an electronically controlled five-speed automatic transmission, and a four-wheel drive system. The GX interior offers a place for up to eight passengers with three rows of seating, although the third row is relatively tight with only 24 inches of legroom for its two passengers. A side-opening rear tailgate is standard. Other features include built-in mudguards, water-repellent glass, integrated illuminated running boards, and a roof rack with crossbars. The premium Mark Levinson audio system and a rear seat DVD entertainment system are available as options.

    The Lexus GX has won various awards including 4-Wheeler of the Year in 2003 and 2004 from 4x4 Magazine. J.D. Power and Associates named the GX 470 the highest ranked premium luxury SUV in initial quality in 2005 , and Kelley Blue Book gave the GX 470 its Best Resale Value Award in 2006.

    For 2007, Lexus added a mp3/WMA auxiliary port for iPod or similar media players, Bluetooth connectivity, and the upgraded Lexus fifth-generation navigation system with enhanced resolution, additional points of interest, and over 100 voice commands.

    A new off-roading performance option introduced in 2007 is the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), which frees and adjusts the GX's stabilizer bars so that each wheel can move with less restriction over uneven terrain. This system uses front and rear hydraulic pressure-sensing valves and larger stabilizer bars to reduce body roll during off-road conditions, while retaining smooth ride quality on regular road surfaces. In the U.S., this suspension setup is part of the "Sport Package." Interior trim choices include golden or dark Bird's Eye Maple trim, metallic accents, and ivory or dark gray leather.

    For 2008, Lexus added a new dark metallic finish on the front grille, chrome roof rack rails, a liquid graphite finish on the standard 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome finished front audio speaker grilles, and revised turn signal lights. Brown walnut wood trim is a new interior option. Salsa Red Pearl and Desert Sage Metallic exterior paint are new for 2008. The GX meets all the requirements to make it a certified Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle II (ULEV II).
