GX 470 Model Details


The 2005 GX luxury utility vehicle may be mid-sized, but there's abundant luxury, from the golden bird's-eye maple and leather interior trim to a Lexus Rear-Seat Audio System (RSAS). Options include the Lexus DVD Rear-Seat Entertainment System (RSES) and the Mark Levinson® [1] audio system. And available third-row seating ensures your entourage is always close at hand. The GX body-on-frame construction was precisely engineered to reduce noise and vibration, while the available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) promises a smoother ride on any terrain. And should you get lost during your journey (and actually want to get back), just follow the pleasant voice of the available Lexus voice-activated DVD Navigation System [2] to your next adventure. The GX is built to take you just about anywhere and sees to it that you arrive there in extraordinary luxury.

[1] Mark Levinson is a registered trademark of Harman International Industries. [2] The Lexus DVD Navigation System is designed to assist in locating an address or point of interest. Discrepancies may be encountered between the system and your actual location. Changes in street names, road closures, traffic flow or other road system changes may affect the accuracy of the mapping software. Rely upon your common sense to decide whether or not to follow a specified route. Detailed coverage not available in every city. Optional periodic geographic updates available at an additional cost. See your Navigation Owner's Manual and your Lexus dealer for further details. [3] Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions. [4] TORSEN® is a registered trademark of Zexel Torsen, Inc. [5] Lexus Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details. [6] Downhill Assist Control (DAC) is a complex electronic and mechanical system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control and speed on steep downhill descents. It is not a substitute for safe driving judgment and practices. Factors including speed, grade, surface conditions and driver input can all affect whether DAC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details. [7] Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) is a complex electronic and mechanical system designed to help minimize backward rolling on steep ascents. It is not a substitute for safe driving judgment and practices. Factors including grade, surface conditions and driver input can all affect whether HAC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details. [8] The Lexus driver's, front passenger's, front seat-mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags are Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS). The driver and front passenger airbags are designed to deploy in severe (usually frontal) collisions where the magnitude and duration of the forward deceleration of the vehicle exceed the design threshold level. The side airbags and side curtain airbags are designed to deploy in certain types of severe side-impact collisions. On the GX 470, the side curtain airbags are Roll-Sensing Curtain Airbags (RSCA) and are designed to deploy at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral G-force. In all other accidents, the airbags will not deploy. To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seatbelt, sit upright in the middle of the seat, and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of a deploying airbag SRS may cause serious injury or death. Please see your Owner's Manual for further instructions. [9] Lexus' Tire Pressure Monitor System alerts driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the Monitor System. See your Owner's Manual for details. [10] 124 watts at 0.1% THD; 20-20,000 Hz. [11] The backup camera, available only with the navigation system, does not provide a comprehensive view of the entire rear area of the vehicle. You should also look around outside your vehicle and use your mirrors to confirm rearward clearance. Cold weather will limit effectiveness and view may become cloudy. [12] Continuous average power, all channels driven, at 0.01% THD; 20-20,000 Hz. [13] Accessory CrossBars are not recommended for luggage. [14] While there are several Bluetooth® phones in the market, Lexus recommends the phones listed on its Web site because they have been tested and meet Lexus' high standards for voice quality and functionality. Note that the recommendation of Lexus is not a warranty of the performance for any phone and that some problems may occur with any type of handset based on the service coverage available in your area. [15] Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up properly and you have all necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and review all instructions and cautions from your trailer hitch manufacturer and Lexus vehicle Owner's Manual. Note that the maximum amount you can tow depends on the total weight of any cargo, occupants and optional equipment in the vehicle. [16] Measurement of vehicle in Rear Adjustable Height Control (RAHC) Normal setting. [17] These performance capacity figures are for comparison only, and were obtained with prototype vehicles by professional drivers using special safety equipment and procedures. Do not attempt.
