RX 330 Model Details

2005

RX2005

The 2005 RX 330 takes the decidedly rugged origin of the Luxury Utility Vehicle and enhances it with state-of-the art technology and indulgence. The RX has an available Dynamic Laser Cruise Control [1] that adjusts your speed to maintain a pre-set following distance. It has available rain-sensing intermittent windshield wipers that automatically adjust depending on the amount of rainfall. There's even an available backup camera [2] to help guide you when driving in reverse.

On the luxury side, the RX offers its driver nothing short of the smooth, powerful ride you've come to expect from Lexus. To entertain the passengers, there's an available Lexus DVD Rear-Seat Entertainment System. Even hauling cargo is made easier with an available power rear door with remote keyless entry.

Finally, since perhaps the greatest luxury of all is peace of mind, the RX comes with an abundance of advanced safety features. There's front seat-mounted side airbags with a larger protection area than a conventional side airbag. There's also a driver's Supplemental Restraint System which deploys the airbag in one of three speeds. There's even a driver's knee airbag [3]. Because sometimes the most important features are the ones you hope never to use.

[1] Dynamic Laser Cruise Control was designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Please see your Owner's Manual for important cautions and instructions. [2] 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. [3] The Lexus driver's and front passenger's airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, driver's-knee airbag and side curtain airbags are Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS). The driver's and front passenger's airbags and driver's-knee airbag 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 and side curtain airbags are designed to deploy in certain types of severe side-impact collisions. 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 rearward-facing child seats 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. Vehicle complies with "advanced airbag" requirements of FMVSS 208. [4] 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. [5] Lexus' Tire Pressure Monitor 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. See your Owner's Manual for details [6] 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. [7] 132 watts at 0.1% THD. [8] On vehicles equipped with the available Lexus DVD Navigation System, the compass is displayed on the navigation screen. [9] 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 System Owner's Manual and your Lexus dealer for further details. [10] 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. [11] Mark Levinson is a registered trademark of Harman International Industries. [12] Continuous average power, all channels driven, at 0.01% THD; 20-20,000 Hz. [13] 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. [14] Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution. [15] 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.
