New Lexus GX470 4x4 for North America Only

Tue, 08 Jan 2002
For the North American market only, the new Lexus GX470 will be positioned between the RX300 and the premium-luxury LX470 SUVs in size, price and capability. The V8-powered GX470 will arrive in Lexus dealerships in North America in January 2003 with an annual sales target that will exceed 20,000 units. There are no plans for the Lexus GX470 to enter the European market. Based on a new global SUV platform, the Lexus GX470 will combine the luxury specification and workmanship of a Lexus saloon with full-time four-wheel drive, high-tech suspension for responsive handling and a smooth ride, plus the company's latest safety technology. This new SUV includes seating for up to eight and a factory-installed DVD rear-seat entertainment system. The GX470, available with five-speed automatic transmission, will share the 4.7 litre V8 engine producing 235 horsepower and 320lb ft of torque (preliminary figure) and full-time four-wheel drive system from the larger LX470 model. The full complement of dynamic handling technology includes anti-lock brakes (ABS), Active TRAC (traction control), Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD). A new Downhill Assist Control (DAC) system will provide additional control for off-road driving on steep descents. Passive safety features include dual front and side airbag supplemental restraint systems and side curtain airbags.
