2003 Lexus GX 470 Overview

Based on 2 reviews
In 2003 Lexus introduced their third luxury SUV offering: the GX 470. This new model was based on the rugged Toyota 4Runner, providing Lexus a midsize option between the car-like RX and Land Cruiser-based LX 470. Although the GX was not billed as the flagship Lexus SUV, it came equipped with additional off road features that were absent from the LX. The GX 470 was fitted with the latest off-road management system and adjustable suspension.
The GX 470 utilized the sam power plant as the larger LX. The 4.7 liter V-8 made 235 horsepower and provided 320 pound-feet of torque. Since this 4Runner-based SUV was over 500 pounds lighter than the LX, this power was quite sufficient. Off the line, the GX reached 60 mph in just under eight seconds. The lighter weight aided in braking as well: the GX returned to a stop from 60 mph in just 130.8 ft. The GX 470 didn't have much over the LX with regard to fuel economy, with gas mileage observed at 15/18 mpg.
This new sport utility seemed to be what many former RX and LX drivers had been waiting for. While it was less nimble than the RX and slightly less spacious and luxurious than the LX, the GX was the most loyal to its SUV classification. It is built upon the traditional body-on-frame truck design, and features full time 4WD. Other features like a two-speed transfer case and a hill descent feature allow drivers to confidently abandon the comfort of paved surfaces.
