The 2009 Lexus GX 470: Capable, indulgent mid-size luxury SUV delivers memorable moments of adventure on and off the road



    TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - Canadians wondering whether they can leverage
full-size rugged capability while enjoying a graciously indulgent driving
experience have found the answer in the Lexus GX 470 - the mid-size luxury SUV
that proves it's possible to be on top of both worlds at once.
    "Canadians seeking a no-compromise SUV that features exceptional towing
capability, off-road readiness and a vehicle with refined manners can find it
all in the GX 470. The remarkable ride quality, quiet acceleration, and a
generous, luxurious and versatile cabin are just a few of the reasons why the
GX 470 is an easy choice," said Tony Wearing, Managing Director of Lexus in
Canada. "This year, the Lexus GX 470 is even more appealing, with more
attractive pricing on the fully-equipped Ultra Premium Package model."
    The GX 470 returns with a powerful and proven 4.7 litre V8 that delivers
up to 263 horsepower, 323 lb-ft of torque, and a towing capacity of 6,500
pounds. Lexus technologies like full-time four-wheel-drive, Vehicle Stability
Control (VSC), Limited-Slip Centre Differential and Active Traction Control
(A-TRAC) help drivers navigate almost any surface - from snow-covered to
rock-strewn - while front and rear Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) systems
provide a remarkably comfortable ride.
    Every GX 470 features a wealth of comfort and convenience features,
including: A 10-way power adjustable and heated driver's seat, an instrument
cluster that includes an altimeter, outside temperature gauge and barometer,
power windows with auto up/down function on all windows, a power
tilting/telescoping steering wheel, power door locks with keyless entry, power
moon roof, cruise control, and more. Those looking for the ultimate in luxury
can order their GX 470 with the Ultra Premium Package, which adds: A DVD-based
navigation system with back-up camera, an upgraded 5.1-channel audio system
which includes an in-dash six-disc DVD changer, a rear seat DVD entertainment
system with two sets of wireless headphones, and more.
    The 2009 Lexus GX 470 is now on sale across Canada, with a manufacturer's
suggested retail price starting at $57,800 for the Premium package, and a
suggested starting price of $64,200 for models equipped with the Ultra Premium
Package.
