Third generation (YYYY–YYYY)

Second generation (YYYY–YYYY)

First Generation/Origins (YYYY–2007)

The Lexus LX470 has a 4.7-liter, four-cam V8 engine with four valves per cylinder. The LX has a welded steel body and a capacity to seat eight passengers. The LX replaced the Toyota Land Cruiser for the Canadian market, because most automobile companies (except for GM, Ford and Chrysler) couldn't sell rebadged models in Canada. The real reason is that big expensive SUV's don't fare well with Canada. And having a Landcruiser and LX470 in the same market makes matters worse.

The LX470 shares the same floorplan and most body panels with the Toyota Land Cruiser. The current LX470 differs from the Land Cruiser only in its front optics and a more luxurious interior.

Despite the fact that the LX470 is one of the most expensive SUVs, Toyota said it would halt production of the Lexus LX for 2006 due to slow sales. A completely redesigned LX 570 is scheduled to premiere at the New York International Auto Show in 2007.

2006 Upgrades This time the LX470 got an added 45 hp boosting the total to 275 hp (was 230 hp). The engine provided VVT-i (variable valve timing). The car also got LED rear tail lamps, new grille and redesigned wheel spokes.

2003 Upgrades For the 2003 model year, the Lexus LX470 got a interior refesh, new grille, redesigned wheel rims, and a 5 speed gear gox (last one was 4 speed).

Worldwide

If the vehicle is sold in other markets worldwide, then this is the section to mention that information. Also, mention if the <MODEL> goes by another name in these other markets.

Design quirks and oddities

Refer to any pop-culture tidbits about the vehicle in this section.

Awards

List out notable awards that the model has recieved while in production. Boldface the company or orgainization that gives out the award, and Italicize the name of the award.
