The Lexus of Land Cruisers
Luxury SUVs, are some of the most versatile and useful vehicles sold. They can be just as luxurious as a premium sedan, yet they also offer plenty of interior room, weather-beating four-wheel drive and rugged suspensions to take on anything from broken pavement to challenging off-road trails. The Lexus LX 470 has been a perennial favorite since its introduction in 1998. This example is painted in beautiful Cypress Pearl, A color that was offered only in 2006 and 07.
Rich interior materials, tight construction, balanced on- and off-road capability and a long menu of safety and luxury features. Though there are now many choices when it comes to luxury SUVs, the 2006 Lexus LX 470 is a solid choice. It does just about everything you could ask and, given Lexus' reputation for building very reliable vehicles, should provide many years of trouble-free service.
This Lexus LX 470 comes standard with a 4.7-liter V8 that produces 275 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Power is routed to all four wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission with low-speed gearing. Previously, the LX 470 could feel a bit underpowered when loaded with passengers and gear, but this year's power hike has largely negated this fault. Properly equipped, the LX 470 can tow a load up to 5,000 pounds.
Standard equipment includes four-wheel antilock disc brakes, front seat-mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags for front- and second-row occupants. To help avoid an accident, Lexus has fortified the brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and BrakeAssist. The Lexus LX 470 also includes a standard stability control system and, for 2006, a new tire-pressure monitoring system. The Lexus LX 470 has not been crash tested by the NHTSA nor the IIHS.
Ride and handling characteristics are as close to perfect as any large SUV has ever come. On the street, the ride is as smooth and buttery as you like, depending on which of the four modes you choose for the Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), which automatically adjusts shock absorber firmness according to driving style, road conditions and vehicle load. Even on challenging off-road trails composed of severe bumps and ruts, the 2006 Lexus LX 470 retains its compliant, forgiving ride quality.
You get a sense that no expense was spared in creating the LX 470's luxurious cabin. Indeed, the walnut wood trim is radiant in its luster and the perforated leather sumptuous in its suppleness. Materials used in the construction of the interior are generally of the highest quality. Three rows of seating come standard. The 60/40-split second row can be folded forward, and the 50/50-split rear bench can be removed entirely. So done, there is 90.4 cubic feet of cargo room available. Owner notes the steering wheel could be refurbished as there is wear on the leather.
