Lexus has done well in kitting the 2009 GX470 out with a vast list of standard features. But—budget permitting—there’s also the chance to add some exceptional options.
Edmunds reports that the company has been quite generous in the features it offers: 17-inch alloy wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, heated outside mirrors, illuminated running boards, leather seating, heated power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, moon roof, power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and an 11-speaker stereo system with a six-disc in-dash CD changer and auxiliary audio jack for an MP3 player. Cars.com also reports that the Lexus GX 470 "powered front seats" and "an overhead console with an integrated HomeLink transmitter." And these are just the standard features available for the Lexus GX 470.
Kelley Blue Book notes that Lexus GX 470 buyers interested in driving performance "can put an enthusiast edge on handling with the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), available alone or as part of the Sport Package that also includes interior and exterior trim enhancements." Additional features for the 2009 Lexus GX 470 are "the optional navigation system features voice activation, an improved high-resolution display and an input jack for connecting external devices," according to Edmunds. Should the buyer opt for the navigation system, a substantial upgrade to the stereo system comes with it. Other available options for this 2009 Lexus include rear air conditioning, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, and a folding 50/50 third-row seat. MotherProof is less than enchanted with one aspect of the Lexus GX 470: "as nice as it is to have that [optional] DVD player, this one is hard to figure out," and the CD changer is inconveniently located in the glove compartment.
