Seating for five people is standard, but the GX 470 can seat up to eight occupants when equipped with an optional third-row seat. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-upholstered seating and trim, power-operated front seats, an in-dash six-CD changer, a leather-trimmed power-adjustable steering wheel and an overhead console with an integrated HomeLink transmitter. For 2006, the parking brake gets leather stitching.

An optional DVD-based entertainment system features a high-resolution screen. Additional options include rear air conditioning, a Mark Levinson premium audio system and a DVD-based navigation system with a rearview camera. The Digital Lexus Link system, which connects the vehicle to a communications network for security and convenience assistance -- much like General Motors' OnStar is available for 2006. The service requires a paid subscription.
