I thought AWD is synomymous to 4WD. Is there a difference?

By the way, since we bought the GX, my wife and I are in a constant competition as to who gets to drive it. Just like the TV commercial, forgot for which vehicle though, anyways the pilot is sadly the last resort.

There is a huge difference, here is a nice writeup: http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/...e_4WD_awd.html

Now, for the question, "is there a difference for you?". That would depends on what you are using truck for. If you don't know why you may need 4x4 low, then you probably much better with AWD... (As for me, one of the main reasons I got GX was 4x4 and KDSS).

This is an age old debate. Do you think our GX's have 4x4? 4wd? AWD?

I suppose having "low range" and a locker makes it a 4x4

But... in normal mode it has the same torsen center diff and therefore the same AWD system as our Audi S4, which is clearly AWD. So which is it?

He said that the GX would downsize its engine to the LS460 engine, change the 4WD to AWD, and make the overall dimensions smaller to make the vehicle more efficient (therefore losing the 4WD lever). He claimed that it would come out in late '09 as an '10 model. Again, not 100% positive this is true, but he claimed it was.

Sorry if this is a repost, I am just passing on what I learned.
If this holds true, I've never known a salesman to be so knowledgeable!

Ooh, thx for the link! Seems someone jumped the embargo...just a bit (the pic is too small to make out much). Interesting to hear of the premium packaging, Lexus has now added this higher-spec trim for more of its latest models.

Oh God, I saw the side profile of the Prado and i suspect the GX will look essentially identical in that stance. Not liking it.

At what time Monday is the embargo being lifted?

Would you also know if there is to be any live streaming of the GX's intro?

TIA

Just got this information emailed to me by my dealer:

Lexus will release a all-new 2010 GX 460 in late December or early January. Complete or finalized details have yet to be disclosed. Below you'll see preliminary info just in from the factory. If you would like to be included in my short list of individuals to be notified of changes and arrivals, let me know.

Late Breaking News Release:


The All-New 2010 GX 460 comes with a new 4.6L engine and more power (301 hp; 329 lb-ft torque). The new
six-speed automatic transmission also helps provide 13% better MPG than the previous GX, making it
the best-in-class V8 fuel economy and competitive with some six-cylinder models. In addition to this
progressive engine, the GX also brings with it some exciting new features all of which are standard for
the base model:

��
Power fold-flat third row
��
10 airbags (best-in-class)

��
Second row seatbelt pretensioners

��
Heated/Ventilated front seats (first in class)

��
Rear back-up camera with standard 4.2” screen (does not require Navigation)
Integrated XM
® Radio (90-day trial included), Bluetooth Multi-Media, and iPod-USB/MP3 Auxillary

��
Active front headrests

��
Significantly upgraded nine speaker audio

��
Electronic transfer case

��
Larger 18” wheels

��
Smart Access

��
Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System

Safety Connect™ (Complimentary one-year trial subscription.)

The GX is the “right-sized” and most compact (in length) SUV in its segment. The exterior reflects the
new L-finesse design aesthetic. The exterior also demonstrates some new key convenience and styling
features such as the flip-open rear glass hatch (for easier access to the cargo area), integrated rear door
handle, and new standard rear spoiler with hidden wiper. The GX color palette is also completely
revamped and includes two all-new exterior colors, Knight’s Armor (gray) and Claret Mica, and three
interior colors, Ecru, black, and Sepia (brand new brown).
The 2010 GX interior not only has the new standard power fold-flat third row, but access to the third row
has been made easier via the tilting and sliding 40/20/40 split second row seat. A new center console
design offers the driver more storage and functionality including easy to reach iPod and 12-volt outlets.
While the GX base model comes full of standard luxury amenities, Lexus has also developed a
“Premium” model which adds semi-aniline leather, HID with AFS, heated wood steering wheel, heated
second row outboard seats, power electrochromic exterior side mirrors with power retract, headlamp
cleaners, rear A/C, illuminated front scuff plates, rear air suspension, auto leveler, adaptive variable
suspension, and color keyed body side molding.

The 2010 GX will maintain a competitive value position versus the competition.

Thanks for the info, 94SC300TX. I'll email my local dealer and see when the truck will be available in Canada, and for how much. I think the new GX costs a bit more than the previous version, which sounds about right given the Japanese yen has gone up quite a bit this year.
