The first generation of GX470 made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in January 2002 as a 2003 model and the sales of GX470 begins in November 2002. GX470 is assembled in Japan: Tahara, Aichi (Tahara plant) alongside the Land Cruiser Prado. Developed in 1999, it followed the steps of the J120 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in 1997. Designed by Shoichi Fujiyoshi, GX470 shared its layout with the Toyota 4Runner which is equipped with the parts of rear air suspension, while Adaptive Variable Suspension and Downhill Assist Control are added. AVS will allow users to make continuous adjustments of damper firmness while DAC modulated descents down slopes.
GX470 is powered by a 4.7-liter, 32-valve, four-cam 2UZ-FE V8 engine parts which could be originally rated at 175 kW (235 hp) at 4,800 rpm and 434 N·m (320 lb-ft) of torque at 3,400 rpm.

The interior offered users two rows of seating, while it provided a third row as an option to allow 8 passengers to be carried. It is noted that the third row was tight with only 630 mm (24.9 in) of legroom. GX470 also offered a GA Mark Levinson audio system along with a Rear Seat Entertainment System. Standard features included parts of the side-opening rear tailgate and so on.
In 2003, for the 2004 model year, upgrading had been made in the GX 470's transmission. It is changed to a sealed unit with no dipstick. Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) which had been an option then became available as a late-year addition. KDSS was freed and the vehicle's stabilizer bars were adjusted for greater articulation, which allowed the wheels to move with less restriction over uneven terrain, and used parts of the front and rear hydraulic pressure-sensing valves and larger stabilizer bars to reduce body roll during on-road conditions. Progress was also made in safety upgrading for 2004, including a roll-sensing feature for the side curtain airbags, a tire pressure monitoring system, and an optional rear backup camera system.
