Not a lost to them by any means.
Lame. Please lay off the insults, for once, unless you want to write your age for us all to see.

If the GX is a good SUV, then it's good.

The GX470 is a Prado with a 4.7 engine and AVS.....Tundra had the 4.7....and Sequoia has the AVS...

Land Cruiser and Sequoia are totally different products. It could be done with the GX and Prado but there really is no point...

Body cladding is so last decade. You're right!

The next GX will be awesome just like the previous one. I'm sure the next GX will have the turn signals on the side few mirrors and a push button start/stop which adheres to L-Finesse and maybe a side few camera as well just the LX 570. The last model to receive L-Finesse is the SC...

this one is so much more modern looking than the current one. Body cladding looks tacky. it literally looks glued on.



people don't like change..... despite voting for Obama.

The thing with body cladding is that while it may not be in tune with the trend of sleek bodies and curves, even on SUVs, it serves a purpose.

I used to offroad in my 4Runner and there were a few times that I scratched a fender flare or one of the pieces on the bottom of the door. I just removed it and had the scratches filled and then repainted. It never cost me more than $200 to fix. THAT'S the beauty in body cladding.

Scratch a door or fender flare in something like the LX 570 or this LC Prado, and you're looking at a hefty repair bill for signficant body work. Additionally, Lexus' own research has shown that many GX owners use their utes for towing and moderate off road use. While not necessary for towing, body cladding is a big plus for anyone who ventures off the pavement.

front is like Prado with bigger lights, back is ug. like rav 4 only weirder. and the rear window is tiny because of that black frame. why is that black frame necessary?

You guys like this?? They're hidious I mean look at it..The thing has a beauty and beast under bite, it has knots on the headlights like they've been punched in a Tyson fight, that grill belongs on somthing John Deere. You guys are really dissapointing me. In fact both Lexus and Acura have really been putting out some really lame designs as of late.

Not sure if I like this one. VX trim usually looks different from the JDM ones(such as TX, or TZ).
