Default 2010 GX460 "quick review from a LX470 owner"

The GX460 is amazing, I used to have a 1999 LX470 that I treated like hell and when the new lx570 came out I was so "sad" because it turned into a true luxury suv " mall cruiser" but the GX460 sticks to its Land Cruiser Prado Roots, it is a true land cruiser!

Driving wise, the suspension is amazing, very nimble, handles like my Porsche Cayenne S, really, I am not even joking, the interior is amazing from any other SUV aside from the LX570. The navigation system is awesome, from real time traffic - checking stocks, I couldn't imagine how fun a navigation system could be!

The construction of the Car is solid, even more so than my LX470!

The car is a true Land Cruiser Prado, once you slap on some BF Goodwrench A/T 265/65/R18 Tires on it it will be perfect!

I'm so excited about getting mine, trading the GS350 in for one!

In a couple months you will see it on your local off-road trail, haha

Please explain how the LX570 is not a Land Cruiser underneath....PLEASE


Just and FYI, the suspension of the LX570 is identical to the Land Cruiser is certain regions of the world. Some Land Cruiser in some regions use the KDSS suspension while other regions (although rare) use the AVS...

Please explain?

Because its so big that it won't fit on a trail, the UZJ-100 was huge also but not has big has a 200 series Land Cruiser!

Angles Crest Forest, a 2010 LX570 or Land Cruiser will not pass 2 miles into the trail, its very wide, it is a land cruiser but not a true hearted land cruiser, very top heavy also I might add!

The GX460 sticks too Land Cruiser Roots, Small and Nimble for agility on the trail, big enough for your travel needs but not oversized!

I never said "it wasn't a Land Cruiser but that its a "horrible version of a Land Cruiser while the GX460 is a better version of how the LX570 should have been." sorry for offending you!

LX570 Mall Cruiser, haha, never thought I would say that about any Land Cruiser but it is what it is!

I personally think the LX570 looks phenomenal, especially from the back. Something about those tail lights make it look rather regal and elegant.

in my opinion it looks far better than its predecessors.

I'm awaiting arrival of a new 2010 LX to replace my 2004 GX. That describes how I like the LX
