Here is one of the best ways to tell if your GX 460 is the 9700 (base model) or the 9710 (luxury model).

The 9700 comes basically with every option a-la carte, whereas the 9710 only has one or two options available as accessories.

The BIGGEST difference is if you drive a 9700 model GX, you only have two switches to the right of the shifter. (DAC - downhill assist control, and Transfer case H4 L4.)

If you have a 9710, you have those mentioned above AND Height control adjustment & Sport/Comfort dampening switch.



VS BASE MODEL:

Just curious, how would you compare your GX and LS in terms of ride over crappy pavement, expansion joints, etc?

The GX handles bad pavement better than my LS. When I had the factory Dunlop tires on my LS the ride was terrible. I replaced them with Michelins and it rides much better. On the highway I prefer the LS over the GX. If I had to pick just one vehicle, I would own the GX over my LS.

I just test drove the '14 yesterday and I forgot to check that out. I checked the new nav stuff and the manual rear folding seats. I really only wanted to see if the brake was still hard to hold down at a stop but couldn't really tell. I will have to get my wife to test it out since she drives the GX more than I do.

The mirrors are only electric on the luxury model for 2014.

Power folding electrochromatic mirrors are part of the optional BSM/RCTA system for $800 on the Premium Package models. My incoming has it.

Okay thanks, it will take 2 weeks to get to the port from Japan.

Really? Maybe from Japan to LA, but Japan to Jacksonville would take longer I think.

Even best case if it comes into LA in 2 weeks, it would take at least another week to unload and ship it across the country. So that puts it back to 3 weeks again.

I am a little disappointed that such a simple "touch" is not part of the "luxury" package! My 2007 GL Mercedes had that!

wat. The Luxury version has the power folding electrochrom mirrors standard. It is part of an $800 option pack on the Premium model, and also includes BSM/RCTA.

I don't know if they're auto fold like on my LS 460 and even the RX. I will find out tomorrow, I have to take my LS in for service and will see my car in person. It take two weeks to get to the port in Portland, OR from Japan is what my dealer told me. My vehicle was shipped by train to Kansas City and then on a transport truck to St. Louis. It took two weeks by train and truck to make it to my dealer.

I only had the auto for a day and had to leave it in my second home until this Sunday. Perhaps, I need to read the manual... I may find an answer faster by emailing my sales rep.
