Likewise. I am not looking forward to a future with less and less body-on-frame, stout SUVs, like the GX460s, Land Cruisers, LX 570s, Sequoias, Tundras, 4Runners, FJs, and Tacomas. Long live the body-on-frame.
I have the first gen GX (470) and was planning to get the 2nd gen GX (460). Went and test drove the redesigned Highlander, to our surprise the extra trunk space with the 3rd row seating up made our decision so we're waiting on a 2015 Highlander.
I drive the GX everyday now to work so I can keep the mileage on my GS low. Starting to miss the old girl already.
I am on my third Land Cruiser...1991/1994 and current 2004 that has 167K miles and counting. Would like to lower the $$$$$$$ for new and the GX460 is kind of like a 3/4 Land Cruiser. I will either suck it up and buy a new Land Cruiser or keep my eye on GX460 plans and buy one before they shift to unibody.
Right now trying to decide between ES350/GS350 and 2015/2016 model.
