i wanted it on, so next time, better chance of selling the vehicle hopefully.

what i didnt know, and maybe others here as well, Luxury edition already has navig and all features standard, so really only options you can add are

driver support package (which apparently now comes with ML premium audio) - he showed me the sheet

ML audio by itself.

rear seat entertainment.
+ other port added minor options (wheel locks, etc..)
Yes, I heard the same thing, when you order the driver support package, it comes with ML. I have the ML on my Luxury model, but I don't have the driver support package,. I didn't want to wait 3 months and I received the first GX at my dealer. Congratulations, you should try to sell it on EBay..or Auto Trader. I don't think they're offering you enough on your trade.

Carmax is worth a try. They will likely offer more than any lex dealer and the process should be simple.

This is exactly what my salesman told me. Dealers will use black book to buy trade in cars. I took my car to carmax and have them appraisal. 2 days later I sold my car on Craigslist for 5500 more than CL offered.

There shouldn't be any change at all since the GX will cease to exist after 2015. I heard it will be morphed into a 7 passenger crossover in 2016.
I would be interested in the new model if it still has a touchscreen but it probably won't.

this is all just hearsay. the gx will not be discontinued imho. it will likely be crossover based. Our current gen GX may still be in high demand due to its BOF structure.
What do you think will happen with LX?

I think the LX will remain as is, at least for awhile. I expect it will eventually evolve also and become smaller and more fuel efficient.
I have the 2014 LX and previously 2009 and then 2013 RX. I traded the 2013 because of the RT. I prefer a touch screen.

I don't think North America (and this is mostly where these rumors originated from) has any say in the future of the GX because NA is not GX's primary market and a unibody SUV will likely be laughed at in the Middle East and other countries where GX primary market currently is.

A more likely outcome is they stop selling GX in NA and replace it with TX -- there is little market for real SUVs in NA, a "lifted sedan" will do just fine.

All this means is you import 3rd gen GX from overseas and drive a really unique car ;-)

I suppose you will be able to buy a Toyota Prado from Guatemala, the nearest country.

Good luck trying to get it in the US if you are looking for the diesel version. It has to be at least 25 years old to be at least considered for import. The only other Prado option is a 6 cylinder which would be a downgrade IMHO.

Hey T4Fun,

We ordered our Luxury GX a week before you did and we are taking delivery tomorrow. We had to order because we need the rear entertainment. We skipped the driver assist package. But, if you don't even have the VIN yet does that mean that mean it is not even scheduled for production? I figured yours would have been out of the port by now and in transit.

Anyway, good luck with your truck.

My dealer said it would take about 4 months. IT has driver assist package on it. Kinda sucks to wait this long. If it doesnt get made soon i will probably back out of deal and reorder in MY 2015 some point.

You will really like the RSE, especially if you connect something on HDMI.
