Default does GX460 have speed sensitive steering?

burning question ive asked for years. I dont think it does, but KOZ was convinced it does.
To me steering was quite loose at all speeds.

Absolutely. It's really pronounced on mine at highway soeeds. My 4Runner Limited had it too and it felt the same.

Is it on all 460s ? I have not noticed a different feel on my Base model.

Here is a very extensive list of features base vs. premium in cars.com. It says it's standard on both.

Still not feeling it

Is it just me? I would like to think that I am in tune with my GX by now and I do have a better feel with manual shifting but I can't recognize any change with adaptive steering .

Reef on it at 20MPH then 60MPH. I tested it a while back and really noticed it
