Default Blind Spot Monitoring and "Croc" Leather Seat Questions

Hi All,

I am looking at replacing my 2006 GX with the 2nd gen GX. I would prefer to buy used, but may need to look at the 2015's to get what I want. I have some questions regarding the differences between the 2010-2013 vs. the 2014-2015 model years.

I really like the blind spot monitoring safety feature. What year was this introduced?

I don't like the "croc" -like leather on the 2014 Premium seats. When did this come out? Any idea if this will be continued with the 2015 model?

Thank you

Yes the croc leather continues for 2015 on the premium. You can go luxury which is nice and smooth or get a base version which is Nulux leather like very durable smooth with no croc look to it.

Really not sure on the blind spot monitoring question as I do not have it on my 2014 base version.

Blind spot monitor was added in 2014. I have it as well as the cross traffic alert which is also very helpful when backing out of a parking space or driveway.

Thanks for those replies. Was the croc leather new in the 2014MY?

Yes, the best leather is on the Luxury model starting in 2014. Before that, they all had the same leather.

I thought from 2010-2013, there were 2 leather options, base and semi-aniline. Isn't the leather in the 2014 Luxury the semi-aniline or is it really something totally new?

It's the semi aniline, nothing different than my 2010 premium.
