Check out Edmunds (www.edmunds.com). They do a better than average job of capturing changes by model year in their "reviews." Each model year gets its own review.

WTB: GX470 all-weather mats, black

Prefer Lexus OEM (yes, those "dangerous crash inducing ones" - lol) or Weathertech.

NIB or like new condition.
