My guess is because they've put a bunch of music in there. Would've been nice if there was a version without the sound tracks as some footage is nice.

It's simply a lower displacement option. 4.6L V8 is a primary engine used in a Land Cruiser 200 (the big one) sold in the Middle East and Australia so rest assured it's a very well built truck engine...

And LX570 uses a lower grade engine from Tundra as well? I'm not sure I understand how 1UR-FE V8 engine used in the GX is a lower grade engine compared to a V6 used in the RX?

This is how it should be. Locked center diff simply means the torque gets split 50/50 between front and rear. Since the front/rear differentials still remain open there is no issue with driving at...
