Having owned a 1996 Land Cruiser, 2003 Prado and now 2012 GX 460, I assure you I've experienced this issue in all of these cars particularly that 1996 LC.

On the issue of paddle travel, am certain it has nothing to do with off-roading, but rather to do with countering the excusive nose dive during braking events. Emergency braking in Lexus GX 460 or even LX 570 feels dramatic when I compare it with my old 2005 Range Rover. Even more dramatic/hilarious when EBD+Pre-collision is in action, the whole car squats; absolutely no where close nor gives confidence as it's German rivals or the land rovers do.

It's a classic issue in most of Toyota's SUVs. You may get used to it .. but certainly in a stop n go traffic you will need to always keep the extra distance.

I just installed new front rotors and pads. That seemed to help somewhat.

I just got a 2010 GX460 and this is the first thing that I noticed. I drive in stop and go traffic and my foot has actually been getting tired from having to press so far onto the break pedal to make sure the car doesn't move. Huge difference from a 2007 GX470. Did anyone find a fix for this to make the brakes more "sensitive?"

It may be the nature of the beast as I do notice more pedal travel than I am accustomed to. How many miles do you have? I'm gonna change my pads since I think mine did a lot of urban driving with low mileage and high pad wear. You may also want to get your brake fluid flushed if higher mileage. These aren't going to give you a magic bullet fix but may help.

I don't know if this is because i was going from a performance car (s4) to this SUV but i noticed the brake issue with my 2017 as well. It creeps forward unless I firmly press the break all the way through. Much more travel, I think this is something I just need to get used to.

I noticed this too on my 2010. I stop, foot on brake, then after a few second it creeps up. I recall that most of these times I either have AC on or on AUTO which could rev the engine a bit higher when it kicks in. I'm going to turn off AC and see.
