Great overall but really thirsty!

Lexus just has a feel and style that can't be beat. The GX470 is a great overall vehicle but has terrible fuel mileage. I average around 13 MPG. The ride is exceptional on highways but a little top heavy around town and on curvy country roads. It is as quiet as you would expect a Lexus to be. Towing is amazing with the Class V hitch. The Mark Levinson sound system is absolutely incredible.
Excellent overall vehicle.
Good luck getting the voice activated system to work. I believe I speak well but haven't gotten a single command to work on that thing. Also, air conditioned seats would be appreciated. Loading longer items is a problem because the rear hatch swings out and the window does not raise or lower.
