I have been researching for a perfect SUV with 3rd row capacity. GX 470 is by far the best of all. It drives so smooth like a luxury sedan. I am not an off road person. The only option I did not get is sport package. The vehicle is stylish outside and luxurous inside. The engine is not the most powerful but more than enough. Good towing capacity. It beats all comparables hands down.
Touch screen navigation system is my favorite. ML sound system is not perfect but great. I am still learning all the great features.
Bigger size tires, skip the tape drive should provide RCA or some mp3 device input instead. Larger LCD screen size for DVD system.
