I test drove almost everything out there... nothing could compare to the GX 470. It is a reliable and safe SUV. I think it has the best Luxury and features when compared to the SUVs I mentioned. The one thing that made me buy GX 470 was the Sports suspension (KDSS), makes body roll almost non-existant. I have put over 6000 miles on SUV and never had any regrets or wanted any other SUV.
Sports Suspension (KDSS)!!!Must have option. Reclining rear seats, RES and wireless headphones, bluetooth. Lexus service is just awesome.
Stereo should have iPod connection, Navigation screen should be better. KDSS should be a standard feature. I would consider a Hybrid GX 470 if gas mileage was significantly better. Front seats could have more leg support. Make 3 row seats an option and not included in most option packages.
