By far the best SUV ever made,
especially if you care about luxury.
Compared to my previous Range Rover
(and even Landcruiser), the LX470 is
simply amazing in its ability to
deliver quiet, luxurious, reliable
performance. It is also beautiful and
stylish, despite being around since
1998. Off-road capability (if you
dare) is astounding and as good as any
stock 4x4 out there. On-road
performance is sumptuous, smooth,
quiet, relaxed. Driving the LX470
just makes you feel like the world is
a more peaceful place. Security in
snow and off-road is first-rate.
Gorgeous interior, tasteful wood trim.
Variable ride height is nice for off-
roading. Split tailgate is great --
gives a nice clean place to sit and
put on ski boots after driving through
mud/snow (much better than lift-up
tailgate). HID headlights add
distinctive look. Very quiet!
Rain-sensing wiper would be nice.
Steering-wheel mounted radio controls
would also be nice, as would a heated
steering wheel. Another 100 horsepower
would be great. Gas mileage could be
better, but in this league, they are
