I looked hard for a comfortable, 7 seat, safe, luxury vehicle for family and work. RangeRover, CayenneTurbo were the competing vehicles if I could work with a five-seater. Benz GL and BMW X5 are not as plush with reliability. However in the seven seater range, there is no other competition for this vehicle. It has excellent power for its size, comfortably able to pass rapidly at highway speeds and good torque at take-off. It has more body roll than my old LexusGX470 with KDSS. However, when you push it on cornering and challenging courses, it is sure-footed. Ride is quiet. The interior is lexus high end sedans plush. Technology and off-road features are impressive
Lexus leather, Mark Levinson audio. Copies CDs to onboard hard disc automatically and looks up the track names. Power folding side view mirrors, keyless start, hidden tow hitch with hardware included. Various cameras.
Needs linetic dynamic stability system from GX to completely eliminate body roll. Full feature iPod interface. Deeper third row seat wells, although medium size adults do okay because of power-sliding 2nd row seats.
