2007 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
A solid, reliable, comfortable vehicle that, while missing some of the fluff of similar vehicles, does everything pretty well. No electric parking brake, a simple key, a cable controlled shift lever, hydraulic suspension... simple controls that do the job, and enhance reliability. I've owned Range Rover, X5, and Cayenne, and it was nice to get back to basics. Hope the new one doesn't succumb to electronic complication.
Simplicity of basic operation, including the nav, audio, climate control and Bluetooth. Rear seats are easy to fold, and it has a tailgate.
Sat radio should be factory standard, better OEM tires, Xenon headlights.
