<B>2002 Lexus GX470</B><P>Another Lexus SUV! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif"> Everything on the exterior is nice, except for the front. It kind of looks like a super-size RAV4.

Interior look's nice.I agree exterior ok except front.Suv's are too big and drink too much gas.But I am sure Lexus will sell all they build.

<P>The sad part is, few people I know who think they know enough about cars..actually didn't know that GS's headlight design as well as other subtle design bits were derived from the E-Class, its direct competitiion model. And they were critizing that MB copied it from the pLexus guys. <P>Speaking of lack of originality, I think Hyundai knows how to copy design bits from everyone. It'd take me more than few hours to finish talking about THEIR designs....<P>

Notice that there are very few Lexus cars sold in Europe. Despite the MB ripoffs, Lexus makes cars exclusively with the North American market in mind. The original LS400 was made with the US specifically in mind. They are nice cars to "ride" in, but no one who enjoys the feel of a European sedan will ever want to "drive" one.

Great, something else for soccer moms to troll around in while talking on their cell phone and feeding their infants and doing everything else that doesn't remotely include paying attention to the road <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif"><P>

Have you ever noticed that the size of the SUV is inversely related to the size of the lady driving it. I was in a mall parking lot the other day and there was a woman driving an Excursion with no passengers that must of been 5'2" and 100 lbs. <P>No that's efficient. Hey, I'm 6'3" and an S70 and S60 fit me just fine.

If you compare these pictures with the Sequoia, you'll notice that it has shorter doors and shorter overhangs.<P>

I know this GX<B>470</B> (hint hint..4.7L just like LX470..just like the engine in Tundra? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">) might look slightly shorter and less bulkier than the Sequoia....but I have no doubt if this SUV is at least based on the Sequoia for the exterior and interior..and the engine. Probably the chasis is more similar to the Land Cruiser?
