I agree about the quality and materials in the Lexus over the Cadillac, however Cadillac has something Lexus has not been able to do with a full size luxury SUV and thats put style with it. And please don't hate Cadillac Lexus's current SUVs hp is just a whimp..It's like 235 hp or so on such a large SUV (LX) is really sorry, and head to head ESV Platinum Ed 70K for the Caddy is better theres more room, power. Features like heated and cooled seats, two DVD players for second and THIRD ROWS!!! power adjustable pedals, 20" wheels, etc, however it's your money

So you're telling me the 5.5 is the next Tundra engine? I thought Toyota wanted to build a 6.0 so that Nissan's Titan doesn't have a bigger, more powerful engine. And what will happen to the next Lexus cars V8? Not sure they're gonna keep it like it is. They're surely gonna make it bigger, I don't know, a 4.5 or 5.0?

actually on the motor trend web site it says 5.4 liter for the new tundra.Also my godmother works for lexus, and she told me a year ago the IS will have a coupe, convertible. They will also have a supera like sports car that will be 90 grand with a hybrid V10 engine that will be optional on the LS, to compete against S600 and 760iL. There also developing a AMG/M like programe, but it wont be as huge because lexus is first a luxury car.She says all will happen once lexus is developed in japan as a seperate brand as it is here.

This new truck is mentioned in an article about Lexus in this week's Automotive News, an industry trade magazine. All it says is that the truck will be called the JX 470, be based on the Sequoia platform and arrive in spring 2006. It is not certain whether it will replace the LX 470 or supplement it.

Thanx for the crystal ball view of Lexus! This heresay makes sense, as Lexus will have a sports car to replace the NSX as THEY standard in Japanese performance, and still stay a strong value at under $100k.
Using a hybrid V10 for both the sports car and LS makes sense, as a V12 is no longer necessary, with Hybrid Tech.
If you get any more info, please send it down!
I wouldn't go breaking my arm patting myself on the back about the Escalade becoming stylish. If rappers didn't put dubs on every Escalade, in every rap video, and give Caddy all that free exposure, it wouldn't be half as popular. When the hottest thing about your truck is the wheel wells....GM can't thank the ghetto fast enough!

this question has been asked several times already, but here goes again!!!!!!!!!!
When will this thing be on sale, have got the bug.......cant hold out much longer.....need a fix.......

The Toyota Group is planning on redesigning or introducing 18 models in the next two years, or something like that. I bet that the JX 470 will be around by early next year.... I hope. It sounds like a nice alternative to the Escalade, which is NOT a good looking car. My friend's mother has one (she's pretty old, the car is gigantic to her) and it is very gaudy, not to mention that the interior looks like a Trailblazer. But that's not my point. Since the Sequoia is a good SUV (from what I gather) it would figure that its Lexus variant would be very good as well. Anyway, the segment needs a more utility-minded Lexus, because the LX470 is a tad weak for its size,and it shares its engine with another SUV that is much cheaper

LX OR VX doesnt matter by name
but i think if there is really VX sharing wheel base with sequoia i think there will be also new gen LX sharing the wheel base and mechanics with the new land cruiser
TOYOTA not silly to delete the out roads cabability of the landcruiser from lexus catalogue
just think about it
how want space with good price go to VX
and how want the true out roads cabability with luxury welcome in LX

There's no guarantee that Toyota won't cut the Land Cruiser when they introduce the new FJ, and that would cut the LX off right there. I think that they will make the GX the off-roader, the VX a 65,000 Escalade killer with lots of space and the LX the super-plush 78,000 do-anything machine.
