Lexus, Toyota Sequoia, SUV

Who is the competition? Lexus has primarily targeted Range Rover with this vehicle, since Mercedes fields no competitor. The Range is $70k+.
A Sequioa is much larger than a Range, a better value in size. If Lexus matches or exceeds the power/features of the Range, expect a similar price, with the extra value of more room/tow/pass capacity.
I would expect a shade below $70k, an a new Sequioa the same year, maxing out at $55k for a loaded Limited.

I guess slapping an Escalade ESV name on a Yukon XL truck impresses some people..... 70 large for ESV (Platinum) vs. 50 for Yukon XL (Denali) Somehow that's much different than a Lexus Seq.....?

yeah I dont understand that either. At least Lexus can in part justify the cost with best in class materials, something Cadillac has never been able to do.

I would expect they'd price it below the current LX 470 by a little bit. Remember the LX 470 is based on the LandCruiser which is priced in the $55-60k range as it is. I'd expect the VX470 to be in that range probably competitive with the Infiniti QX56.

You're right about that...Lexus/Toyota execution, quality and materials are always light years ahead of Cadillac.

A 6.0 liter V8 is expected. Since the current 4.7
does 60 hp/liter in its most powerful version (282 hp), the new one will surely put out a minimum of 360 hp. If weight doesn't increase a lot, acceleration could be way better. This new engine will probably be derived from Lexus' new 5.5 V8, that'll be built to be used in the future GS, LS and SC. That one could easily make 400 hp and that'd be perfect for the next V8 GS that'll probably get the new, very powerful 3.5 of 280 hp, in its V6 version so the 2 won't be too close in hp like the 3.5 and the 4.3 that probably will in 2006.

A Lexus version of the Sequoia? Sounds awesome!
Where will it be built, Indiana?

I tink you are mixed up here. The 5.5 V8 is a Toyota Truck engine for the next Tundra, etc., not a car engine. Toyota doesn't need or want that big a car engine (feul economy), especially with their advances in hybrids. If they need more power, they can add it while increasing economy, not with displacement. That ain't happening.

I think you are missunderstand, the cost of new SUV doesn't base on it platform of other suv are selling. Yes, Sequioa is cheaper than LandCruiser, because it less technological, and at lower price to attract new custome to Toyota full size suv family. It won't be a suprise if the new VX 470 it more expensive than current Lx470. If it have bigger engine and more technological.
