Default New Tow Vehicle...

The 2005 LX was getting a little long in the tooth, so bit the bullet and bought a new LX last night. Pick it up today.

Nice! Got to have a big truck like SUV in the stable. We're waiting on delivery of the X7. Wife just had to have it.

Same as the Land Cruiser - 5.7L V8. More luxury, air suspension, and more goodies.

Thanks! Yeah, selling the old LX and 550i to simplify the car situation. The LX definitely checks all the boxes. The X7 is nice too! Happy wife. Happy life!

The towing situation looks pretty good. 7,000 pounds is plenty, and it comes with trailer sway control.

This system is designed to detect and help suppress unwanted trailer movement caused by wind, bumpy roads and even steering operation.

Did you look at the Cayenne S? Or is there a big money difference. My wife drives a Volvo XC90 hybrid and loves it. I hate it. haha. Sounds like a Prius.

Yeah, looked at Cayenne, Macan, BMW and Range. We've owned 3 Lexus before and the wife just loves them.
