BASE PRICE: $78,630
BODY TYPE: Full-size/Luxury SUV
WHAT'S NEW: Mostly carryover, there are some minor changes for 2011, like a new black interior with leather trim. A heated steering wheel option has been added to the Luxury Package, which includes a semi-aniline leather interior with Bubinga wood trim and a cool box for drinks. The LX receives a brake override system, too.
COOL FACT: Active Height Control lowers the LX 570 1.0 in. front and about 0.5 in. rear at highway speeds to improve aerodynamics.
SUM UP: Cruiser for well-heeled ranchers.
