I was expecting more then this, more of a Nissan Patrol level facelift...<p>I think other countries will get a 4.7L VVTi V8, like most new american SUVs and Trucks have...

Meh. Nothing much, I'm glad, It won't destroy the residuals of my Dad's Cruiser...

looks very similar to my '03 LX (except for the minor toyota vs. lexus trim bits)...i was expecting more of a massage than this.

I thought the LX was supposed to get a new model?

good god, 1 more grille slat for the LX and revised lamps for the LC 100 - toyota is reallly pushing this one - its still an ultimately slick SUV tho; more power doesnt hurt either

I never thought that Toyota had a Cygnus (with 4 headlights) I thought that 4 headlights were for LEXUS and 2 headlights were for Toyota (which is 100)<br>

How lame. I think that despite being a good truck, the LC 100 is overdue now and should be at least facelifted by 2007 MY <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0">

Keep in mind that the next FJ (130, I think) should be coming out for 2008, at the latest. I wasn't even expecting a facelift at all.

Yeah, but it's not like the design is cruddy and crappy-- it's just old and looks its age.

IMO chassis based 4x4s are better than unibody 4x4's in true off road 4x4 use specially over time. By this I mean that they can take more abuse. For example I remember that XJ Cherokee's with unibodies subject to severe off road use would show cracks in the body (by the wind shield, rear quarter window and tailgate) while the chassis based TJ or CJ never had this problem....
