Built to haul the family

The GX470 is the perfect family overlanding vehicle. It has enough room for the full family and all the gear. Plenty of power to haul a trailer and tackle any trail. The biggest factor is the reliability of the 2UZ engine and Toyota drivetrain. I know when I take my family into the middle of nowhere it will get me home.
