Lexus LX470 Towing?

Is anybody towing a LX470? Any pros or cons to think about.

The spoiled DW says we can get rid of her Cadillac STS daily driver if we get a comparable towable SUV (she doesn't read this forum, LOL).

Any idea's?

Thanks, Mike

You might look at the Remco towing site(Application Charts | Remco Towing)

Most of the Lexus models can only be trailered.

We tow a Lincoln MKX all down, it tows very nicely, and we have over 6000 miles towing it so far.

Mike,

Also take a look at this site. Not only can you look at new vehicles that can be towed, you can look at past years.

Good Luck,

Bob

We tow a 2007 Lexus 470...
Transmission in park
Transfer case in neutral and leave key in but not on, so steering won't lock.
Blue ox is way to go. One man operation.
3 min hook-up and 2 min un-hook
Been towing this SUV since it was new.
