Hi, I am new to the forum, I have been a long time GX owner I have 2013 and looking forward to getting the 550. I took a test drive today at my local Lexus dealer in a premium + model and was impressed. I have a few questions before jumping in and putting my order in. What is the differences in the Overtrail vs Premium as far as on road handing goes. I do some light off road in my current GX with Michelin Latitude Tour tires that handle well on the curvy back country roads we normally drive. I noted the 550 I drove today had Yokohama Tires. My wife and I do landscape photography and go to some out of they way areas to get the picture and would like to have a more off road cappableable GX with out sacrificing the on road handling. I know the Overtrail will handle off road just fine but no one has talked about the Overtrail does for every day on road driving.

Welcome from your neighbor over here in Fredericksburg! The Luxury+, Overtrail, and Overtrail+ are the only trims that get the Adaptive Variable Suspension. I would imagine that suspension upgrade and tires would make the biggest difference on how the new GX handles on-road and off-road. The E-KDSS is only offered on the Overtail trims, and I imagine that might also help improve the ride.
