    I was very surprised that those specs were not standard when the vehicle was launched locally. I therefore thought that TSA had intentionally left them off so that they can be added when they do their (first of many?) facelift(s). But they have already upgraded the Fortuner spec to those 18" alloys, so maybe market demand and the increased pressure from Ford has made them change their game plan a bit. We as the consumers are definitnely the winners here as Toyota re not getting their own way like they used to.

    I'm looking at a new 2,4 DC 4X4 SRX, and would be REALLY p(ssed if I have an old spec in a month's time.

    Not sure if SRX will see those updates, perhaps just the Raider spec?

    But the SRX that I'm looking at IS the wide body, with OE mags and fish finder on the dash. The SR still has the narrow body and fugly steel wheels.

    Then you should be safe? What else can they add without eating into Raider sales?

    Maybe they should put the front in the back and the back in front. Can't look much worse

    Toyota SA seriously short-changes its customers by putting in those CHEAP ASS headlights. They are very arrogant to think people can't see the difference.

    It's a 600K vehicle and they fit it with bloody halogens.
