Drove a 2006 LC today and then I drove a new 4runner SE V8. Had a buddy with me and he also drove both of them. The leather was nice in the LC and it had a nice ride and handled the bad pavement well. The 4runner was way quicker, and had a better ride quality even over the bad pavement. The 4runner felt tighter and more confident. My buddy felt the same way and started bugging me about why I would want to spend the extra $$$ on the LC when the 4runner drove better and got better mpg. Personally I was kind of shocked when I compared these two toyotas. Have any of you done a comparison drive in these two vehicles??
