The latest 2017 Toyota 70 Series GXL Wagon was recently assessed and the new wagon seems to have greatly complied with the expectations. The new flagship earned an 11 out of 10 rating based on "Fit for purpose" category.

According to Trent Nikolic, car analyst and senior editor of CarAdvice, the new 70 Series GXL Wagon is the "most gold-plated, diamond-encrusted" epitome of the theory on the market lately. Nikolic also mentioned that even Matt Campbell, another road tester, shares the same assessment for the new wagon.

The publication also specified that among its rivals, the new 2017 Toyota 70 Series GXL Wagon may par equal with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, now that the Land Rover Defender is already taking a back seat. The first two cars can be considered highly capable, meeting factory standards, and satisfactorily priced.

The 2017 Toyota 70 Series GXL Wagon begins with $64,990 price tag. At first, the cost would seem kinda pricey to some. However, if one will consider how users can greatly depend on the new wagon when traveling long distances with nasty dirt tracks, the price then becomes cheaper than it appears. Moreover, the new wagon is dependable even in desert areas, as the tires can overcome the powdery sand track.

Furthermore, the new 70 Series can be considered a rural favorite. The wagon is similar to a workhorse which can easily pull a camper trailer off a muddy track or slimy slope due to its two different locks and extremely low range gearing.

The new wagon's cruise control system is also deemed excellent. The car analyst mentioned that the system is in fact, one of the most accurate he has ever assessed.

The 2017 Toyota 70 Series GXL Wagon also offers comfortable riding experience even on longer drives. With its tall headroom and spacious clearance, the new wagon has enough space for passengers who are six-foot tall.
