The earlier generation series- 100 Landcruisers were available with a so- called "L- Package" which included upgraded interiors, LX470 style grille & other cosmetic upgrades.

The Brand Lexus was Made and designed for the American market by Toyota,in order to capture the luxury car segment. which without any doubt they did.
There is alot of difference between a Toyota and a Lexus, a Lexus is much more Luxurious than a Toyota as said before by many members, if the difference was only of a L(Lexus) badge and a T(toyota) badge on the car, nobody would have baught the car with the L badge by paying almost the double the price.
Toyota does not cheat people with switching badges on cars,if that was the case, toyota wouldnt have been the Company which sells most number of cars in the world(which includes Lexus). It is the Cheats who deal in preowned cars in Asia(specifically) who switch badges and sell cars,i know people in India who have switched badges of their own Landcruisers to Lexus, what joy do they get?any new person would think its a Lexus, and give it immense respect.

For the people who think the difference is just of a badge, dude just think, there must be some reason why a Lexus is compared to a Mercedez or a BMW, and NOT a Toyota.
Just so u didnt know, Toyota launched Lexus in their Home country Japan in 2005. Thats after 16 years they sold in the U.S.A.

Oops, sorry! You are totally right. No sense in continuing discussion on Lexus re- badging. Sorry.
