Hi everyone,

I am in the market for an L405. I am looking for a diesel HSE and trying to decide between 2016 and 2017.

The main difference appears to be the infotainment. The 2016 has the InTouch plus while the 2017 has the InTouch Pro. On the 2017 you can also get lane keep assist, not just lane departure warning.

Are there any other big changes that I am missing? I am just not sure if the 2017 upgrades are worth the $10K difference in price.

Thanks,
Paul

Also the center rear view mirror on the 17 is updated to a trim less version. I am not sure when the foot gesture activated tailgate was introduced, I know it is on the 17s. And on the 17s you have remote starting. On the 16s you can do a few things remotely, flashing lights, and rolling down the windows. Also with the 17 you can move the navigation maps to share the main instrument cluster.

I had ‘16 and now ‘17. Key differences in ‘17 are fast infotainment / bigger navnscreen, remote start from phone app, piano black gear knob, rimless rear view mirror, trailer control & camera, Rear seat hdmi and bigger 10” screen option. Gesture control was introduced in ‘16 but infotainment is super slow but it’s tried and tested vs ‘17 might have some electrical issues/ glitches.

Based on above, you can assess whether or not it’s worth 10K gap vs do you really want these ‘17 updates ?

Foot gesture started with 2016 MY.

Dealers are listing 2017 HSE Diesels for $14k off MSRP. Are you saying you are finding new 2016 HSE Diesels for $24k off MSRP or are you saying CPO 2016 versus new 2017 would be the $10k difference? Just curious. In your situation I'd go with a 2017.

I made lowball offers on TD6's for 2 months across the country and the best I could do was 10% off..

I looked at that deal in JAX on the 17 for 14k off we discussed - and it turned out to be used with 10k miles ....

Bet next month deals will be better as the 18's roll in ...

Ah sorry about that! Didn't realize it had that many miles. I've seen some other dealers have $12-14k off diesels also in my recent searches, but maybe they are demos too?

Current rebates from LR ($3000 off V6 and $5000 off V8) expire 4/2/2018, so I wouldn't expect more movement until then. I did hear though that regional managers are pressuring dealers to get the 2017 stock off the lots. I just don't see people buying a 2017 for only $3-5k off when the 2018s are coming in. For $90-100k vehicles, $3,000 off is miniscule.

One of the dealers in South Florida was listing 2017 SCs for $12k off. $5,000 rebate and $6-7k dealer discount. Unsure if those were demos though.

Still toying with the idea of getting a leftover 2017 if I can find an incredible deal, but happy to stay the course if not.

after owning my 2017 for a week now I would say the 17 upgrade may not be worth the price of admission from 16 to 17 .... I don't use GPS often (use Waze) so its really not a big deal for me ...

Infotainment is still pathetically slow compared to other vehicles I have owned and driven ..

Love the truck BTW ... but my 2008 Land Cruiser had better GPS .. :mrgreen:
