I am thankful the 3G Tacoma takes no styling cues from Lexus

    The third Gen tacos are great looking trucks, and their design takes practical use into consideration, with respectable approach and departure angles etc. Bravo to Toyota on the styling of the 3G.

    Looking at the new 2020 GX460 this morning, I just feel very thankful my truck looks nothing like this.

    I think the grille styling looks good on the sedans. But is too much on the SUVs

    I’d show up to the dealer and :sawzall:right in the lot. There’s no way I’m bringing that grille home.

    Ha! To be honest, not a fan of the newer 4runner either for similar reasons. Even the 3g tacoma was pushing it.

    I might be the only person to love the Lexus trucks. I find the grille styling to be so premium and luxurious.

    I think this one might need more than KBros and 5100s, but I’m open to being proven wrong.
