maybe I don't pay close enough attention,

that looks like the old one, and the F150 with a slightly different grille

Yeh, I think this is way ostentatious. Suffacating more like. I do like the new F series pick up though. Trucks are so inconspicous, and you could be anyone driving noe, no attention payed.

Seriously, these guys lack any kind of inginuity. I do like the new GM SUV's, but they're more marketing tools than anything, and me being an artist, cannot respect that. Originality is king, and is largely missing from todays auto design landscape. I treasure and relish cars like the new 599 GTB. Now I gotta get $200k and some freinds w/ Ferarris to get one. I actually had the pleasure of meeting the owner of Beverly HIlls Ferarri, AND he gave me his buisness card, so half the battle has been won... now $200k.

That seriously looks horrible. I hate all SUVs anyway, even our own.

Oh gawd, I can understand the Zephyr-like (MKS whatever they decide to call it) rear tail light treatment, but what's up with the side? Makes me want to go to home depot and buy some brushed aluminum door protectors and stick them on my Explorer? I don't think so.

And the front end? Hideous and bad design taste.

The real question is does it float?
