Meh. It's not as if there's that much of a difference between that and what I'm driving now.

Now we know that the Saturn plastic engineers all got jobs at Toyota. Feh.

I thought the new Grand Cherokee had an ugly mug.  Damn 4Runner, you win!

Headline of TFA: 2014 Toyota 4Runner deploys with sharp edges

I absolutely would NOT drive it.  Just look at those sharp edges.  It is way below my standar|

I can't decide if it's a storm trooper or grumpy cat.

Toyota Aztek?

From the comments:

"Nice to see the designers of the Pontiac Aztek found work."

I think the thing that most sets off the front of the new one are the headlights.  That slant just seems odd and arbitrary to me.  This is quick and dirty, but I think it looks a lot better without that slant.

Fog lights mounted too high to actually help with fog? Check.
Clear taillight covers? Check.
LEDs in the headlights and/or taillights? Check.
Huge, gaping maw grille? Check.
Overcompensatory, uber-masculine, agressive bodywork? Check.
Non-Functional Fender Ventstm? Oooooo. Sorry, Toyota. You very nearly imcorporated every terrible car styling cliche of today. Nice effort, though.

I think you're on to something. That bit on either side of the grill looks like gills.

Come on, you don't buy SUVs to look good.

You buy them to hog up parking spaces for your smelly little family when you go to the grocery store.

You'd think the terrorists would go for a cheaper used car.  It's not like they care about reliability or your ten-year warranty.

But it does have a hood scoop there is that.

What the hell is up with Toyota and their insistence on turning every model into something that looks like a Chrysler?

The only thought to reliability or guarantee is that it will blow up.  Either the US(or one of its allies) will blow it up or it blows itself up.

That'll be true whether it's a Hilux-turned-technical, Yar[is]-bomb, or 4Runner Terrorwagon.

Look under the hood and you can tell that it's a Toyota by the lack of displacement.

Screw you. I like it.

But admittedly, I like ugly crossovers. I love the Cubes and Souls and FJ Cruisers and Elements of the world. Hell, I even drive a Jeep Compass.

/screw the aztek, though...Even i think that bastard was hideous

I'd buy an Aztec right now if it had all the crap like the tent in good condition.

That, and it's one of the few places forced air would belong.

I kind of like it. The side profile throws back to something resembling the 2nd & 3rd gen 4Runners. Since my first (and current offroader) was a 1992 4Runner, that's a positive for me. Always thought the 4th gen looked too much like a Ford Exploder.
I just wish Toyota would stop with the stupid fake hood scoops. I've got a 2010 Tacoma double cab with a 6 speed manual transmission, and it also came with a useless hood scoop.

They should really be embarrassed about only getting 270 hp out of a 3.5l V-6.

Depends on the power curve, if it's getting +350 ft*lbs below 2500 rpm and is out of horsepower by 5500, it'd be a good towing/hauling combo.
