    The 08 LandCruiser

    Thankfully, it retains some of the previous model styling, and even more thankful its not as freaky as the new LX570. I still think they should've left the cladding on the side.

    It looks like a cross between a nissan/mitsubishi/vw/toyota suv not too good.

    Wow, it looks exactly like the new LX!!! At least GM tried to make the 900's look a little different. Seems Toyota didn't even bother.

    Pretty hideous, and way too much like the LX.

    I like the 570 but this is a little bit too strange for me. It has lost that grown up look that the current gen has if that statement makes any sense. The front end is really the downfall of the design, the lights are too big for projectors like that and the chrome center just seems out of place. Certainly not their best effort, but lucky for toyota the new impreza's face will remind everyone that this isn't so bad.

    Well, found out the above pictures are only renderings. Looks like the LandCruiser will get the ugly booty after all.

    Lame, Toyota really messed up one these 2. (I'm not completely sure on the Land Cruiser since these are only spy pics, but from what I can tell) These spy shots look like something a Chinese company designed, with the odd proportions and weak design. Also, where are the "Rebadge, Rebadge, that's a REBADGE!!!!!!" people saying they are too similar to each other?

    that front end is either a chop, or the ugliest front end to ever exist.
