    I think a Lexus option would be cool for those who really want to step it up a little, just like GMC's Denalli over a base Chevy. However, I don't know what Lexus designers were smoking when they designed their current front ends - those grills are hideous.

    Looks like a Lexus GX or Toyota LandCruiser Prado with a flatbed. Or perhaps a Hilux with Lexus badging.

    I have a hard time believing that was done by Lexus. That looks like someone's hack job to me.

    My wife looked at and drove an ES350 before she got her Avalon. Front end was awful. Grill openings are huge! There were leaves inside the grill on the radiator in the showroom model. I asked how do you get them out without taking a panel off because the top and bottom are covered. They didn’t have an answer. She googled it later. You have to reach in with long tongs and pick them out one by one. That s#%t won’t flush in PA in the fall. WTF?

    I agree totally. If I were a Lexus Manager and the design engineer brought in a drawing that looks like the current Toyota/Lexus front grill designs, I would make that engineer sit in a corner with a dunce cap on...

    At first I thought it was a Hilux. But it's too chubby. Looking at it more, I'm starting to think it's a Tundra RCSB with some Lexus pieces on it.

    Liking the mirrors.

    Guessing Helux with GX but that grill is the fanciest one I have ever seen. Almost not real.

    Can anyone make out the license plate location?

    I’m digging the hood lines and headlight setup. The grill should go into a shredder, it’s pretty fugley.
