    New Look? well typical Toyota change the grill and call it all new.
    Already looks outdated for a 2014 Model and the interior is hideous plasticky looking.

    OK, who designs this junk? I thought the new Jeep Cherokee was butt ugly but it may actually take a back seat to this. Not just ugly, but Aztek/Juke ugly. WOW!

    It's not that the face is so ugly (although, it ain't pretty), it's that it's completely incongruous with the side view which is rather plain. And, as usual, the interior is right out of the 1980's... with a video screen. Since all vehicles are pretty reliable these days- Makes you want to fall in love with American car companies again.

    I thought it was kinda ugly at first, but like an English Bulldog... so ugly, it's "cute." I'm already used to it. Toyota will either be called bland or bold with each redesign. You can't please everybody. This looks like a robotic mutt, but I've seen worse.

    That looks like something out "Transformers".......it would be hard to make something that hideous looking without considerable effort. Toyota...what are you doing?

    They could've at least picked one that hadn't been in an accident to display to the public. No, wait.. Roll this thing over a few times, then run it into a wall, and it'll look better!

    It can be aggressive and good looking; Toyota has chosen differently. 4Runner once got it right, but they are doing their only few competitors a big favour in 2014. Toyota, look at who buys 4Runner, and do your research. See all the responses, fix the styling (or just simply continue 2013 and add some freebies), and make a few dollars from your unique but last breed, old but proven platform.
