How do you feel about Toyota winning the grille war?
I don't get it.Are those grills some kind of inside joke in the automotive industry? They look fucking ugly, but more and more brands are pushing it.
Every car generation we stray further from gods light
>>24722660Toyota is still soulless from the past 4 years and it won't matter.
>>24722664they have to show they did some fluid dynamic work.
>>24722664>One company starts the trend>Other companies start copying them to make sure they're not missing out
>>24722660What's the real purpose of this? They have to know it looks stupid. Is the mesh lighter than the bumper/front end cover material and they're trying to save weight by literally giving you half a front end cover?
>>24722660> avalonliterally mean swallowing in french
>>24722660They follow the trend, otherwise they are retarded cuz they can't see anything cuz of their slanted eyes.
>>24722700That name suits them cuz it will consumes itself.
>>24722660holy shit that is sad
>>24722691It's cheaper to manufacture
>>24722660>80% of it is fake and doesn't do anythingWHY
>>24722660They aren't, the Avalon is getting canned this year [spoiler]:([/spoiler]
>>24722660like genuinely what the fuck is up with the grilles - there can't be that much need for air right??? it's not like they have to cool down a fucking v12 engineI hate new cars so much bros... I never thought it would get this bad as someone who enjoys cars
>>24723551look at the price of F80 M3/4they are literally not going down
>>24723546look at it, literally 80% of its holes are covered, only the small top portion has actual holes
>>24722660those modern grilles really remind me of those old gmod videos with face animation sliders cranked up to 10 times
>>24722664people buy themmeme posters on /o/ are not their target clientele
>>24722660Bottom looks like a Camaro now
>>24723584Do chinks really buy Jap cars in big amounts? I thought they were still really angry against them
>>24725311but still they are buying inline 3 cars from their chinese factories then complain about the vib.They can hate US all day in the end of the day when they have money they send their kid to US.
>>24722671>makes homologation rally car
>>24723066Don't worry anon, next year you get to enjoy this.
>>24725890Here's some of the concept art for the 2022 Landcruiser too.
>>24722685>Other companies start copying them to make sure they're not missing outWhat made them so risk averse in the first place? Do none of these companies have the madmen that made the company great in the first place?
>>24722664My theory is that the black plastic doesn't get stone chipped so the car doesn't age as fast, has better resale and the brands rep is improved. Also paint is alot more expensive than ABS.
>>24722660Toyota design is ugly as sin, except for the Tacoma, the new sienna looks ok I guess also.Honda's Civic redesign is tight butthole tho
>>24726545>My theory is that the black plastic doesn't get stone chipped so the car doesn't age as fastFalse unfortunately. I don't know why but the black plastic on them was white underneath and stone chips caused little white specks to appear. It's weird and I don't get it but it happens.
>>24725890I'm personally excited for the 2023 model
>>24727042>that rooflineDare I say, based?
>>24725897this is incredible. it causes actual confusion.
>>24725897i can see 3 different faces in that grille
>>24725897>Gib energon burger. Bless Primus
>>24725897I'm laughing aloud
>>24727051based and pillboxed.
>>24725897Knowing Toyota it will expand into hood and fenders in the next refresh. They want to beat BMW in the ugly game.
>>24727042now its a chevy
It's not even a grille, it's just a closed piece of plastic. It's not even pretending to be a grille, there's no airflow over 75% of it and it's just more plastic that breaks off easily and costs an entire front bumper to replace.
>>24727042Based and futurepilled
>>24730216Is it crying?
>>24725897Fuck, i love it!
>>24725897thats hilariously bad
>>24725897>translation>The designer received inspiration from the Land Cruiser FJ62. The horizontal lines and square graphics creates a bolder and much more clearer and cleaner Fascia.Thoughts, /o/?
>>24730516He took something nice and made it terrible.
>>24725897HR Giger doing some design work for Toyota I see
>>24730516>Clearer and cleanerPretty sure he's just a fucking moron.
>>24730516>cleaner fascia>by making it a messwhat did he mean by this
GAZ is stepping up their game
>>24722664women like it because it makes the car look more commanding on the road
refreshed silverado looks best imo
>>24722672>>24722685>>24723584>>24732372all wrong. These modern cars all have 12 bajillion different cooling circuits (oil1,engine coolant, turbo air coolers, ducted vents for hvac, ducted vents for brakes, and sometimes more)
>>24732400Why do modern cars require more cooling?
>>24732403density of the drivetrain and power unit,basically because surface is a quadratic funtion and volume a cubic function..in a big block the temperatures produced arent that high since 1. they dont burn at stochiometric proportions and 2. the pressure and compression ratios are smaller.google some of these words if it helps
>>24722672>muh aerodynamics>muh fluid dynamicsThis is all bullshit and I wish people would stop using it to excuse manufacturers from the fact they make absolute dogshit designs.They CHOOSE to do this.Nothing about aerodynamics, crash safety etc Look at pic related, it's a traditionally styled 1960s front end.It's a modern car, it's aerodynamic and crash approved. You can have any design you want applied to a modern form down to the 1950s and it would work. They don't want to make good looking cars.
because aluminum is a shit metal for engines
>>24732403They don't2/3 of the grille and vents are closed off
>>24732418>reddit spacinggtfo also you dont know anything about cars
>>24732429>mentions reddit for no reason >le youre wrong replyKill yourself you brainless fag
>>24732418a lot of modern cars look like shit but have all those complicated tiny fins and angles that imply some sort of big brain aerodynamic sensibility, but it really just does fuckall and often works against fuel efficiency. cheaper cars are supposed to be shit so you spend more on the car that isn't designed to tactically disappoint in ways that make you look up a trim level and fantasize. the further a car diverges from a textbook NACA airfoil, the less streamlined it is, and the shittier the fuel economy will be. we unironically need to RETVRN to 1930s streamlining, informed by modern aerodynamic knowledge and standards. Shit grilles happen when companies find a buncha niggers and spics, get them in a room, and show them concept cars until they start whooping about how big and badass it looks. the cult of the focus group may be the most damaging social institution of our age
>>24726542Revenues bring stocks up and makes you keep your job. Current corporate management strategy. Play safe and sell, do what most do, don't risk it, people will buy it anyway.
>>24732429>confusing dot points with reddit spacingAbsolute retard.
