Sans the grill, I think it does and GM even rounded out the wheel wells.

yeah, you would think they would make their own path in regards to looks wouldn't you?

They finally get a body style I like then they have to change it.  08 -13 are ugly.

They do look similar to the Toyota for sure.

Wilber, the 07 to 12 were diff. Then they got real busy with the 13 with both being the same. If they had just kept the wells squared off a little more, that has been there shape since 72.

JR I didn't realize that.....I knew the headlights/grille etc were different. But didn't catch some of the other differences in the sheet metal. Been asleep at the wheel I guess....  :facepalm:

I think the new Ram looks a lot like the Yota as well.  Crash standards and pedestrian impact rules combined with efficiency/drag coefficient make them all look the same.  Design follows function/regulatory requirements.
