Sad but true, 'zilla. Sad, but true.
Globalization in it of itself isn't terrible
, I suppose. My biggest problem is this new style that every manufacturer is going with is a copy/paste and it seemingly isn't tailored to work for the vehicle in the first place.
Take the white ranger up there in the pics. Aside it being the Ford Ranger, for some reason, it's body lines are boring and it's cosmetics are uninspiring at best. Granted, this is low hanging fruit being a single color (not even a metallic one at that) with absolutely nothing on it, no mods to speak of, and stamped steel wheels; basically a fleet vehicle if I ever saw one.
It looks to me like they took a box with a bed on it, stuck some euro headlights on it, barely even profiled the tip of the hood to the top of the roof lines, and just ever so slightly pulled out the wheel wells just enough so that you can't call it flat and said 'alright, done, ship it'.
Now, had they actually gave it some real
curves and other features on it, it might not actually look terrible. But as it sits now, it's so minimalist it's unreal.
