Yeah that was my point. The 4Runner and Wrangler don't look like ass and sell just fine.
Hell I saw a Honda Pilot commercial tonight and it looked better/more rugged than the D5.

These trucks will sell just fine too. But not to us.

I like the way the new 4Runner looks with just a small lift.

The TRD Pro's are pretty nice. We own a 3rd Gen 4runner and I wouldn't trade it for a new one. 165K on the clock and it still drives new. We take very good care of it though.

I finally saw a Discovery TD6 this weekend at Wintergreen.

Like Greenspan said, it just gets lost in the sea of new/curvy/sport-utes.
I think the current Subaru lineup has more character.

Oh, and the sticker price of $71,000 for that awesome 26mpg diesel...... LOL

I would have had more respect for jlr/Tata if they would have just kept to somewhat an original line to the vehicles model. Or at least kept an original vehicle for each model and sub-modeled everything else. (Exsample: LR5 or Discovery (original lines) then gone off and done the discovery sport, evoque etc...) But hey I'm not the market they are looking for. Nor would I ever be able to afford anything newer then 10 years old. So they listen to people that can afford the brand and sadly this vomit of a product is what was regurgitated from the trageted markets input. I think if the brand doesn't switch hands (again) and go back to a British or like minded company where they are willing to go back to original designs, then your seeing the future of this brand and where it's heading.
But yes, I do feel the brand can do more to appeal to a more wider base and yes I feel like they should bring some " ruggedness " back to the line up. I want to think safari, over landing, camel trophy again when I say Land Rover, which sadly I don't anymore.
I'm not a purist by any means I do believe in bettering a product and using technology to advance it. It's just... it feels like something is missing, like an emptiness that would like to be filled... in another 10 years when I can afford one.
