If not aerodynamic load, then some sort of resistance to making the truck move, which of course will decrease fuel efficiency.
Alex Renaud Jan 21, 2013
But there is always a trade off, and in this case it will be increased aerodynamic load that would otherwise give the truck better fuel economy.
Andrew Palmer Jan 20, 2013
I'm guessing the shutters are aerodynamic; around the radiator abs bumper area?
Samuel Reid Jan 20, 2013
Totally agree!
Jesse Williams Jan 20, 2013
Having to plug them up each night to charge.
Jesse Williams Jan 20, 2013
They should put this type of hybrid technology in all hybrid cars instead of making them look so green and ugly without hav
Derrick McCarthy Jan 21, 2013
I'd hit it.
Oren Blumenstein Jan 21, 2013
as much as i like ford ill stick with the ram for 2013
Oren Blumenstein Jan 21, 2013
not a fan of the headlights as k
Ben Hislop Jan 20, 2013
I'd buy that
Ron Vinson Jan 20, 2013
Sweet!
Benjamin Tyler Burkhardt Jan 20, 2013
Truck looks good. Now let's see the 4.4 liter Ford turbo diesel from the Land Rover Range Rover in it.
Jon White Jan 20, 2013
The headlights aren't fully stacked like chevys.
Tino Domingue Jan 20, 2013
I thought I would ever say this but the truck us actually bigger then the grillz
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
The make or break of this truck depends on what the state of Texas thinks of it.
Julian Pilinci Jan 20, 2013
@Parker, Yes that's the one now I remember, if GM makes that a production truck, it will be the king of trucks.
Derek Hedtke Jan 20, 2013
Looks like the trucks in black ops two
Jt Collier Jan 20, 2013
the new rolls royce phantoms have stacked headlamps, i doubt they stole it from chevy and i doubt ford stole the idea either.
Geoff Novak Jan 20, 2013
I hope they dont do that stacked headlight for a final design. Thats a chevy design
Dylan Bruder Jan 20, 2013
Agreed on that gmc this is good too
Chaz Gill Jan 20, 2013
People must really like gigantic grilles
Parker Leach Jan 20, 2013
I think your thinking of the GMC All Terrain Julian. That was badass
Julian Pilinci Jan 20, 2013
I love this truck, but last year I saw a GMC concept truck at the Detroit auto show and I think that was the best truck ever (can't remember the name).
Zachary Fix Jan 20, 2013
I'll get one
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
What makes the roof even better is its functional
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 20, 2013
You know nothing says running over wild animals like this truck
Jommel Marcella Jan 20, 2013
I like that roof design.
Bader Al Ajeel Jan 20, 2013
Explorer lights

Four door coupe...think
Jason Brown Jan 20, 2013
Concept car. They can try anything they want.
Matty Michaels Jan 20, 2013
So the doors are like those on pickup trucks? You have to open the front doors in order to open the back doors. Not the most brilliant idea.
Derrick McCarthy Jan 21, 2013
Ya Hyundai should stick to being Hyundai. I was gaining respect for them cause they started breaking out of the car copying business and actually making their own cars.
Tom Wilson Jan 21, 2013
It's a wanna be Aston Martian/ Chrysler 300
Benjamin McCormick Jan 21, 2013
Love it. Classy, yet forward thinking. Stately even. I wouldn't change a thing. Bet it looks even better in person. If the dynamics match the looks, I might be driving a Hyundai soon.
Saju Sreedharan Jan 20, 2013
Is it just me or anyone else sees an Aston badge??
Zalmy Ny Jan 20, 2013
Wow!! Hyundai is that you
Christian Billman Jan 20, 2013
Sweet if it stays true to concept. Lame if they wiff it.
Jacob Burford Jan 20, 2013
Very Ugly and Hyundai shouldn't try and make themselves something they aren't with the badge!
Ron Vinson Jan 20, 2013
BMW 650 Grand Sport in the rear.
Brave Kim Jan 20, 2013
way better than other concepts, IMO.
Kyle Kloewer Jan 20, 2013
Fucking Hyundai
Benjamin Tyler Burkhardt Jan 20, 2013
It looks like a next generation Fiat-Chrysler 300.
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
Looks like a Citroën, which isn't a bad thing.
James Myron Darnell Crabbe Jan 20, 2013
The front's kinda funny looking, but I like it.
Walter Alexander Thomas Jan 20, 2013
Front is ugly
Christopher Scott Jan 20, 2013
Like the 2015 NSX headlights... Only way, way uglier.
Patrick Schalk Jan 20, 2013
Love the front of this, the back needs some work IMO.
Aziz Umarov Jan 20, 2013
Hyundai making good progress.
Stephen Reed Warren II Jan 20, 2013
Mercedes CL + some Aston. I like it
Colby Church Jan 20, 2013
Yes, I like it, it's very unique. Would be cool to see a production version.
Pablo Herasme Jan 20, 2013
Nice and different, I like it
Daniel Alexander Soutar Jan 20, 2013
Completely agreed Will. They've made such colossal progress in such a short time...
Oleg Odessit Jan 20, 2013
Bentley Karma Aston megamix
Will Will Jan 20, 2013
Hard to believe its a hyundai.
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
I like it, its different and bold, ateast they were brave enough to try something new instead of playing it safe
Aaron Matthew Ward Jan 20, 2013
Where's the trunk?
Jeremy Kertgate Jan 20, 2013
Infiniti EX lights anyone?
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
Love any badge that has wings on it.
Walter Alexander Thomas Jan 20, 2013
Yucks
Aaron Sparks Jan 20, 2013
Lol Mustafa. Koreans do make "a real cars". They're one of, if not the hottest brands in America right now. You can't do that without making "a real cars".
Mustafa Alshekhly Jan 20, 2013
Koreans shouldn't even think about making cars unless they make a real cars Not a plastic toys
Dylan Bruder Jan 20, 2013
Ugly ugly ugly
Austin Whitener Jan 20, 2013
I like it smooth lines
Kyle McCullough Jan 20, 2013
Looks better in person
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
That's hideous. Current one looks a lot better! A LOT BETTER.

Why dont lincoln stop making concepts and actually build a production car. That is why they are losing money
Derrick McCarthy Jan 21, 2013
Nice.
Dave Rain Jan 21, 2013
Ugly. Try again
Ron Vinson Jan 20, 2013
Lincoln did it! Very nice.
Chris McCormick Jan 20, 2013
I could see this on the road in a year
Rodrigo Allen Jan 20, 2013
Love it. I've always been a fan of Lincoln, but haven't really liked their cars over the past ten years. I hope they bounce back.
Aaron Sparks Jan 20, 2013
This is so good looking. I can't stop staring at it.
Tino Domingue Jan 20, 2013
Yes it looks good... N they finally got the grill in the right spot with the right size... But I would like to see different head lights tho... And I still think Lincoln need to move upscale with Bentley n Royal Royce but with a ford price tag
Justin McLeod Jan 20, 2013
I like this a lot, I hope Lincoln keeps taking steps to set them apart from ford and just appearing as if they're offering Lincoln trim levels of fords. They need this brand to compete with Cadillac. Now if they just need some more performance models
Walter Alexander Thomas Jan 20, 2013
@Dule you make no sense at all. It is very obvious you do not know anything about what look great verses ugly. This is a great direction for Lincoln. Your opinion nor anyone else who obviously can make true judgement maters.
Walter Alexander Thomas Jan 20, 2013
Love this
Dulē Vuckovic Jan 20, 2013
This is stupid not futuristic at all theyre not trying to raise the bar in any way
Aaron Sparks Jan 20, 2013
Yes yes yes. I generally don't get excited about SUVs or crossovers but this is spectacular.
Colby Church Jan 20, 2013
I'm a GM guy, but I recognize when a competitor executes a job nicely, and this is executed very well. Nice design language.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 20, 2013
They've finally got the grill right.
Samuel Reid Jan 20, 2013
It is great ! But not with the same rims of the CR-V please...
Mustafa Alshekhly Jan 20, 2013
Wow !!!!!!!!!!
Dylan Bruder Jan 20, 2013
It's a right step
Chaz Gill Jan 20, 2013
Not to bad
Brendan Bell Jan 20, 2013
Everything about this is perfect. Good job lincoln
Joshua Basse Jan 20, 2013
*heart.
Joshua Basse Jan 20, 2013
I love this, but I have always had a soft spot in my mar for small to mid size crossovers.
David Lee Jan 20, 2013
Everyone says that this monstrosity is good looking, and then they say that the HCD-14 is ugly. What's wrong with this picture? A lot.
Jesse Williams Jan 20, 2013
This is really a nice Lincoln. Also, I think this would be a good step for Lincoln.
Zachary Maurer Jan 20, 2013
I really like this
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
Might b the first Lincoln I like. This looks pretty sweet
Howard Ding Jan 20, 2013
Looks like a 2006 Nissan Murano!
Adam Thomson Jan 20, 2013
Looks lovely!
Justin Johnson Jan 21, 2013
Dodge tail lights
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
Well if your going to steal, do so from the best. I think it looks brilliant. Just about anything that is done well is a derivative of something else, just with a different twist. Works for the entertainment industry.
Rodrigo Allen Jan 20, 2013
David, if you're going to be a fanboy, go somewhere else.
Jordan Jackson Jan 20, 2013
It actually looks like a pair of wings so no, it doesn't look like a ripped off BMW grille
Jordan Jackson Jan 20, 2013
Last time I checked Lincoln's grille doesn't look like double kidneys
Alan Haber Jan 20, 2013
David, you may be right, but saying that they stole the grill design from BMW is ignorant. Lincoln has been going that way for a while now. Not to mention it was a design done by Oldsmobile and Pontiac fairly regularly as well
Colby Church Jan 20, 2013
With all the reverse engineering that takes place between automobile manufacturers, it was inevitable that designs would get similar styling eventually, even if it's often just coincidence.
Samuel Reid Jan 20, 2013
Oh shit we have a 911 SUV over here. !
Mustafa Alshekhly Jan 20, 2013
This thing is great
Dylan Bruder Jan 20, 2013
Looks more like the lights on the new fusion to me
David Lee Jan 20, 2013
They're ripping other carmaker designs. BMW and the double grille and Porsche with the taillights... Not cool, Lincoln. Not cool.
Andy Nongbu Demar Cho Jan 20, 2013
Better!
Nick Schnee Jan 20, 2013
That's just what I thought, Nithin!
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
Not bad. I like this
Nithin Veliyuth Jan 20, 2013
the taillights, that is..
Nithin Veliyuth Jan 20, 2013

Is that a Civic? =-P
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
Hopefully the interior is just as cool and doesn't look like it was designed by Rubbermaid.
Elijah Ivan Jan 20, 2013
This is sexy.
David Lee Jan 20, 2013
Way better looking than the previous two pictures.
Julian Pilinci Jan 20, 2013
That's what corolla should really look like, Toyota need to step up on corolla and change it from a cheap car.
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 20, 2013
I like the color.
LarryandStephanie Espana Jan 20, 2013
Clean futuristic look. If it makes into the production corollas then they have a hit on their hands. And continue to have a best seller but nicer looking! Lol

The second coming of the Aztec
Manuel Pulgarin Jan 20, 2013
I like it

Much better than a Juke...
Daniel Alexander Soutar Jan 20, 2013
Very nice.
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 20, 2013

Jack Howard Jan 20, 2013
David, please tell you're not serious
Ron Vinson Jan 20, 2013
Trying way to hard!
David Lee Jan 20, 2013
So is the influence of Lexus. Look at that roofline! Pure Lexus RX.

Honda should put it into production just like this!

No it was from the Avengers. It's 1 yr old.
Justin Johnson Jan 21, 2013
I don't think of the NSX, Corvette, or 911 as a Supercar. The F40 was a Supercar. XJ220 was a Supercar. Ruf CTR/2. The NSX was amazing for what it was but it was not a Supercar. Technology wise maybe but the numbers didn't match.
Kaigan Viner Jan 21, 2013
Hasn't this same concept been out for the past 3 years? It had a Super Bowl ad last year and it was in iron man 2
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
And don't get it confused I'm not saying it can't be a supercar just that it needs to earn the title super car
Jack Howard Jan 20, 2013
It was a supercar throughout the 90s. They should've either discontinued it earlier, or improved upon it after the 90s, because it lost its supercar title in the 00s
Ron Vinson Jan 20, 2013
I can't get beyond the entire front end looking like an R8.
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Matt has acura continued to make that so called super car... no I don't think so, have they built anything that even competes with anything close to a super car since then... no I don't think so, but everyone u mentioned has continued to build and improve there cars, acura can't just step back into the game and claim there car a super car just cause they want to
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
Unless ur saying the cars I competed with (vette, viper, 911, multiple ferraris) aren't supercars either...
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
@ William, so the old nsx was just a sports car that happened to compete with so called super cars like vettes, vipers, 911's, and ferraris? Yea the old nsx was definitely a supercar.
Alex Bouckley Jan 20, 2013
Gurjit is just an ignorant baby
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Not really Matt, the last nsx wasn't a super car, and acura has never made a super car,Ferrari has and still does to this day, they at least have the right to use the name, acura does not and until it lays down some actaull performance figures its just an acura with a huge price tag, just cause they say its a super car doesn't mean it is
Tim Preisinger Jan 20, 2013
I don't care for Acura that much... And I would take this over almost any German or Italian car too. You can't call someone a dumb ass for sharing an opinion.... Dumb ass.
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
@ gurjit, calm down. It's MY OPINION. I would take this over any German or Italian car.
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
@ William, as far as we know, it's a supercar as of right now. That's like saying the upcoming f150 (new Enzo) isn't a super car yet
Mark Ifill-Haney Jan 20, 2013
@Gurjit: That's his opinion, dumbass.
David Lee Jan 20, 2013
Gurjit Calm your tits, it's an opinion, dumbass.
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Gurjit shut the fuck up you idiot, u can't argued his opinion on what's good looking or not, u may have forgotten this but everyone thinks different things are beautiful... never heard the phrase " beauty is in the eye of the beholder" take your ignorant ass somewhere else
Gurjit Singh Jan 20, 2013
@matt it isnt the sexiest car u dumbass there are many more italian and german cars that look better than this
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
I wouldn't call this a super car, supercar titlles need to be earned, and just cause the first nsx was a good car dosnt mean this one earned the supercar title. A very nice car yes but they need to stop calling it a super car
Patrick Schalk Jan 20, 2013
We know you wouldn't.
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
I really can't explain how beautiful this is. I don't care what people say, if this went into production today, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to call it the best looking/sexiest car on the market.
Bader Al Ajeel Jan 20, 2013
Best one
Derrick McCarthy Jan 21, 2013
"An ass after fajita night exhaust!!" Lol don't know why that's so funny to me, but it is.
Jack Howard Jan 20, 2013
They have their differences. This looks like a massive improvement upon the normal Acura interiors and does the LFA in comparison to other Lexuses.
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
Quality.
Ron Vinson Jan 20, 2013
Lexus and Porsche
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Connor u on the rag or something? He never even said anything about the civic being cool, don't be such a douche
Quinn Conner Jan 20, 2013
I know he isn't saying this is a civic. But even mentioning civic while looking at the nsx is what's most bothering. Your civic ain't cool at all. Nor will any amount of money thrown into it.
Justin McLeod Jan 20, 2013
Not saying that's a bad thing tho ;)
Justin McLeod Jan 20, 2013
Look up the LFA's interior in red. They look almost EXACTLY the same
Joe Hero Jan 20, 2013
Well I don't know about the Civic looking like this, but I know how you can make this look like a Civic! *cue spoilers, distracting LEDs everywhere, underglow, an ass after fajita night exhaust, and an "aerodynamic" body kit*
Mark Donnelly Jan 20, 2013
Quinn, he never compared the performance to the nsx, he just wished the interior in the civic was just as good as this interior
Quinn Conner Jan 20, 2013
@daniel really? Your going to compare this to a civic? Your Honda will never be in this cars category.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 20, 2013
That is extremely nice.
Ryan Spencer Jan 20, 2013
This just looks like a cool place to be. Wouldn't mind spending time in that driver's seat.
Daniel Alexander Soutar Jan 20, 2013
