If it is true, it seems like they eventually got rid of the ugly shark nose look.

This looks much better:

Nou begin hulle saam praat. Ek het ook nooit van die nuwe shape gehou nie. Ford verkoop goed omdat hy die look het. As dit die nuwe look gaan wees van Toyota volgende jaar, dan gaan Ford bars.

Stem saam, as daai die nuwe gesig van die 2018 Hilux gaan wees gaan Toyota hulle bakkie mark terugkry wat hulle verloor het.

I like the new look as well - gives it that 'muscle car' look. Nice one, Toyota!

I don't think so . The grill looks like that of a Toyota Tacoma / 200 series

Ha ha, Daan, anything is better than the current front bumper design. The Ford does look better than the current Revo, so even if Toyota have to copy the Ford looks to get their Hilux to look better, it is still an imporvement.

To me it does look more like the Tacoma look which many has been raving about the past 4 years on the forum. Beats me why they did not go with this look in the first place because the Tacoma had it for many years now. Sometimes Toyota reminds of of Microsoft, when you launch a new product/version make sure something about it is ultra crap, loose sales, and then jump to the rescue with the solution you should have implemented in the first place.
