Upfront, we see the familiar Tiger Nose grille with thick chrome/silver borders, flanked by a pair of sleek headlamps with LED daytime running lamps. The front bumper looks muscular and aggressive, thanks to the shape lines and large air intakes, while the profile reveals the flared wheel arches, silver roof rails, sleek ORVMs and large diamond-cut alloy wheels. Also, the angular C-pillar helps add that bold SUV character to it. The rear section appears to come with LED taillamps connected by a light strip, while the rear bumper appears to come with beefy cladding and faux skid plate.
