Corporate Grills Gone Oh So Wrong

Corporate grills and front fascias have become common place amongst the automakers that populate our vast new car selection.  As with anything, they range from bland and/or boring, to handsome and even bazar seeming straight out of a science fiction movie. For the purposes of this article we’re going to focus our attention on the negative end of the spectrum to discuss and laugh at those that have entered the world of, “how in the hell did that make it through testing groups?!” I don’t know why so many companies insist on using a corporate grill other than building a brand and a face with recognizable traits much like the way BMW has done with the two kidneys since, well forever.  Automakers today are taking this consistency to new levels and it’s just bad.  Without further adieu my top five most horrifically wrong grills are as follow.  I am not the owner of these images (thank god) and I will not be held accountable for thoughts of self harm after staring at these monstrosities. 

Lexus Predator 


Lincoln – Space failure


Acura Beak – Please poke my eyes out  Image

Mazda Smile – So much happiness it hurts



Ford – Gillete Mach 3 grill for that extra close shave 



Are these your least favorite or are there others that you loathe just as badly?  I’d love to hear your thoughts/opinions in the comments below!
