The Flying What?: The 2007 Subaru Tribeca's Newish Nose

Subaru's new Tribeca SUV is getting a subtle tweak that will de-emphasize the current model's controversial, "flying vagina" grillework (thanks ever so much for that image, Farago. We owe you one). The new base model will get flack-black-colored lines where chrome teeth once were, while the Special Edition model will get an infusion of matte-chrome chain mail within its Alfa Romeo-esque nose ports. Could Farago's review have reached the top of Fuji Heavy's food chain, leading to the redesign? Or did someone in the corporate office get the same Rorsarch test score?
