Functional Body with Distinctive Styling

New for 2007, the Element LX and EX don a new grille and headlights with black inner surfaces. The Element body incorporates composite body panels on the fenders that are more dent resistant than steel panels. The composite body panels are black on the Element LX and body-colored on the Element EX and SC. The side cargo doors provide a large opening for ease-of-loading. The rear tailgate drops down pickup style, creating a low load-in height as the rear window opens up to create a large canopy for protection from sun and rain. Element LX and EX models equipped with Real Timeв„ў 4WD feature a large 20-by 30-inch rear skylight that tilts up and can be removed.

The Element SC's exterior styling exhibits a sophisticated performance attitude with exclusive features that include projector beam halogen headlights, custom front and rear painted bumpers, large alloy wheels, custom grill, and a lowered stance. The lowered stance is achieved by lowering the ride height and by using uniquely shaped painted side sills and slimmer roof moldings.
