FIG. 1 is a front elevational view of a left vehicle lower grille showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is a left side elevational view of the vehicle lower grille;

FIG. 3 is a right side elevational view of the vehicle lower grille;

FIG. 4 is a top plan view of the vehicle lower grille;

FIG. 5 is a bottom plan view of the vehicle lower grille; and,

FIG. 6 is a rear elevational view of the vehicle lower grille.

The vehicle lower grille is styled independently of adjacent vehicle panels. To the extent that any feature lines are illustrated, they are intended to illustrate the crest and valley of the feature and are not necessarily sharp bends in the part. Shading is used to illustrate the curvature of the part and not color. Areas shown in or sounded by broken lines are not claimed. Any functional features of the vehicle lower grille are not claimed. Views are orthogonal projections unless otherwise noted. The various views are not necessarily to scale in order to better illustrate the design.
