FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the vehicle lower grille;

FIG. 2 is a front view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a bottom view thereof; and,

FIG. 4 is a left side elevation view thereof (where the right side elevation view is omitted since the right side elevation view is identical to the left side elevation view).

The portions shown by broken lines in the drawings and residing at a periphery of the vehicle lower grille form no part of the claimed design; and the broken line residing at an upper portion of the vehicle lower grille and within the periphery of the vehicle lower grille, as perhaps depicted best in FIG. 3, represents a body line of the vehicle lower grille and forms no part of the claimed design.
