I like the fact the cabs are different but at the same time I would not mind them being the same. The overall body should still be different though... I have a super duty, not a 1/2 ton...........

I would hope that the front would be lengthened enough that it would not be necessary to remove the cab for major engine repairs like the 96 design was. I know that won't happen, but we can hope. I always hope that Ford designs a truck that the time required (labor) to repair would be lower and Ford as well as the others always disappoint me. Henry Ford is rolling over in his grave about this I'm sure. That was the premise under which he founded the company.

Exactly. I'm only 5"10 so the i don't need anymore leg room, but if the interior feels too closed in to me, its a on sale. I like the taller roof and extra width the superduty had to offer. Don't like the "chop top" look of the current f150's.

I think they need to keep the body styles the way they are. They are two different classes of trucks and should remain discernible. I'm off my soap box now...

The 2011+ front grill is so ugly I bought a 2010 F250 as soon as I saw the hideous grill. When it was time to upgrade four years later in Jan 2013 I picked up a Lariat ecoboost 150. You 2011 people who like the front grills are blind.

I find the F150 is very car or SUV like in both ride and looks. The SD trucks are more truck like and that's what I like in a truck. Huge interior spaces and truck-like ride. I hope that the two models never share a cab.

I like that Ford offers two different truck experiences though. The F150 for some and the SD for others.

Bruce, I agree with you 100%. I had a 2005 SD and went to an 06 F150 when the 6.0L was going south. F150 was too car-like for me and marginal for towing my car hauler, so I went back to an 08 Diesel SD. I like the room in the cab better and the 6.4 PS is a good engine once deleted.

Ford used the same body on the 1/2 ton, 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks from the post war F-1/2/3 to the late 90's F-150/250/350. I would not mind if they went back to that model, although I'm sure that is they did it would just be so they could squeeze more profit out of each truck.
