2016 Super Duty The new 2016 Ford F250, F350, F450 and F550 Super Duty

If the next Super Duty had the same cab as the new F150, would you approve?

The exterior widths are at the widest point of the body excluding mirrors. That definitely ain't the case in the greenhouse area which is where the shoulder room is needed. I know that my SD has a wider interior than my 06 F150 had. And fractions of an inch make a lot of difference overall.
SD shoulder room=68" SD hip room=67.6"
F150 shoulder room=66.6" hip room=66.6"

Do you think they built it for fun? What would make you question it?

I can't speak for anyone else but I think some of us are having a hard time believing that's it because you know look at the picture and color it's just so well, ugly and blahh. I do agree that's it but just sad like many others. Looks like a 80 year old Lincoln owner would love it, just add some wood grain maybe a CB antenna , instant family truckster. Fugly

LOL


I don't believe anything I see on the internet until it comes from a reputable source. I saw a new Bronco on here too but I wasn't holding my breath for that either.

Hmmm, now that you mention it, it does look a lot like the family truckster.

My impression was that someone photoshopped a mid-90's Chevy pickup. Notice the same styling points; full front grill, wrap around front bumper, no body character lines up high near the belt line.

I hope it's a joke, with that styling by the design shop of Bland and Boring.

That's what everyone said about the 08's. Those turned out to be my favorite so far. Hard to judge from a crappy cell phone pic. I'll give my opinion when I see it in person.

The more i look at this, the more im thinking its a photoshop. Where the a pillar meets the fender looks very similar to the atlas concept, although that could be a carry over anyway. If you look at the front wheel well, there seems to be no reflections on the flare and the flare seems to disappear going to that chrome side emblem. Also if you look at the guy behind the truck, his torso seems to disappear where the grill starts. In fact, the whole right front of the truck seems to disappear. Could be the crappy picture, but im thinking photoshop.

Every single "spy" shot taken of the 2017 Super Duty test mules confirms that the new Super Duty shares a cab in common with the aluminum 2015 F-150. The trick is to look at the hard parts that cannot be easily disguised... the door openings for example. The use of inlaid doors was the first clue, easily seen last year when the test mules wrapped under solid black camo still had 2014 front clips cobbled onto the aluminum common cab of the future. Look at parts that have to be used by the test drivers. The door pulls for example. Recognize that the most recent test mules, vinyl wrapped with psychedelic black and white wraps, still have stuffing underneath them to distract less observant people from the design details. Notice the "mega cab" add ons? How about the outside rear view mirror top corner camfers being filled to square them off under the wrap? Take a look at the stuffing on top of the hood at the corners, to distort the hood lines. Or look at how the dip in the front side windows is covered over. Or the stuffing over the dully fender. Try to see past the stuffing, and look at the immutable parts that move. You will see the new F-150 with a different front clip.

I agree. The more I look at the reflections in the chrome, it does not add up. The colors and reflections clearly indicate different conditions, and totally warm and cold lighting that don't realistically show on the truck. Even the chair or object in front of the truck does not reflect in the chrome.
So much is just piecemealed together, it does NOT say Ford at all. The poor depiction of the bed height is not something that Ford would do. To drop the bed rail two inches and leave that ugly and blunt transition is something Ford would not do. If it does not blend and flow, we won't see it. Same with the chrome side emblem... it looks like the thing was cut and stuck on. I can't see Fird using the door edge as the cut for the side emblem... It looks afterthought. The new Superduty will look tough and sinister, not whimpy and flaccid like this pic. Wait. We'll all see.
