New F150 looks like a...

Is it just me or do the new trucks look like a dodge? I heard it was an attempt at getting the looks of the F1... I think it's way off, would love to see a 60's or 70's retro truck...

The stang, camaro, challenger and charger are pretty good, we need a truck...

Any opinions on the new look?

The only truck that Ford has built over the years that I wasn't immediately taken by was the 1997-2003 gen trucks, most notably, the Screws. Oddly enough as we approach 20 years of service for this gen, there are tons of them still working hard every day.

The point? I'm loving the new body and I think it will outlast anything that's currently in production.

I think the new rams look horrible and I don't see any similarities.

The one thing I hate about the new Ram 1500 is the rear suspension and the fact that in the 2003 MY they dropped the Dana solid axle in the 1500.

I like the new F150. I think it's a sharp looking truck. I am looking forward to buying one in 2016.

My favorite look as a kid was the 1978-1979 years. I think just like when the 2009's came out, some had to get used to the less conservative look, we'll get used to the 2015's. I'll be ready for another one when 2016 rolls along, so it should be interesting to see how well the new truck is received.

The front end on a Ram truck has zero resemblance to the new ford f150.

There's a 2000-ish Screw that parks near my work. Looks very mint. Compared to my 2012, it's a pretty stubby truck, but I have to admit, it looks pretty sweet to me now.

Back in the 1990's, I wasn't impressed with that styling at all.

I never like the "new generation" trucks for the first year or so.

I really wish I was like that. Anything new that comes out has a certain "Gotta have it!" factor for me with rare exception. I really like the looks of the new F150s and really can't wait to get one in my garage. Unfortunately with my wife's and my education plans that may be a bit longer than I would like.

I'm not really seeing much fiat resemblance here.

No, I don't see a resemblance at all either, if anything the F150 is leaning more to the current Super Duty look, IMO. I Like it. I don't see a lot of Tundra-esq looks either. As of now, I like the design, but who knows how we will like it until we are actually standing next to it but, I think Ford has hit another home run!
