I'm sure the capabilities of the truck will be fine but man is it ugly. I just can't get over that

I'm liking it..a lot..
Anything is better than the old, tired, worn to the bone design.
I think a Lariat or KR edition might change those who don't like it into fans, unless Ofcourse their payment books won't let them be honest.

I'm not a KR fan, but the latest Mesa color has changed my mind. I'm not a fan at all of the muted brushed nickel grille on the Platinum.

I like the KR more than the Platinum just because I like the brown interior over black. Looking forward to getting the details on payload and GVWR tomorrow on the F350 & F450.

I'm pretty excited about this next truck. They seem to of addressed all my major complaints about the current truck. The 6.7 seems like a reliable stout engine now too. The trans, same thing.

I'm very curious to see all the "big" changes made to the next SD. More importantly, I want to know all the details about it. I imagine we'll be waiting a while on that one. I need specifics to oooh and ahhh. It's hard to gauge how to feel about the truck based off of leaked photos. I am sure there will be things I like and things I dislike. I will admit that it took me a while to get used to the 08-10 trucks, but now love the style of them, and about the same with the '11+ trucks. The only thing holding me back at this point is cost to buy and run one. Hopefully my day will come. For now, I will continue to run older trucks and drive my silly Fusion hybrid for daily duties of getting my butt to work. It's not easy showing up on a jobsite as an industrial/commercial electrician in a hybrid.

Why does there have to be cheap black plastic exterior upper door pillar covers? We trying to blend the windows together? What's the deal with that style every car has been using since the 90's? I keep waiting for it to go away, and now it's on the super duty.
Why can't they have the body shaped around the glass instead of a "filler",
I want to just pry them off:



Other than that I like the style and the f150 cab is pretty well made as I have driven tons of them.

You guys really screwed up my beloved super duty. You should be ashamed of what you did. Tech and performance aside the looks went to hell big time

I'm not totally in love with the design but I think it will grow on me. My biggest dislikes are the grill design, the ugly vertical badge on the fender, and the shape of the rear door windows. The XL version with the black grill looks better, but I couldn't tell if the side badges are black also. I actually think the current generation interior looks better but the new one isn't that bad either. I do like the stance on the 250s they showed, they sit up high like a HD truck should.

Also, one of the articles said the 250 and 350 will have different frames and mentioned that the 250 will have a fully boxed frame and the larger chassis cabs will have a c channel. Does this mean that there might not be an F350 SRW model?

I actually think, based on the leaked photo from months ago, the end result looks pretty good. There will definitely be some things to get used to, but overall I think it's a decent looking truck. I tend to hold back on my final opinion on looks until I can see a few different models, and even more so, in person. It's still conservative some, while still updating. I can't say that I see it as an "all new" truck. After all, it's still a massive square truck. I like it, but there's only so much you can do.

Not many applauses in the reveal video. I think that speaks for itself. I must say the XL trucks with the black grill looks much better then the chrome ones in the higher models but it will still take a whole lot of getting used to

What was with the woman acting like some sort of a truck expert? Laughable beyond words. As for the 350 weight savings? From the looks of the so called fans they more than lose that differential when they cram in behind the steering wheel. And how much for the new 2017 dressed out F-250? How about $80K? Unbelievable.
