I do like the front end appearance better than my 15 and like the fact that they listened to us and ditched the farm implement rear fenders on the dually..
One of the concerns I have would not actually impact me but it would my wife - who is all of 5'6"..
The trucks sit 1.5" taller due to the new boxed frame. That will make it tougher for my wife to get in-out of it.. With two brand new knees having been installed last June - she ain't jumping anywhere for a while..
The other is the door handles. They apparently switched away from the sideways (horizontal) latch to one that is vertical. If the truck is taller and now you have to lift the door latch (can't see if it is a button or a lift type), that might make for some strained fingers / broken nails on her..
The only other slight negative I have noticed is that the side windows are shorter and so there is a decrease in side visibility. This was one of the things I really liked about my Super Duty...

Yeah, It's already grown on me since yesterday. I'd be interested in what upgrades the F450 received in regards to axle and suspension.

So, I'm wondering if I should have waited for the 2017 or if I should just trade in in 2 years (after some bugs are worked out). I thinking I could go for the job 2 build in 2nd qtr 2017 model. Maybe even purchase in early 2018 if I feel inclined.

The things that I like the most:
1. 360 Camera (about time)
2. Front Parking Sensors (about time)
3. Trailer Camera! That's awesome
4. Trailer TPMS Monitor!
5. Improved Man Step
6. Hopefully still a Dana110 or larger rear axle
7. Better interior materals (even though I'm pretty happy with mine)
8. QNX Nav System (even though mysync has been working great for me thus far)

wow look at this quote. I didn't realize that the cab is the same cab from the F150. I guess this is how they reduced production cost. I do like that they kept the round fenders and didn't copy GM with the squared ones.
"ike the new-for-2015 F-150, the new Super Duty’s body will be made of aluminum which we’re told will save up to 350 pounds over steel construction. In fact, Ford-Trucks.com’s Chad Kirchner says “the cab itself is a common piece shared with the F-150.” But the bed, fenders, hood, and front end are of course unique to Super Duty."

An intresting tibit:

"
Adaptive steering provides for increased confidence to help make towing the heaviest of loads easier and brings greater ease to navigating job sites and parking lots – with or without a trailer. The technology reduces the amount of steering input needed to change direction at low speed, while reducing sensitivity to steering input at higher speeds."

Wonder if this will be a completely electronic system for steering or a hydraulic/electronic hybrid?

That is the final nail in the coffin for buyers like me.
I like the fact that Fords F150 and SD line had two different (with the SD being larger) bodies.
Now they are just like the GM offerings?
But some of don't want a smaller more civilized truck.
What's next? IFS?

Any word on emissions system changes and if there is now a 9th injector in the exhaust system rather than pushing the fuel for regeneration through the left cylinder bank on the exhaust stroke?

I have not seen anything yet in the documents.

My hunch is nothing will change

If they are using F150 cabs to reduce costs, I don't think they are going to add a ninth injector.

Yep, Looks like the next truck I would even look at to get is the NEXT redesign, because this one is a joke. I'll be keeping my truck for a VERY long time. I mean, if they would re-design the headlights, I could maybe like it a little more, but I doubt that will happen.

Actually, the F150's crew cab has been larger than the SD for quite a while... at least the back seat area. Much better for passengers.

That's a cool find. High end cars like BMW have been using a system like this for years.

I've looked at a few threads here and have seen many of the pictures. I think it looks nice. It's not "I got to sell my 2015" nice but it's nice enough. I don't think it different enough to bring people from other brands to the camp but it's nice enough to keep the camp happy.

I wish they would have been bolder.
