Does everyone like the vertical "F-350" etc badge or does anyone prefer horizontal?

I'm curious as to whether everyone prefers the new vertical fender badging, or if some prefer the previous horizontal style.

Thoughts?

I prefer the old horizontal style, but will admit I am getting used to the new vertical layout.

Vertical give the new model year a fresh look, and the appearance of a taller truck.

I did not care for it originally, but it has grown on me. The badge placement has moved over the years. Prior to 2011 it was much larger and used colors to indicate Gas V Diesel. I think each series being different is preferable.

Are you talking about the 2008-2010 versions? Did red denote the Powerstroke? I never knew this.

I would agree that the vertical is growing on me, but I still prefer the horizontal.

In regard to new products, it's all about change. Some changes aren't better but change is necessary as the market doesn't like to buy "old" products.

I like the 2017 badging. It's original and they way the truck should look for the model year.

Yep it did.

The vertical has grown on me, I'm about 50/50 though so I'll abstain from voting.
