    It's a baaaad mofo. No pics of the all-new interior yet though, but it might be the first ever heavy-duty truck interior that doesn't suck.

    I think it's a very nice and long overdue styling improvement. And much much better looking than the F-150.

    This truck looks aggressive and distinctive. The F-150 looks fat, soft, bland and generic. The new Silverado and Sierra GM iaren't much better. When I think of what a real truck looks like something like this new Super Duty springs to mind.

    Let's face it, if you're going to drive a big truck and put up with all the compromises over a car it had better have the looks that make small children wide-eyed and tough cowboy guys grin.

    This is definitely one of the very few vehicles Ford does right in the US.

    the interior does need work. Buddy of mine has an 06 king ranch f-350 and the SEATS are great but everything else is still :ugh: Very strange juxtaposition.
