    Looks pretty much the same to me. Different front end but not a drastic change....

    Is this just a MCE?? Otherwise pretty uneventful.

    Seriously, looks more like an MCE than all-new. I honestly expected more pronounced styling, perhaps even some references to past F-series.

    It does look... softer.

    Well, they better get those interiors updated because the GM MCE is going to come with new electronic architecture,
    The lights are looking more and more like GMC, not a bad thing

    It's much like the 2009 F-150, where it was an "all new" model but used the same cabin/door skins, but everything else was new.

    Interior shot very much like the current one with a bigger (well integrated) dell monitor over there. I like it, seems like the gauge cluster gets more tech too.

    I wonder if they will offer advanced HUD like GM.

    Still, at least those working on RAM and GM MCE's can see what they are up against... All RAM has to do is make its iPad more widely available at this point.

    It looks like the rear turn indicators are amber now (at least on one prototype) which I really like. I'd be interested to know why more domestic vehicles don't do that or at least use a separate element from the brake's indicator.

    It looks like the C-shaped DRLs drop down into the bumper now. Even though they look rather huge, I think it is a neat detail.

    The part that baffles me about this truck's exterior is their slow march towards a horizontally-split grille design. Not only have they apparently abandoned their segmented vertical theme but as it turns out their current double-bar horizontal motif was apparently just an interim design on their way to an unabashed horizontal single-bar grille... a la Chevrolet. No one is going to mistake this for a Silverado but in a three-brand exclusive segment battle, it seems Ford should do a better job staying in their lane styling wise.

    Interior look good and different. Exterior so far is a big yawn.

    In some countries rear turn signals are required to be amber. It is allowed in the US, but not required. Personally, I like the all red rear housing, aesthetically speaking. Plus only need to keep after one bulb, instead of multiple, not that they are at all expensive. Just that the idiot box behind the counter doesn't need another reason to screw it up.

    True on those counts but separate indicator elements for brakes and turns signals relays more information faster to vehicles following behind. Also, when a dual-purpose bulb does burn out you'll have lost the functionality of two indicators. What's bothering to me are taillights that appear designed to have separate-use lenses but don't function that way. The pre-facelifted Malibu comes to mind; I am a fan of the Malibu's design including the taillight lense but its one-bulb-for-all-uses makes it look unsophisticated and is more likely to result in misinterpretation of whatever information is being indicated.

    Personally I think depends on the vehicle whether amber or red turn indicators look better. However, I would still maintain that amber indicators are safer because their color has a dedicated meaning which makes for quicker interpretation of intent.

    Appears they kept the same cab "shell" GM and Ram, were playing catch-up, they needed to increase their cab, Ford didn't.

    I would be surprised if the body-lines are exactly the same.

    Correct; "mostly" they did stretch the cab at that point, adding the needed room for a more accommodating 2nd row; front doors grew 3 or 4" IIRC, that is when the 1/4-door was dropped on the regular cabs.
    (kind of amazing it took GM and Ram 10 years to catch-up)
