    Earlier this morning Ford revealed the Atlas Concept truck, a preview of the next-generation F-150. The truck was somewhat of a surprise from the show. Please watch this post for more live shots in the coming days.

    Decent looking truck for a concept. I thought people hated the 3 piece bumper when Chevy did it?

    It just looks like an evolution of the current SD trucks in the front and a MCE of the regular F Series in the rear.

    2010 Black Impala SS(my baby)
    2009 Gold Yukon Denali(wife drives it)

    It has that truck look that I like. Though I see those stacked headlights and crossbar on the grille.

    I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster

    GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.

    You have to study this hard to find much difference. This is really Ford's attempt to "rain on the parade" of the '14 Silvy? Notsomuch.

    Dig the gear shifter!

    That Truck looks like a mammoth!
    What is happening to the GM that grew up with for these many decades? If I could I would institute a hostile take over and kick the entire board and executives out and fill the positions with creative minds under the age of 35.

    Re: Live Shots: Ford Atlas Concept

    The roof/ladder rack sytsem is a cool idea. The rest of the truck looks too cartoonish for me. But I've always been partial to my old Sierra and Sonoma designs. Give me the new Sierra with a GM version of that roof/ladder rack system. Of course my opinion of this vehicle's looks is colored by my distaste for Ford's recent design style, I know Ford fanboys will be drooling over this and saying GM needs to redesign their trucks before they even come out.

    Re: Live Shots: Ford Atlas Concept

    it looks like the 2013 F-150 with a slightly modified hood, a new front end, new tail lights & a roof that'll (in my opinion) never see production. Yes I think it'd be a "nice" 2014 F-150, I just wish they would go more extreme for a "concept" truck to test possible future styling ideas. While I don't love the Chevy concept below, they took it to extremes, missed some things but probably received a lot of feedback on the ideas.

    Re: Live Shots: Ford Atlas Concept

    I am suprised at how similar it looks to the current truck. With the spy pics we have seen I was expecting something different. Over all it looks good though, I like the superduty influnce.

    I noticed the toggle type switches that everyone hated on the twins. Now on Ford will be the great advance since sliced bread. Much on this will never see light of day on production model.

    Wow...very underwhelmed. I guess they're following GM and think that truck buyers are satisfied with the status-quo.
    Get used to more.

    I'm beginning to take a liking to the Silverado but it doesn't look any better than this Ford. Ford executed the "robotic/transformers-look" on this Atlas FAR better than GMC tried to with the Sierra.

    The irony of posts like these...



    Yeah, it's a rehash indeed... a rehash of the outcome, that is.

    Thanks to GM for making that so easy for everyone.
