Loved them! Ford gets an A+ for styling in my book!

I predict Ford will extend their sales lead even more over GM and Dodge with this design. They are light-years ahead.

Saw a pic of one on the msn home page today. The front end styling is really clean. I'll have to wander down to the local dealer(when they're closed ) and take a look.

Ford was supposed to unveil the New F-150 today. Just so happens that we have a Mustang Club meeting at a local dealership this evening. I wonder if they have one. LOL

It's funny how they are trying to build up suspense over the unveiling of the new F-150 like they did with the '64 1/2 Mustang.

Oh I think they've gotta winner with this one.
The consol shifter in the FX4 model is a really cool feature.

I saw a supercab 4X4 at a car show a couple weeks ago,and the interior was just magnificent. The price was a beating,though.

Got to see a couple of the new crew cabs tonight. I like the new styling. It looks sharp. The one thing that stood out was how deep the bed of the truck is. It's got to be 8 to 12 inches deeper than the previous models. Makes it easier to haul dirt or mulch or what ever. But a pain to bend over the side to grab something out of the back.

I really like the new trucks too, But the one big drawback for me is the regular cabs, with the side glass extending past the door, Am I the only one who thinks this would better suit a Toyota? Other than that they are super sweet trucks & the quiet interior idea is great.

Yeah, I like the regular cab in my '94.

I seen the video on the F150...are they undermining the F250 now?
That truck is simply amazing!
Problem is, to get the features like leather seating and over/blinged 18" wheels, I could just go out and get a used F250, because they're still nice, and they'll be alot less than a new F150.
And all the new power features...well, will I need ASE certification to figure out the variable cam timing, electronic throttle control, and those little intake flapper thingies?
Too much voodoo for me to contend with, but Ford has come out with an awesome truck...just the interior alone has me drooling.
