2004 F150

Don't know if any got a glimps of the new F150 thats coming out later this year on TV from the autoshow or not. Here's Ford's link http://www.fordvehicles.com/index.asp
The trucks look more like a Super Duty line, I think the new trucks look bolder than ever, with some new features. Out of the Big Three, the Ford looks really good, but I'm a Ford man, so go figure.
Don't know when they will change the Super Duties, I know they just got the new PSD, but if they will redesign the exterior.
Can't wait to get my hands on a new PSD with a dumper someday when I get the money

looks very similar to the current (not a bad thing). interior interesting, but busy. i wonder if the working man will like such a contemporary interior.

i think the new ram interior is nicer-more traditional.


the current f-150 design is seven yrs old, i think the super duty is much more recent-probably not going to change soon. trucks tend to have long lifespans.

really, for most here an f150 isn't enough truck.

Yeah Ill agree with you, the interior is alittle different. But these F150's are turning into family cars now, not really work trucks. Just saw last night on the news on how Ford has been working twoards advertising to women more driving the big Super Duties and the F150's.
For us on here the F150's are a bit light duty, but for driving around for personal use, looks like a nice looking truck. Yeah the Super Duties will probably stay the same for a few more years, cause it looks and sounds like a work truck.
