Ford is also showing something on Friday morning at 10am for a 30-minute presentation. So they are showing something else. The F-150 HD is just an announcement so it's likely for the next generation coming soon. But it does seem like the Escape or even full-size Transit up date is being shown.

So fascinated with Ford's EcoBoost technology!!!

Re: 2019 Chicago Auto Show

Seen the new SD. Looks good, not unlike how F150 got a much better face makeover last time. And wait until you hear about engine specs

I figured the updated Transit would be shown but didn't think the updated Super Duty would be revealed in Chicago. I figured the Work Truck Show would be the venue for that.

Oh can't wait to hear the engine specs. I'm guessing the 7.3L gas V8 engine is being announced there as well as the updated diesel.

Re: 2019 Chicago Auto Show

I can't recall but, did Ford announce the 7.3L will be OHV yet? I think customers will love it as not only an ultra cheap alternative to Diesel like towing ability, but as a future upgrade path through aftermarket. It's been quite a while since Ford offered a single cam in block V8. Amazingly, it packages about the same size as the 5.0L in width and height.

I don't think it has been officially announced that the new 7.3L will have pushrods but it has been widely speculated here and elsewhere online. I also hear that it has similar size to the 5.0L as far as width and height which is actually fantastic, I think.

However, I'm curious where the confirmation that the updates of Transit and Super Duty are going to be there. I looked online and don't see any confirmation by Ford that they were going to be unveiled. I figured the all-new Escape would be shown. Where did 'badhac' find the schedule dates and times? I looked on the Chicago Auto Show website and could not find that. Hopefully there will be some live streaming sites to view the unveilings if not already planned on being shown on YouTube and Facebook live. Last year's Chicago show was pathetic where it wasn't shown on YouTube nor Ford's FB page and I had to look and look only to find one of the local Chicago news sites FB pages that was livestreaming it. I had tuned in to see Jim Belushi talking about Transit Connect before belting out some cheesy blues songs. Hopefully, this show will be much better in presentation as well as easily-found livestreamed on many sites.

LOL, did not mean to be. The updates are very small, I was just trying to frame it so that you all have a good idea of what is expected, relative to previous F150.
