Yes that is very disappointing why don't they use the new F150 tail lights at least?

Re: First Next-Gen Ford F-Series Super Duty Prototype Spotted

A design studio is wise to keep in mind the complete dominance of function over form in pickups. Most attempts to alter that dynamic with more dominance of form have seem to have failed in the past. Constraint properly executed will go a long way.

Those pics make it look like Ford is trying to take the title of roomiest cab away from the Ram Mega Cab. It looks like you could haul a Fiesta in the back seat. Seems over the top, especially if the SD has a back seat as big & comfortable as the F150.

Spied: 2015 Ford Super Duty F-350 Dualie



We now have our first shots of a next-generation Ford F-350 dualie prototype caught running the streets of Dearborn, Mich. This dual rear-wheel, wide-body Super Duty prototype shows that development of Ford's revamped heavy-duty pickup trucks is running at full steam, with multiple cab and body configurations flying off the pilot assembly lines.

The Super Duty dualie prototype maintains the look of the model we saw recently with a heavily camouflaged cab. Given the massive size of the cab (mega sized?), it could be something similar to the MegaCab found in Ram 2500/3500 HD pickups. It's still unclear whether this prototype's cab is truly that large or if it's a trick of the camouflage, which may falsely extend past the prototype's C-pillar design.

Re: First Next-Gen Ford F-Series Super Duty Prototype Spotted

So when will we see a three-row pickup???

I believe that GM (maybe Ford too) toyed with the idea of a 6-door, 3-row Suburabn at one point... wonder if we'll ever see such a beast.

Why would they need to? They've built 4-door, 3-row versions for decades.
