Good Lawd that thing is huge. And that panoramic roof is going to look like a sky dome when sitting inside.

That's fckin MASSIVE. Cool. There's definitely going to be more F-150 in the Super Duty than past years, though, design wise. I am very happy about that.

Really looks massive, but that's kind of the point of a work truck, right?! I'm glad it's being differentiated from the F-150. A family look is important, but they shouldn't be too similar.

I thought that the military grade aluminum in the bed of the F-150 was stronger than steel to justify being in the bed of the F-150. Using the same Aluminum in the bed of the Super Duty will also be a selling point for the durability of the F-150. I would also think that buy sticking with an all aluminum body and bed, the aluminum volume increases and costs go down overall, along with no need for welding equipment just for a metal bed. Check the video about the F-150 production, and notice how much quieter and cleaner it is, with riveting and no loud welding, sparks, etc.

Design looks simple and purposeful, and not terribly similar to the F-150 sheetmetal. The interior however shares most of it's parts with the F-150.
