Seems like a clear evolution of the current truck and will be a worthy successor. In other words pretty darn nice truck IMO.

Man that is sweet! Much more rugged looking which I like and the new tech, now that's just kicking it up a notch. Trailer backup assist, dynamic trailer assist, hidden cargo ramps, 360 degree view camera. Sure will make hooking up and parking that trailer a much simpler process

Sounds like it was built for camping... Ramps for the golf cart, trailer back up assist for hookup, active shutters to assist with cooling the engine. Pretty cool truck.

I just don't think that is likely. Huge penalty for the cost of diesel fuel vs gasoline in many areas. And the Ecoboost technology provides diesel-like torque.

It will be interesting to see what's new with the second generation Ecoboost. I'll bet that there will be smaller versions. I'd expect an 8 speed auto at some point too; if not inititally.

It's always fun to see the new stuff isn't it? Can be hard on the pocketbook though!
