Posting furiously from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, John sends us these pictures of the Ford Super Chief introduction. Ford's official press release about the multi-fuel truck is in our earlier post here, but Ford design guru J. Mays expanded a bit on the truck's design theme, inspired by the famous Santa Fe Super Chief transcontinental train, saying that the interior strove for an "observation car" look. More pics after the jump...

      Is it me or do I see a little Ridgeline in this concept?

      i think everyone is taking this way to serious. its a concept. a very pretty concept. its not a ridgeline, because a ridgeline isnt a truck. we've all seen the pretty concept vehicle go into production and turn into a practical vehicle. what this does show is the gap between the new 2006/2007 super duty and what is to come in 2010/2011? it gives you styling ques to whats to come in 2006/2007. the alternative fuel idea is great but the infastructure wont be in place in the next 5 years.

      Awesome looking concept. But all I see is a Super Sport Trac. Why is the cab longer and seem to have more cargo space than the truck bed itself?? When I think truck, I think big trcuk bed for hauling without the need for extenders and trailers. Otherwise, why not buy a Semi-truck (besides cost)?

      Hmm, is that a honda? Yep, looks like a Honda!!!

      Ridgeline? No way- other than it being a truck! The Ridgline is unibody this is not. The doors are the same styling as the current F-150. This is beast built by a company that knows trucks. Not a wannabe.

      Honda-like or not, the exterior styling is excellent. The interior is way overdone if not cheesy. I'm all for luxurious amenities in trucks but the way this concept's interior is done shows bad taste and nothing else.
