Last week we saw a picture of a heavily-camouflaged 2008 Ford Super Duty; this week brings additional shots of vehicles in more revealing livery - something that looks more like Mossy Oak. The sharp eye of Chris Doane found three examples - a single-rear-wheel truck, a dually, and a medium-duty flatbed - undergoing hot-weather testing in the desert.

The most obvious change is in the area of the headlights, with these vehicles sporting lamps that look much like the Ford Tonka concept of several years ago. The hood has a less-prominent budge than the current Super Duty, and the front fenders appear flatter along their upper edge. The openings in the front bumper appear to be larger and the grille has grown in height, likely to accommodate the increased cooling needs of a more powerful twin-turbo diesel. Those who tow trailers on a regular basis will likely appreciate the mirrors, which appear to be only slightly smaller than the average billboard and carry relatively large turn signals.

A peek at the interior shows some styling cues from the contemporary F-150, but it's hard to say what trim level we're seeing. A final assessment will have to wait until all the pieces are in place and the data acquisition equipment is removed.

      It is nice to see someone put the headlights low, for optical compatibility with cars.

      Look closely at the side view mirrors in the interior shot. They're a different style.

      Not a bad interior for a work truck. I'll reserve judgement for the exterior until the production truck arrives but as of now I'm not sure about it. The current Super Duty sliding mirrors are fantastic for towing, especially those big panel trailers.

      The SuperDuty has always had two different mirror styles. The larger ones (seen on the exterior shots) are the optional towing mirrors which have upper flat glass and lower convex glass for wider angle view. Otherwise the SuperDuty comes standard with much smaller flat glass sideview mirrors.
