The 2008 Ford F-150 Lariat Limited was announced weeks ago by Ford, but the Oval only just got around to releasing a couple of photos of it. We don't know what took them so long, seeing as this Lariat's a bit of a looker. Sporting a White Sand Metallic finish that also trims the grillework and the factory 22-inchers, the snappy-looking SuperCrew doesn't stop there. Chrome running boards, gray headlight bezels, smoked taillamp lenses, a two-tone leather-trimmed interior and some other cabin accents round out the new limited package. Sorry, no pricing yet. Maybe one of these days, Ford'll actually get around to releasing a shot of the fancy interior, too.

UPDATE: Video added after the jump, including interior. Thanks, Zymo.

      "What's with Americans and pick-up trucks??? They are pigs to drive and they are ugly as hell."

      They are a do everything vehicle. Back in the 70`s cars were capible of pulling trailers. Now days if you do anything beyond transporting people you need a truck of some sort.

      Doesn't look significantly different than the current F150 does- wasn't the '08 said to be "all new"? If so, why did they bother? Nice looking truck that basically will go unnoticed in traffic, at least around here where every other vehicle on the road is an F150 of some sort.

      Nasty color, too. Wait til someone tries to match THAT after a scratch or fender bender!

        Actually, the "all- new" Ford F-150 will be the 2009 model year. They continue to add options and equipment to the current rig to stay fresh against the likes of the competition. I personally cannot wait to see what the '09 will look like. Also, I sure do hope they increase power in their engines.

        OK, I'm getting a year ahead of myself, apparently. I'd like to see a small diesel (150-200 hp) in the F150 with about, oh, 235 ft-lb torque, in a work truck. Not all of us have monster trailers or huge loads to haul around, but there are a lot of us who'd like to have the efficiency- and often lower fuel costs- of a diesel, in a truck. And they need to pay attention to the work truck end of the spectrum, too- you know, the versions with manual windows, manual transmissions and vinyl floor coverings. Very hard to find such a truck in this area; everybody buys the luxoboats. Keep it SIMPLE!

      I drive a BMW 4.8is and it will pull anything that old Ford will pull and more! Besides, I can take a turn without risk... and i can brake.. it will do 145mph and it looks good.

        Lets hit the trails buddy,this is a true 4x4 , Then we'll haul some gravel and sheets of plywood, and put 4 guys fairly comfortably in there while we do it.


        Hate to say it but thats a damn good looking ford.

        "drive a BMW 4.8is and it will pull anything that old Ford will pull and more! "

        Where do you put the fifth wheel? On the roof?

        Your Beeeeemer will be good at towing a lawnmower. Strap a covered 24' trailer with a race car to that thing and watch how crappy it is. You fraud.

      Just what we need, another large truck that will see no real work. Just an SUV.

      I like how it is parked in two handicapped spaces. It must be a premonition of how it will be parked in the real world.

      f'n Fords!

        That's right it's parked in two handicapped spaces... F*** cripples.

      edvard grieg's 'morning mood' ... no idea why thats playing.

      Oh great, can you do me a favour then? I have a motorcycle I need you to put in the back of your BMW, do you think you could pick it up this afternoon?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Sure, I'll hook up to the back, no probs.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Some pick-ups and SUV's are used for work and they are needed. One like this Lariat will probably not be used to do any work just to move a driver around from place to place. It's meant to look good and stay clean and unscratched, so it's wasteful.

      I went mountain-biking yesterday with my mountain bike in my Saab hatchback, (without removing any of the bicycle wheels), and it annoyed me to see how many SUV's had racks to carry their bicycles on the hitch or on the roof. Isn't that what the utility part of SUV is supposed to be for?... carrying stuff?

      That music is awful but the truck is beautiful! I love the white sand color. Why is anyone even arguing with FAB? He does not know trucks and what they are capable of. No one truly knows how useful they are until you own one. There is nothing like it and nothing more capable vehiclewise in this world than a truck!

        "Looks gayish to me"

        Explain what looking "gayish" means.

      Jeremy Clarkson (TOP GEAR) tested the F150.. Check it out on You Tube.. It's a laugh!
        • 7 Years Ago
        Jeremy Clarkson tested the last model F-150, SVT Edition. Quite different then the current F-150. I don't quite see your point though. Your saying a overweight British bloke who hates all things American said a 6 year old pickup truck was rubbish. He purposely makes those reviews to go against the vehicles. Like when he took the Hummer H1 to some small cottage town and drove it down the narrow streets, then criticized it for being to big. Bring it over here to America, it fits just fine on our roads.

        I'm gonna make the assumption you drive a X5, all you said was 4.8is. If so the F-150 could haul a bed full of plywood, 4 guys, and a trailer with your overpriced SAV (BMW insists it's a Sport Activity Vehicle) on it.

        But you spent $54,500 (U.S. price for a new X5 4.8i) on your X5 before options. Let's ballpark it to $60,000. You can get a King Ranch Supercrew 4x4 F-150 for under $40,000. It can tow more, carry more, and go more places than your piece of junk for $20,000 less. If it was me, I'd take the F-150 and the 20 grand.
