Armed with the latest sets of spy photos and insider information, our friends over at PickupTrucks.com have created an illustrated rendering of what they think the 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty will look like.
It's definitely bolder and more masculine, which is the direction that the Blue Oval seems to be taking with its heavy haulers over the last few generations, and it appears to take its basic inspiration from the F-250 Super Chief concept from the 2006 Detroit Auto Show.

Under that bulging hood will reportedly sit either a 6.2-liter gasoline-fed V8 engine or Ford's newly-developed 6.7-liter Scorpion diesel V8, the pair of which are new engines that replace the existing 5.4-liter Triton and 6.4-liter Powerstroke. Interestingly, both of these new powerplants will reportedly be paired exclusively with automatic transmissions.

      Well, why doesn't Ford update the Ranger series? Doesn't have to have all that flash, but, if that's what the customers wants. Give it to them.

      It needs to be mproved and then it can sell well.

      Ford should also think of a smaller compact pick up as well.

      The is a market for it. If someone builds one.

      Please, Ford, make it taller, and make the sides higher. I can still reach inside (barely). I want to use a ladder. Please.

      Ford's designers need to break all their rulers in half. All their current designs are stiff, boring rectangle boxes with massive, glowing, cheesy, boxed in grills.

      This truck looks like the Super Chief, Tonka, and the Gens 2 and 3 got together and were like, okay. We are going to rock the truck world's s#$@.

      I love it. But with such sharp angles, it's starting to look almost...dare I say...Silverado-ish.
        • 5 Years Ago
        what!?!? Silverado!?!?

        It looks more like the Tonka concept which was probably the coolest truck concept ever... the fact Ford has UNIQUE styling with their trucks is what makes them so sweet.... not to mention capability over competition....

        this rendering is very 'Tonka-ish' if anything.

      Yeah - it needs to be bigger, have more shiny chrome, loud V8 noises and have a hood higher than Everest to better enable my empowerment fantasies and mask my deep feelings of inadequacy.

        did something bigger than 8800 gvwr Punch your grandmother or something at one point? Is that why you hate on it?

        My father (48 yr old software company CEO/rich guy/horse trainer/marathon runner) has a plain green base XL '08 F250 SD which is his DD... damn thing look so purpose built... then you see it pull into a business complex, and a guy in a $3k suit hops out ready to talk to Private Equity firms about whatever it is Private Equity firms talk about.

        ...only occasionally does he slip into work in his '05 Caddy DHS with that unnerving mirage paint scheme.

        A rare breed, yes. lol

        The truck is the spiritual successor to his red '94 F350 XL 5.8/5spd manual which was always a tight riding truck since it was rarely over-beaten. I put the most wear & tear on it in the 55k our family owned it ('93-'99)... I put a burnout-filled redline-smacking gear grinding 10k on it, hauled a lot of sawdust and drove it with a big full water tank in the bed a lot of the time (1997, I was 19, it was my DD for a few months while my truck was being built).

        This new truck.. heck he hardly goes over the speed limit in it. He puts his cup of tea on the tranny tunnel for his 40 minute commute over dirt roads and other crap driving surfaces, and it doesn't budge.

        Mind you, on the quarter horse farm it does a bit of work, but it hasn't had a 5th wheel hitch installed (I think the old man thinks the 5.4 etc couldn't handle a horse trailer with some horses in it... even though he got along fine in the early '80''s with a Federal Emissions-crippled '77 rust brown 2wd Chevy dually with a 454.

        Except for him, every other SD owner I've known or seen takes their truck to the limit regularly.

        lol my neck just got a lil' red. I'm gonna go out to my garage & fondle my Maxima now.

      OK. Nice truck, but, how about putting some money and style into the Ranger series.

      Give it the same tough truck look, more efficient engines, including a turbo diesel and watch the sales go up!

      Come on this is easy stuff FORD!!!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Sure, because money grows on trees...

      "both of these new powerplants will reportedly be paired exclusively with automatic transmissions."

      Oh no, please don't drop the manual transmission. These Super Duty series are the last remnants of MT in trucks.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Meh. I haven't really liked the front end of the recent generation Super Dutys (not "Duties", "Dutys"; it's a proper noun); while I admire this truck for doing what it does extremely well, the look hasn't ever really appealed to me.

      "Interestingly, both of these new powerplants will reportedly be paired exclusively with automatic transmissions."

      just saying but why is it interesting that these powerplants are coming with automatic trans? I dont think ive seen a super duty or any modern heavy duty truck with anything but an automatic..


      --Please dont make that thing bigger than it already is, that baby takes up a solid lane of traffic already.

        If you look up the spyshots for the new Scorpion diesel going into this thing, you'd realize the need for the large grill. The radiator is so large that it had to be tilted back to fit under the hood.

        Please Ford
        Make the Grills much larger.
        You need a lot more chrome all over the vehicle.
