The Ford F-Series Super Duty pickup truck is a pretty big deal. Not only is it physically large and imposing, it's also a huge seller for Ford and a vehicle that practically generates its own weight in gold profit. That being the case, it's no surprise that Ford is keen to make some noise about a new trim level for the 2013 Super Duty.

Judging from the lone teaser image let out by Ford, we can all expect the 2013 F-Series Super Duty to retain its massive, upright and in-your-face grille, flanked on either side by squared-off headlamps. We'd also expect to see enough chrome to bling the teeth of a dozen rappers, though nothing much is visible behind the curtain of the image above.

What will the trim level be called? We have no idea, but Ford is announcing the truck alongside its Professional Bull Riding partner, so we're figuring there may be some sort of tie-in along those lines. In any case, we'll just have to wait until Friday, March 9 for all the details. Stay tuned, truck lovers, and feel free to click on the image above for the full-size version.

      Judging by the evolution of the Super Duty's design so far, I think it's safe to say the grille will consist of a single slab of chrome, spanning uninterrupted across the front end!

      Did someone finally make a grill bigger than the audi a8? I think maybe so.

        look at cars from the 70's... those grills are much bigger!

      So, the grill is going to be bigger and even more garish? The 1999-2007 were so much better looking.

      Hate it, and heres why: Halogen headlights and fog lights. Does Ford know its 2012? I can ALMOST forgive them for not haveing LED-everything (really, they should) but no bi-xenon projectors? C'mon.

        The HIDs would be at eye level height, blinding nearly everyone. That was the #1 reason why Lexus didn't put them on the LX so oncoming drivers wouldn't be blinded.

        Because maybe, bi-xenon projectors are expensive?

        Judging by your profile picture it looks like you have a Dodge Charger is it? After a 2010 model and doesn't Dodge know that this is the 2010's era and where are their LED-everything and what no bi-xenon projectors? C'mon Dodge!

          Actually, that looks like a Magnum.

      Its going to be big, imposing, heavily chromed in XLT+ trim, ugly outside and plain/boring/ugly inside, but every redneck ******* everywhere is going to buy one, and then rave about how FORD RULES! I don't need to see the big black sheet taken off of it to tell you that. Any additional questions?

      More chromed plastic? Sad day in the life of a truck. I like the current design of the HD Fords, but I absolutely hate the F-150's looks. I am more of a Dodge guy myself, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Powerstroke either.

      Every time I see one drive by, I am like man I wish I could drive one, but when I see one at the pump, I am like man I am glad I dont own one. But nonetheless I really like this vehicle.

      The first gen Super Dutys looked the best. I wish they could get the grilles looking more lean and classy looking like they did back then.

        I agree. But for some reason the marketing team decided that massive grilles and emblems the size of a smart car were cool. I would like to know where that information came from. . . .

      It may be a plug-in hybrid. That would be cool.

      The basic design will be 15 years old in 2013, so I'm guessing this will be another facelift. I still prefer the pre-2011 grille.

        Unless Ford has finally decided to start using the cab and box from the F150, then this "update" is a waste of time. Yeah yeah, the SuperDuty is profitable because it uses a 15 y/o design with only updating the front clip and chassis every 4 years, but the F150 cab and box are now 9 y/o so you'd think that there would be some economy in using the SAME body/box for all their trucks just like GM & Dodge and just "man-up" the front end. That change would benefit everyone - Ford has to spend less on tooling and passengers in SD extended cabs no longer have to fold their knees under their chin to ride in back. I swear the Geneva convention has rules against such torturous back seats...

      OOoh, I wonder if it'll have the same (yet reworked) overall body paneling from the super duty introduction in 1999? Ford was doing the similar with the Econoine series.
