Not only are Ford engineers playing with front-end aerodynamics, they're also looking to include more upscale lighting choices, most likely on upper trim packages. And we wouldn't be surprised if active shutters in the grille are under there as well. We think it's curious that the two headlights seem to be covered with material of different size and shape.
We also like the fact that engineers are playing with grille styling, injecting a little bit of Super Duty attitude into the lighter-duty option. The two-bar grille with the F-250/F-350 signature outer vice brackets could imply that this regular-cab long bed is slated for more severe work duty. This photo goes not give away what that means for what sits under the hood or how strong the frame and chassis are.
Although these pre-production models are running around with EcoBoost tags on the doors, there could be something more unique being tested. Still, with the announcement that production is ramping up at the EcoBoost engine plant in Brook Park, Ohio, we're sure Ford is going to continue producing as many of the V-6 twin-turbos as people want to buy, which seems to be quite a lot each month.
