Our Dearborn, Mich., spies are seeing more prototype light-duty trucks shifting from one building to the next. Here's their latest report:
"Here are the first shots of a 2015 Ford F-150 in its SuperCab configuration. It's the first time we've seen the next F-Series in something other than a crew-cab configuration.
"Although we can't be certain, judging from the proportions and the camouflage, it appears Ford will keep a rear-hinged set-up for the rear doors. If this holds true, it means that Ford has chosen not to match one of the bigger changes made to the 2014 Chevy Silverado double cab and GMC Sierra double cab, where those models have switched from rear-hinged access doors to front-hinged. It now appears that we see a clear-cut point of distinction that will separate the next-generation pickups from Ford and GM.
"In addition to the long bed, the wheels looks quite small in this configuration, which could perhaps be a nod toward maximum fuel efficiency. We still haven't had a chance to check the F-Series' body panels to test rumors of an aluminum-intensive design to see just how aggressively Ford has attacked the weight issue on its new trucks."
Don't be surprised if you see spy photographers getting more aggressive with these prototype pickup trucks as more information about the 2015 F-150 trickles out. More to come.
