Wanna see the ugliest Ford truck of all time?

check this out. talk about ugly. If I was in the market for a new E series van, Id be buying a chevy.... this is BAD.



i puked in my mouth when I saw this at a local dealer.






its a no wonder Ford is in financial trouble.... look at the crap designs they keep putting out... Id NEVER buy one. This design would make me the first one in our family to buy a non Ford work truck.

I don't think it's all that bad, It's just a van. Vans really don't do it for me regardless, so if I was looking for a van, it would be all about function over style anyways and would not be my only vehicle.

more than likely in a few years you will adapt to the new style and like it.

it looks good and a lot of people think that so i am sure they will stick with it.

i have seen several lifted and stock driving down the road, not in pictures and they look great imo

Theres a couple of the new superdutys around here that are lifted, but I haven't seen a lifted van. Lifted vans rock. I'd pimp the heck outta one.

i think the newest style like zack said is .... HAWT!!!!!... and definetly with a lift and some like 37 inch tires... that would be the sickest van ever.... and if you could get it with the twin turbo diesel... tht would be even better....

I drive an 05 chevy 2500 express van for work....and it's not all that bad... . But I think I'd rather have the Ford, seeing as how it just seems.....better built. But I'd want it to be 4x4. Do they even MAKE 4x4 vans anymore?!

I think it is the head lights throwing everybody off...they are kind of growing on me...from my understanding the are safer because they are lower and don't blind oncoming traffic?

I am not crazy about it, but it looks ok. I think they should have done a little more to the body to match the more boxy looking front end. maybe make the windows a little more square, i dunno...

that front end on the white truck:



no thanks.

Id probably buy a new Ford van if I was in the market, only cause ford really does stomp the competition, but Ud also be buying a new hood, new fenders, ner headlights grill, the works, and just do a front end swap.

And not all work trucks are 'used and abused'

that white truck is a 1995, has 95K miles on it, is fully customized, and in EXCELENT condition. the red truck is a 1977, and up until 3yrs ago (when we took it off the road for a blown tranny) it too was in excellent condition. both have been worked hard, but both are not beat to crap, and both have been taken very good care of.... and if you paid $50,000 for a 'work truck' youd take care of it too, and would want something that is good looking, unless ur a millionaire and dont give a hoot.
