I will stick with cummins when it comes to diesel. Has more torque and is way more reliable.

The new f250 have the same fender vents, stacked headlights, and has super duty written across the top of the grille, its not a emblem its like molded into the grille. Best way to describe it is, its like how the mustangs have mustang written on there back bumper. All I can say is you cant miss it.

To be honest with ya'll, I think Ford screwed the headlights over good. That's the only thing I can't stand on this truck. This is what they should have done instead of the blinker on top.

I personally think the vent in the side looks goofy. Leave air extractors and vents to sports cars. Secondly, how many times does a truck have to say "Super Duty"? Next up, I'd take a 7.3 PowerStroke over a Cummins anyday. Lastly, I think they look terrible in person as well as in pictures.

The side vents are there because they are functional, nuff said. I was told by a buddy at ford that they put the headlights on the bottom becasue the truck is so GD big, that it is easier to see with them lower like that, and less likly they will blind someone.....

I think it looks kick A$$, I want a F450 so bad...... If only I had a need for it.

Functional or not they still look terrible. Secondly, you can't honestly tell me there isn't a more asthetic way of getting rid of heat. With a grill that size you could probably cool a nuclear reactor. I think Ford tells us they're functional but, really they're just trying to keep with the style of the times (terrible as it may be) There is no reason a Range Rover or an Escalade needs those gaudy vents other than more bling.

That truck is too big . If your driving f-350 and not towing A huge trailer or using it for work you are probably trying to make up for a small ****. I drive a little Ranger but i have a huge ****. hahahah

seriously where is that thing going to go ? fullsize trucks have to turn around long before a ranger on the trail and they are horrible to park in the city.
