New L in 2008 (styling hints) (New quasi-lightning truck from Ford)

This looks remarkable similar to the Gen 3 Lightning. Now if you mix this truck with the Gen 3 pictures, you get a good idea what it looks like.

Ford said that they weren't going to produce a lightning on this body and chassis, simply too heavy. However when they come out with the next style change (2009) they will also produce a lightning. (hopefully)

This gives some insight into what the 2009 will have. I'm sure they will use some of these styling cues

I really dont think Ford will build the current f-150 for only 5 model years since money is tight for them. I think we're looking at 2010 for a model change.

Fissan F-150 Titan? It looks like the bastard child of a gay relationship between Ford and Nissan engineers.

At least they left out the awful mustard yellow seats that the concept L had.

nice

i actually think it looks pretty good. I like the interior as well.

Shaved door handles are definetely a plus, and the extrior interior room. This could be a neat little family mobile.

Plus it's got a 4.6 in it which there are plenty of mods availible for. Imagine dropping a a cobra motor in it
