I was expecting more of a reveal. I was hoping to see pictures of the actual trucks in different trims besides Platinum.

I love the tech and interior changes I had a 2015 F150 for 5 years that I just go rid of in January.

Things I'm still wondering and would like to see:

- Just more overall info on new features beyond the onboard generator (which is very cool).
- Preproduction examples of each trim in real photos, not computer generations.
- Will there still be a plow package option for 5.0 owners?

Things I'm wondering why they didn't go further:

- Tailgate, I was expecting a bit more innovation. This looks very useful for contractors. But I like the split Ram tailgate and I like the GMC tailgate better.
- Why no AT4/offroad package from the factory with a 2" leveling kit. One of the photos (blue supercab with camping trailer) looks like it has a little bit of a lift.

In the end...this was a bad tease. I'm left with Blue Ford logo balls...

Let me add, is next spring I'm planning to order a new Lariat Crew with 5.0/plow package. Really hoping I can get the steering wheel heater with this trim. As it is, the heated seats cut out in my 2015 when the plow button was activated. Do the same with the steering wheel heater. I'm cool with those not running while plowing my driveway. It's just the maining 98% of winter miles I drive with out a plow that I'd like warm hands and warm derriere.

Did anyone else note in the pictures that all of those grill options that they spent so much time discussing during the reveal are really just a couple of grill options with either black or chrome coloring on the various inserts ? Probably actually fewer real grill options than in previous years. How deeply do you need to dig to fake excitement over plastic grill insert color combinations. Still disappointed in the entire reveal content.

I agree but that's just how it is done nowadays. The problem is many colors are very difficult to accurately portray with renderings. I'm hoping this site will capture more prototypes in different colors once the camouflage comes off.
