2009 Ford F-150 Spy Shots!



One of our contacts stumbled upon an essentially undisguised prototype of Ford's redesigned F-150. As the sunlight was just about to slip behind the mountains, they managed one revealing shot as the truck rushed back to the safety of its enclosed trailer, parked up the street at a gas station.  


Considering that every F-Series prototype seen to date has been covered from stem to stern in heavy black camouflage,  it appears that we caught this unclad look at Ford's new truck at the tail end of a photo shoot. The prototype truck was loaded and covered before our impromptu spies could swoop in for more shots.

This cleanest-ever look at the new F-Series reveals Ford's surprisingly cautious approach on its new truck. Although significant engineering changes likely lie under the surface, it now seems clear that the visual changes represent little more than a thorough facelift.  


The headlights, hood, grille, and front bumper have been changed, and it appears that this truck has a version of Ford's Edge-inspired grille. New taillights are also clearly in the cards. The front and rear fenders also show a very subtle change — a sharp-edged character line sculpted in above the F-Series' flared wheel arches adds some minor detailing to the side panels. New side mirrors, and a revised side trim strip round out the visual changes.

Expect a clear look at the new F-150 at January’s Detroit auto show.
