The boxy truck features cliff-like sides and Ford's three-bar grille, which gives the front the look of a tractor-trailer.

This version of the truck is fitted with a 5.4-liter V-8, the top engine choice, which makes 320 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. A 4.6-liter V-8 is also available.

The high-sprung suspension makes the frame rails visible in the wheel well, which Ford says is 10 percent lighter than on the previous generation.
