The new Ford F-150 is almost here. We’ve seen numerous spy shots showing the inside and outside, and we’ve learned a fair amount through leaked information. At the end of May, Ford officially announced the reveal date for the new truck as June 25. And now, the automaker offers a teaser glimpse of the truck’s new eyes, posted right on Ford’s main website for all to see.
That is, we sort-of see the truck's new eyes. The headlights and fog lights are trimmed with LED strips, and this intentionally blacked-out teaser highlights the LED treatment. It’s also a feature we’ve seen prominently in spy photos, and for that matter, we’ve pretty much seen the entire front end in spy shots.
Get The Details On The F-150:
Ford hasn’t been shy about parading prototypes on public roads with just a basic camo wrap concealing design elements. We’ve seen various grilles and the new headlight shape all but exposed, and though this is a completely new truck, the overall approach – at least with exterior design – seems conservative.

This teaser photo does give us something new to consider, however. This black-and-white head-on view shows a very chiseled, squared-off truck. Body lines on the raised section of the hood are pronounced here, and the LED strips follow rather closely to the outline of the fenders. F-Series fans who stare long enough at the image might even see shades of the seventh-generation truck and its squared headlights, produced through the mid-1980s.
Will The New F-150 Look Like This?
Once the light comes up, however, it will be a completely different story. Some have described the new F-150’s look as a cross between the new Ram 1500 and the previous-generation GMC Sierra. Inside, we’re expecting to find a very large touchscreen infotainment system amid a new interior that will be familiar to F-150 owners. Buttons and manual controls will still be prevalent for major functions, with digital instrument displays available on at least some models.
Similarly, the powertrain should include turbocharged six-cylinder and V8 engine options with available four-wheel drive and a solid axle turning the rear wheels. When you have the best-selling vehicle in America, you don’t necessarily want to rock the boat but the next-generation F-150 will be the first to offer a fully electric model.
June 25 will be upon us in no time. Ford will hold a livestream event for the big unveiling, and you’ll be able to see it live here at Motor1.com starting at 8:00 PM EDT.
