The shooters at KGP Photography caught some mules for what appears to be the next-generation Ford F-750 around Ford's Dearborn development sites. This beast takes the crew cab from the current F-750 and adds a new, makeshift grille that juts out over the existing hood line. Interestingly, the mules spotted testing so far have been equipped with the truck bed from the Super Duty Dually models, which may signify that the F-650/F-750 commercial trucks may be offered as mega pickups sometime in the next generation. The gap between the bed and the cab is massive, making room for some unknown components.
One of the mules was also outfitted with a massive outboard exhaust smokestack, mounted outside of the bed, just aft of the passenger-side running board platform.
According to sources, the all-new, next-generation Super Duty models are slated for the the ’16 calendar year, as ’17 models, so this could be the earliest test mules for the overhauled, Super Duty of the future. The mules are extensively modified, looking far more than mere powertrain upgrades of the current model.
