The grille doesn’t look terrible in the front 3/4 angle pic, but in the straight on front pic it looks horrid.

The Chevy looks tall and narrow. The ford looks normal.

Unpopular opinion. I hate the front end of the Super Duty too

I actually think the 2017 SuperDuty is the first time it's ever looked good.  I know I'm a minority opinion but I generally like the new GM truck designs, including the HD.

The 2020 SuperDuty is also getting an update, primarily with the new 7.3L V8 and transmissions.  The visual changes are very small despite the heavy Camo.

That's the very definition of "butterface."

I'm not a huge fan of the 2017+ Super Duty front end (even though I own one), but it looks google times better than the Silverado HD's.

Yikes, I hadn't seen a head-on view.  That looks bad.

Yuck.  There are some redeeming attributes in the 1500, but this.....eek.  It looks better in 3/4 view than straight on.

Those mirrors/mirror attachment look absolutely terrible.  It looks like some sort of ill-fitting aftermarket setup.

I do think the bed step is a nice idea, though, as with the bumper corner steps, they look ugly.

What's really interesting about the GM trucks is that Silverado, Sierra, and the HDs all have unique body work.  So essentially there are 3 (or 4 with the Sierra HD) truck designs in which the only thing they share is the roof stamping.  Ford once did this with the 1998 SuperDuty but returned to shared sheetmetal in 2017.

From the front it looks like a roided out bodybuilder that is ready to pop like a tick.

Bottom line is while we here at Blue Oval forums may not like it and think it is hideous...the Chevrolet faithful will snap it up with gusto...

I don't know - this one may have crossed the line.

 

Edit - nah, they'll just buy the Sierra HD instead.

The Super Duty has one big thing in ts favor, lots of people are already buying it.

As ugly as it is, I recon that GM truck buyers will still line up to by it..

I don't think either are particularly good looking.  I prefer a conservative/handsome styling direction on trucks vs. in your face.  Both of these faces are better with certain trim levels.

I guess the good thing about the F-Series is that the design is very utilitarian, it's very industrial and generally uncontroversial.  RAM and GM are taking a more progressive and trendy approaches to design, more surfacing and details which tend to polarize biased truck buyers already.  It's hard to be offended by Ford, it's largely a blank slate for personalization through different trim levels and fascias.  I could easily see Ford using the current truck body design for 12-15 years.

There are 3 brand new Ford Super Duties on one street in my neighborhood. One guy bought one and the rest followed.  They are everywhere down here.  These are 2018’s and the grills look different, better maybe.  They are mostly large boat pullers.

You have to wonder what the planned lifecycle is of the GM and Ram products... many of the more extreme design elements, especially in the case of the Chevrolet, are tooled-in and one would think that they will survive any planned MCE's. 

The slant towards conservatism in the hardpoints of Ford's design makes MCE's and other updates much more realistic.

Ford could probably use a better High-Trim variant.  I think this is where Ford is probably weaker, especially against GMC and Denali.  Timberline is debuting with the 2020 SuperDuty but it should be their signature high-trim model.

How is Ford's highest trim - Limited - any "weaker" than GMC/Denali?

There is Limited and Platinum, neither of which has the brand equity or exclusivity of Denali, partly because they are common words used elsewhere so it's hard to define a sub brand like you can with Denali. And having two certainly makes it more confusing.
