Random thoughts:

All that chrome makes my head hurt. Not a fan.

Two bar front grille fail on the XLT - all those smaller divisions in the grille make it too busy looking. Not a fan.

The Lariat model with the three bar is slightly better, but again, the chrome makes my head hurt. Not a fan.

Those small grille openings should make investing in a power washer to clear off the bug life a good idea.

The HID's on the Lariat are almost identical to the ones on my wires Edge. Meh.

Come to think of it, the grille bears some resemblance to the Edge too.

Big ass, double post mirrors with chrome caps and reflectors on the Lariat...look like elephant ears. Not a fan.

The Lariat was never my favourite trim level, I prefer the FX4....little less flashy, and no faux woodgrain on the interior.

Good find Travis.

I def saw the resemblance of the headlights to the rest of the fleet. Personally id like to get my hands on a set to see what they are running and probably upgrade the projector also contemplating how I would do LED DRL in it. Wondering if they change the paint scheme of it to the different models. Cant wait to see some prices on them.

Same goes for the 3 bar grille. If there is a fx4 design in progress i'm curious to what the paint scheme will be. I don't mind the design just too much chrome

Edit.
I do not like the dumbo jumbo elephant ears for mirrors it has. Looks like they are from a SD.

For the grill, I like the concept of trying to mimick the menacing SuperDuty grill, but I think they missed the mark here. I agree with SVT4MT that the finer lines make it look whimpy. The three bar Lariat grill is the better looking of the two from the pics, but I would have to see it in real to make the final decision. And it would be nice to see if there's a new FX4 design. I don't mind the look of the projectors...and don't mind the look of the bigger towing mirrors.

I would say yes to that.
I believe they are the towing mirror option.

not a fan of the blue trucks grill but the other isnt to bad dont mind the headlights either but why didn they do the fogs aswell ? They also need to do something with the outdated tailights... Its still a better looking truck 10fold then the chebby/gmc's, dodges are nice to look at but would scare anyone off with there fuel milage and mech issues.... The duel exhaust molded into the bumper is a sweet option though.
