New Ford Heavy Truck?

I’m sure Marco won’t mind me borrowing this, an unknown photographer but a good one! The supposed new Ford heavy truck range will be launched at the IAA Show in Hanover this coming September. I’m not to sure what it looks like but I bet Scania wish their designers had come up with the roof design! Looks good not sure on the headlights.

Please discuss.
