    If you look at the rest of those photos, as COOL as the tri-flex hydrogen system is, you will quickly realize that this cannot possibly be an economically viable vehicle for Ford to manufacture. Look at all the wood and stainless steel. It's more furniture / appliance than truck. It's an art-deco meets mission, Frank Lloyd-Wright meets Subzero "luxury truck".

    The shifter / hybrid system / trans-axle control reminds me of something out of Star Trek, or a least a nice yacht. ;)

    Cool? Heck yea. Practical? Heck no.

    Gimme a hydrogen fuel cell Denali (of any worthy variety) any day.

    im not practical. plus i hate the hydrigen, i want full bore diesel. but i was trying to get the design down and you hit the nale on the head. looks like my grand fathers sport fishermen (at least the cabin part) :thumbsup:

    if it does come out, and is a diesel ( or has the option not to get hydrogen) i garenteed it will be in my driveway ASAP.

    RT I just don't agree on this one, the interior sucks on that thing.

    I guess I'm not agreeing with the concensus here, I actually kinda like it. It needs some more tweaks but all and all it's on the right track. Hell, it's far better than the 1st gen Avalanche. Damn that thing was ugly. My reservation though is a truck moving to a unibody. I see issues with that. Oh well, I like it. :p

    Frank Lloyd-Wright meets Subzero "luxury truck".

    yeah, your right it has a very FLW vibe to it. sorry to bring back this old thread. It would be cool if it was at SEMA, but for a daily driver or work truck, naaaaaah.

    the GMC.. meh, to car-like for me I think. I think its cool, but just not for me so much.

    That Ford would suck in the Northeast, imagine getting into a car made of wood in the morning after a subzero night....not ideal if you ask me.
