There is an element of these new truck front ends that is due to regulation, that is they need to build them in such a way that you can run into a pedestrian at a certain speed without killing them.... But got DAM are they uglified.

I think they're a nice looking truck . I have a 2012 model FX4 CC shortbox with the Ecoboost. It pulls my 7,500 lb trailer and Jeep combo with ease and gets right around 12mpg doing so. I get around 21-23 mpg on the highway at 70 mph if I keep it around 65 it has hit 27mpg. It pulls everybit as well as my 2001 Superduty CC shortbox with the 7.3l diesel which is modded quite abit. If I was pulling something heavier the difference would lean to the Diesel but at 7,500 lbs the Ecoboost does great. I almost bought the Ram 1500 with the 5.7l hemi but I'm glad I didn't. My son works with 5 guys that have the Ram and they all get around 8-10mpg around town and swear they only get 15-17 on the highway. Here's my F150.

Nice looking truck hemi. I personally think the fords are thebest looking trucks out there with the Rams coming in second. The Chevy being the ugliest with the GMC being slightly better looking. Although the Chevy's with the fender flares and lifts do look pretty sweet.

Personally they all look ugly unless you do a little work after you get them. But the FX4 or limited trucks are best looking. 2015 should be a improvement from what I saw though.

I don't know about sexiest, but they are certainly a good looking truck.

The inset wheel flair body lines are a bit tacky. fender flairs are suppose to flair not indent.
