Usually, the skilled spy photographers who stalk the automotive industry’s camouflaged secrets catch these working prototypes during highway testing. But in the case of the 2017 Super Duty’s latest photo op, Ford was ready.

As seen in photos by SpiedBilde posted by and Auto Guide, the automaker prepared a special camouflage decal coating to the prototype pickup’s exterior to hide the nuances of the truck’s design, but also to announce when all will be revealed: during the State Fair of Texas next month.

As you can see in the photos above, the F-250 and F-350 are definitely in for a styling makeover for 2017. And though the truck’s new appearance seems to embrace straighter lines and blockier appearance, it’s unclear whether or not the new models will sport the longer nose of that leaked photo we saw back in March.

However, according to SpiedBilde, what you can expect out of the new models is a 10-speed automatic transmission paired with Ford’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel. Of course, like the sibling F-150, the new Super Duty models will feature an aluminum body and will adopt many of the F-150’s tech features like the 360-degree camera, pro trailer backup assist and more.
