What's the difference between "I' ll need you to..." and "I need you to..." What's the difference between "I' ll need you to..." and "I need you to..." "You 'll need to..." and "You need to..." I think "need to do" already implies you will do it in the future. Why we add "will" here? Thanks!

No, 'you need to' does not imply future. It implies now. And if it is your boss speaking, it MEANS now! Conversely - You'll need to implies that you can leave it for a while. We have a thing called a WOF - where you need to get your car checked regularly. At the station - the inspector could say: 'You need new tyres' - I will not certify your car until you replace them. 'You'll need new tyres' - The tread is getting thin. They are legal now, but I am warning you that you won't pass your next test.
