I was astounded by the size and the height of this truck as I opened the driver's door, but then I was delighted by the huge, fold-down running board, even as I was disgusted by how over-the-top the whole thing is. At night, the interior of this truck looks like a bordello, what with its burgundy and black color scheme. It looks better in the daylight, and it's actually a very high-quality interior.
The F-150 has no problems accelerating quickly to 80 mph on the freeway. It feels extremely solid and hammers down the freeway quite nicely and rides better than I remember the F-series riding. The Harley edition is not my thing, but obviously it is the thing for some people, or Ford wouldn't make it. I found it strange that our test truck had a liner for the floor of the cargo bed but the sides were exposed paint, vulnerable to scratches.
