Available all-wheel drive and 22-inch rims highlight the release of the seventh product of the Ford and Harley-Davidson partnership that began with a similar leather, chrome, and graphics appearance package in 1999.
The Harley F-150s are good-looking rides, and the first Harley-edition truck built off of the new F-150 platform is no exception with a special chrome grille, a chin spoiler, gallons of black paint, the dubs, and blacked-out head- and taillights and bumpers. We’re not so sure about the red and blue side-striping and Harley-Davidson graphics that don’t quite match the orange and black theme, but you definitely know what you’re looking at.
The Harley F-150’s aggressive stance is similar to the Explorer Sport Trac Concept, and the immense wheels and firmer suspension should make this truck actually drive a bit differently from a standard F-150. The only available engine will be the top-of-the-line (for the F-150) 5.4-liter V-8 in standard tune at 300 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. The AWD option is a first for the F-150, and a “4-lock” mode will be there to comfort truck traditionalists.
The interior should feel like Hog Heaven without the saddlebags, but we still wonder how many owners of these trucks actually possess a motorcycle license.
