Ford releases Harley-Davidson F-150 Special Edition

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

When we think of Harley-Davidson, we think of hardcore awesomeness. Same thing happened when American car manufacturer, Ford Motor Company, debuted the much-awaited 2012 Harley-Davidson F-150 special edition model.

This smashing Harley-Davidson F-150 special edition is available either in White Platinum Tri-Coat or the handsome Tuxedo Black body finish. This model also comes with a redesigned six-bar grille, 22-inch aluminum wheels, tinted headlights, and exterior graphics.

The interiors also make its mark with the inclusion of heated leather seats, the Harley-Davidson badge located on the central console, and the highly glossy trim finishes. This bad-ass model also comes with a power moon roof, scuff plates made of brushed aluminum, and an advanced GPS navigation system. There’s also a remote start system and a 4.2-inch productivity screen. The Harley-Davidson F-150 special edition also comes with ambient lighting features, adjustable performance pedals, rear-view camera, and a 110v-power inverter.

Under the hood of the Harley-Davidson F-150 special edition is a 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine with 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque power attached to a 6-speed manual gearbox with an optional 4-wheel drive mechanism. While we’re still waiting for the figures of the official performance specs, all we have at hand as of late is that this model has a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds.

The new Harley-Davidson F-150 special edition is an addition to the F-series trucks of the Ford-Harley-Davidson product line. Now that’s another hardcore Ford-Harley-Davidson model to look forward to.
