Ford adds snakeskin to F-150 Harley Davidson Edition

It’s no secret that those who love Harley-Davidson motorbikes usually ride Harley-Davidson motorbikes. But even the most diehard fans still occasionally, need something with a roof and a little more space. That’s where the Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition enters the fray.

Since first joining forces back in 1999, Ford and Harley-Davidson has produced a total of ten F-150 models, six Super Duty F-250 and F-350 models, as well as one Harley-Davidson F-450 edition truck in 2009. Combined sales for all these special models is more than 70,000 units.

For the 2012 model year Ford has just revealed it’s latest F-150 Harley Davidson Edition which like its predecessors, gets styling tweaks and extra kit.

The F-150 H-D is available in two colours, the more traditional Tuxedo Black or a new White Platinum Tri-Coat finish combined with flame graphics on the sides finished in a snakeskin texture.

Filling the high wheel arches are 22-inch machined-aluminum rims wrapped in low profile tyres and featuring painted accents and unique center caps. There’s also smokedheadlamps and tail lights, as well as the six-bar billet-style bright chrome grille and plenty of “Harley-Davidson” badging.

In the cabin there’s more snakeskin, the distinctive material appears on the console lid, seats and part of the steering wheel. It may seem odd to some, but snakeskin works nicely for all occasions.

Standard equipment include a 4.2-inch LCD productivity screen, voice-activated navigation, power moonroof, rear view camera, second-row heated seats, ambient lighting, remote start system and power-adjustable pedals.

The 2012 F-150 H-D is powered by Ford’s massive 6.2-litre V8 engine that delivers 306kW and 587Nm of torque.
