Ford unveils 2011 F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition truck

Ford America has just unveiled the latest Harley-Davidson edition of its F-150 full-size pickup truck. The big news for the new model of this famous special edition is that it will receive the same 6.2-litre V8 engine that’s used in the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor making it the most powerful F-150 Harley-Davidson to date.

The 6.2 litre mill replaces the soon-to-be-axed 5.4-litre V8, and raises output from 320 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque to a more impressive 411 hp and 434 lb-ft. The gasoline unit is hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission with a manual gearbox available as an option.

“This engine has tons of torque and already has been proven in the field with both the F-150 SVT Raptor and Super Duty,” said Mike Harrison, Ford’s V8 engine program manager. “The exhaust for the Ford Harley-Davidson edition has been specially tuned to feature a throaty V8 rumble customers will love.”

In addition to the substantially increased power, the F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition receives new side graphics and an upgraded instrument cluster. This new gauge pod has a full-color 4.2-inch LCD display located between the speedometer and tachometer that displays a variety of information including fuel economy and readouts from the inclinometer and roll angle sensors.

Filling the guards are 22-inch Euroflange forged wheels with a polished center wheel cap and low-profile performance tyres.

Inside, there’s black leather seats embossed with Harley Davdison ‘cloisonne’ badges. In addition, the trim panels are covered in piano black paint, while the door scuff plate and console lid receive special treatment as well.

Equipment upgrades include a voice-activated Navigation System with an 8-inch touch screen, a power sunroof, a rear view camera, second-row heated seats, special ambient lighting and a remote start system.

The new 2011 F-150 HD is scheduled to arrive in American showrooms later this year.
