transmission delivers 450 horsepower and 500 pounds-feet of torque.

DEARBORN, Mich., May 23, 2007 – America's best-selling, most capable
full-size pickup now delivers the horsepower to make it one of the
most powerful half-ton pickups on the market. The 450 horsepower
supercharged Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 Super Crew 4x2 hits the
road this summer.
Born from tremendous customer reaction to the F-150 performance
truck concept that was on display at the November 2006 SEMA show,
the supercharged F-150 packs the extra power punch that Ford truck
enthusiasts have been demanding.
"Ford is the truck leader because we pay attention to what our
customers want and move quickly to meet their needs," said Ben
Poore, Ford Truck group marketing manager. "They told us they wanted
a performance equipped truck so we worked with Saleen to bring the
supercharged Harley-Davidson™ F-150 to market in rapid fashion."
The supercharged Harley Davidson™ F-150 is available in Ebony Black
or Dark Amethyst with plenty of gleaming chrome, 22-inch oversized
wheels and tires, and a custom scalloped stripe that runs along the
beltline that creates a glued-to-the-ground appearance.
“Harley-Davidson” script runs along the bedside in three-dimensional
chrome letters. Blacked-out headlamps and a unique chrome billet
grille give it a distinctive, bold front-end.
Among other highlights:
* The SALEEN supercharger option is available through Ford dealers
for $6500 MSRP. Base F-150 Harley-Davidson™ pricing starts at
$37,210 MSRP including $925 destination and delivery.
* The twin-screw supercharger is the same style as the one in the
* A dual-stage water-to-air intercooler increases the supercharger’s
efficiency and adds performance by cooling the intake air.
* The volume from the exhaust is cranked up into a sustained growl.
* An available gauge pod with boost (PSI) and air-charge temperature
(ACT) gauges monitors the system’s performance.
The 2007 Harley-Davidson™ F-150 truck is the ninth model to emerge
from a Ford/Harley-Davidson™ partnership that began in 1999. The
co-branding of the two storied 104-year-old companies has proven to
be a successful formula with total sales of Ford F-Series
Harley-Davidsons™ of more than 60,000 units.
