(from Ford Press
Release) Ford's king of the road joins another motoring
giant to give performance enthusiasts a new definition of custom
cool – the 2007 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 Super Crew. This
limited-edition vehicle draws inspiration from more than a century
of tradition at Ford and Harley-Davidson to give customers an F-150
with more attitude than any other truck on the road.
"This truck builds on the legacy of toughness that's been the
hallmark of the Ford brand," says Ford President Cisco Codina. "Now,
we're giving customers more of everything they love with the boldest
Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 ever – with all-wheel-drive capability,
22-inch polished forged-aluminum wheels and an interior that will
take your breath away."
The 2007 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 Super Crew is the ninth model
to emerge from the alliance that was first forged in 1999. The
successful collaboration between these two icons of the open road
has produced six F-150 models, as well as Super Duty F-250 and F-350
Hot-Rod Inspired Custom Looks
For 2007, the Ford
Harley-Davidson™ F-150 Super Crew visually communicates power,
dressed in all black, oozing chrome and sporting distinctive
Harley-Davidson visual cues. The Black Monotone exterior is accented
with a hot-rod inspired custom scalloped stripe running along the
beltline. The custom stripe adds to the overall performance feel of
the vehicle, creating a sense of motion and speed. "Harley-Davidson"
script is featured along the bed side in three dimensional chrome
letters. The new model also features a unique color option, Dark
Amethyst, with a complimentary stripe color.
The custom appearance begins with the bold front-end design,
featuring a unique chrome billet grille and blacked-out headlamps.
Based on a Super Crew configuration with a 5-1/2-foot Styleside box,
the new 2007 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 cuts a menacing profile.
Beefy 22-inch polished forged-aluminum rims – unique for F-150 –
sport a split five-spoke design, exposed lug nuts and the
distinctive Bar & Shield logo on the center cap. The massive wheels
give this ride undeniable attitude.
Between the wheel wells, chrome-accented ground effects help create
an integrated appearance and enhance the truck's powerful stance.
The ground effects and the unique lower front valence, or chin
spoiler, help create a lowered look. Heavyweight genuine zinc
die-cast badges on the fenders celebrate the Ford Harley-Davidson
alliance. Dark tinted smoked-out tail lamps and headlamps, a
blacked-out bumper and the "Harley-Davidson F-150" badge distinguish
the rear. Chrome tie-down hooks and a slash-cut chrome exhaust tip
add even more street-rod appeal.
Rugged and Refined
resonates throughout this new vehicle. Inside, the 2007 Ford
Harley-Davidson™ F-150 makes a strong statement of custom-inspired
refinement, with an underlying tone of authenticity and genuineness
that has been the hallmark for all Ford Harley-Davidson™ trucks.
"We've designed a cockpit that's a tribute to the open road," says
Ford F-Series Chief Designer Gordon Platto. "We've introduced
high-gloss Piano Black cues along the instrument panel, center stack
and console to bring in a feeling of visual motion. Combine that
with the rich leather and bright chrome that's been such an
essential part of all our Harley™ trucks, and you're surrounded with
styling that salutes motorcycle culture."
Rugged and supple black aniline leather seating surfaces create a
distinctive, inviting interior. The captain's chairs are unique,
sporting a die-cast HARLEY-DAVIDSON Bar & Shield logo embedded in
the leather. Elegant high-gloss Piano Black surfaces on the center
stack and door panels are flanked by a Bar & Shield logo-patterned
graphic treatment. The striking instrument panel – and the overall
vehicle interior – features a stunning display of chrome, including
unique chrome-ringed instruments, chrome handles, vent rings, floor
shifter and door pulls. Adding to the overall custom feel of the
interior is a serialized nickel plate showing the vehicle's
production date and number.
Built for Performance
Enthusiast events such
as South Dakota's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Daytona Bike Week in
Florida, along with everyday customer feedback, helped shape the
performance story for the new 2007 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150.
Customers said they wanted bigger wheels and all-wheel-drive
capability. Besides boasting 22-inch wheels, this truck includes a
performance sport handling suspension that's tuned to deliver a more
precise driving feel.
Customers now also have the choice between 4x2 and all-wheel drive,
with the capability to handle more challenging driving conditions
and road surfaces – ranging from dry pavement to winter weather. The
new AWD system continuously monitors the wheel speeds and throttle
position to determine the appropriate amount of power to send to the
front of the truck to help prevent slip. Customers also can choose
to override AWD by simply selecting the locked mode.
Lurking under the hood of the 2007 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 is a
5.4-liter, three-valve Triton® V-8 featuring a specially tuned
exhaust system that delivers a more powerful, throatier rumble. It
turns out 300 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 365 foot-pound of torque
at 3,750 rpm.
Ford will build the 2007
Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 Super Crew limited-edition trucks for
sale throughout North America beginning September 2006. The vehicle
will be produced in Michigan at Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant.
In addition to the 2007 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 Super Crew and
other vehicles in the Ford
Harley-Davidson™ truck lineup, the companies' alliance has produced
other products such as co-branded clothing and vehicle accessories.
