After creating nine Harley-Davidson™ F-150 models, six Harley-Davidson Super Duty F-250 and F-350 models and a Harley-Davidson F-450 edition truck, you might think that the team would run out of new tricks. Far from it! The 2011 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 mixed it up with a new standard 6.2-liter V8 engine and plenty of technology upgrades in addition to new interior and exterior styling.
Some might argue that the big news is the new big engine. A 6.2-liter V8 engine is now standard, making it the most powerful and capable Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 ever offered. The engine, which debuted earlier this year on the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor, delivers 411 horsepower and 434 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2011 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 also offers an improved maximum trailer towing capacity of 9,300 pounds.
There is plenty of technology options to give customers what they are looking for. Key to helping customers take advantage of all the capability offered by the Harley-Davidson F-150 is a standard 4.2-inch LCD (liquid crystal display) productivity screen. This screen offers menu options, giving the customer important information related to fuel economy and towing performance. The menu is navigated through a five-way button on the steering wheel and is positioned between the tachometer and speedometer.
The exterior of the 2011 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 offers a bold front fascia and six-bar-shaped billet-style satin chrome grille and boasts Harley-Davidson satin chrome badging. The truck also has a lowered appearance because of a standard, fully integrated deployable running board.
Standard are 22-inch Euroflange forged wheels with a polished center wheel cap and low-profile performance tires. The paint selection is classic Harley-Davidson Tuxedo Black and Ingot Silver.
New graphics on the hood and body side of the truck are executed in an engine-turned finish and feature dimensional satin chrome Harley-Davidson lettering. The graphics are reminiscent of the speed scallops used on hot rods.
Interior trim panels are covered in Tuxedo Black paint, while the door scuff plate and console lid also carry the engine-turned finish. All interior chrome surfaces feature a new satin finish. Premium leather-trimmed seats come with accent color inserts and a unique cloisonné badge.
The 2011 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 interior is customized to appeal to the truck buyer who appreciates the attention to detail for which both Ford and Harley-Davidson are renowned.
