2008 FORD HARLEY-DAVIDSON™ F-SERIES SUPER DUTY: HEAVY METAL EDITION POWERS 105-YEAR JOURNEY• 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson ™ F-Series Super Duty arrives this fall, packaged wîth the raw attitude of Harley-Davidson® motorcycles.
• Super Duty model shares same design as the 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-150 for the first time.
• The truck is available wîth Ford's powerful 10-million-mile tested 6.4-liter Power Stroke ™ diesel that helps make the Super Duty the hands-down capability champ.
The successful alliance between American icons Ford Motor Company and Harley-Davidson Motor Company rolls on wîth the launch the 2008 105th Anniversary Edition Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-Series Super Duty.
Henry Ford started his production models the same year that William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson began to produce motorcycles – and since 1903, both companies have been rolling out superstars. Now, for the first time, the twosome is producing Harley-Davidson ™ editions of the F-150 and Super Duty pickups in the same model year – and wîth the same design features.
'This is a great opportunity for Ford and Harley-Davidson – two American icons – to celebrate 105 years of shared passion for the open road,' said Tom Aubrey, marketing manager, Ford F-Series Super Duty. 'Truck and motorcycle customers share the same values and dreams: they work hard, believe in genuine products and love experiencing the nation's highways and byways.'
The 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-Series Super Duty is the 11th model to emerge from a Ford Harley-Davidson alliance that began in 1999. The co-branding of these two storied companies has proven to be a successful formula, wîth sales totaling more than 60,000 units.
Metal, Chrome and LeatherThe 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-Series Super Duty draws its design theme from the special-edition 105 th Anniversary Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and its distinctive Vintage Copper paint. A special '105 th Anniversary Harley-Davidson F-Series Super Duty' badge adorns the exterior and interior of the truck. The unique paint options, graphic treatments and singular wheel design work together wîth Super Duty's strong, distinctive looks to give the vehicle a bold attitude that unmistakably connects the truck to the rich history and tradition of Harley-Davidson ® motorcycles.
'The design of the side vent and grille on the Super Duty represents the heat stakes on a cylinder head of a Harley-Davidson® V-Twin engine,' said Brad Richards, design manager, Ford Harley-Davidson ™ trucks. 'That was intentional as we wanted to thematically tie theses trucks directly to the bikes in ways that enthusiasts would appreciate.'
The 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-Series Super Duty offers a choice of black monochromatic exterior paint wîth a custom Vintage Copper stripe running along the beltline – or a black and Vintage Copper two-tone paint scheme.
The Vintage Copper color accents are carried through the interior as well, accenting specially designed leather seats. A unique instrument cluster and one-of-a-kind 105th Anniversary badge round out the interior.
'These trucks are pure customs – right from the factory,' said Pat Schiavone, design director, Ford trucks. 'I've been involved wîth Harley-Davidson™ trucks since day one, and this is my favorite.'
Other unique special equipment includes:
• '105th Anniversary Harley-Davidson F-Series Super Duty' fender vents and badges
