2003 Ford F150 Harley Davidson news, pictures, specifications, and information

Ford Motor Company and Harley-Davidson Motor Company today unveiled the 2003 Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew - a supercharged, limited-edition truck that marks the beginning of a second century of business and the continuation of a successful alliance between two American manufacturers.

'Getting two giants of American motoring together was a natural back in 1999 when we introduced the first Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 pickup,' says Steve Lyons, Ford Division president. 'The alliance has continued, and wîth both Ford Motor Company and Harley-Davidson turning 100 in 2003, we thought it only fitting that we produce another special vehicle.'

The Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew is being introduced as part of the 100th Anniversary Open Road Tour, a 10-city traveling festival that Harley-Davidson is hosting as part of its 100th birthday celebration. This weekend, the festival is in the Los Angeles area at the California Speedway, where the live music, motoring history and hard-driving atmosphere provides the ideal venue for introducing the newest Built Ford Tough truck.

Supercharged power
The 2003 Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew gets you where you're going wîth ease wîth its supercharged 5.4-liter SOHC TritonTM V-8 engine, producing 340 horsepower at 4,500 rpm and an impressive 425 foot-pounds of torque at 3,250 rpm. The engine meets low-emission vehicle standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com)

This special-edition truck utilizes the F-Series four-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) It has a 3.73:1 axle ratio and a limited-slip differential. Anti-lock brakes are standard.

All this and looks too
The looks of the 2003 Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew recall the truck's strong heritage by incorporating styling cues of the past wîth an innovative flair. It continues to be available in black, but for 2003 also offers an optional two-tone paint option of black over silver wîth a high cutline.

Body color bumpers, a new front valance wîth fog lamps along wîth a chrome bar upper grill and new chrome tie-down hooks, and clear-lens headlamps make the front end distinctive. Únique 20x9-inch five-spoke chromed aluminum wheels wîth the HARLEY-DAVIDSON Bar & Shield logo identification on the center caps add even more boldness to this truck.

Power and purpose are communicated through a stance that is lowered by an inch and a specially tuned exhaust system wîth a dual inlet-dual outlet muffler that ends in chrome 3-inch slash-cut exhaust tips.

A specially created '100th Anniversary' nameplate, is displayed on the fender and tailgate of the 2003 model to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the maker of the world's most popular trucks and the leading maker of heavyweight motorcycles.

Inside the cover
A leather-wrapped console lid wîth the '100th Anniversary' nameplate, two-tone leather quad captain?s chairs wîth the HARLEY-DAVIDSON Bar & Shield nameplate and brushed stainless steel and rubber pedals complement the exterior styling and stance inside the 2003 Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew.

Homelink and TravelNote, an electronic automatic temperature control system, a unique instrument cluster, newly standard six-disc in-dash CD changer and a new heated backlight are among the standard features. The Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew can be personalized wîth an optional power sliding rear window, engine block heater, heated front seats, bed extender and moonroof.

Headquartered in Dearborn, Mich., Ford Motor Company is the second-largest automaker in the world, wîth manufacturing and distribution in more than 200 markets. Ford brands include Aston Martin, Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury and Volvo, as well as the related Ford Credit, Hertz and Quality Care services.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the only major Ú.S.-based motorcycle manufacturer, produces heavyweight motorcycles and offers motorcycle parts, accessories, apparel and general merchandise. Buell produces sport and sport-touring motorcycles, and Harley-Davidson Financial Services serves Harley-Davidson dealers and customers.

Ford celebrates its centennial on June 16, 2003, and plans a number of special-edition vehicles, events and exhibits through 2003 to honor its storied history. The Harley-Davidson 100th Anniversary Open Road Tour is a 14-month celebration that will culminate wîth the Party on Aug. 31, 2003, in Milwaukee, Wis.

Vital statistics
Ford will produce up to 12,000 of the 2003 Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew limited-edition trucks for sale throughout North America; carrying a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $37,295 in the Únited States, including destination and delivery. The vehicle will be produced in Missouri at Ford's Kansas City Assembly Plant.

In addition to the 2003 Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 SuperCrew, the companies' alliance results in development of other products such as co-branded clothing and vehicle accessories.

'These two companies have been around 100 years because they've produced products that meet the needs and wants of the individual customer - products that people aspire to, not only for their looks, but for quality as well,' says Lyons.

'Forming alliances that strengthen the identity of each partner, such as ours wîth Harley-Davidson, is one of the ways we will continue to lead as we enter our second century of business.'

During the Open Road Tour event in Los Angeles, Ford will donate a 2003 Ford Harley-Davidson TM F-150 SuperCrew as part of a Harley-Davidson's goal to raise at least $5 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Association to support research and efforts to find cures for a number of diseases that attack and destroy muscles. The drawing takes place during the LA event.

'Ford and Harley-Davidson are two companies whose commitment to customers extends to the community as well,' Lyons says. 'We are proud to join Harley-Davidson and the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the effort to combat neuromuscular diseases.'

Overview
F-Series has been America's best-selling truck for 25 years.
For 2003, the Ford F-150 is quieter and more refined thanks to a 75-part noise, vibration and harshness upgrade. Two feature vehicles now offer new appeal for both entry-level buyers and those seeking an exclusive look.
Ford F-150 continues to deliver power and durability in the most comprehensive lineup of full-size pickups in the , meeting a wide variety of needs for work and personal use.
F-150 is manufactured in Kansas, City, Missouri; Norfolk, Virginia; and Oakville, Ontario, Canada.
Design
Cab configurations include Regular Cab and SuperCab, in both Styleside and Flareside versions, as well as the SuperCrew.
The F-150 SuperCrew, first sold as a 2001 model, is the newest result of Ford's truck innovation. It offers four full-size doors and a full rear seat for added comfort and cargo-carrying versatility. The King Ranch package is available on SuperCrew and SuperCab.
The supercharged Harley-Davidson F-150 SuperCrew offers 340 horsepower, leather-trimmed seating wîth the convenience of four doors and exclusive badging and paint.
F-150 Regular Cab and SuperCab buyers can choose short- and long-wheelbase models and 6.5- or 8-foot pickup box lengths. SuperCrew is available wîth a single wheelbase and 5.5-foot box. All models are available wîth 4x2 or 4x4 drive systems.
Three trim series are available on Regular Cab and SuperCab models XL, XLT and Lariat. The F-150 SuperCrew is offered on XLT and Lariat.
Interior
The F-150 SuperCrew offers many first- or best-in-class features, including standard power adjustable pedals, available power moonroof and a functional bed extender, which increases box length for carrying longer items. SuperCrew has an available rear-seat entertainment package option, wîth VHS player and video game outlets.
Available features include air conditioning, an overhead console, power windows wîth delayed accessory power and one-touch down driver's window, power locks, tilt §teering wheel, speed control and power moonroof. Electronic automatic temperature control is standard on the SuperCrew, Lariat and King Ranch.
Tie-down hooks are located in each corner of all F-150 cargo boxes to help secure cargo. A cargo light on the back of the cab makes loading and unloading the pickup box easier at night.
The rear step bumper provides easier access to the cargo area. The tailgate can be removed for special loading applications, and on XLT and Lariat, the tailgate can be locked.
Powertrains
F-150's standard Regular Cab and SuperCab 4.2-liter OHV V-6 engine produces 202 horsepower and 252 foot-pounds of torque. It features a split-port induction system that optimizes fuel efficiency and engine response.
The 4.6-liter SOHC Triton V-8, which is standard wîth F-150 SuperCrew and optional wîth Regular Cab and SuperCab models, delivers 231 horsepower and 293 foot-pounds of torque. The single overhead cam (SOHC) design features one camshaft in each cylinder head, providing excellent valve control for dependable power and responsive performance.
All models offer an optional 5.4-liter SOHC Triton V-8 engine that puts out 260 horsepower and 350 foot-pounds of torque. In January 2002, this engine was named one of Ward's Auto World magazine's 'Ten Best Engines' for the sixth year in a row. This engine features more torque than comparable engines from its full-size pickup truck competitors. Also, peak torque arrives at a lower rpm than the competition.
F-150's five-speed manual overdrive transmission, standard on Regular Cab and SuperCab models, has an overdrive fifth gear to reduce engine rpm at highway speeds, which contributes to fuel economy and quieter operation.
A 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, optional on Regular Cab and SuperCab models but standard on the F-150 SuperCrew, provides high output of low-end torque for excellent start-up performance.
F-150's towing and payload ratings can be enhanced wîth optional packages. The Class III Towing Group includes a seven-pin trailer wiring harness, frame-mounted hitch receiver, heavy-duty electrical/cooling package and heavy-duty shock absorbers.
The 7700 Payload (Group A) upgrades the GVWR to 7,700 pounds and provides a front Gross Axle Weight Rating on all 4x4 models of 4,150 pounds to accommodate a snowplow (7700 package and snowplow are not available on SuperCrew). A 4.10:1 axle ratio is available wîth the 7700 package (Group B), which allows for a 15,000-pound Gross Combined Weight Rating on the 4x2 model.
Ride and Handling
A four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS) is standard on all F-150 models. The short- and long-arm independent front suspension enhances ride and handling, while staggered rear shocks on SuperCrew help control movement of the rear axle on bumpy roads.
Safety and Security
Child safety seat tether anchors enable parents to more securely install front-facing child-safety seats. A driver and right front passenger air bag supplemental restraint system is included for front occupant protection. Side door intrusion beams help protect occupants in a side impact. LATCH child safety seat tethers are standard equipment.
BeltMinder system encourages safety belt use. It is particularly valuable in a pickup, which is often used for frequent short trips. Remote keyless entry offers added convenience and security at night by activating the interior lights. The SecuriLockT passive anti-theft system helps prevent vehicle theft. It is automatically armed when the ignition is turned off and will not allow the engine to start without the proper ignition key. Its specially coded chip communicates wîth the vehicle's ignition system and has 72 quadrillion possible codes.
