Pricing, Job #1, Set for Limited Edition 2000 Harley-Davidson F-150
Ford Motor Company has set the manufacturer's suggested retail
price (MSRP) for the limited edition 2000 Harley-Davidson F-150
pickup truck, the first vehicle jointly developed by the two
legendary companies, at $32,995.
"The Harley-Davidson F-150 is an exciting truck designed by
two icons of the American road, reflecting the `Authentic American
Muscle' tradition of both companies," said George Magro,
project manager of the Ford and Harley-Davidson Alliance.
"This is the first of more exciting products to come,"
Up to 7,500 of the trucks can be produced for North America at
Ford's Ontario Truck Plant in Canada. Job #1 (production start-up)
is scheduled for April 10, with showroom availability scheduled for
May. The 4x2 SuperCab is dressed in black monochromatic paint
accented with distinctive Harley-Davidson Ò orange pinstriping, chrome grille and
brightwork with a flareside box topped by a hard shell tonneau
cover. The 260 horsepower 5.4 liter Triton V-8 single overhead cam
engine powers massive 20x9-inch five-spoke chromed cast aluminum
wheels and P275/45R 20 Goodyear Eagle GTII tires _ the first ever
20-inch wheels on a Ford production vehicle.
Inside, the truck features the famous look of
Harley-Davidson Ò accessories,
including a dash ornament, black leather trimmed seats and a unique
"spun metal" instrument cluster. The exhaust is a
sport-tuned SVT Lightning muffler ending in dual chrome
3-1/2-inch "slash cut" exhaust tips. The suspension is lowered one
inch and rides on specially tuned SVT Lightning shocks.
The three available options include a six disc CD changer ($400),
a sliding rear window ($125) and an engine block heater ($90).
Ford and Harley-Davidson announced their alliance last year at
Daytona Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida. The two companies
unveiled the unique Harley-Davidson F-150 last August at the
Sturgis Rally & Races in South Dakota. The alliance provides
the opportunity for the two companies to jointly develop and market
exciting products, like the limited edition Harley-Davidson F-150
and a line of unique automotive accessories and apparel, available
only through Ford dealerships and www.icollection.com . The
alliance also will include celebrations of each company's centennial
