2015 Ford F-150 vs. 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide

By -


Dearborn aluminum or Milwaukee steel? If you were going to make one new vehicle purchase this year, what would you choose? A 2015 Ford F-150 or a 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide? They are both incredible, American-made machines, but for me the answer is simple. Read why.


The cheapest 2015 Ford F-150 starts at $26,330 and a SuperCrew Cab cost $32,545 and up. A 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide starts at $20,899. Winner: Harley.


The F-150 is available in Guard Green metallic paint and the Road Glide is available in Amber Whiskey metallic paint. Winner: Tie.


The 2.7L EcoBoost V6 gets 17 mpg city/highway and the Road Glide’s 103 cubic inches (1690 cc) air-cooled V-Twin engine gets 42 mpg city/highway. Winner: Harley.


The Ford has a large bed and can tow up to 7,600 lbs. The Harley can haul you, your old lady and whatever you can squeeze into the hard saddlebags. Winner: Ford.


The Ford F-150 can go 0-60 mph in 7 seconds and the Harley can go 0-60 mph in 5.27 seconds. Winner: Harley.


The 2015 Ford F-150 still has a MyFord Touch infotainment system and the Road Glide has an all-new Project RUSHMORE system with voice activation, phone, GPS and a 6.5 inch touchscreen display. Winner: Harley.


Overall Winner: The 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide. The 2015 Ford F-150 is an awesome truck and the 2016 version should be even better, but if I was to buy a new vehicle this year, I would definitely go with Milwaukee steel – for now.
