The 2010 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 is the latest in Ford's line of co-branded trucks combining the popularity of the F-150 and the style of Harley-Davidson. But what kind of substance lies beneath the style?
If nothing else, the 2010 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 certainly captures the Harley attitude; It's dark, it's brooding, and it wears its chrome proudly. Like the motorcycles it channels and despite all the festooning of the Harley badges, it doesn't offer any more oomph in the go-fast department than the regular version. It gets the same 320 HP 5.4-liter you'll find in the engine bay of the regular 2009 Ford F-150 mated to a six speed automatic powering the rear wheels or an optional Harley-unique driveline, which can be operated in 4x2 mode, AWD or 4x4 high. The suspension, on the other hand, is completely retuned for a sportier ride with more aggressive springs and shocks as well as a thicker anti-roll bar. The truck takes advantage of the sportier tune with some custom 22 inch wheels shod in 275 series, low profile, high performance Pirelli Scorpion Zeros.
