We try to be fair in our biases here, but I admit in Today's "Morning Shift" I went to town on the news that the F-150 Harley Davidson edition is dead. Someone corrected my bias and it made me think that there are probably very good reasons to drive a car that makes you look like an asshole.
Yeah, the Harley Davidson has an entirely deserved reputation for being the car choice of men with an abundance of cash but a dirth of taste and boners. That being said, ELippert makes the case for the truck:
HD branding aside, I'm fairly certain that the HD F150 is the only trim you could get a 2wd F150 with the 6.2L and 4:10 rear-end in it. You can order the 6.2 in the Lariat or Platinum packages, but it has to be paired with 4x4 and 3:73 gears if I recall correctly. This pretty much made the 2wd HD edition the fastest production pickup (besides the Lighting) you could (still) buy.
This was confirmed in a MotorTrend test that showed a 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds. Not too shabby and something I totally missed.
If this is the reason why you bought an HD, you are forgiven.
What other cars are unfairly maligned?
