Ford announces 2011 HD-Edition F-150 with 6.2-liter V8

If you own or have ridden a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you know they may not be fast, but they’ve got loads of torque and a mean noise to them.  Well, so does the Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition pickup truck, and for 2011, it’s got even more grunt to it, thanks to a newly-developed 6.2-liter gasoline V8.  With 411/434 horsepower/foot-pounds of torque and an upgraded 9,300-lb tow rating, the new HD edition F-150 is more than capable of towing your two-wheeled toys.  More details and high-resolution pictures follow the jump.

Ford and Harley-Davidson have been working together to tweak the automaker’s truck offerings for several years now, and they typically include unique wheels, bodywork, grilles, more chrome than you can shake a stick at, and some interior adornments befitting the chaps crowd.

For 2011, it’s all been amped up, with new side-body graphics, bigger wheels, Harley-style badges on the interior that were crafted by the same company that makes Harley’s actual badges, and of course, the aforementioned 6.2-liter V8.

While pricing hasn’t been announced, expect it to be around the level of a loaded Platinum F-150, if not a bit higher, considering its standard moonroof, navigation, 4.2″ LCD display between the gauges on the instrument panel, remote start, backup camera, 2nd row heated seats, ambient lighting and SYNC.  The HD F-150 will be offered in traditional Harley colors; Tuxedo Black and Ingot Silver.  Oh, and if that 6.2-liter V8 sounds familiar, it’s because it debuted on the Ford Raptor off-road pickup which went on sale this year.
