It’s not often that you see a beauty such as this in Malaysia. Whether you hate pick-ups or not, there’s just something about it’s tough looks and tons of chrome everywhere that makes you wish like you had one. This Ford F150 Harley-Davidson Edition was spotted in Ford’s Jalan Tun Razak showroom.
More after the jump.
When I first saw the F150, my first impression was it isn’t really as big as I imagined it to be. It’s just a wider than the Ranger, but nothing really imposing. It’s supposed to be as big as the Hummer H2, but looks smaller because subconsciously the pick-up bed doesn’t add up to it’s size in our heads.
This particular model is a special Harley-Davidson edition. Apparently there are only two in Malaysia, one is this unit you are seeing here and the other is being driven by a member of the Malaysian royalty.
If I am not mistaken, the badging shows that this unit is the special Heritage Edition, a special edition of a special edition to commemorate 100 years of truck-building at Ford. If I am right, this particular unit makes 340 horsepower at 4,500rpm and 425Nm of torque at 3,250rpm through supercharging it’s 5.4 litre SOHC V8, but under the hood of the latest 2007 models is an updated 5.4 litre unit making 450 horsepower and 678Nm of torque going through the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic transmission, yup – this truck is a 4X2, not a 4X4.
For this kind of exclusivity, you have to pay RM450,000 for it, which would have been really apt if this was the 450hp latest version – RM1,000 for 1 horsepower! That said, I really am not sure if this is a Heritage Edition or the normal Harley-Davidson edition, but it looks like the 2003 F150 Harley Davidson Heritage Edition to me.
The interior is huge, with leather everywhere. Harley Davidson badging are also all over the interior to remind you of the fact that you are not only just driving an F150, but a special edition.
A huge armrest in the middle makes this F150 a 4-seater. Rear legroom is huge, which I expect it to be considering the size of the cab on this truck.
Harley Davidson badge on the leather seats.
The Harley Davidson special edition emblem on the outside of the truck, with text clearly showing off the supercharged nature of it’s V8.
Something I have not seen before, a code entry system for the door locks.
Side-exiting dual tailpipe exhausts.
This is the best I could do to show scale of how big the F150 is compared to the Ranger and Everest next to it.
