Ever since Ford and Harley-Davidson got together, the bar-and-shield logo has been affixed to the baddest possible version of the ever-popular F-Series pickup. By the looks of these spy shots, the next iteration of the Blue Oval's Harley-Davidson edition pickup will be the biggest yet. Based on the newest version of the venerable F-Series platform, the F-450, expect to see blue "tribal" flames adorning the slab-sided truck, just aft of the front wheels, to go along with the obligatory Harley-Davidson badges and lettering across the bed. As befits a Harley, there is plenty of shiny chrome to set off the mostly black paint. No powertrain changes are expected, which is fine, considering the fact that the 6.4-liter twin-turbo diesel engine already offers up plenty of stump-pulling torque. Owners will be further reminded that they sprung for the cycle-inspired model as they climb in the black leather seats, again emblazoned with the Harley-Davidson logo. Expect to pay upwards of sixty-grand for the privilege of parking one of these behemoth's in your driveway.

      I own an '08 super duty that avgs. 22 mpg @ highway speeds. 16 mpg around town. I bet it's about par with your, pass everything but a Walmart, Chevette.

      I have the abiltity to pull my 30ft 5th wheel while having cleaner emissions than most cars. 45K & the inside of my tailpipes are still spotless.

      It's the same reason why Mercedes cost what they do..you get what you pay for.

      a harley davidson weighs 22,000 pounds now? seems a bit much. certainly they must... why else would you need an F-450?

      10MPG... nice.

      Great looks, bad idea.... I'll est. 8 MPG Highway, and I'll also pass on the truck itself.....

      And why is almost every new Ford/Lincoln sighting on this same block-seemingly in the same driveway? I've seen a lot of unreleased Ford/Lincoln products on this same street on Jalopnik.

        I'd have to say it has to do with a company employee living in that area. Hence why you'd see a number of the same family of vehicles(Ford, Lincoln etc.).

        It just seems that the photographers have found out where said person lives and stakes it out for new stuff.

      Why would you build this? I bet this thing will be back on the used car lot with a 25,000 dollar price tag in no time.

      But will it be able to haul a Harley or two? Is a ramp included?

      The payload capacity of a properly equipped F-450 4x2 is 6120 lbs. If the average, properly equipped Harley weighs in at 700 (just a guess???), you could put 8.75 in the box if you could figure out how to get them in. Ramp not included. (tho' at 60-large is should be.)

      Dude, NICE! I was considering picking up an elise and an F-150, but what a beauty! I will gladly sell my Z06 or 911 for this gorgeous masterpeice in craftsmanship. Ford, will you ever fail to impress me? Surely, no?

      In all seriousness, cant we just get the mondeo or the new capri stateside instead of this trash? Is the Harley Truck line REALLY that profitable with us americans crying about 4 USD a gallon of regular?

        Adding blue flames, different seats and a couple badges to a work truck you already make - make a thousand of every day - really isn't much of an investment on Ford's part.

        And if people with more money than modesty want to pay $10,000 for those $1,500 in trim bits, Ford would be stupid not to take that money.

        Why don't posts about 80K eurotrash sedans draw this kind of venom?

        It's a diesel. At least $5.30 around here, last time I checked, and climbing fast. You can make the older ones run used veggie oil, but I think the 6.4 might be a little more picky.
        Cool if you need to haul stuff, but I predict that most of these will stay shiny. Hey, we've got plenty of oil left, right?
      • 7 Years Ago
      More like $60k a year to fill up the tank.
      • 7 Years Ago
      This will certainly pull Ford into profitability.

      It's poseriffic.

      SIXTY GRAND???

      Don't most commercial uses of this truck NOT want some other company's trademark on them?

      And what private citizen harley fan wants an F'in-450!??

      An F150, or maybe 250 SD, but a 60 grand 450?

      What was that previous news about the economy in a down-turn, and non-essential purchases being curtailed?
        • 7 Years Ago
        You'll see these parked dowtown with shiny unscratched beds and racing down the freeway with one person in it and nothing in the bed.

        These are an indulgence for contractors and mega sized truck fans.
