Economy and shifting consumer tastes be damned.
Although Ford revealed the all-new 2010 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 at the Chicago Auto Show (the 14th F-Series pickup to wear the HD livery), it looks like the automaker has another rig ready to make the Sturgis run. Brenda Priddy's spy photographers caught what appears to be the 2010 Ford Harley-Davidson F-250 Super Duty.
The 3/4-ton Harley-Davidson F-250 exterior is a bit more subtle than the half-ton F-150’s, letting its 362 hp/457 lb.-ft. V10 do the talking. Blue flames run the length of its tuxedo black paint job from the chromed plastic engine vents just behind the front wheels. The tailgate wears a Harley-Davidson badge and is spelled out in blue lettering on the sides of the cargo box.
Inside, the Harley look and feel continues with black leather seats, door panels and a center console, with strategically placed HD tags, plaques and jewelry. Priddy says to expect the new truck to debut before the August gathering of Harley-Davidson owners in Sturgis, South Dakota.
