The F-truck has been the best-selling full- size pickup since seemingly just after the last Ice Age the last 23 years, actually , and Harleys are among the most popular motorcycles. This improves convenience for both drivers and passengers when they enter or exit the vehicle. The interior is also the perfect American truck interior. Peak torque is 290 lb. Naturally, there's plenty of chrome. Think of it as an Expedition with a very large trunk. The basic F150 is a handsome vehicle in any form, and the Harley-Davidson model's special trim just adds to its looks.
Is this now a tradition? America's Favorite truck has always been the F-150 always outselling the other American Competitors as well as the Japanese competitor the Toyota Tundra and Toyota T100. Much like last year's Harley-Davidson SuperCab, this year's SuperCrew version is, as was said about the Model T, available in any color you want. F-Series has been the best-selling truck for 23 consecutive years, and the best-selling vehicle of any kind, car or truck, for the past 18 years. A standard overhead console in the front of the cab includes a compass, outside air temperature gauge and storage areas. It's a raw-boned pickup that makes no more excuses for being a pickup than a custom Harley would make for not being a soul-less, sanitized-for-your-protection two-wheeled transportation appliance. In fact, it was introduced at the 1999 Sturgis Rally, and approximately 8000 examples were built. Power comes from 3 motors a base 4.
Driving Characteristics To accommodate its extra passenger-carrying role, F-150 SuperCrew has improved on the excellent ride qualities and interior quietness of its F-150 stablemates. It's starting to look that way. The new 2001 F-150 SuperCrew models will be built at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri and will be on sale at Ford Dealerships in February, 2000. Both Harleys and the F150 Harley-Davidson have plenty, and that's what enthusiasts want. The tether anchors provide parents with an improved method for more securely buckling in their child safety seats. All in all the F-150 is sure not to disappoint it will provide the truck for anybody's needs. The response from work and personal use customers was overwhelming.
Straps which attach to the tethers, available through child safety manufacturers, are used to supplement the traditional safety belts for securing the child safety seats. And, even without the Harley-Davidson trim, the SuperCrew is a great idea, combining truly useful interior space with a functional cargo box. . The rumble of a big V8 is just as archetypally American as that of a 45-degree V-twin, and the 5. The pinstriping pattern is slightly different, and gray joins the orange for another traditional Harley look. The combination of these features deliver F-150 SuperCrew driving dynamics that are rugged enough for cargo hauling, yet smooth and comfortable for passenger carrying. Convenient All Around The F-150 SuperCrew offers standard power adjustable pedals, a pickup truck first, designed to improve driver comfort.
Its looks reflect the same muscular, aerodynamic stance and styling of the current F-150 Regular Cab and SuperCab models. They are the automotive equivalent of the saddle on a Harley motorcycle. This provides greater comfort for a wider range of drivers, making F-150 SuperCrew even more appealing to a greater number of customers. The brake and accelerator pedals can be adjusted up to three inches rearward in a horizontal plane from their standard location. The first collaboration between Harley and Ford was the 2000 F150 Harley-Davidson SuperCab, a factory custom version of a two-wheel drive extended-cab F150 in black with orange pinstriping, with the 260-horsepower 5. It's big, bad, powerful, and loud, and one has been my transportation for the past week.
An optional Bed Extender allows more flexibility when transporting large items such as lumber, cinder blocks or firewood. When properly equipped, towing capability is up to 8,000-pounds trailer weight. The passenger cabin is a foot longer than that of the SuperCab, for real-human sized rear seat room. Lariat also includes a keyless entry keypad as standard equipment for further convenience. The five and a half-foot cargo box has a bed extender similar to that of the Explorer Sport Trac, lengthening it to seven feet, and a rubber mat embossed with a huge Harley-Davidson logo that should probably be kept in the owner's living room for security - it's too easily removable and, well, Harley memorabilia is popular.
The front seat controls are chromed, naturally. So what could be more natural than a Harley-Davidson edition of the F150? It extends the F-Series range by answering customer demand for more passenger space without compromising the pickup truck functionality, capability and versatility. Standard payload of 1,765 pounds is the same as F-150 SuperCab. Electric shift-on-the fly capability with a convenient rotary switch allows smooth engagement or disengagement of the transfer case on 4×4 models. Underneath, the 2001 F150 Harley-Davidson is an F150 SuperCrew, with the 260-hp 5. Leather is also found on the steering wheel.

Unlike the SuperCab, which has smaller hinged doors that swing out from the C-pillar, the SuperCrew has four full-size doors separated by a B-pillar on each side, with inside and outside handles on each door. It also is the only pickup on the market with power adjustable pedals. Boring vehicles need not apply. Customers said they truly appreciated the extra interior space, not only for people, but for clean, dry and secure storage for things such as tools and groceries. So it makes sense that this year's Harley-Davidson F150 would be based on the SuperCrew. Hey, chalk it up to character.
