For someone who wants a practical truck and luxury at the same time, 2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 is the perfect car.
Everyone thinks that this is a very good collaboration, and they did a very good job. At their first collaboration, 70,000 Ford Harley-Davidson F-Series were sold. With an amazing exterior and the interior leather designe, this new truck leaves everyone surprised.
The car has 22-inch machined-aluminium wheels and it can have a Tuxedo Black color or a White Platinum Tri-Coat one.
The main design feature of this car is the snakeskin leather, which is present also on the steering wheel and the seats.
As a technological characteristic, the driver of this car will benefit from a 4.2-inch LCD productivity screen that gives the driver a lot of useful information, such as fuel economy end towing performance. The new Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 also has a voice-activated Navigation System which controls things like climate and radio. The car also features rear-view camera, second-row heated seats, Remote Start System and more important, a 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine.
2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 Offers the Ultimate in Performance, Style with New Features, Class-Leading Power
The 2012 Ford Harley-DavidsonTM F-150 delivers on the custom cool design that the lineup has been known for, with new snakeskin leather interior accents, a new stylized bodyside graphic and a new wheel and premium paint color. Combine that with a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine and plenty of technology, and it delivers power, capability and style like no other.
"This is a great pairing of two icons of the open road: Ford and Harley-Davidson. Both brands appeal to truck owners and motorcycle enthusiasts alike," said Marc Lapine, Ford F-150 marketing manager. "For 2012 we worked with Harley-Davidson to continue to push the styling envelope while still delivering the durability and power that F-150 is known for and that our collective customers expect. It perfectly captures both brands."
The successful collaboration between Ford and Harley-Davidson has produced 10 F-150 models, as well as six Super Duty F-250 and F-350 models, and in 2009 the first Harley-Davidson F-450 edition truck. Ford has sold more than 70,000 Ford Harley-Davidson F-Series trucks since the brands teamed up in 1999.
Design in the details
The exterior of the 2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 offers a bold front fascia and six-bar billet-style bright chrome grille, and it boasts "Harley-Davidson" bright chrome badging. The truck also has a lowered appearance with a standard, fully integrated deployable running board.
Also standard are new 22-inch machined-aluminum wheels with painted accents and Harley-Davidson bar and shield logo on center cap. The paint selection is classic Harley-Davidson - Tuxedo Black and White Platinum Tri-Coat; this is the first year white has been offered.
New graphics on the bodyside of the truck are executed in a unique snakeskin texture, while "Harley-Davidson" dimensional lettering is featured on the box side. The snakeskin is inspired by tank inserts on premium-level Harley-Davidson motorcycles and also comes into play on the interior.
"This is the first time we've captured the full spectrum of light to dark on the exterior," said Mike Massara, F-150 program manager. "The graphic flows and accents the design curve of the truck, yet brings the texture of the snakeskin into the vehicle, which is something that's very difficult to do."
Interior trim panels are covered in high-gloss Tuxedo Black paint, while the console lid and upper steering wheel carry the snakeskin leather. The scuff plate features brushed aluminum with snakeskin texture. All interior chrome surfaces feature a satin finish. Premium snakeskin leather-trimmed seats come with accent color inserts and unique cloisonn? badge.
The 2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 interior is customized to appeal to the truck buyer who appreciates the attention to detail for which both Ford and Harley-Davidson are renowned.
Examples are the seats and the console lid featuring handmade cloisonne badges that are produced by the same company that makes badges for Harley-Davidson motorcycles; the console has limited-edition serialization plates, which include laser-engraved VIN and build numbers.
Nearly every member of the Harley-Davidson F-150 team at Ford is a Harley-Davidson owner.
The 2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 offers plenty of technology options to meet customer needs. Key to helping customers take advantage of all the capability offered by the Harley-Davidson F-150 is a standard 4.2-inch LCD (liquid crystal display) productivity screen.
This screen offers a range of menu options, giving the customer important information on everything from fuel economy to towing performance. The menu is navigated through a five-way button on the steering wheel; the screen is positioned between the tachometer and speedometer.
Additionally, the 2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 comes equipped with a standard voice-activated Navigation System that integrates several functions, including voice-recognition destination entry, climate control and SiriusXM Satellite Radio into one easy-to-use system, displaying them on an 8-inch touch screen.
For the customer who wants more control of transmission gear selection, SelectShift AutomaticTM transmission functionality is standard. A toggle switch located on the console shift lever engages the mode, where the transmission doesn't second-guess the driver, giving total control over gear selection and performance feel.
Other standard features on the 2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 include:
Ford tapped into a bit of its proud racing heritage to create the 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine, which uses big-bore architecture to produce impressive horsepower and torque. The gasoline engine delivers a best-in-class 411 horsepower and 434 lb.-ft. of torque and provides maximum trailer towing capability of 7,500 pounds.
