2009 Ford Harley Davidson and Cabela's Edition Super Duty
Now you really roll large like never before.
09-25-08: In the event you are not at all put off by a sluggish economy or high fuel prices, Ford has upped the ante by rolling out two new high-end F-Series Super Duty trucks for 2009. If $40,000 or $45,000 was not too much, now you can spend even more with the new Cabela's FX4 for the outdoor enthusiast and for the first time, a Harley-Davidson F-450 pickup.
They are pretty nice trucks that say to the world, “ I have a crap-load of money and don’t give a damn about those global warming nut-jobs”. Not a bad message really and honestly nobody does it better than Ford. It ain’t bragging if you can do it.
According to customer data, seventy-six percent of F-Series buyers hunt and fish. So a key way for Ford to connect with those outdoor enthusiasts is to offer up the Cabela's FX4 package. The ruggedly luxurious special edition features a unique two-tone paint scheme in five colors: Ebony, Oxford White, Forest Green Metallic, Royal Red Metallic and Silver Metallic with Sterling Grey Metallic lower body accents, running boards and wheel lip moldings. Custom mud flaps and unique Cabela's badging finish off the exterior.
The interior features standard cloth seats with the Cabela's logo or available Aniline leather seats with a unique two-tone embossed grain pattern. The center stack is finished with a dark Paldeo wood appliqué. All weather floor mats also wear the Cabela's logo. And for the avid outdoor enthusiast, additional lockable storage in the front console and underneath the rear seats is perfect for keeping equipment secure and out of sight.
If you are more into black leather and loud scooters, Ford and Harley-Davidson have teamed up again for a new Harley-Davidson F-450. Ford calls it the "Big Hog Daddy" of the road. Um, ok. As with the still available F-250/350 SRW models, each individually numbered Harley-Davidson F-450 features a unique blue-flame paint scheme that starts at the side vents and runs down to the box side of the truck. Hey at least it isn’t flaming and purple like the Harley-Davidson F-150’s if you know what we are saying.
The flame design scheme is carried through to the interior gauges in the instrument panel. The custom perforated black leather wrapped seats, door panels and center console cover reveal blue leather underneath giving the same blue-flame effect as the exterior. Harley-Davidson badges are present on the fenders and tailgate, along with "Harley-Davidson" script located on the box side.
The F-450 is of course for those that really need hauling capacity. With 10-lug wheels and big-rig persona there is little you cant tow. So if you have a 40’ enclosed car trailer for your bikes, cars, or horses now you can really roll in style. Cadillac might just be missing the boat by not offering a version of GM’s HD trucks in drag.
