The following year, Ford provided a flame paint option with black and red or blue on blue. Interior improvements were also included but the real news came in 2006, when Ford offered Harley-Davidson editions on the F-150 and Super Duty trucks. The F-150 edition was the first model on the new body style.
When the original 2000 truck was revealed, 20-inch chrome wheels were considered huge but the 2006 truck moved things forward with 22-inch polished forged-aluminum wheels (20-inchers made it onto the Super Duty model). Chrome accents, a red stripe outlined in blue, and a unique front fascia added to the appeal on the outside. Once the driver stepped inside, piano-black trim as well as chrome interior trim and a serialized nickel plate with the vehicle's production date and number made it no ordinary F-150 on the inside. With a tuned exhaust system, the 5.4-liter V-8 produced 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. Rear- and all-wheel drive were available.
Not much changed for the 2007 model year, when a Dark Amethyst color was introduced along with the four-door Super Crew model. By 2008, though, the performance figures of the standard 5.4-liter V-8 were beginning to feel dated. To fix this, Ford finally added a higher-priced supercharged version, upping power to 450 horses and torque to 500 pound-feet. The 0-60-mph time of 7.0 seconds still fell behind the supercharged SuperCab model we clocked in 2003, but the 2008 model was a SuperCrew. A stripe in a Dusted Copper color - the color found on Harley-Davidson 105th Anniversary Edition bikes -- was optional.
