First Look: 2011 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150

4-Wheeler invades annual bike week in Sturgis.

by on Aug.10, 2010

For 2011 Ford gives the Harley-Davidson F-150 a new 6.2-liter V8.

It’s normally supposed to be all about the bikes, this week, in Sturgis, South Dakota.  But there’s a spotlight shining on a big four-wheeler at this week’s event.

Sturgis Bike Week is the biggest and most eagerly-anticipated motorcycle event of the year, drawing countless thousands on everything from little off-roaders to the biggest, baddest choppers ever assembled.  But they’re getting some competition from Ford, which is unveiling the most powerful version ever of its Harley-Davidson-branded F-150 pickup.

The 2011 Harley-Davidson F-150 features a 6.2-liter V-8 churning out 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque.  If that sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same powertrain spinning the oversized tires on Ford’s over-the-top 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor.

“The engine has tons of torque and already has been proven in the field,” says the V8 engine’s program manager, Mike Harrison.

There’s enough torque, in fact, to pull a 9,300-pound trailer, according to Ford, a big bump up from what the pickup could tow with the old 310-hp 5.4-liter V8.
