Ford officially unveils new F-series models…September 27, 2008
Thanks to Autoblog:
“Today Ford added two new co-branded models to its F-Series Super Duty line-up, the F-450 Harley-Davidson and FX-4 Cabela edition.
The 2009 HD model continues a long tradition of collaboration between the Blue Oval and builder of hogs, but is the first time this co-branding has been applied to the mightiest of F-Series pickups, the F-450. It comes with a blue-flame paint job that’s carried through into the interior on the gauges. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Harley-Davidson edition F-Series if there weren’t a plethora of commemorative badges on the truck to remind you.
For those looking for a truck that is perhaps a bit more mild, Ford offers the Cabela edition FX-4. Cabela is an outdoor retailer that appeals to hunting and fishing types, so this co-branding deal puts Ford right in front of their faces. The Cabela edition FX-4 gets a two-tone paint scheme that can be ordered up in a number of colors, cloth seats, dark Paldeo wood trim and lockable storage units to hide your hunting rifle, fishing rod or whatever.
Ford has also announced the availability of new options for the Super Duty line like a spray-in bedliner called “Tough Bed”, SYNC, voice-activated sat-nav system with SIRIUS Travel Link, and the “Ford Work Solutions package”.”
