The SHO is back!!! Read all about it HERE at Autoblog…

Powered by the acclaimed EcoBoost V6 engine with increased outputs to 272kW / 475Nm (via twin turbo), all-wheel-drive, which is mated to Ford’s 6F55 six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The tranny is augmented by a manual mode that can be controlled either by the console shifter or paddle shifters, and will also rev match downshifts and hold gears even when the tach is bouncing off the engine’s redline.

The new Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition truck sits on new 22-inch forged aluminum wheels with polished and painted surfaces and a center cap adorned with the Harley logo. The crew cab has ample space inside for five passengers and the seating surfaces are covered in the same type of leather used for official Harley biker jackets.

The seat bolsters in front also feature the ribbed leather that you find on shoulders and elbows of those jackets. Inspired by Bentley’s bragging about how many cows it takes to line the interiors of its cars with leather, Ford’s Mark Fields joked, “It takes the jackets of 12 Harley Riders,” for one F-150.

The cover of the center console bin is also emblazoned with an enormous Harley-Davidson badge and the truck’s serial number and VIN. Likewise, the steering wheel is wrapped in a mix of the same red and black leather as the seats. The center stack, meanwhile, is covered in a matching red rubberized finish of the same type used on the 2010 Fusion Sport.

Under the hood, the standard 5.4L V8 shared with the less flashy F-150s puts out 320 hp (240kW) and 390 lb-ft (530Nm) of torque through the usual 6-speed automatic transmission. Ford hasn’t commented on pricing yet, but harvesting jackets off the backs of all those bikers surely doesn’t come cheap. Interested buyers will find out closer to this summer when the 2010 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition goes on sale.
