Harley-Davidson fans will no longer be able to display their passion for bikes on an F-150 pickup. Deal with it.
Automakers just love to release so-called special editions for their best-selling models. It’s an easy way to make extra cash and plenty of people are more than willing to pay up. Every now and then, however, a special trim comes along that’s actually cool. And yes, it may even be worth paying a bit extra for. One such example is the Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition. First launched in 1999, the Harley-Davidson pickup was a joint branding effort by Ford and the famous motorcycle company.
It sold decently well and no explanation was given as to why it’s been dropped from the lineup. The most obvious explanation is that it simply didn’t sell well enough. With the addition of the King Ranch and Platinum editions and even the off-road god Raptor, the idea of having a Harley-Davidson F-150 was just no longer necessary, perhaps even cheesy. Whatever the case, Ford doubts many will miss it and so do we.
