Harley-Davidson F-150 Shows 6.2-liter V-8 Instead of Official 5.4-liter V-8

Harley-Davidson F-150 Shows 6.2-liter Boss V-8 Instead of Official 5.4-liter V-8

We were a bit disappointed last week when Ford revealed the new 2010 Harley-Davidson edition F-150 factory street truck. It wasn't the looks that let us down but rather its mild powertrain -- the same 320 horsepower / 390 pounds-feet of torque 5.4-liter V-8 that's available in the rest of the F-150 lineup. A truck like the Harley F-150 needs a special engine under its hood and we had expected to see the second application of Ford's 6.2-liter premium V-8 (formerly known as "Boss") sitting in the engine bay. The engine and its 400 hp and 400 pounds-feet of torque are already confirmed for the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor desert runner.

So, we were pleasantly surprised by the pictures that Drew Phillips and our friends at Autoblog took at the Chicago auto show, where the Harley F-150 made its debut. When they opened the hood staring back at them was the 6.2-liter V-8 with a helpful "6.2L BOSS" emblem stamped in the plastic cover over the engine's intake manifold.

What does this mean? Officially, Ford is still sticking with its earlier statements that the 5.4-liter V-8 is the only engine for the new Harley F-150.

"The only engine confirmed for the Harley-Davidson F-150 is the 5.4-liter V-8 it will launch with," a Ford spokesperson told us. They had no comment about the 6.2-liter V-8.

Fair enough, but we're going to call this particular show truck "Boss Hog" and keep our fingers crossed that the 6.2-liter V-8 is coming sooner rather than later.

6.2-liter Boss V-8

Comments

@Scott: Thanks for the heads up last week! It took a few days for us to get an official comment from Ford or it would have been up sooner.

Funny, Mike I posted the autoblog pic/6.2L info on the Harley forum thread two days before Scotts comments!

@Power Kid: Yikes! Sorry about that. Fixed.

Is Ford still coming out with 5.0 L. that is also rated at 400 HP? "The Coyote" Bring them on.....I.m signing up for one.

Also props to Dearnborn Derek who first alerted us to the pics on f150online. Then Powerkid put it in the forum here. There was no action, so I put it on the main page to get Mike's attention. Then Mike brought in the big guns and contacted Ford. Now we know the pics were not in error and the 6.2 might be available after the Harley launches (like the Raptor.)

@Scott: Thanks all around in that case. It *definitely* got attention. :-)

Great point Scott. I did read it elsewhere first, brought it to Mikes attn as I thought he would have contacts to find out whats going on...

Cool. It's pretty exciting that they showed the 6.2L. There is now hope for the other engines that we are also interested in. Hopefully in 2010 I can upgrade.

Did Ford want this to get out or were they caught with their pants down?

Ford likely wanted to get the news out but AutoBlog was the one caught with THEIR pants down. How could they miss these photos when they took them and had on their own site????

Send more info.

i sure hope they offer the 6.2L in the HD. if the don't i won't consider buying one.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I liked your blog . It gave me a lot of informetion. Please also visit my website for some more informetion related to it.

Url:- http://chargedoff.org
Website Description:-
Credit repair isn’t just about removing negative items. It’s also about building positive credit by adjusting your spending habits and developing a good record of responsible debt repayment.

In this article, I will share my true credit repair story with you. I’ll tell you how to accomplish both sides of the credit repair task ahead of you: delete negative items and build good credit.

My credit troubles began with a few maxed out credit cards. The interest got out of control, and eventually it got to the point where the card balance was so high I couldn’t even make the minimum payments each month. For a long time I’d been treading water financially, but now I was actually sinking.

Nice informative blog to read and this is amazing website for read and share blogs with different people in this world.
