For the past 5 years I have showcased the best in luxury cars and trucks at the Milwaukee Auto Show. The best part of each trip was to see the ever-changing displays at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Even when it is snowing sideways outside, Willie G Davidson and his son treat each guest like family. Both men have an eye for detail, so even the merchandise is subject to their approval before its for sale.
Such is the case when they partnered with Fox Factory to build the ultimate Ford F-150. Sturgis is only days away, so we have a deal you can’t deny. This new 2019 HD Lariat is loaded with every luxury option. Only 1000 examples were built, and this one is painted in the most desirable shade of “Leadfoot”. The 22″ HD wheels are inspired by the classic Fatboy, and they are wrapped in 35″ tires.
The BDS suspension includes a 4″ lift, and their proprietary shock valving offers comfort on the street and agility where the pavement ends.,HD orange accents can be found on almost every body part, and the anodized tailgate trim lets everyone know your favorite brand. Inside, premium HD leather is diamond stitched in orange, and the center console denotes the truck’s production number. Under the hood is the bulletproof 5-liter Coyote. It is backed by the same 10-speed auto developed for the Raptor, and it sends power to locking 3.73 differentials front and rear. A full stainless exhaust rumbles through black & orange HD tips.
For the family, it has a WiFi hotspot, Bang & Olufsen surround sound with Bluetooth, MP3 input, and SiriusXM radio. All the latest in safety includes curtain airbags front and rear, seatbelt pretensioners, and stability control. Officially Ford rates this build at 22 mpg on the highway, but it is the first year for the 5.0 to have Flex-Fuel capability. Burning E85 ethanol supports American farmers, keeps your engine free from soot, and its much cheaper than premium. Once the computer senses the moonshine, the ignition and cam timing are changed to unlock more torque and horsepower. No turbos or superchargers to deal with, just a V8 with more brains than any other truck.
