Ничего личного, просто бизнес: особую версию от известнейшего производителя мотоциклов впервые с 2000 года получил не Ford F-150.

Два десятка лет назад на свет появился пикап, созданный фирмой Ford при активном участии специалистов из Harley-Davidson. И в 2019-м отношения двух компаний завершились выпуском особой версии Ford F-150 актуального поколения: с нынешнего года лого знаменитой мотоциклетной компании носит пикап GMC Sierra.

В Harley-Davidson заявили, что модификация пикапа для поклонников "Харлеев" получила около 65 изменений и доработок. Harley-Davidson GMC Sierra построен по мотивам культового мотоцикла Fat Boy и отличается, к примеру, особым оформлением радиаторной решетки и оконечников выхлопной системы, светодиодной вставкой в переднем бампере, 22-дюймовыми колесными дисками с 35-дюймовой резиной, расширенными колесными арками и подножками с электроприводом и подсветкой.

Кроме того, пикап щедро украшен логотипами Harley-Davidson как снаружи, так и в салоне, а красить грузовики будут только в один из трех цветов - Onyx Black, Summit White или Satin Steel Metallic. Однако создатели особой версии не ограничились косметическими изменениями: Harley-Davidson GMC Sierra обзавелся, к примеру, подвеской на компонентах BDS с амортизаторами Fox, которая обеспечила ему увеличенный дорожный просвет.

Производством особых пикапов займется фирма Tuscany Motor Co. из Индианы, которая специализируется на сборке доработанных грузовиков уже не один десяток лет. Планируется, что на свет появятся только 250 таких Sierra по цене от 94 995 долларов.
