With camouflaged ATV riders and roaring motorcycles, Ford's President of the Americas, Mark Fields, introduced two new special edition Super Duty models for 2009 at the State Fair of Texas — the Cabela's FX4 F-250/F-350 and Harley-Davidson F-450 pickups.

Cabela's FX4 Super Duty

The Cabela's FX4 Super Duty extends Ford's factory off-road package with exterior and interior upgrades influenced by the world's largest outdoor outfitter, Cabela's.

The exterior of the Cabela's FX4 features a two-tone paint scheme available in one of five colors — Ebony, Oxford White, Forest Green Metallic, Royal Red Metallic or Silver Metallic — contrasted with Sterling Grey Metallic lower accents along the rocker panels, running boards and wheel arch moldings. Special mud flaps and Cabela's badging round out the exterior updates.

Inside, the Cabela's Super Duty offers a choice of either cloth seats with the Cabela's logo or two-tone leather chairs. The center stack is surrounded by a dark Paldeo wood appliqué. The carpeting is protected by all-weather floormats, and additional lockable storage is provided in the front console and under the rear seats — to protect hunting and camping gear purchased at Cabela's, no doubt.

Harley-Davidson Edition F-450

Ford and Harley-Davidson have been building special-edition F-Series pickups for almost a decade. Since 1999, the partnership has created 11 models, and the 12th iteration is the biggest and baddest one yet. It's the Harley-Davidson F-450.

The Harley F-450's exterior features blue flames that run the length of the truck, plus unique blue and chromed plastic engine vents just behind the front wheels. The fenders and tailgate wear Harley-Davidson badges, and "Harley-Davidson" is spelled out on the sides of the cargo box in raised lettering.

Inside, the blue-flame effect carries over to the black leather seats, door panels and center console. Strategically placed Harley tags ensure owners always know they're driving "Big Hog Daddy."
