Ford has officially announced two new special edition Super Duty models for the 2009 model year: the Cabela's FX4 and Harley-Davidson F-450 pickups.

Cabela's FX4 Super Duty

The Cabela's FX4 Super Duty will extend Ford's factory offroad package with exterior and interior upgrades influenced by the world's largest outdoor outfitter, Cabela's.

The exterior of the Cabela's FX4 will feature 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 will round out the exterior updates.

Inside, the Cabela's Super Duty will sport either cloth seats with the Cabela's logo or two-tone leather chairs. The center stack will be surrounded by a dark Paldeo wood appliqué. The carpeting will be protected by all-weather floormats, and additional lockable storage will be 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 will feature 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 will wear Harley-Davidson badges, and "Harley-Davidson" will be spelled out on the sides of the cargo box.

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

Other Super Duty Changes for 2009

Other changes for the 2009 model year Super Duty lineup include a factory spray-in bedliner, called Tough Bed, and the availability of Ford Work Solutions telematics and productivity suite.
