IMPORTING F-TRUCKS since 2002, Harrison F-Trucks has announced it will launch the 2015 F-Series F250 and F350 Superduty Black Ops edition in Australia later this year with the order books now open, although pricing hasn’t yet been announced.
The F-Series F250 and F350 Superduty Black Ops has been developed in the US by American vehicle transformation specialists ‘Tuscany’, and gets a raft of modifications. The F-Series Black Ops sits on 20-inch stealth black alloy wheels with BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A LT325/60R20 tyres or, with cost-optional KM2 Mud Terrain tyres also available. On the snout is a black powder-coated bull bar with a pair of KC off-road Daylighter spot lights. The F-Series Black Ops also gets a new grille.
To get in and out of the thing, electronic side steps have been fitted, there are flared wheel arches, a four-inch lift via Pro-Comp suspension. At the back is a lockable tonneau cover and there’s a Quiet Tone Performance Exhaust in stainless steel with black powder-coated exhaust tips.
Under the bonnet is Ford’s second-generation 6.7-litre Power Stroke V8 turbo-diesel which makes 328kW (up from 298 kW), and a staggering 1166Nm of torque (up from 1084Nm). All of that oomph is sent to all four wheels via a six speed TorqShift gearbox and it can tow up to a massive 8600kg.
The F250 and F350 Superduty Black Ops will be available from the middle of this year, with pricing and full specification set to be announced closer to the launch.
