For 2002, the Ford Explorer SUV received a complete redesign, the first since its introduction 11 years earlier. New were a third-row seating option and standard independent rear suspension. Also that year, the popular Harley-Davidson F-150 pickup truck got a horsepower boost courtesy of a supercharger for its 5.4-liter V-8, and for the first time was available in grey as well as black.
A redesigned Explorer was introduced as an early 2002 model.
The 2002 Ford Explorer featured a roomier interior, available third-row seating, and class-exclusive independent rear suspension.
Ford Ranger added an off-road-ready FX4 four-wheel-drive version for 2002 with heavy-duty springs, 31-inch tires, and heftier skid plates.
An even hotter F-150 Harley-Davidson SuperCrew arrived for 2002 and came in the traditional Harley black, but also in a new Dark Shadow Grey, pictured here. Other features included a bright "billet" grille, unique 20-inch chrome wheels, low-riding suspension, and a posh cab with leather upholstery and brushed-metal accents.
This third limited-edition Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 pickup truck also offered a potent supercharged version of Ford's 5.4-liter V-8 making a stout 340 horsepower.
Ford celebrated its centennial in 2003. Find out how on the next page.
