What Is the F-150 Harley Davidson?

What Is the F-150 Harley Davidson?

Last Updated October 8, 2019 | Sam Padgett

The Harley Davidson F-150 is a special edition F-150 made in collaboration with America’s most iconic motorcycle manufacturer: Harley Davidson. From 2000 to 2012, a yearly model of the Harley F-150 was produced. Its sudden re-emergence is in celebration of Harley Davidson’s 115 year anniversary. While the Harley Davidson Edition trucks are mostly functionally identical to the F-150, sparing minor performance upgrades, the main changes for these special edition trucks are purely aesthetic. Considering the overlap of truck and motorcycle ownership, this collaboration fits like a nice pair of leather gloves.

2019 Harley F-150 Specifications

Gray 2019 Ford F150 Harley Edition

The 2019 F-150 Harley, unlike its previous iterations, won’t be made by Ford proper, but rather by Tuscany Motor Co. This is good news for those following the custom F-150 scene, considering that they were the same company behind the F-150 Tonka. There are no significant functional changes to this special edition over standard F-150 vehicles. It will come with either a 5-liter V8 or a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and will have the option for either a 4x4 or a 4x2 driveline. It will also come with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

It will feature signature 22” milled aluminum Fatboy wheels outfitted with 35” all-terrain tires. The black leather interior, along with the exterior of the car, will be peppered with Harley Badges. One of the more conspicuous Harley Davidson elements on the Harley F-150 is the honeycomb mesh custom grille with an LED light bar. In terms of performance, this special edition F-150 will be outfitted with custom-tuned BDS suspension lift with upgraded FOX shocks. The Harley F-150 will come with a few other goodies as well, including a tonneau cover also stamped with the HD logo, custom leather seating, and a custom-tuned Flowmaster exhaust. Keeping in line with the Harley color scheme, the F-150 Harley will come in either black, white, or gray, with the signature burnt orange accents on the front grille.

To look for design inspiration, Tuscany Motor Co. stated that they were using Harley Davidson’s iconic Fat Boy motorcycle as inspiration. While the Fat Boy, and most other Harley cycles, are meant more for road cruising, the Harley F-150 sports some serious off-roading abilities.

It'll take a die-hard Harley fan to shell out the cash for this truck, though. With a base price of $84,995 and fully-loaded versions retailing for $98,433, this special edition might require a second mortgage on your house.

Past Harley F-150 Specs: The Supercharged F-150

The one downside of the new F-150 Harley is its lack of a supercharger. That’s right, previous iterations of the Harley F-150 did support a supercharger, touting 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque. Their design was a bit more subdued, making them an almost sleeper truck, ready to wiz by traffic and produce a rumble equivalent to the legendary rumble of a Harley motorcycle. Additionally, the previous models opted for a more overt Harley style, placing decals over the side of the vehicle. While they did change a bit over the years, they remained distinctly within the canon of Harley design, usually consisting of sleek slashes and lines or flames. Ultimately, if you have split allegiance between Ford and Harley Davidson, then this special edition truck is for you.

This special edition F-150 is a serious monster. If you want to get a taste of what it looks and sounds like in action, then check out this drag race between two supercharged 2012 F-150 Harleys (courtesy of Road Test TV).

All in all, this collaboration between Ford and Harley is quite exciting. Harley is beginning to branch out and redefine its image, especially with the introduction of its first electric motorcycle the LiveWire. Hopefully, this collaboration will continue to exist in the future. We can only imagine how different the 2020 Harley F-150 will look.
