Two iconic brands are teaming up again to create a unique product that appeals to customers of both brands with a new version of the popular Harley-Davidson F-150.
“Motorcycle enthusiasts can once again enjoy dramatic Harley-Davidson design cues in the number one selling vehicle in America, the Ford F-150,” said Brad Richards, vice president of design and styling for Harley-Davidson Motor Co.
“The strong reaction by the public to the concept truck at our anniversary event encouraged us to move the 2019 Harley-Davidson edition Ford F-150 into production. We look forward to fulling the dreams of fans who overwhelmingly asked for this special truck,” he added.
Approximately 70,000 trucks were sold under the highly successful program from 2000 to 2012. Harley-Davidson and Tuscany Motor Co., Ford’s specialty vehicle outfitter in the personal-use truck segment, have collaborated on the build of the all-new custom 2019 Ford F-150.

Under the arrangement, Tuscany will provide the F-150 and manufacture the interior and exterior components with Harley Davidson’s direction. The all-new 2019 Harley-Davidson F-150 is on sale now at select authorized Ford dealerships.
Neither Tuscany or Harley-Davidson are making any predictions about future sales for the new version of the truck but officials from both companies said they expect it to get a lot of attention from consumers.
The 2019 Harley-Davidson F-150 includes more than 70 proprietary parts that make the trucks stylish, comfortable and unmistakably Harley-Davidson. The styling of the trucks drew their inspiration from Harley’s “Fat Boy” and CVO models.

The list of unique parts found only on the new truck include Harley-Davidson brand Fat Boy-style 22-inch milled aluminum wheels and a custom-tuned exhaust with exclusive solid billet aluminum tips with orange accents as well as a suspension exclusively engineered for Harley-Davidson.
“Harley-Davidson is one of the most iconic brands in the world,” said Jeff Burttschell, Tuscany Motors vice president. “Working closely with (Harley-Davidson) we created a truck that will allow anyone to drive a world-class vehicle that honors the rich heritage of Harley-Davidson.”
“Built to be recognized from a distance, we believe it will be an instant classic,” he added.
