Fat-Boy Inspired Harley-Davidson Ford F-250 To Be Built
Specialty truck provider, Tuscany Motor Co. is teaming up with Harley-Davidson and Ford to produce 250 special edition F-250 Harley-Davidson pickup trucks. It is the latest in a growing lineup of Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle-inspired trucks manufactured through Tuscany Motor Co. based on Ford and GMC truck models.
This special-edition pickup will feature 65 Harley-specific components all around (and inside) the truck. The styling is inspired by the famous Harley-Davidson Fat Boy model.
What Makes The 2020 Harley-Davidson Ford F-250 Special?
Some of the design highlights that will make this truck so collectible include a special grille and front bumper, induction style hood, fender vent, tonneau cover, Fat Boy wheels, special exhaust tips as well as numerous Harley-Davidson badging elements inside. There will also be a limited-
A number plate where every Harley-Davidson truck produced is assigned a limited-edition number that is placed onto the center console in a stylish design.
As for the grille, the distinctive orange accent trim signifies it’s a special truck. The Harley-Davidson is inscribed in the front bumper area, just below the blue Ford oval.
The induction style hood gives the truck an aggressive vibe that looks like a Raptor. A textured honeycomb vent insert and elevated ram air hood showcases this trucks dominating demeanor.
My favorite feature of this truck is the tonneau cover which has a huge Harley badge on it and the cover itself is color matched to the truck. The 22-inch wheels were inspired by the famous Harley-Davidson Fat Boy and CVO motorcycle models. The wheels match the rest of the exterior with an aggressive, dominating posture. The 37-inch BF Goodrich KM3 tires are ready for any road condition.
Harley-Davidson Ford F-250 Edition-Specific Components
Additional edition-specific components that add to the aggressive look of the truck include, custom tuned BDS suspension lift with upgraded Fox shocks, lighted power-deploying running boards with unique integrated rocker trim, rear bumper redesign, Harley Davidson tailgate appliqué, carpeted bed mat with Harley Davidson logo, Harley-Davidson floor mats, Harley-Davidson door entry sills, custom accent color door, dash and steering wheel trim.
“The Harley-Davidson Ford F-250 edition fulfills customer requests for additional towing capacity and celebrates their passion for Harley-Davidson motorcycles,” said Jeff Burttschell, Vice President, Tuscany Motor Co. “Working closely with Brad Richards, Vice President of Styling and Design at Harley Davidson, we created another fantastic truck worthy of the Harley-Davidson name and coincides with the debut of the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy 30th Anniversary motorcycle.”
2020 Harley-Davidson Ford F-250 with orange trim
Under the arrangement, Tuscany will provide the Ford F-250 and manufacture the interior and exterior components under Harley-Davidson’s direction. The 2020 Harley-Davidson F-250 will be available for purchase to the retail public at select authorized Ford dealers beginning April 2020.
My colleague Marc Stern wrote about a special F-150 XLT trim here. Pickup trucks are so customizable and the sky is the limit when it comes to options. For example, there's this 725-horsepower F-150 available.
Surely, this Harley-Davidson F-250 will be highly sought by Ford truck enthusiasts and Harley fans too. See you in my next story where I am discussing the 2021 Ford Bronco release date and its engine type.
