Tuscany Recreates the Harley-Davidson-Inspired F-150

F-150 flawlessly incorporates the Harley theme inside and out, but it is pricey.

Ford Motor Company regularly includes trucks from well-known customizer Tuscany at the Chicago Auto Show and in past years, the aftermarket upfitters have shown off their Tonka, FTX and Black Ops F-Series pickups in the Windy City. At the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, Tuscany has rolled out their newest F-150 upgrade package, teaming with Harley-Davidson to put the legendary motorcycle name back on a Ford pickup.

As an aftermarket package, this Harley-Davidson F-Series pickup is far more elaborate than past packages that were built at the Ford factory. The F-150 is modified inside, outside and underneath with this package, but that level of upgrades come with a price. In fact, this package comes with a big price, starting at $97,000.

The Tuscany Harley-Davidson F-150 was stationed in the Motor Company display at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show to draw attention to the F-Series lineup. Between the upgraded body parts, the orange-trimmed Harley-Davidson logos and the high-riding stance, this truck did a great job of pulling spectators into the collection of Ford trucks.

On the outside, the Harley-Davidson F-150 package starts up front with a unique painted grille and bumper cover, with unique honeycomb inserts in every frontal opening. There is also an LED light bar integrated into the front bumper cover, as well as a set of tow hooks. The front end also features a functional ram air hood with honeycomb vent grilles.

Along the sides, this F-150 has the Harley-Davidson text logo running along the front doors, along with fender vents containing the Harley shield logo. The side-view also reveals painted fender flares, power running boards with paint rock guards and the gorgeous custom wheels. The wheels are designed to replicate the rollers that come on a Harley-Davidson Fatboy, measuring 22 inches and coming wrapped in 35-inch all-terrain tires.

Finally, the rear end of this F-150 features painted custom bumper covers, a Harley-Davidson logo across the middle of the tailgate and a painted hard tonneau cover that protects a Harley-Davidson-branded bed rug.

This package can be ordered in three exterior colors – Agate Black, White Platinum and Leadfoot.

Orange-and-Black Interior

The highlight of the interior of the Tuscany Harley-Davidson F-150 is the custom quilted leather seats in black with bright orange contrast stitching.

These seats have the motorcycle manufacturer’s logo just below the headrest, and there are matching logos on the floor mats, the door sills, the door panels, the center armrest and the gauge cluster. The orange trim is also carried throughout the cabin, with a numbered badged in the middle of the center armrest cover.

The interior is finished off with Harley-Davidson stainless steel gauge faces, billet racing-style pedals and 50-state-legal window tint.

Improved Performance

As mentioned above, the Harley-Davidson F-150 from Tuscany comes with a slick of cool 22-inch wheels wrapped in off-road-ready rubber, but there are other performance enhancements included in this package.

A BDS suspension setup designed specifically for this truck works with a set of Fox performance shocks which are also unique to this package.

There is also a Flowmaster performance tuned exhaust system with billet aluminum exhaust tips. This system was designed to somewhat replicate the tone of a modern Harley-Davidson motorcycle, even though these pipes are hooked to a 5.0-liter V8 engine.

Finally, while there is no mention of a supercharger on the company website, the F-150 on display in Chicago was fitted with a Whipple supercharger, lifting the output to 700 horsepower. Since that is not listed on the website, we imagine that it was added separate of the Harley package.

This new Harley-Davidson F-150 is the best-looking motorcycle themed pickup we have seen in many moons. The heavily modified exterior with the plush interior makes this a truck that any Harley fan will be proud to drive in rough weather. Of course, those Harley fans will need to be fairly wealthy, as this package starts at $97,415 for the black or grey exterior while the white exterior package starts at $97,710.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life,” adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit,” says Rall, “I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
