Ford F-150 Dons Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Attire

Ford F-150 HD_1

To celebrate Harley-Davidson's 115th anniversary, Harley-Davidson and Tuscany Motor Co. (part of the Fox Factory family) have created a customized 2019 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson concept that is on display at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee through Sunday.

If this sounds familiar, it's because Ford previously offered a Harley-Davidson version of the F-150 SuperCrew in 2012. But this truck takes the customizations to the next level, drawing on design cues from Harley-Davidson's Fat Boy motorcycle. The truck's producers say that this display serves as both an homage and a production exercise — based on public response, they will tweak the design and hope to offer a version of the truck for sale (through existing Ford Tuscany dealers) in December.

The exterior and interior are adorned with Harley-Davidson logos and script all over, including the tailgate, the doors, the wheels, the instrument panel, the center console storage bin, the floormats, the doorsills. I might be missing some, but you get the gist. There's also a custom grille up front with orange accents and a locking tonneau cover with the bar and shield logo on it. It also appears that a few different exterior colors will be offered, so buyers will have some flexibility in that department.

The truck also has a few customized performance and mechanical parts under the skin to go along with the adornments. Twenty-two-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires sit at each corner beneath a custom-tuned BDS suspension and, of course, Fox shocks. To let people know you're coming, the F-150 Harley-Davidson boasts a Flowmaster exhaust with solid billet aluminum exhaust tips.

Inside, the seats are adorned two-tone diamond-stitched leather with (of course) a Harley-Davidson insert. Customized accent coloring livens up the doors, dashboard and steering wheel.

Head over to the truck's website for more details and photos. Pricing info is not yet available, but we did confirm that if the trucks are sold they will be sold finished — no need to buy a truck and have it transformed. We'll be sure to pass along more details as they become available, including if the Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson will be sold.

I see there adapting the hood scoop! I really like that! Wish GM woukd on half tons, like their HD trucks. Love that look. I just looked into it yesterday. You can swap a HD hood onto a half ton. You just have to get HD hood brackets and few other little things.

It better come with a 5.0L, 6.2L, or the new rumored 7.0L. Not an ecoboost please! U Cant make a Harley truck and fake the exhaust note!

Overall nice looking truck except for the wheels. Not fan of those

Yes, no Ego Boost engine please.

No ecoboost please, and no Ford engines at all please. None of them are long lasting engines by Ford.

But those fat tires are perfect, they will make all the fat and dumb Ford drivers look skinnier.

Dearborn execs, are you listening? Please, bring some proper V8 engine power to the game. No more pretending.

I like the way you think Gene.

I'll take that Fat Boy in the picture above.

Oh, and it ain't the Ford.

"Ego Boost" That would be funny if it could Boost the Ego.

Sadly, HD bike's will no longer be made in America.

Biker's at Sturgis this year were asked about the situation. The one's interviewed stated they would not be buying any new Harley's. HUH?
If they weren't just drunk bashing, look for the used market to take off.

A local non OEM customization...

Well at least it has some interesting pictures and on a slow news day why not.

Hemi and GovMotors will certainly say something stupid because that's what they do.

Then cue all the "looks great" or "looks like crap" comments which actually make some sense on this one since this is a specialized exercise in vanity for $$.

Its a package that's a hair more than stickers, black, and wheels. The wheels are certainly strangely interesting on a truck. I don't know if it works or not but it holds the gaze.

NO GUTS

NO GLORY

F150 HARLEY DAVIDSON EDITION


Go with the CLASS LEADING 2019 RAM 1500

The insurance company of the US Military posted the truck/auto breakdown of the most insured model's by each branch of service.
Trucks were first in #1 & 2 spots across the board. Sometimes even the #3 spot.

F-150 was first in every branch.

This will mean bragging rights to loyalists here, but the way I see it; GI's are on a tight budget while in service.


they mentioned performance items. Only thing might be is the exhaust system, it might gain 5hp, as if no incoming power additions outgoing will be the same.

22inch wheels is not a performance upgrade
BDS suspension, if it lowers the truck might corner better but then it has the Fox shocks?

I'm going to say a big UMM NO on this.

I mean all the officers and GI's with years of service must be making peanuts right??

I agree this truck needs a burly V8 engine.

You mean like back in 2014 when some company made their own version of the 2014 Silverado called the Chevy Reaper that came with an ugly body kit, a lift, and more power. All the Ford fan girls tried claiming that GM made it and that it was their attempt at a "Raptor fighter", even though GM had absolutely nothing to do with the truck.

Clearly all you gm fanboys asking for a v8 have never driven a turbo 6. Understand that the 3.5 has more tq and gets better mpgs than anything from fiat or the gm 6.2. The 2.7 rivals the 5.3 and 5.7 with 1/2 the displacement.

@ Chris

Clearly u have never driven a 6.2L v8 by GM. Nothing compares to the exhaust sound, acceleration performance, and fuel economy.

Keep drinking that kool aide though! Your real thirsty I see

intead of piping in glorious sounds of a v8 in the cab. Will Ford add Harley engine sounds to drown out the sewing maching 3.5?

SOWEEEET!!!

I did. It broke down on our drive out to Wyoming. Turbo bearing started to make a noise and a little later the engine started knocking. Metal from the turbo took a ride in the oil return line and ended up in the oil galleries
