Thanks to a supercharged V8. No EcoBoost here.
Ford dropped the Harley-Davison special edition from its lineup back in 2013 but last year, an independent customizer called Tuscany Motor Company brought it back. Since then, Tuscany also revealed another Harley-themed truck based on a GMC Sierra. The GMC version garnered a lot of attention but here at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, Tuscany has arrived with an even cooler truck that is once again based on a Ford.
The 2020 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson has arrived at Chicago looking very similar to last year's model. But if you look closely at the hood, you'll notice a new badge that wasn't there before. It reads "Supercharged."
That's right, there's no turbocharged EcoBoost V6 under this hood because the Indiana-based truck outfitter has opted to use a 5.0-liter Coyote V8. And Tuscany didn't just stop with a V8, it added a supercharger, high-flow filter, aluminum intercooler, upgraded fuel injectors, and high-flow exhaust, culminating in a total output of 700 horsepower. The handling has also been upgraded with BDS-tuned suspension, Fox shocks, and 22-inch Harley-Davidson Fatboy-style wheels.
You'll notice this truck right away thanks to a new grille, integrated LED light bar, custom rear bumper covers, and plenty of Harley-Davison badging. Inside, you'll spot plenty of custom touches including new black trim, billet aluminum pedals, custom gauges, orange stitching, custom leather, and embroidery.
All Tuscany trucks come with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty and you can order it through your local Ford dealership. Total MSRP for the truck is listed at $107,430 and only a limited number will be produced. We had a chance to speak with a Tuscany spokesperson who told us the company is working to offer the supercharger upgrade for customers who purchased the 2019 model.
CarBuzz was also told Tuscany has already received interest from customers of the 2019 model who want the new supercharged truck. Last year's truck was mostly powered by a non-supercharged V8 but Tuscany says it built a handful of Harley-Davidson trucks with the EcoBoost engine, though these trucks are far rarer.
