GMC SIERRA HARLEY-DAVIDSON EDITION SURPRISES THE PICKUP TRUCK SCENE

It’s The First Non-Ford Harley Davidson Edition Pickup Truck

GMC Sierra

Remember the Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition? In case you don’t, here’s a bit of a refresher: from 2000 to 2011, the Harley-Davidson Edition started as an appearance package featuring colorized themes that matched the bikes and logos of the iconic American motorcycle company. Then from 2002 to 2003 things got far more interesting, and the F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition featured a slightly detuned version of the supercharged 5.4L V8 engine from the SVT Lightning. Then came a 100th Anniversary Edition for F-150 SuperCrew trucks, followed by an expansion to the Super Duty trucks in the 2004 model year.

After 2008, the option package adopted many of the options featured from the Platinum trim level, albeit with leather seating produced from materials reserved for Harley-Davidson biker jackets. But by 2012, the Harley-Davidson Edition was replaced by the Limited trim level, and Ford no longer officially produced these licensed pickup trucks.

Enter Tuscany Automotive, an aftermarket company known for its special packages on GM pickup trucks, such as the Chevrolet Silverado ZRX. In 2018, Tuscany and H-D collaborated to resurrect the Harley-Davidson Edition Ford F-150, making a limited run of them for the 2019 model year. But now it seems that production run has finished its course, and Tuscany Automotive has gone to both return to its GM focus while expanding the Harley-Davidson Edition nameplate to a marque other than on a Ford F-150. Behold, the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Harley-Davidson Edition.

The new pickup includes over 65 numerous edition-specific components that make the 2020 model truck distinctly Harley-Davidson. With styling inspired by the Fat Boy motorcycle, the GMC Sierra Harley-Davidson Edition features 65 unique components, highlighted by extensive body work, a billet-tipped exhaust kit, BDS suspension and 35-inch tires surrounding 22-inch wheels.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but the 2020 GMC Sierra Harley-Davidson Edition will be available for delivery via select authorized dealers beginning February 2020.
