Ford is bringing 7 fully customized F-series pickup trucks to this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Ford is pulling out all the stops for this year’s SEMA Show, bringing with them a whopping seven custom F-150 and F-250 projects built in collaboration with tuning houses from across America. Some are built for speed, some are built for off-roading, and some are built to be as obnoxiously loud as humanly possible.
Starting with Kurt Busch and ZB Customs, we have a Ford F-150 Lariat Sport 4x2 SuperCab that’s been given twin-turbos to produce 1,000 hp. Helping maintain control of this ludicrously powerful truck are a set of Brembo brakes with 8-piston calipers in the front and 4-pistons in the back, along with a 2-inch suspension lowering kit.
A carbon fiber front splitter and rear spoiler help out as much as they can without adding too much weight, while PAC Racing provides coil-over springs and sway bars along with more suspension upgrades from KBI.
We’re not sure if we’ll be able to see this truck in action at SEMA, but we certainly hope so.
Along with the 1,000 hp twin-turbo F-150 comes a supercharged entry from SpeedKore. A 2018 F-150 XLT 4x2 Regular Cab has had its 5.0-L V8 given the supercharger treatment and then lowered 3-inches to make it a low-down speed machine.
As is SpeedKore’s modus operandi, they’ve added as much carbon fiber as possible including a new front splitter, front fenders, cab panels, door and tailgate handles, and brake vents. They’ve also added a Brantley Gilbert-inspired custom guitar and amp rack since this is apparently a guitarist’s truck.
We don’t have performance figures for this truck, but we hope it races the 1,000 hp model from Kurt Busch and ZB Customs.
Moving on to something a little different, Full-Race Motorsports’ Gen-2 “Freak-O-Boost” F-150 is loud, proud, and not afraid to let its freak-flag fly. A bright blue and orange paint job announces its presence from as far as outer space, while an LED lighting kit from RIGID further enhances the already brilliant colors.
Under the hood is Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, along with twin-turbos, a new intercooler, a cold-air intake, and a cat-back exhaust.
There are 4 more custom F-Series pickups, including offerings from Transfer Flow, Extang, Wilderness Collective, and DeBerti Designs. See them all at Ford’s booth at the SEMA Show starting October 30th.
