Ford is bringing over 50 custom rides to this year’s SEMA Show, including Escapes, Explorers, and Expedition SUVs.
We’ve already seen a few of Ford’s custom Rangers that will be present at the Las Vegas Convention Center in November, but now we’re being told that Ford’s presence is going to be massive. Over 50 custom vehicles are heading to SEMA thanks to collaborations between Ford and various aftermarket parts manufacturers and custom tuning garages.
Here’s a few sneak peeks, starting with Air Design USA’s Ford Escape Sport Hybrid. Based on the Escape Hybrid with its 2.5-L inline 4-cylinder and twin electric motors, the Sport Hybrid tries to enhance the crossover’s image with some performance-inspired enhancements.
A set of custom 20-inch Forgiato Flow 001 wheels is wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Verde tires for insane grip, while black fenders, rocker moldings, and two-tone black and white paint arrest the eyes as much as the silver skid plates and black-painted hood. On the inside, a Ford Accessories cargo organizer, cargo mats, floor liners, and a portal fridge from Indel B makes this an extremely livable sport utility vehicle.
Next, we have CGS Performance Products with their custom Ford Explorer ST. Once again we start with the wheels, which are 24-inch Savinis shod in Pirelli P-Zero tires. A Borla cat-back exhaust has carbon fiber tips that match well with the grey exterior color and red accents. On the inside, a custom interior from Alea Leather makes this SUV as luxurious as it is sporty.
And finally, MAD Industries presents their Ford Expedition Stealth. There's nothing stealthy about this design, with its Whipple cold air intake and Icon Dynamics Stage 2 coilover suspension. Fuel Forged FF-45 22-inch monoblock wheels with Nitto Ridge Grappler tires provide incredible off-road grip while PowerStop Z36 high-performance rotors and ceramic formula extreme brake pads get this big SUV to stop in record time.
A 50-inch light bar from Rigid and a Yakima SkiRise rooftop tent make this Expedition a home away from home. A home with 400 horsepower from a twin-turbo V6.
Expect at least 47 more vehicles from Ford to attend this year's SEMA Show, starting November 5th.
