Het is de grootste en opvallendste tuningshow van Amerika, en dit jaar lijkt het alleen maar heftiger te worden. Deels schuldig aan het feit dat de kleinere modellen geen toekomst meer hebben in het land van herkomst.
Jammer, want er zaten soms best aardige creaturen bij, nu moeten we het doen met ‘dikker dan dik ‘ en dat gaat gepaard met modellen zoals de 2020 Ford Explorer, Expedition, Escape, Ranger en zelfs de Transit.
De SEMA Show vind plaats op 5 tot 8 november a.s., in de Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas

All-New Ford Escape, Explorer Join Ford Expedition Wit Tricked-out Makeovers for SEMA 2019
The all-new 2020 Ford Escape and Explorer make their debut at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show, joining Ford Expedition with tricked-out builds highlighting the latest trends in customization.
“There’s a growing hunger for consumers to personalize their SUVs, which have a huge range of possibilities from lowered street rides to off-road overlanding,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford vehicle personalization and accessories. “As the latest versions of Escape and Explorer continue to provide buyers with even more options for what they want, the aftermarket is a great place to see just how much more there is out there.”
The Ford display represents the largest original equipment manufacturer exhibit at this year’s SEMA show. And for those looking to take a thrill ride in a Ford Performance vehicle on a closed track, the popular interactive experience Ford Out Front returns. Here’s a preview of some of the more than 50 customized vehicles Ford is showcasing:

Zoom Q8 cameras and Sennheiser mics enhance Good Boy Daisy’s ability to capture their travels and exploits, while a QSC TouchMix 8 digital mixer allows them to record and share their exploits with the whole world.
MAD Industries evolves the 2019 Ford Expedition into a daily driver with the chops for some serious weekend adventuring.
This build features a Whipple EcoBoost air induction system with Icon Dynamics Stage 2 coilover suspension that delivers performance whether it be the daily grind on the road or adventure off the beaten path. Fuel Forged FF-45 22-inch monoblock wheels with Nitto Ridge Grappler tires provide style for the city while keeping traction in the dirt. PowerStop Z36 high-performance rotors and ceramic formula extreme brake pads bring this big bad SUV to a halt.

Tjin Edition is among the first new-generation Ford Rangers slammed to the ground via an air suspension, lowered 8 inches in the front and 9 inches in the rear.

Addictive Desert Designs rock sliders and bumpers, Rigid lighting, ARB jack and Bushwacker fender flares round out the off-roading gear.
