Here are 16 of the best examples.
Ford isn't just bringing a corral of customized Broncos to the annual Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) Show for 2021. It has a whole stable of horses to show off, including some new ones. This year we'll see a bunch of customized Ford Mavericks, hearkening back to our mini-truckin' days in the '90s, and a few Mustang Mach-Es to go along with the F-Series pickups and Mustang coupes.
This is just a selection of the more than 40 custom rides Ford will display, all of which feature Ford Accessories and Ford Performance Parts. The company notes these items can be ordered to your home too, or your local dealer.
The Ford selection starts with the D.R.A.G.G Maverick Pickup, created through a collaboration between Oxnard Union High School and the Oxnard police department in California. The acronym is for Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti. As you can tell from the graphics the vehicle is meant to be a lifeguard rescue truck, and features toolbox swing cases, a watersports carrier, roof rack and crossbars, Neosupreme seat covers and off-road lights.
The Air Design Maverick is based on the Lariat SuperCrew FX4 Off-Road Package trim and houses a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four. The fender flares were created by Air Design USA, as were the door molding and tailgate applique. It has 31-inch all-terrain tires, 18-inch wheels and a 1.5-inch lift kit. The only performance upgrade is a catback exhaust (featuring black chrome tips).
The Tucci Maverick, created by Tucci Hot Rods out of Marcy, New York is an XLT underneath. It has a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, all-wheel drive and 3D-printed fender flares, front lip and spoiler. Additive manufacturing is one of the company's specialties. It has Borla exhaust, coilover shocks and custom wheels. From Ford Accessories the Tucci gets a dashcam, sunshade, and spray-in bedliner.
Moving from Maverick to Ranger, this Attitude Performance Outside Magazine Ranger Tremor is all about getting into the wilderness. The Tremor gets a 6-inch suspension lift, Ford Performance front bumper and sport exhaust, and lighting by Rigid. The rooftop tent comes from Thule and the bed rack is from Yakima. For longer excursions, the Outside Ranger Tremor comes with a Watergen atmospheric water generation system that pulls water from the humidity in the air.
The Skyjacker Ranger is next, featuring a Skyjacker suspension with a 6-inch lift. Skyjacker also did the front and rear bumpers while Warn provides the winch and rockslider steps. From the Ford Performance catalog, we get Rigid A-pillar lighting, a catback exhaust with black chrome tips, a custom tune for the EcoBoost engine and a differential cover.
The Hellwig F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid is the first of the full sizers. It began life as a XLT SuperCrew with a 3.5-liter PowerBoost hybrid V6 and the FX4 off-road package. Hellwig adds front and rear sway bars; the helper springs and suspension kit come from Pro Series and Borla does the exhaust. Tires measure 35 inches and the wheels are 17s. Here Ford Performance adds the fender flares, off-road bumpers and rock sliders, winch and rocker panel protection. For overlanding the Hellwig comes with floodlights, spotlights, a refrigerator, awning and 10-gallon shower.
The BTR is built on the bones of an F-150 Tremor and gets a Yakima roof rack and rooftop ten, pull-out kitchen, a hitch-mounted bike rack and a built-in shower. To run everything the pickup uses a Ford Pro Power Onboard generator. It even has a projector setup for nighttime movies.
That Pro Power Onboard generator comes in on the next concept too, called the Hypertech F-150 Hybrid Lariat. This pickup has an electric grille, refrigerator/freezer, washer and driver, ice machine and sink all running off 7.2 kW of available onboard power. For airing down off-road (actually airing back up again), it comes with a compressor from Ford Performance, which also provides the wheels and tires, bumpers and catback exhaust.
For the desert racing enthusiasts, Ford is bringing the Addictive Desert Designs F-150 Raptor. The main difference is the graphics, which look fantastic matching the beadlock wheels. ADD also provided the front and rear bumpers, bed-mounted tire rack, rock slider steps and a chase rack. Like the previous trucks, Rigid provides the lighting.
Going even bigger, the Advanced Accessory Concepts F-150 Super Duty Tremor makes the already monstrous pickup even more monstrous. It uses the 7.3-liter Godzilla engine for power with a catback exhaust from Borla. It also gets locking hubs, a coilover suspension, 17-inch wheels, 37-inch tires and upgraded front and rear swaybars from Ford Performance Parts. The winch kit is from Warn and Rigid again provides the lights. Inside there's a safe, a fridge/freezer and a PowerBass USA stereo system.
The final truck is a Mad Industries F-450 Super Duty Platinum. This truck comes with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel, built by Mad. It has a fifth wheel for the biggest toys as well as forged wheels, off-road tires and an upgraded suspension. From the Ford Performance Parts list comes tow hooks, an air compressor, flip-down steps, retractable bed cover and more. To keep things clean and safe the F-450 gets all-weather floor mats and a Console Vault safe.
Getting into the EVs, the first is called the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pedatric Cancer Mustang Mach-E GT AWD. The charity helps families battling pediatric cancer. It comes in Space White paint, with 20-inch Rotiform wheels, Brembo brakes and an adjustable Motion Control Suspension. Inside, the Mach-E gets special seats, a dashcam and a charge cord bag from DC Safety. The AHF is going to run the car at the 2022 Bonneville Speed Week, aiming for 200 mph. It will be auctioned off in 2023 to support the foundation.
Shelby has been conspicuously absent from the Mustang Mach-E GT, until now. This concept features the Shelby (and American racing) colors of white and blue, as well as a boatload of graphene-infused carbon fiber. Ford says the new front fascia improves aerodynamics and lowers front-end lift. It rides on one-piece Monoblock wheels, 20-inch tires and MagneRide dampers.
The Tjin Edition Mustang Mach-E California Route One features a bright orange coat of paint with teal green accents. Lightwurkz does the LED headlights while custom solar panels provide some power. The Tjin has a RayVolt USA electric bike on a Thule bike rack. As you can see this car is slammed to the ground with a custom air suspension from Hoppo's Suspension; the big brake kit comes from Baer underneath custom 22-inch Vossen wheels. The interior features more teal accents and white Recaro "seating surfaces."
On the muscle car end of the spectrum, we have the All Star Mustang EcoBoost HPP, which Ford says is "Gene Tjin's yin to brother Neil Tjin's Mustang Mach-E yang." The teal paint is from South County Auto Body and the aero body is from Anderson Composites. Like the Tjin, the All Star is lowered with an air suspension while Falken tires are mounted on Vossen wheels. It too sports Baer brakes. Under the hood is a Cobb Tuning intercooler and cold-air intake.
The last car on our list, but not the last at the Ford display, is the M2 Motoring Mustang GT. This is a traditionally powered 'Stang with a 5.0-liter V8, but attached is a Ford Performance Parts supercharger bringing the output up to 750 hp. The half-shafts have been upgraded and in front there's a new splitter. It has bigger brakes, Ford Performance lowering springs and Mach 1 adjustable camber plates. There are a few more bits on the inside including a laser-etched armrest, Recaro seats, GT500 instrument panel trim and a carbon fiber shift knob.
