New Ford SUVs Get Mean for SEMA 2019

As always, custom is the name of the game as the SEMA event in Vegas. This year too carmakers are happy to provide their latest cars for makeovers performed by some of the world’s most famous shops and tuners.

By far, the largest display of cars in Vegas this year will be that of Ford. At the beginning of next month, an army of some 50 Blue Oval logoed cars will descend upon the city, advertising the machines themselves, mostly new models, and the equipment sold by the carmaker’s chosen partners.

Last week we got to see what Ford has up its sleeve for SEMA when it comes to pickup trucks and vans. As the start date for the event approaches, the company previewed the tuned range of new SUVs.

The new Escape, Explorer and Expedition are coming to Vegas dressed in custom colors, boasting performance parts and mean looks, in a bid to make the display as spectacular as possible.

The Escape comes in two versions and has been tuned by LGE-CTS Motorsports, Air Design USA, and MAD Industries. The LGE variant comes with TSW Petrol P6A wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport tires, Borla cat-back exhaust, and a lowered look thanks to the Eibach springs used.

Air Design USA tweaked the Sport Hybrid Escape by adding 20-inch Forgiato Flow 001 wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Verde tires, but also added new body elements, like black fender flares, door rocker moldings and silver skid plates.

The MAD Industries Escape packs 21-inch Rotiform OZR wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires and it too uses Eibach lowering springs.

Blood Type Racing was in charge with making the Ford Explorer Limited Hybrid look particularly mean with the addition of 20-inch Ace Alloy AFF09 black chrome wheels wrapped in Toyo Tires Open Country A/T II tires, Borla cat-back exhaust with black chrome tips, and new body elements, including the front grille and rear bumper.
