DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford F-150 and Mustang remain two of the most beloved nameplates on roads everywhere, including roads that lead to the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show.
“It wouldn’t be a SEMA show without some F-150 and Mustang love from our builder partners,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “These two iconic nameplates are always the most popular Ford vehicles throughout the show and each of these builds gives a refreshed glimpse at some of the latest trends in customization.”
The Ford display represents the largest original equipment manufacturer exhibit at the 2019 SEMA show with Ford Out Front, one of the top attractions featuring performance vehicles being showcased live on a closed track. Here’s a preview of the F-150s and Mustangs that are part of the more than 50 customized vehicles Ford is displaying at this year’s SEMA show:
