Ford always has a big presence at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada, and this year would have been no different if the show hadn't been canceled by the ongoing Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
To give us a taste of what it had planned, Ford and its partners put together some of the custom builds and presented them during a virtual show late on Thursday.
Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept
The Mustang is typically the star of SEMA but this year another vehicle, also from Ford, had a strong chance of stealing the crown. We're talking of course about the 2021 Bronco which Ford used to create a one-off concept designed for off-roading. It's based on the two-door Bronco in Badlands grade and with the Sasquatch off-road package, and features impact-ready fenders that can easily be swapped in for the stock fenders prior to hitting a trail.
Ford Bronco Sport Badlands by MAD
Ford also revealed a concept based on the smaller 2021 Bronco Sport. This one was developed with the folks at MAD, and is also based on the Badlands grade. It was developed with overlanding in mind and features a trailer and roof rack to hold all of the gear you'll need when away from home.
Ford Ranger XLT Tremor SuperCrew by Ford Accessories and Ford Performance Parts
Naturally, Ford hasn't forgotten its pickup fans. The Blue Oval presented two pickup concepts, one based on the Ranger and the other on the F-150. The Ranger concept is based on the Tremor grade and fitted with numerous parts from the Ford Accessories and Ford Performance Parts catalogs. Most of the parts fitted are designed to hold extra gear, such as a mountain bike or kayak.
Ford F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew by BDS Suspension
The F-150 concept is based on the new 2021 F-150's hybrid option, and was built in partnership with BDS Suspension. The aim of the concept was to show how a serious work vehicle can do double duty as an adventure vehicle.
