Ford is showing off a handful of concepts to be unveiled during its 2020 SEMA webcast due to take place Thursday evening. As is typical, Ford is highlighting some of its latest and greatest models with in-house and partnered designs based on the Mustang Mach-E electric crossover, the Bronco, the Bronco Sport, the updated F-150 and the new Ranger Tremor.
The annual SEMA show in Las Vegas may have been canceled due to COVID, but the overdone soldier continues to build. Let’s dive right in.
Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400
Of the cars Ford wants to show, this is what we already know the most about. As the video above shows, we spent time with this one in person. This seven-engine, 1,400 hp EV that tears up tires combines form and function. The fully customizable landing gear allows for both high-speed time attack and drift setups, as well as just about everything in between. Its custom aero can deliver up to 2,300 pounds of downforce at 160 mph.
Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2 door concept
It’s no surprise that the all-new Bronco made the cut for Ford’s 2020 SEMA slate, and that concept highlights the modular body of the 4×4. In Ford’s words, this is supposed to be a “Monday through Friday” Bronco going through the process of being rebuilt for a weekend of extreme off-roading and then back in stock, which is pretty much the ideal use case for the most dedicated off-road buyer.
MAD Bronco Sport Badlands
The “MAD” in the name of this Bronco Sport concept identifies the store in which it was built. So don’t be alarmed by the relatively tame nature of this concept. This overland approach leaves the core of Bronco Sport relatively intact and accomplishes most of its goals with the help of a camp trailer and additional mounting solutions.
2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid
This build was done with the kind permission of Ford partner BDS Suspension. It underlines the versatility of the new F-150 Hybrid, which is shown here both as a foreman’s daily “office” and as a weekend getaway.
“Friday night is coming and these work tools and equipment can easily be swapped out for adventure gear and accessories,” Ford said in the announcement. “Sunday evening is coming, the party is over and on Monday morning the F-150 is ready for use again, so that the truck can easily be converted back into all business tools and equipment.”
Sure, sounds good.
2021 Ford Ranger XLT Tremor SuperCrew
This is another in-house job performed by Ford’s parts and accessories fitting team. While it starts off the shelf as a tremor model, almost all of the Ford extras shown here are available as add-ons, including the snorkel mount, bed shelf, and hood-mounted taillights.
Ford’s 2020 SEMA webcast will take place at 8 p.m. EST tomorrow (Thursday November 19), and fans can sign up to join breakout sessions taking place on Friday if they have questions about any of the builds or the aftermarket products available.
