SEMA: Ford Will Reveal Tricked Out Ford Escape/Expedition At 2019 Show

The all-new 2020 Ford Escape and Explorer make their debut at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show, joining Ford Expedition with tricked-out builds highlighting the latest trends in customization.

“There’s a growing hunger for consumers to personalize their SUVs, which have a huge range of possibilities from lowered street rides to off-road overlanding,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford vehicle personalization and accessories. “As the latest versions of Escape and Explorer continue to provide buyers with even more options for what they want, the aftermarket is a great place to see just how much more there is out there.”

The Ford display represents the largest original equipment manufacturer exhibit at this year’s SEMA show. And for those looking to take a thrill ride in a Ford Performance vehicle on a closed track, the popular interactive experience Ford Out Front returns. Here’s a preview of some of the more than 50 customized vehicles Ford is showcasing:

LGE-CTS Motorsports Urban Ford Escape

Equally adept on a routine trip around town as it is blasting down dirt roads in Baja in search of that epic spot to surf, this Urban edition 2020 Ford Escape by LGE-CTS Motorsports is driven by attitude and poised to attack.

Featuring an aggressive stance courtesy of Eibach performance lowering springs combined with 20-inch TSW Petrol P6A wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport tires, Urban Escape joins a stable of off-road-centric builds by LGE-CTS Motorsports. A custom Borla cat-back exhaust and Power Commander throttle control system give the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine under its hood an aggressive growl.

Roof rack crossbars by Ford Accessories paired with Yakima mounts make this nimble Escape an adventure seeker’s dream. With a Rogelio’s Auto Upholstery custom leather interior and accessories for life audio products by Scosche, outdoor enthusiasts will be bathed in luxury en route to their next mountain biking or snowboarding adventure.

MAD Industries Ford Expedition Stealth

MAD Industries evolves the 2019 Ford Expedition into a daily driver with the chops for some serious weekend adventuring. This build features a Whipple EcoBoost air induction system with Icon Dynamics Stage 2 coilover suspension that delivers performance whether it be the daily grind on the road or adventure off the beaten path. Fuel Forged FF-45 22-inch monoblock wheels with Nitto Ridge Grappler tires provide style for the city while keeping traction in the dirt. PowerStop Z36 high-performance rotors and ceramic formula extreme brake pads bring this big bad SUV to a halt.

An Adapt 50-inch lightbar by Rigid and SR-L series spreader white halos light the way to the great outdoors regardless of conditions, while a Yakima SkyRise rooftop tent makes setting up camp easy and comfortable. As this Expedition Stealth demonstrates, MAD Industries is up for adventure anywhere anytime, so you can work and play even harder.
