Army Of Customized Ford F-150s Marching To Las Vegas

Ford’s lineup for this year’s SEMA show is impressive, with no less than 50 vehicles to be showcased by the automaker in Las Vegas. Among these, seven are based on the F-150 pickup truck, varying from high-performance street trucks to off-road adventure rigs.

Probably the most intriguing of them is the one built by MRT, who paired a Tremec Magnum 6-Speed manual transmission to the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine. Other tuning bits include a large capacity intercooler, refined boost mapping for the turbos, a roll cage and race seats with 5-point harnesses. Styling-wise, MRT’s F-150 features a two-tone paint set up with a yellow pinstripe.

The Leer Edition Outdoorsman F-150 is a more utilitarian interpretation of Ford’s F-150 SuperCrew, featuring a covered bed, a modified interior with premium leather, more power as well as chassis updates to make it more capable off-road. The gloss blue paint is accented with matte black elements both inside and out.

Roush Performance also will show its take on the F-150 with a 650hp performance version. Powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8, the Roush Performance F-150 is a cross between a street truck and track support vehicle, “capable of tearing up the streets, drag strip or even race track.” The truck is fitted with a performance suspension kit as well as aggressive Power Stop drilled and slotted rotors.

The CGS Performance Products F-150 stands out thanks to its huge 24-inch wheels and air suspension system. A throaty exhaust and cold air kit for the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine complete the package.

AirDesign USA’s interpretation of the Ford F-150 showcases a strong and rugged appearance thanks to easy to install pieces that can be fitted “relatively hassle-free in the convenience of your own driveway.”

Probably the most spectacular-looking custom F-150 is the one created by Forgiato, which combines 24-inch wheels and meaty off-road Nitto tires with a black and red paint scheme. Under the hood there’s a supercharged 5.0-liter V8.

Finally, Galpin Auto Sports gave the F-150 a Gulf Oil livery, wider fenders that accommodate super wide 20-inch wheels and a coilover suspension setup.
