Ford is preparing for one of its biggest showings at SEMA yet.

Along with a pair of custom F-150s and five personalized Transit vans, Ford has now announced that a trio of EcoBoost Expedition SUVs will also be heading to Las Vegas next week. The new 2015 Ford Expedition will be customized by DUB Magazine, Tjin Edition and Vaccar, taking this full-size utility vehicle to a whole new level.

The DUB Magazine Ford Expedition (seen above) aims to add a new level of style and sophistication with custom mesh accents as well as a unique front grille and lights. Additionally it’ll roll on massive 26-inch rims from Dropstars Wheels. To lower the vehicle, DUB turned to a suspension kit from McGaughy’s Suspension Lift Kits while a Borla exhaust helps the EcoBoost engine breathe. Naturally the interior will feature a plethora of upgrades including a multimedia and sound system as well as multiple monitors in the rear-seating area.

Along with the custom widebody Honda Fit that we previewed before, Tjin Edition has also given the 2015 Expedition the widebody treatment with custom metal fender flares, dark gray paint job and new liftgate. Vortech Engineering helps boost the performance of the EcoBoost engine with a charge cooler kit while a Magnaflow exhaust helps bump performance to 405 hp. Supporting this Expedition on the show floor is an Accuair air management system with Air Lift struts while 24-inch Rotiform wheels wrapped with Falken tires adorn each corner.

Lastly there’s the 2015 Ford Expedition XLT by Vaccar that was built for driving through winter in style. Featured on the outside is a custom two-tone matte mountain gray paint scheme along with a Vaccar Grill Guardian brush guard, swivel hooks by Monster Hooks, spring steps and a hitch stop from Go Rhino!. The Vaccar Expedition will travel on 20-inch M15 wheels from Mamba Off-Road Wheels; they’re wrapped with Grabber AT2 tires from General Tire.

“The builders really outdid themselves with these one-of-a-kind versions of Ford’s full-size utility,” said Mike Nicopolis, of Ford’s SEMA aftermarket support group. “The 2015 Ford Expedition offers great space, performance and capability in an impressive package that is the perfect platform for creativity and customization.”
