Ford Super Duty Pickups, Transit Vans Get Customized for Vegas
Even the Ford F-150 Raptor is getting in on the 2016 SEMA Show action.
Ford has previewed the remainder of its massive 2016 SEMA Show lineup, which includes a custom Ford F-150 Raptor built by Greg Foutz and the Foutz Motorsports team. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew features a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that is ready to go off-road thanks to Foutz Motorsports suspension, Fox shocks, Innov8 Racing 17×9-inch forged wheels and BFGoodrich Baja T/A 39×13.5R17 project tires.
There is also a collection of Ford Super Duty pickups heading to Las Vegas, sporting a wide range of styles. Air Design has put its touch on a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4×2 Lariat Crew Cab that features a sleek stance courtesy of a ReadyLIFT 3.5-inch leveling kit and Bilstein shocks. The F-250 Super Duty rolls on Fuel Off-Road 22-inch wheels while a black and white BASF paint job gives it a unique look.
Fabtech has created the “Shockzilla,” an off-road F-250 Super Duty 4×4 Lariat Crew Cab powered by a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V8 engine with an aFe Power intake system and Fabtech custom catback exhaust stacks. Fabtech also outfitted the pickup with an eight-inch suspension system featuring Dirt Logic coilover and bypass shocks.
TS Designs went a different route with its 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4×2 XLT Crew Cab, giving it a custom widebody to fit the massive Forgiato 26×10-inch wheels up front and 26×13-inch wheels in the rear.
Going the luxury route is MAD Industries’ 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4×4 Lariat Crew Cab, boating an interior packed with custom goods. Inside the cabin are MAD Industries custom perforated seat covers in black premium leather with black suede perforated centers, custom-painted plastics in Jet Black and Candy Red accents, SRP Racing clear-anodized block-style racing pedals in Satin Black and Lloyds Custom floor mats.
Lastly for the Super Duty pickups is a fully functioning police and tactical unit that looks like a life-size toy. The 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4×4 XL Crew Cab boasts a Skyjacker Suspensions 8.5-inch four-link lift kit, Fab Fours premium front and rear bumper and a 72-inch roof rack.
There’s also two customized Ford Transit vans, designed to show off the versatility of the model. One concept is a mobile music maker while the other features the look of a retro 1976 Ford Econoline concept.
