Having made the move away from sedans, Ford is showing off the potential for its utility vehicles and pickups at SEMA, with “big” emphasis on the Super Duty lineup.
Ford is storming SEMA not just with the biggest OEM display at the show, but with five takes on its 2020 F-Series Super Duty offerings, which has in the past been a favourite for customization.
“Super Duty customers love to personalize their trucks, whether modified for the street, off-road, towing and hauling or the ultimate in recreational use,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “For 2020 Super Duty customers, these SEMA trucks feature new levels of incredible customization, capability and performance.”
