Ford bringing Escape, Explorer and Expedition makeovers to SEMA 2019
Ford is doubling down for the 2019 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. In addition to Ranger and Transit, they will debut the all-new 2020 Ford Escape and Explorer with the Ford Expedition showing tricked-out SUV custom builds.
“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.
