Ford Mach-E 1400 SEMA Customization at ‘Ford Auto Nights’ virtual reveal
With COVID-19 knocking out this year’s live SEMA show in Las Vegas, Ford went ‘virtual’ last week – revealing their SEMA customizations of the company’s latest all-new products.
Major manufacturer vehicle customizations have been a very popular element of the annual SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturing Association) show for many years. With the in-person show cancelled this year, multiple manufacturers – including Ford – created and presented their customizations virtually.
The event – Ford Auto Nights, SEMA Show Special – was broadcast live last Thursday and Friday. Ford unveiled its customized builds that included interactive vehicle immersion sessions and an on-demand content library for participants.
“From upfitters to outfitters, and from hot-rod enthusiasts to outdoor adventurers, the show must go on, and our first-ever Ford Auto Nights SEMA Show Special keeps the customization and innovation going virtually,” said Kim Cape, director of Ford global brand and integrated marketing. “This passionate, die-hard audience with an appetite for our Ford brand is vital to us.”
Custom builds of Ford’s newest products, included the 2021 Bronco, Bronco Sport, Mustang Mach-E and the new F-150 Hybrid.
Bronco, Ford’s new outdoor brand of Built Wild SUVs, and the only domestic brand of SUVs with standard 4×4, celebrates 55 years of innovating the off-road landscape.
From the all-new and sixth-generation Bronco two-door, the first-ever Bronco four-door model and Bronco Sport, the Bronco of small SUVs, the entire family is born from innovative design, capability and extreme durability testing to ensure adventure and fun with endless customization options.
MAD Bronco Sport Badlands turns the Bronco of small SUVs into the ultimate for overlanding adventures. Ford teamed up with MAD Industries for a build that is an outdoor adventurer’s dream conversion.
MAD – an established Ford project vehicle builder – has a rich history of custom Ford builds, tricking out everything from a Mustang to an F-350.

FORD Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept reveals Bronco’s modularity. This concept is built around one of the Bronco program’s customer-use scenarios, in which a comfortable Monday through Friday Bronco is converted for a weekend of extreme off-roading, and then back to stock Badlands spec for the week ahead.
Instead of the potential damage to Bronco’s factory-equipped body parts, Bronco brand’s Built Wild innovative design process enabled the concept to have swappable front fenders and rear quarters. Easy to install before a trail ride, and removable, these concept accessory parts are made from robust and impact-ready materials that replace stock painted parts.
And for a throwback cue to the first-generation Bronco U13 Roadster model, the Bronco features a tough stepover replacement panel for maximum thrill and open-air feeling instead of traditional doors. 3D-printed titanium parts strip weight and increase strength.

Ford F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew BDS Suspension project vehicle highlights the ease of customization of the new F-150 while showcasing the all-new Pro Power Onboard mobile power generator.

For the first time in 56 years, Ford is expanding the Mustang family, bringing the famous pony into the electric age with Mustang Mach-E. The all-new, all-electric SUV is born of the same all-American ideals that have inspired the best- selling sports coupe in the world. The production Mustang Mach-E GT with options arriving next year, is targeted for 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
Mustang Mach-E 1400 is a collaboration of Ford Performance and Vaughn Gittin Jr. from RTR Vehicles. Mach-E 1400 is an all-electric road rocket that shows just how much performance can be harnessed without using a drop of gas.
This one-off Mustang Mach-E with its seven electric motors and high downforce is ready for the track, drag strip or gymkhana course – anywhere it can show how electric propulsion promises extreme Mustang performance.
