With the cancellation of the 2020 SEMA show, Ford and its collaborators had some extra time to come up with a slew of modified vehicles to show off at the 2021 event How many vehicles make up a slew, exactly? In this case, it means the more than 40 unique Ford project vehicles that will be on display in Las Vegas next week.
It’s no surprise that the SEMA fleet is made up of some of the brand’s more popular models, including at least three Mavericks, two Rangers, four F-150s and three Mustang Mach-E SUVs. Larger F-series trucks, gas-powered Mustangs and the Bronco and Bronco Sport SUVs will also be represented, all with the intention of inspiring customers to personalize their own Fords.

Skyjacker Ford Ranger
Ford, of course, is hyping its Ford Performance Parts and Ford Licensed Accessories, and that’s why you’ll see those products all over the vehicles on display, including on the Skyjacker Ranger pictured here. This truck tries to take the Ranger’s off-roading skills to the next level with a Skyjacker Suspension six-inch lift, a Warn winch, and rock slider side steps and lighting enhancements with Rigid Industries lighting on the A-pillar and a rooftop off-road light bar. The powertrain has also been recalibrated, and the cat-back exhaust system has black chrome tips.
The lifeguard-ready D.R.A.G.G. Maverick is a personal favorite, not for any particular feature, but because it came about through a collaboration between Oxnard Union High School and the police department of Oxnard, California. The two disparate groups came up with a beach rescue concept truck that houses toolbox swing cases in a Ford Licensed Accessories topper. It also has a watersports carrier, fender flares, front seat covers made from Neosupreme, a sunshade, and off-road cube lights.
The Tucci version of the Ford Maverick takes the small pickup in a different direction, while keeping the drag racing spirit. Looking the part of a hot-rodded pickup from an earlier era, the XLT series Maverick was transformed by Tucci Hot Rods to be wider with 3D-printed fender flares and a 3D-printed front lip and retro-looking custom wheels. Four Recaro Sportster seats and racing harnesses make sure no one inside the truck forgets the kind of vehicle they’re sitting in.
Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT Concept
On the electrified side of things, one of the modified Mustang Mach-E GTs on display will look familiar to anyone who knows Ford’s racing history. The name, of course, gives some of the details away, but this blue-and-white-striped performance vehicle replaces some of the original body pieces with graphene-infused carbon-fiber components made by Shelby American. The changes include the front fascia, front fenders and rear flares, and a different hood that has a large vent in order to lower front-end lift. Springs, tires and seats have all also been upgraded. This year will be the first time Ford has brought both a gas-powered Mustang and a Mustang Mach-E to SEMA.
M2 Motoring Mustang GT
One of the gas-powered Mustangs on display will be the M2 Motoring Mustang GT. Starting with a manual-transmission 2021 Mustang GT with the Performance package, M2 Motoring lowered the springs, added a GT350R big brake kit, and then gave the V-8 engine a 750-hp supercharger kit, enhanced half-shafts and Performance Pack Level 2 front splitter from the Ford Performance Parts upgrade menu. The car was also visually modified with custom Motorcraft livery on the outside and a laser-etched armrest, Recaro RPSP leather seats and GT500 instrument panel trim on the inside.
MAD F-450 Super Duty Platinum
Large trucks are not being ignored at SEMA, thanks to the presence of the MAD Industries F-450 Super Duty Platinum fifth-wheel. Kids of all ages will love the forged wheels, upgraded sway bars, custom four-inch axle-back exhaust with black chrome tips and various MAD Industries color-matched exterior accents. For added off-road benefits, the MAD truck also offers a portable air compressor, an electric retractable bed cover, rear and side flip-down bed steps and, in case you can’t tell it’s a big truck, black chrome “Super Duty” hood lettering. There are also spotlights galore and a refrigerator/freezer installed.
