Ford is gearing up for this year’s SEMA show with an array of over 50 vehicles being prepared for the aftermarket expo. And you can bet they’ll come in every shape and size. What Dearborn is focusing on at the moment, however, is the Edge.
In preparation for the Las Vegas show, Ford is giving us a preview of three takes on the crossover – each prepared to give the Edge Sport a different character. The baby blue example is called the Tjin Edition. Aside from the Axalta Clipper blue paint job, it’s got new headlights, 22-inch modular wheels with Falken tires, air suspension, Baer brakes, a new intercooler, custom exhaust, and a refitted interior.
More to our liking is the red example dubbed Ignition. It’s got a custom red and black paint job, full carbon-fiber aero and engine kits, enlarger lower grille, tinted glass, 22-inch monoblock wheels with Toyo Proxes rubber, a new sunroof, and a leather interior. The engine has been thoroughly reworked with new components from the likes of Webasto and JMS, along with a K&N air filter and MRT exhaust. It also gets H&R springs and Rotora aluminum brakes with ceramic pads.
Finally, the Vaccar edition is done up in silver with orange accents. Its stance also benefits from 22-inch wheels, shod with Continental tires and riding on a full air suspension. In addition to the custom paint and suspension, Vaccar redid the intake and exhaust as well as the retrimmed interior.
There will be plenty more from Ford and other automakers with SEMA fast approaching.
