Source: Ford | Published: Wed Oct 26, 2011

From mild to wild, and from old to new, this year's Ford Motor Company display at SEMA has something for everyone. Ford will showcase some of the most legendary cars in its storied 110-year racing history, introduce a stunning array of show vehicles, from Fiesta to the Super Duty, and reveal more about Ford's global performance vehicles, Fiesta ST and Focus ST. Ford is also going to yank the covers off an all-new 363-cubic-inch Ford Racing stroker engine, and introduce the latest Ford licensed restoration part that's sure to delight fans of the classic 1964-66 Mustang.

Ford's new Focus is making its SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show debut with seven customized cars that showcase the possibilities of both the hatch and sedan. Offering just about anything a customer could want to amp up the performance and personalization of the car, the Focus models have a wide variety of upgrades and enhancements. Since launch, the new Focus has been gaining interest, with nearly 500,000 customers raising their hands to request more information about the latest small car from Ford.

"Millennials, which this car is all about, want to personalize every aspect of their lives - everything from laptop covers to body art, and even cars," said Mike Murphy, C-Car Marketing manager. "Being unique allows them to stand apart and be different, and all the Focus models we have on display at SEMA live up to that standard."

The hot-selling Fiesta adds to Ford's SEMA display, showing off the possibilities for a car with a style all its own.

"Fiesta is a natural fit for SEMA because it's a unique brand," said Lew Echlin, Ford Global Car Marketing manager. "One of the top three purchase reasons for the vehicle is that it fits the customer's personality. That's very rare. It's an emotional purchase, so owners want to personalize it, with a significant percentage of them even giving their car a name."

Ford Explorer and F-Series at SEMA

Ford trucks and SUVs are known for their unmatched capability and at this year's SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show, they will flex their style muscle as well. Three Ford Explorer SUVs and four F-Series trucks will be on display, showing off the extreme versatility of their respective lineups.

"The all-new Ford Explorer lends itself to a lot of customization trends because there are so many directions you can go in. Whether it's amping up the style, performance or capability, they all work seamlessly with Explorer," said Melvin Betancourt, Ford SEMA design manager. "Additionally, the F-Series trucks are the perfect canvas for customers to personalize. They offer a great wow factor and can easily be taken to the extreme in terms of performance."
