Ford SEMA 2016 Preview: BMX-Themed Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew
Ford will be looking to pick up more hardware at this year’s SEMA Show, which gets underway on November 1st in Las Vegas. Last year, Ford took home three awards—Hottest Sport-Compact (Ford Focus), Hottest Car (Ford Mustang), and Hottest Truck (Ford F-Series)—meaning that the Blue Oval will have a lot to live up to this year.
Fortunately for Ford, all early indications are that it will have the tools necessary to repeat last year’s performance. The automaker has previewed a number of trucks ahead of the show, and each seems primed to push the cause of Ford’s superiority.
Let’s take a look at the BMX-themed Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew.
