Get Your SEMA Fix with Ford Auto Nights SEMA Show Special
Oh, you thought a pandemic was going to stop Ford from tricking out a bunch of stuff? Nuh-uh. Ford’s still aiming to be the hottest brand at SEMA even if the 2020 show has been canceled. How? On Thursday and Friday, Ford will broadcast the Ford Auto Nights SEMA Show Special on its YouTube channel, showing off the potential of vehicles like the 2021 Bronco, Bronco Sport, Mustang Mach-E, and F-150.
One of Ford’s Hottest New Vehicles: The first-ever Bronco Sport ain’t your average crossover
“From upfitters to outfitters, and from hot rodders 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.”
Ford will spend the next two nights spotlighting its four newest and most exciting products in scintillating fashion. Tonight at 8 p.m. EST, Ford goes live on YouTube “for 60 minutes of mud-splattered, rubber-burning entertainment.” Sounds pretty close to my regular Thursday night routine, but hey, Ford’s also promising some surprises, so it sounds like there’ll be reason enough to tune in.
Friday’s event goes into the technical details of the concepts revealed on Thursday. This also includes four panel discussions with Ford engineers, designers, and drivers. Panels cover the four big new products: the Bronco, Bronco Sport, Mustang Mach-E, and all-new F-150. You can register for your panel of choice at https://fordautoshows.com/reg/. And! If you’re one of the first 500, Ford will mail you a cool decal.
The must-see concepts of Ford Auto Nights SEMA Show Special
In anticipation of the Ford Auto Nights SEMA Show Special, Ford is already giving us a taste of what’s to come. Probably the most interesting one of the bunch is the Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch Two-Door Concept, because, like, holy crap, look at it. Ford says this is a throwback to the classic Bronco U13 Roadster that features replaceable front fenders and rear quarters as well as 3D-printed titanium parts. Also, does it climb up rocks? Sure looks like it. Does it have the seven-speed manual? You can certainly hope so.
Ford’s also teasing a project vehicle version of the Ford F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew, an accessorized take on the upcoming Ford Ranger XLT Tremor SuperCrew, and a MAD Industries Bronco Sport Badlands with all sortsa outdoors gear. Tasty, no? Ford will also spiritually defend the Mustang’s 2019 SEMA Car of the Year award by rolling out its positively insane Mustang Mach-E 1400 prototype.
You can check out the livestream below when it goes live at 8 p.m. EST on Nov. 19 and Nov. 20.
