This customised Ford EcoSport by Tucci Designs will be showcased at 2018 SEMA Show that will run from October 30 to November 2
The 2018 edition of the popular SEMA Show will be conducted between October 30 and November 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The top-notch automotive specialty products trade fair is no stranger to drawing huge crowd along with showcasing talents of the industry’s hot prospects and the highlighting customised lineup of vehicles from OEMs and private tuners.
Last year, the SEMA Show drew over 70,000 buyers from domestic and international arena and the New Products Showcase featured nearly 3,000 brand new parts, tools and components. Keen to make a huge impact, the American automakers will have a grand display of their modified vehicles across the range and just last week, Ford revealed five custom Mustangs exclusively for SEMA.
The Dearborn-based company has devised an aggressive future strategy brimmed with SUVs and crossovers, as it slowly abandons its fleet of sedans and streamlines operation for narrowed production costs. The second-largest US car brand has previewed modded EcoSport, Expedition, Edge and Explorer ahead of the trade show.
All of them comes with exterior modifications like bigger size wheels, sporty body kit, lowered suspension and custom interior among other changes. The Tucci Designs Big Adventures EcoSport will have loads of attention as it has been characterised as a hardcore off-roader. You do get the feel of it being an adventure companion on extreme outdoor trips.
The modded Ford EcoSport comes equipped with beefier wheel arches, 16-inch wheels wrapped in wider tyres, tubular bumpers up front and rear, bicycle rack, auxiliary lights, Warn winch, etc. Unlike the other tuned crossovers, the EcoSport does not have huge performance upgrades. It gains K&N air filter and Ford’s own performance exhaust system.
Ford’s stock hits a nine year low due to the raising tensions in US tariffs and trade practices and to restore confidence among dealers, CEO Jim Hackett organised a meeting in Las Vegas with members of dealer network and other top honchos. The company seems to have showcased new versions of Ranger pickup truck and off-road UVs as well and confirmed that three-fourth of its North American range will be refreshed over the next couple of years.
