Ford is bringing a whole mess of custom crossovers to SEMA this year. We saw a few modified EdgeSports last week, but now it’s time for its bigger brother to shine. To that end, Ford is showcasing a trio of Explorer Sport crossovers it’s preparing for the Vegas tuner expo.
The orange All Star Performance model is designed as “the ultimate road trip vehicle no matter the destination.” Mechanical upgrades include a new exhaust and intercooler, 2.5-inch lift kit, 29-inch ADV.1 wheels with Toyo off-road tires, and Baer brakes. It’s visually distinguished by its custom orange paint job, Thule roof basket, LED light bars front and rear, and an interior done up in suede and leather with a Sony audio system.
It’ll be joined by the rather dramatic Project Wanderlust, an Explorer Sport done up in burnt orange metallic and black. It’s got a carbon-fiber wide-body kit, custom lighting, a lowered suspension, and 15-inch brakes inside 24-inch wheels with Toyo Proxes tires. The engine’s been upgraded with numerous components, as has the interior.
The white model has seemingly been done up to resemble a Range Rover with a high-contrast two-tone paint job. It also rides on 24-inch wheels, clad this time with Pirelli Scorpion rubber and held up by an Eibach suspension package. The engine has been enhanced as well, but the bigger deal is the inside treatment that gets white-stitched black leather and suede trim on everything – along with aluminum pedals, special floor mats, tinted windows, custom lighting, upgraded infotainment system… the works.
Finally there’ll be an amped-up gold version with a lowered suspension, 20-inch modular wheels, red-line sidewall tires, a modified front end, Katzkin seats, and more. Read all about ’em in the press release below and check them out in the image gallery and video clip.
