Ford Previews SEMA Show Project Vehicles
The Bronco brand will make its live debut at the annual SEMA Show, Nov. 2-5 in Las Vegas, showcasing a lineup of personalized two- and four-door Bronco and Bronco Sport SUVs, Ford announced.
Ford will show off four custom Broncos and two Bronco Sport SUVs at the Ford booth (#22200), the automaker said. Each features examples from the growing list of Genuine Ford Parts, Ford Licensed Accessories and Ford Performance Parts – plus many more aftermarket parts and custom fabricated applications.
“Bronco and Bronco Sport customers love parts and accessories that emphasize performance and off-road lifestyle, so we worked closely with Bronco design and vehicle engineering to deliver the products to match their individual lifestyle,” said Eric Cin, Ford global director, vehicle personalization, accessories and licensing. “Since the reveal last year, we’ve expanded the line to more than 350 Bronco and Bronco Sport parts and accessories and growing.”
