2015 SEMA Preview: Ford showcases new Edge Concepts, heading to this year’s show w/ video
In addition to the four Explorer Sport concepts due at this year’s SEMA show, Ford will also be showcasing three new Edge Concepts, done up individually by three separate firms.
You have the Vaccar Edge Sport Concept, the Ignition by Webasto Ford Edge Sport, and the Tjin Edition Ford Edge Sport, all of which are geared towards the active urban lifestyles.
The Tjin Edition Ford Edge Sport Concept is more performance oriented with a range of performance modifications, as well as a custom aftermarket air suspension system. The Ignition by Webasto Edge Sport also has performance in mind with a long list of engine enhancements, such as a custom ECU tune, a boost-controller for the EcoBoost V6, and even more aggressive chassis and suspension tuning for improved handling, thanks to add-ons like H&R Springs and Rotora Forged brakes.
The Vaccar Edge Sport is geared towards those’d rather cruise around town, similarly to the Tjin Edition. It too comes with an advanced air-suspension conversion kit and various other upgrades.
Check them all out after the jump to see their full list of modifications.
