In preparation for this year's SEMA show, Ford has been focusing first and foremost on its trucks and crossovers. We've already seen previews of what it has in store for the Edge and Explorer. Now the Blue Oval automaker is giving us a taste of a slew of seven customized F-150 pickups it's preparing for the Vegas tuner expo.

At the top of the list is a two-tone black and blue F-150 with the EcoSport engine and, intriguingly, a six-speed manual. MRT has given the truck a full workover, from remapping the turbo boost to fitting a full roll cage with race seats and five-point harnesses. Leer took a very different approach with the Outdoorsman edition, based on a SuperCrew with a matching covered bed, gloss blue paint, lifted suspension, and knobby off-road tires. Roush naturally went the on-road performance route with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 pumping out 650 horsepower, with a dropped suspension and dramatic red, white and black livery.

CGS went "glamorous" with silver paint and red accents. Airdesign USA did up its own sort of Raptor geared for off-road performance (albeit without substantial performance upgrades). Forgiato meanwhile supercharged the V8 like Galpin did but with a rugged approach like Airdesign's. And last but most definitely not least is the Gulf-style livery applied by Galpin Auto Sports to its widebody SuperCrew.

Each most definitely has its own character, and goes to show just how many directions owners and aftermarket modifiers can go with America's best-selling vehicle. Scope 'em each out in the image gallery above and the video and press release below.

The Toughest, Smartest and Most Capable F-150 Ever Brings An Arsenal to #FordSEMA

From high-performance street trucks to off-road adventure rigs, seven custom versions of the 2016 Ford F-150 – the smartest, toughest, most capable F-150 ever – are headed to this year's Specialty Equipment Market Association tradeshow in Las Vegas.

F-150 is part of Ford F-Series, America's best-selling vehicle for 33 years and America's best-selling truck for 38 years. F-Series Trucks have won SEMA's "Hottest Truck" Award more than any other truck, proof of their popularity also with enthusiasts of all types.

Ford continues its unrivaled support of the SEMA show this year with the largest OEM stand and over 50 vehicles on display. A step beyond display vehicles, Ford Out Front also offers attendees a unique experience of watching or riding in one of our performance car or trucks on a closed course.

Return of the Clutch: MRT Brings a Knockout EcoBoost F-150 to SEMA Boasting a Stick Shift and Wicked Street Styling

MRT took a different approach to building a fast F-150, utilizing the proven 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine and pairing it with a Tremec Magnum 6-Speed manual transmission. This F-150 features many go-fast bits from the large capacity intercooler and refined boost mapping for the turbos to safety features like a roll cage and race seats with 5-point harnesses. To round out their unique approach to the F-150 an attractive two-tone paint set up was used with a yellow pinstripe to help make this truck really pop even when standing still.
