Just the Facts:
  • Three modified 2013 Ford Super Duty trucks are headed for the 2013 SEMA Show.
  • The trio includes an off-road beast, a clean highway cruiser and a stylish high roller.
  • Ford is showcasing 57 vehicles at the aftermarket event, including the Focus, Fusion and Transit Connect.

DEARBORN, Michigan — Three project 2013 Ford Super Duty trucks are bound for the 2013 SEMA Show.

The first truck is called the "High Roller" and features an unexpected look of luxury and grit. Cars by Kris started with a 6.7-liter turbodiesel 2013 Ford F-350 Super Duty and installed a side-exit Magnaflow exhaust, intake and water-methanol injection system. A Carli suspension and 22-inch wheels, along with a custom interior and gold exterior accents, enhance the look of the beastly diesel pickup.

The 2013 Ford F-350 by EcoTrek takes care of the obligatory off-road modifications with a fuel-efficiency twist. EcoTrek estimates a range of up to 1,800 miles on the truck's 50-gallon fuel tank that can be filled with diesel, biodiesel or algae-based biodiesel (or any combination of the three).

A 9-inch lift kit, aftermarket suspension and 20-inch wheels with off-road tires will tackle any rugged landscape, while a rooftop shelter, refrigerator, stove, flexible solar panels and lockable storage cabinets would make the pickup more comfortable for an outdoor overnighter.

Hulst Customs upgraded a 2013 Ford F-250 with the 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine into a powerful cruising truck with clean styling. Nicknamed the "Striker," the truck features an upgraded exhaust, water-methanol injection system, 22-inch wheels, two-tone leather interior and a unique door graphic that mimics the look of dirt being kicked up from the front wheels.

Edmunds says: Ford hopes to make a heavy-duty splash at SEMA with these upgraded workhorses.
