Trucks and 4x4s of SEMA 2018

Each year, the SEMA Show creates a nice, clean split of insane, otherworldly vehicles. We looked at the 2018 cars of the show last week, and this week we dive into the trucks, utility vehicles, vans and basically anything that looks big, boxy and tough. That group includes the usual mile-high semi-monster trucks and gaudy Wranglers along with some different twists, like Iceland-ready adventure vans, UTV/pickup truck half-and-halfs, and super-sized classic military jeeps.

The Ford Ranger shows its range

Ford began production of the all-new Ranger about a week before SEMA, so it’s no surprise that a big part of its always-large presence at the show was dedicated to its new-generation mid-size truck. It showed seven Ranger concepts in all, pulling inspiration from everything from backcountry camping, to Baja pre-running, to video games.

BDS Suspension and Ford created the Project Ranger X as an ultimate backcountry adventurer

Our favorite Ranger of the bunch – the Project Ranger X – is designed to work, play and explore in the backcountry. Above its 6-in (152 mm) BDS Suspension-lifted chassis, the modded pickup has a custom long-bed conversion topped by a Knapheide utility box with custom rack for carrying tools, supplies and recovery gear. That system doesn’t fill the entire bed with cabinets, leaving room for the dirt bike that Ford slid in for effect. Other upgrades include LED off-road lighting, a WARN front bumper with winch, a Dometic electric cooler and underbody skid plates.
