SEMA is right around the corner, so Ford has decided to preview some of the goodies it will have on display in Las Vegas.

First up, it’s the beefy 2017 Fusion Sport Ballistic concept by Webasto Thermo and Comfort North America equipped with a series of Kevlar components and an H&R Performance suspension bringing the V6-powered midsize sedan closer the road. It also has a JMS PedalMAX throttle enhancer for better acceleration along with upgraded brakes to efficiently stop those new 20-inch wheels shod in Toyo tires. A heat extractor hood lets the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine breath better, while on the inside there’s a Katzkin custom leather and suede upholstery and white metallic accents to spice things up.

Legacy Innovations’ Fusion Sport has an entirely different look with a BASF blue livery and new front and rear spoiler lips. Extended side skirts and a carbon fiber hood are also part of the package, as is the fresh 20-inch set of bronze wheels with 245/35/20 tires. On the performance front, the sports sedan has been fitted with a K&N cold air kit and a MagnaFlow exhaust providing a more powerful soundtrack for the six-cylinder engine.

Moving on to the Mustang lineup, the 2017 GT concept by VMP Performance packs a massive 851 horsepower and 703 pound-feet of torque thanks to a TVS supercharger for the V8 engine. A set of Ford Performance Brembo brakes has been added to match the extra punch delivered by the 5.0-liter unit. This patriotic ‘Stang has received an Avalanche paint with a military theme applied onto a new body kit featuring a custom hood with active air extractors. It also has side exhaust tips and a matte black look for the aftermarket 19-inch alloys. The interior is home to a GT350R-sourced steering wheel and a pair of Recaro seats with a five-point safety harness system.

A much flashier Mustang is this Pearl Candy Orange concept using a carbon fiber body kit and riding on 20-inch, one-piece monoblock wheels. The EcoBoost 2.3-liter engine features an upgraded intercooler and comes with a twin-bottle NX Nitrous Express setup for extra temporary performance. As one would expect from a SEMA car, the interior has also been heavily modified and it now has a Katzkin leather upholstery with custom stitching, an upgraded Alpine sound system, and an amplifier.

The most promising Mustang is this GT concept featuring a sleeker design thanks to the SpeedKore carbon fiber body kit complemented by HRE’s 20-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Not only does it look pretty cool, but it’s also a lot more powerful than the GT version upon which it’s based. The 5.0-liter V8 is no longer naturally aspirated as it has received a Whipple supercharger boosting output to a healthy 825 hp.

Another pony car with a supercharger would have to be MRT’s Mustang Fastback Sport Touring, but this one has the smaller 2.3-liter engine and uses a Vortech supercharger. It adopts a menacing two-tone exterior finish for the carbon fiber body and sits 20-inch bronze wheels from HB Engineering. A coilover suspension provided by BC Racing and a Baer braking system round off the mechanical upgrades, while on the inside the rear seats have been deleted and the front ones are a Recaro set made from carbon fiber to further shave off weight.

CJ Pony Parts will be in Las Vegas this year to show off its own 2017 Mustang concept with the EcoBoost mill and a plethora of Ford Performance bits and pieces. The car will have a Stealth Gray paint combined with a bunch of Acid Green accents to make it an eye-grabber. Like the previous Mustang, this one too lacks the rear seats on the inside where there’s now a Ford Performance shift knob.

Last but certainly not least, Revology Cars will be at SEMA early next month with an officially licensed reproduction concept based on the 1966 Shelby GT350. Featuring a steel unibody, the showcar is propelled by a Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine with 435 hp channeled to the road via a close-ratio, six-speed manual gearbox. It’s a reinterpretation of a classic, but the car has received some high-tech features such as LED lights, an upgraded suspension from Total Cost Involved, and beefier Wilwood brakes. The cabin has also been subjected to a few changes, with the most important ones being the heated and ventilated seats, an electronic gauge cluster, and other niceties such as air conditioning and a Pioneer infotainment system.

All these Mustangs and Fusion Sports will be on display at SEMA between November 1 and 4 and will share the spotlight with a quartet of modified F-150s.
