Ford Performance Teases New Model Ahead of SEMA Show – Video

  • New teaser video shows off high-performance Ford coming to SEMA show
  • Though it’s hard to say for sure, we think the new model will be a Mustang drag racer
  • Earlier Mustang drag racer models have featured a full roll cage and many other extras

The Ford Performance team has officially revealed a teaser video showing a new model it plans to launch next month at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

The video is only 15 seconds long, and it doesn’t fully show the vehicle in question, but we have an idea of what might be coming. That’s partially due to the video’s content, which shows a drag strip and features a lot of high-performance engine noise, and partially due to previous SEMA shows, where Ford has routinely shown high-performance versions of its models.

What is this mysterious new Ford? We suspect the automaker will show off a high-performance, drag strip-ready version of the new Mustang at this year’s SEMA show. Similar to the 2010 Mustang Cobra Jet released at the SEMA show in 2009, the latest drag-ready Mustang would likely offer a wide range of race-oriented improvements, from a factory roll cage to revised suspension and a few engine options.

Of course, we could be wrong. The automaker may also be rolling out a high-performance version of its upcoming F-150 Raptor pickup truck, which it once did at a previous SEMA show. They could even show a sporty version of the upcoming GT supercar, which is slated to go on sale sometime next year.

Regardless of what Ford Performance shows at SEMA, however, the automaker’s teaser video leaves us certain of one thing: it’s going to be fast.

What it means to you: If you’re a fan of high-performance Fords, you’ll only have to wait a few more weeks to see what the brand has been cooking up for the SEMA show.
