The updated F-150, as reported last week when we posted photos of a prototype on the streets, features a new front and rear styling, advanced technologies, and it will include a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 turbo diesel and updated V6 and V8 gas engines.

DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 4, 2017
– Ford, America’s truck leader, is celebrating a major milestone as F-Series now reigns as the top-selling truck in the country for 40 consecutive years and best-selling vehicle for 35 years.

Ford has now sold more than 26 million F-Series trucks since January 1977. Think of it like this: That many trucks could circle the globe more than three times, or, lined up bumper-to-bumper, would span 90,000-plus miles.

– Mickey Thompson was presented with a Project Excellence Award by Ford Motor Company at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in recognition of its custom 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty built by Mike Duval of X-Treme Toyz.   

Although this custom Dodge Ram was at Off-Road Expo, we got a much better look at it in the Nitto booth.

You couldn’t walk more than 5 feet at this year’s SEMA Show without seeing or bumping into a truck. Trucks greeted SEMA Show attendees at hall entrances, and the edges of each side of the convention center, and they were pretty much everywhere you looked.

We already highlight some of the bro-dozers at this year’s show in the 7 Trucks That Will Never See Dirt, but this was another batch of rigs that caught our eye for one reason or another. Check out these cool trucks we captured at this year’s show.

Skyjacker and Matchbox partnered on a cool build for this year’s SEMA Show using the new Ford Super Duty F350 as the platform for this Police-inspired tactical truck. Although there’s only one of these trucks currently in existence, Matchbox has actually created a replica version of the 4×4 to commemorate the build.

For the automotive aftermarket, SEMA is all about showing off the latest and greatest gear, and more often than not that comes in the form of vehicle builds around the Las Vegas Convention Center. There’s everything from mild to wild, but there’s also plenty of trucks and SUVs that go so far over the top that they reach a level of absurdity.

That leads us to this collection of trucks. Although fitted with suspension lifts and aftermarket wheels, in spite of the aggressive tires these trucks and Jeeps at the 2016 SEMA Show will live their lives on asphalt and never see the dirt.
