The 2014 SEMA Show will take place from November 4-7 in Las Vegas, and Ford will hit the floor with a number of spectacular Mustang and F-150 models.

While several Mustangs will feature the powerful 5.0L V8 engine, Ford plans to turn the spotlight on its all-new 2.3L EcoBoost generating 310 horsepower. Various tuners will be on hand with high-powered versions of the this turbo four-cylinder.

Petty’s Garage will be bringing a Mustang with a purpose -- a Roush supercharged V8 model wearing Richard Petty’s famous blue paint and a discrete No. 43, Petty’s car number in his NASCAR days. The car will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson. 

Meanwhile, Galpin Auto Sports will be celebrating 50 years of Mustang with a golden anniversary car featuring restyled front and rear fascia with a gold motif. The car wears metallic gold-flecked black paint and gold badges, and features interior trim work and special wheel calipers. To top it all off, a gold powder-coated Whipple supercharger helps the 5.0L V8 develop 725 horsepower.

Not to be outdone, the Ford F-150 will vie for a fifth consecutive “Hottest Truck” award at the show. Among the many customized units on hand will be the Deegan 38 project (built with the collaboration of Ford Racing’s Brian Deegan) and a Ford F-150 that was purpose-built by Formula DRIFT superstar Vaughn Gittin Jr. (with Recaro seats and all).
