We’re counting down the days until the start of this year’s SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas, where the world’s leading aftermarket parts suppliers and tuning houses congregate under one roof in early November to show off their wares. As is custom, all three major Detroit automakers ought to be making appearances, and Ford is letting out a handful of details regarding what concepts we can expect to see from the Blue Oval.
One such concept vehicle is the Ford Edge Sport “Tjin Edition.” Pictured above, this Ford Edge concept’s color palette is hard not to notice. The vibrant-while-unoffensive light blue body is violently punctuated by splashes of a minty, electric teal color on the brake calipers and side mirrors. A third, entirely different blue shade adorns the wheel rims.
The color palette likely won’t please everyone, but the Ford Edge Tjin Edition concept boasts plenty of functional upgrades much harder to dismiss as tactless. A unique front-mounted intercooler peaks out from behind the front fascia, while a Motiv downpipe and MagnaFlow performance exhaust lend the powerplant still more grunt. The aforementioned brakes are supplied by Baer, and the chassis has been fitted with an Air Lift suspension to completely change the ride characteristics of the SUV. Things have been fettled with on the inside, as well, with a custom Alea Leather CT interior and Scosche Magic Mounts.
It will be several weeks yet before SEMA begins, and we can provide you with a more thorough exploration of the 2016 Ford Edge Sport Tjin Edition concept. Until then, stay tuned.
