Ford Trucks Prepped for Dirt or Speed at 2013 SEMA Show

Algae-Powered Super Duty and 650-HP F-150

When Ford releases a spec sheet with items like a 125-gallon fuel capacity, the ability to run on algae-based biodiesel, and a 9-inch suspension lift kit, then there's a good chance that vehicle is headed to the 2013 SEMA auto show. Those aforementioned specs belong to the Ford F-350 modified by EcoTrek, which is just one of six F-Series trucks headed to Las Vegas next week.

With a 50-gallon tank under its bed and a removable 75-gallon tank in the bed, the Ford F-350 modified by EcoTrek has an estimated range of 1800 miles. The 6.7-liter V-8 can run on normal diesel, biodiesel, and even algae-based biodiesel. Treks off the grid are more than feasible thanks to a rooftop shelter, refrigerator, stoves, solar panels, and plenty of storage for supplies.

Other mod includes a MagnaFlow exhaust system, Carli Suspension upgrades, and 22-inch wheels from Americian Force Wheels. Interior comfort gets a boost with added sound deadening material and hexagon-quilted upholstery.

As the name suggests, this F-150 is all about the suspension. In addition to a six-inch lift kit, the suspension company added beefy BFGoodrich Tires, lockable storage by TruckVault, and upgraded bumpers by Fab Fours Inc.

Rated at 650 hp, this F-150 modified by Fatal Clothing gets its extra power from a Whipple Industries twin-screw supercharger and a CGS Motorsports performance exhaust system. Its slammed stance is punctuated by 24-inch DUB wheels, while the exterior is finished in black and white paint with neon accents and decals. The interior features custom-painted panels and leather seats.
