After 2011 and the Stubby project, the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas presented the 2018 Ford F-250 BDS Project SD126. Based is the 2017 Ford F-250 4×4 Super Duty XLT, while the short bed resembles the 2017 Raptor Super Duty. In addition to really a lot of upgrading from the inside, inside and in the drive systems, one of the main differences is a significantly shorter wheelbase. In any case, a serious task was set up for the competing GM Company.
In addition to the blacked-out grille, it has a body-color Rogue Racing off-road steel front and rear bumpers, as well as smoked headlights. The front bumper has a 40-inch LED light bar, four LED light pods and factory tow hooks, while the rear bumper also has LED light pods. Only PPG bright orange metallic paint is available, and noticeable are fiberglass bulging fenders and bedsides. Recon smoked cab has 1-inch and three-quarter roll bar. Also, built are black racing seats with orange trim, telescopic steering wheel and HVAC vents. The center console is a 12-inch subwoofer with Magellan eXplorist TRX7 off-road GPS system.
The external dimensions will be approximate to the standard model. It is only known that the wheelbase will be 126 inch (3200 mm). Placed at the 20-inch Stazworks Cheyenne 8 wheels with 42-inch BFGoodrich Baja TA KR tires. There is only a Regular Cab with two doors. Unfortunately, it is possible to accommodate only two passengers. Also, the weight, payload and towing capacity are not known.
The BDS Project 126 will have a Ford Power Stroke 6.7-liter V-8 turbodiesel engine. The production of this engine is 440 hp and 925 lb-ft (1254 Nm) of torque.
