A.R.E. 2018 Modern Adventurer Ford F-150 Project Truck





MASSILLON, Ohio – Sleek design meets the ultimate in functionality with A.R.E. Accessories’ latest project truck, Modern Adventurer – a custom 2018 Ford F-150 4x4 XLT Super Crew designed with the weekend warrior in mind. Modern Adventurer will debut in the Ford Motor Co. booth #22200 during this week’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
“Our goal is for adventure seekers to use this truck build as inspiration for their own quest-seeking lifestyles,” said Bryan Mutchler, marketing manager, A.R.E. Accessories. “From its roof-top tent and truck-bed storage to exterior LED lighting that’s controlled by an app on the iPad, the Modern Adventurer project truck highlights technology and innovation while still being efficient in the outdoors. This is an ideal truck for adventure seekers to remain protected from the elements while hitting the trails and exploring nature.”
Modern Adventurer, which boasts Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission, showcases several yet-to-be-released A.R.E. products. The new A.R.E. Z Revo truck cap has a frameless tailgate contoured rear door and all-glass urethane frameless side windows, plus a new OneMotionTM handle design that allows users to easily open the door one-handed. The Z Revo cap’s modern style complements the truck’s bold red and black exterior. To enhance functionality and innovation, A.R.E.’s Rival interior LED rope lighting features ActiveTiltTM, an automatic on/off technology that turns lights on when the truck cap door opens and off when door closes.
The A.R.E. Ascend Roof Basket tops the truck to increase load capacity while maintaining a low profile and rugged look. Available in 31” and 41” sizes, the roof basket is aluminum with black textured powder coat.
Trent Van Arsdalen, owner of Trent’s Trick Upholstery, worked with A.R.E. to transform Modern Adventurer from concept to the ultimate adventure-seeker.
