Ford has let loose four tuning houses on its new family car, creating four distinctly different styling and tuning concepts.
Tjin Edition, MRT Performance, 3dCarbon and Ice Nine Group have each worked their personalising and tuning magic.
The beige paintwork on Tjin Edition's Fusion is an interesting choice, but the rest of the job is suitably impressive.
The all-wheel drive machine packs a 2.0 litre EcoBoost with six-speed Select-Shift transmission. The engine is boosted by a Unique Fabrication turbo upgrade and a side exit Magnaflow exhaust.
The chassis is re-sprung with Pedders coil-overs while the standard brakes have been replaced with a Baer big brake set with 21 inch iForged wheels and Falken tyres bolted on.
Inside the seats are now upholstered in Katzkin leather and a Scosche audio system replaces the stock unit.
3dCarbon's effort is almost as subdued as Tjin Edition's, with a simple white paint job, AMG-style black roof and five-spoke alloys, with apparently little in the way of mechanical changes.
MRT's paint-job is a striking two-tone blue on black with matching blue anodised wheels. The car appears lower in the photos, with the wheels covering what look like bigger brakes, but MRT isn't saying much.
Ice Nine's front-wheel drive example is powered by the 1.6 litre EcoBoost and a six-speed manual.
The bright green Monster-branded Fusion is said by the tuner to have been inspired by the V8 Supercars.
The Fusion's Aston Martin-esque styling seems to cope very well at the hands of tuners and having their work displayed on Ford's sedan is a great advertisement for their wares.
Ford will also have a pair of Mustangs, one from High Gear and one called SEMA Mustang Build Powered by Women.
The 2012 SEMA Show kicks off at the Las Vegas Convention Centre on October 30.
