SEMA Award reveals show’s top four trending ‘Hottest’ vehicles
Las Vegas—This year’s SEMA Award for the top trending vehicle models in four categories was announced Tuesday, November 3, at the SEMA Show. The Ford Mustang was named Hottest Car, the Ford Focus took the Hottest Sport Compact honors, the Ford F-Series won Hottest Truck and the Jeep Wrangler received the Hottest 4x4-SUV award.
“Traditionally, the SEMA Show is where the newest and most innovative specialty-equipment products are seen first,” said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. “The SEMA Award celebrates the industry’s unique ability to identify the vehicles and trends that will excite both the aftermarket and automotive consumers worldwide in the coming year.” The SEMA Award recognizes vehicle models that specialty-equipment manufacturers believe are the best platforms for accessorization and that showcase the year’s coolest products. It also underscores the cooperative relationship between the automakers and SEMA-member companies.
“For five years now, the SEMA Award has helped guide consumers toward the hottest-trending and most accessory-friendly vehicles on the market,” added Kersting. “Our Show exhibitors are industry visionaries who determine the winners, with each booth space counting as a “ballot,” and the vehicles they choose to showcase in their spaces counting as votes. The most prominent models in each category earn the award.”
