The top trending vehicle models in four categories were announced today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This year’s SEMA Award for the Hottest Car was awarded to Ford Mustang, the Ford Focus took the Hottest Sport Compact honors, the Ford F-Series was named Hottest Truck and the Jeep Wrangler received the Hottest 4×4-SUV award.
“The SEMA Show is an event where the newest and most innovative aftermarket products are seen first,” said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. “And the SEMA Award celebrates the industry’s unique ability to identify and set the trends that influence consumers worldwide.”
The SEMA Award recognizes vehicle models that specialty-equipment manufacturers believe are the best platforms for accessorization and showcase the year’s coolest products. It also underscores the cooperative relationship between the automakers and SEMA-member companies.
“The SEMA Award helps guide consumers toward the hottest-trending and most accessory friendly vehicles on the market,” added Kersting. “Our SEMA Show exhibitors are industry visionaries who determine the winners of the SEMA Award. By counting the vehicles displayed in exhibitor booths, we can see which vehicle models SEMA exhibitors believe will resonate with the enthusiast community.”
The 2015 SEMA Show features more than 2,400 exhibiting companies that manufacture thousands of products designed to improve performance, safety and convenience, as well as those that enhance appearance and comfort. While products are available for every make and model, exhibitors are investing more in the Ford Mustang, Ford Focus, Ford F-Series and Jeep Wrangler than any other vehicles. Consumers, therefore, can expect to find great specialty products for accessorizing these vehicles.
