SEMA just announced its Design Awards for this year's show. The Design Awards are designed to acknowledge the most accessory friendly vehicles for 2007. There were four categories this year as Hybrids joined Cars, Pickups, and SUVs as eligible segments. Not necessarily the BEST designed vehicles in each class, this being SEMA the focus is on how they can be customized. So recipients might not be what everybody would immediately think of when Best and Design are mentioned together. This year's winners were the Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang, the '07 Toyota Tundra, the 4-door Jeep Wrangler, and the Chevy Silverado Hybrid. And in the People's Choice category, which is just labeled Car, the Honda Civic took the honors.

Follow the jump for the other winners.
Accepting the awards were:



Bob Kern, GM's SEMA relations consultant for marketing services



Mustang Program Manager and Chief Engineer Paul Randall from Ford



Ernest Bastien, vice president of vehicle operations at Toyota



Ralph Gilles, Director – Exterior/Interior Product Design and Specialty Vehicles DaimlerChrysler Corporation
