HOTTEST CAR, TRUCK AND 4x4-SUV ANNOUNCED AT THE 2010 SEMA SHOW

Chevrolet Camaro, Ford F-Series and Jeep Wrangler Named Winners
of the First Annual SEMA Award


LAS VEGAS (Nov. 2, 2010) – The inaugural SEMA Award was presented to the Chevrolet Camaro for the Hottest Car, the Ford F-Series for the Hottest Truck and the Jeep Wrangler for the Hottest 4x4-SUV, during the 2010 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

New car and truck buyers have a choice. The ability to accessorize a vehicle impacts the decision as to which vehicle to purchase. The SEMA Award identifies the most accessory-friendly new models.

Show organizers relied on the trend-setting influence of exhibitors to determine the winners.

"A booth space is a ballot, and the models these exhibitors have selected represent their vote," said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO.

The 2010 SEMA Show features more than 1,900 exhibiting companies. With more exhibitors showcasing their new products and styling trends on the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford F-Series and Jeep Wrangler, the SEMA Award winners are vehicles that consumers can confidently turn to for unlimited possibilities in personalization.

SEMA Show exhibitors manufacture thousands of products that improve performance, safety and convenience, as well as those that enhance appearance and comfort. While products are available for every make and model vehicle, exhibitors are investing more into the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford F-Series, and Jeep Wrangler than any other vehicle. Consumers, therefore, can expect to find more options for accessorizing these vehicles.

      No love for Hyundai or Kia!? Seriously, so far from what I've seen those are the only two automaker's and their vehicles that stick out of my mind.

        No love for junk at sema sorry.

      The Green Wrangler looks great.

      The rear spoiler on the Camaro is huge! You could eat Thanksgiving dinner on that thing. And I just noticed this, but why is that the reverse lights on the Camaro are just slapped on the bumper? They seem to be a bit out of place (after thought?).
        • 4 Years Ago
        I can't say that disagree. But there is one way that I can think that would have not completely ruined the look. Since there is a push to have amber colored turn signals, they could have created a small clear colored area at the bottom of each half the taillight. Put the amber colored turn signal on the outer half of the taillight. Then they could have put the reverse lamps on the inner half the of the taillight assembly. It may have not looked as good, but it wouldn't seem so much like an after thought and they would be proactive in the process.

        Where in the taillight housings could they be put without ruining the look of them?
        It is definitely a compromise but a good one in my opinion

      "A booth space is a ballot, and the models these exhibitors have selected represent their vote,"
      Say WHAT?!
      What kind of idiocy is that? How does the number any one car being at the show have to do with how "accessory-friendly" it is?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Can't imagine why Camaro is in this and Mustang and Challenger are not. Seems each has enough excitement surrounding them to share the spotlight. Did someone miss the Dodge Challenger V-10 Drag Pack? Now that's a REAL headline grabber that clearly deserves the nod over Camaro for performance fans, for sure!

      wow - so according to the Immortal's placard, Jeep is actually going to offer the portal axles as a Mopar upgrade?

      Can't imagine the price on that.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's what they've been saying since they debuted the imMortal at EJS in Moab earlier this year. I'll believe it when I see it in a Mopar catalog though.

        They've also been saying they're going to offer tube doors for XJs, a 4.7L stroker kit for XJ/YJ/TJs, and a CRD kit for TJs...

        Heck for 2 years now they've supposedly had a 4.5" long-arm suspension kit for JKs based off the Rubicon Express kit, but I've yet to see it anywhere but on one of these promo vehicles.

      A lowered dualie? more proof that sema is crud.

      I still can't fathom how people can put so much money into a product that immediately drops in price. no return on investment.

      and the 2011 mustang should have won. those camaro's look overly masculine and i see way too many painted akin to bumblebee. apparently that alone is 'accessory-friendly' enough.

      Is there a category for "least overstated" ?
