The SEMA Award: Hottest Car. Hottest Truck. Hottest 4x4-SUV

Every year there are a handful of vehicles that become the stars of the SEMA Show. To celebrate these standouts, SEMA officials will announce three SEMA Awards, Hottest Car, Hottest Truck and Hottest 4x4-SUV for the very first time ever.

Background: Every year there are a handful of vehicles that become the stars of the SEMA Show. To celebrate these standouts, SEMA officials will announce three SEMA Awards, Hottest Car, Hottest Truck and Hottest 4x4-SUV for the very first time ever.

Contender Criteria: The vehicle must be new or significantly redesigned, involved in one or more SEMA OEM programs, and incorporate a new technology. SEMA officials gathered a panel of industry experts who have looked at several indicators of what SEMA Show exhibitors are eyeing as the trend-leading vehicles this year through Show pre-registrations of feature vehicles, participation levels in the prior year’s SEMA vehicle Measuring Sessions, design data downloads from our SEMA Technology Transfer program and magazine covers of industry project vehicles to determine a contenders list.

What do you think will be the "hottest" truck, 4x4, and car at this year's show?
