The International Vehicle Measuring Session Tour's First Stop: The SEMA Garage

By Linda Spencer

The first stop of the 2015 SEMA International Measuring Session Tour will be the SEMA Garage, February 17–20, and will include vehicles not sold currently sold in the United States, such as the ’14 Mitsubishi L200.

SEMA has announced a U.S. tour of four international aftermarket accessory-friendly vehicles—’12 Toyota HiLux, ’13 Ford Ranger T6, ’14 UAZ Hunter and ’14 Mitsubishi L200. Following a measuring session in the SEMA Garage, February 19–20, the vehicles will be available April 7–8 in Plymouth, Michigan, at the site of SEMA-member Roush and April 21–22 in Bartlett, Tennessee, courtesy of Hypertech. The tour will conclude with a fourth measuring session back at the SEMA Garage, May 18–22.

Through a special partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce, SEMA imported these globally popular vehicles in order to help SEMA-member manufacturers create export-ready products. The vehicles are in the United States under a special a three-year vehicle waiver. This tour will be the last chance to measure the HiLux before it is exported in early June, and the Ranger five months later. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to measure these popular global trucks!
