The Reviews Keep Coming In
While the SEMA Show is a trade event that is not open to the general public, thousands of journalists from around the world participate in it and serve as the eyes and ears for enthusiasts. These reporters work around the clock to scour the SEMA Show floor in search of standout products to share with their readers and viewers. Even if you were able to attend the 2014 SEMA Show, these publications are helpful in highlighting products that you may have missed. After all, there were more than 2,300 exhibitors and more than 1 million sq. ft. to cover. Take a look at some of the magazines that offered comprehensive coverage that you will not want to miss.
The editors from diesel-enthusiast publication Diesel Power went to the SEMA Show in search of the best custom vehicles as well as the most innovative new products. This issue provides readers with eight pages of vehicle photography alone. In addition, there is a review of the best new products from the Show, including U-Bar headlamps from AnzoUSA, a power step from AMP Research and colored wheels (a key trend at this year’s Show) from American Force.
Truck-enthusiast consumer magazine Truck Trend proclaimed the 2014 SEMA Show “larger than life” in the headline of its Show coverage. The magazine’s editors covered the entire Las Vegas Convention Center in search of the trucks that would grab their readers’ attention. In addition, the editors were on hand for SEMA’s first-ever SEMA Ignited.
Auto-enthusiast magazine Maximum Drive noted that this year’s hot topic for its readership was the Ford Mustang, which features prominently in the magazine’s coverage. Also included in its coverage of the 2014 SEMA Show were eight pages of new products, including specialized air-intake manifolds, torque converters and hydraulic ride-height systems—just a few of the wide variety of new products on display.
The editors of Truckin’ magazine dubbed their April issue “The SEMA Issue,” providing their readership with information about their selections for the 20 best new products from the SEMA Show. The list included a Ford F-100 brake system from Bear Brakes, an EFI digital dash from Holley Performance Products and a rear replacement bumper from N-Fab. Truckin’ also attended the SEMA Ignited event and offered its readers a glimpse of the custom trucks on hand.
