AND 4x4-SUV ANNOUNCED AT THE 2012 SEMA SHOW
-- Ford Mustang, Scion FR-S, Ford

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Oct. 30, 2012) - This year's SEMA Award for the
top trending vehicle models in four categories were announced today at the SEMA
Show in Las Vegas. The Ford Mustang was named Hottest Car, the Scion FR-S took
the Hottest Sport Compact honors, the Ford F-Series won Hottest Truck and the
Jeep Wrangler received the Hottest 4x4-SUV award.
Show has always been about innovative products and trends," said Chris
Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. "The SEMA Award amplifies the industry's special
ability to identify and set trends that consumers follow."
Award recognizes vehicle models that specialty-equipment manufacturers believe
are the best platforms for accessorization and that showcase the year's coolest
products. It also underscores the cooperative relationship between the
automakers and SEMA-member companies.
"The SEMA Award helps guide consumers toward the hottest-trending
and most accessory friendly vehicles on the market," added Kersting. "Our SEMA
Show exhibitors are industry visionaries who determine the winners of the SEMA
Award based on the vehicles they showcase in their booths. Each booth vehicle represents
a ‘vote' and the most prominent models in each category are the winners."
The 2012 SEMA Show features more than 2,000 exhibiting companies that manufacture
thousands of products designed to improve performance, safety and convenience,
as well as those that enhance appearance and comfort. While products are
available for every make and model, exhibitors are investing more in the Ford
Mustang, Scion FR-S, Ford F-Series, and Jeep Wrangler than any other vehicles.
Consumers, therefore, can expect to find great specialty products for
accessorizing these vehicles.
