To highlight and recognize the global reach of vehicle personalization and customization, the 2015 SEMA Show marked the 12th time a prestigious global panel of 31 journalists from 19 countries was charged with selecting 10 products each from the New Products Showcase that they believed would resonate among consumers in their markets. The task was made more difficult in that this year’s New Products Showcase featured the largest number of new products ever—more than 2,700—covering the broad span of the industry from performance-street to Off-Road/4WD and street-rod/custom car products.
