Each year, SEMA (Specialty Equipment Marketing Association) awards the vehicles that specialty-equipment manufacturers believe are the best platforms for accessorization and for showcasing the year's coolest products.

This year's SEMA Awards, announced this week at the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas, went to: the Ford Mustang, which was named Hottest Car; the Scion FR-S, the Hottest Sport Compact; the Ford F-Series, the Hottest Truck; and the Jeep Wrangler, the Hottest 4x4-SUV.

The SEMA Award celebrates the industry's unique ability to identify and set the trends that influence consumers worldwide,"

said Chris J. Kersting, SEMA president and CEO.

"It also underscores the cooperative relationship between the automakers and SEMA-member companies.

"Now in its fourth year, 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. The booth space is a ballot and the vehicles they choose to showcase in their booths are a vote. The most prominent models in each category are the winners."

While products are available for every make and model, exhibitors are investing more in the Mustang, FR-S, F-Series, and Wrangler than any other vehicles. Consumers, therefore, can expect to find great specialty products for accessorizing these vehicles.
