With the annual SEMA Show in full swing, automakers from all over the world are pulling out all the stops to stand out from their competitors. That seems to have worked out for Ford, as the American brand took home the awards for "Hottest Car" and "Hottest Truck" at the show. The awards, which recognize the most popular vehicles at the SEMA Show, went to the Ford Mustang and the Ford F-Series, respectively.
This is the second year in a row the Ford Mustang was named the hottest car at SEMA, while it's the fourth consecutive year the F-Series has earned the honor. These vehicles are popular outside of the show as well, largely due to their attractive exterior, impressive vehicle maintenance and strong reputation.
"The SEMA Show has always been the annual event where the newest and most innovative products are seen first," said Chris J. Kersting, president of SEMA. "The SEMA Award celebrates the industry's unique ability to identify and set the trends that influence consumers worldwide."
Not all of the awards went to Ford. The Scion FR-S was named the Hottest Sport Compact and the Jeep Wrangler received the award for being the Hottest 4x4 SUV.
