Ford vehicles also won three of the hottest awards at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. The Ford Mustang won the Hottest Car award. Seriously though, we already knew it’s the hottest car in America! The Ford Focus took home the award for Hottest Sport-Compact vehicle. The F-Series was named Hottest Truck. These coveted awards recognize the most popular vehicles the organization’s members feature in their displays at the week-long show. This means that more Mustang, Focus and F-Series vehicles were on display than any other car or truck at the show. The Focus is a first-time winner. The Mustang and F-Series Truck each have won multiple awards at the show. These awards affirm the popularity of all three vehicles as favorite platforms for after-market accessorizing. This is also the the first time any original equipment manufacturer (OEM) has won three of the awards in the same year. In addition, Ford had the largest presence of any OEM at the 2015 SEMA show.
We’re certainly looking forward to the many more awards and honors Ford is sure to receive in the coming months. We know we have the most awesome cars! Keep checking back for more updates and news!
