Each year at the SEMA show vehicles of the year are chosen in several categories. These cars are supposed to represent the best business opportunities for the aftermarket in five different categories. The categories include the Car of the Year, Truck of the Year, 4×4/SUV of the Year, Sport Compact of the Year, and Powersports Vehicle of the Year.
The results are in for 2019, and the winner for SEMA Car of the Year was the Ford Mustang. The aftermarket opportunities for Ford Mustang owners are legion and range from mild to wild. The Truck of the Year honors went to the Chevy Silverado. The 4×4/SUV of the Year win went to the Jeep Wrangler. SEMA Sport Compact of the Year was the Audi RS 3. Rounding out the winners was the Polaris RZR for Powersports Vehicle of the Year.
SEMA has bragged that the exhibitors at the show offer the newest and most innovative aftermarket products that are available. The aftermarket industry for vehicles is worth $45 billion, according to SEMA. Car and truck fans love SEMA for the cool aftermarket rides that turn up at the show each year. Some of the cool vehicles that have launched at SEMA 2019 include the Shelby Dragon Snake and Super Snake Sport F-150 truck.
