Ford Mustang and F-Series Pickup Named "Hottest Car and Truck" of 2012 SEMA Show

  • SEMA Award honors the most popular vehicles chosen by specialty equipment manufacturers to be the best platforms for accessorizing and showcasing this year's hottest products, according to SEMA
  • Ford Mustang officially recognized as "Hottest Car" at the 2012 SEMA show for the first time – a testament to the strong popularity of Mustang with enthusiasts
  • Ford F-Series pickups officially recognized as "Hottest Truck" at SEMA for the third year in a row

Ford Mustang and F-Series pickups are officially the "Hottest Car and Truck" at the 2012 SEMA show in Las Vegas. The SEMA Award – presented today – recognizes the most popular vehicles the organization's members feature in their displays during the weeklong trade show.

Before this year's show opened, SEMA officials walked the floor of the giant aftermarket expo and counted the number of new 2012 and 2013 cars and trucks exhibited in booths. More Ford Mustangs and F-Series pickups are on display than any other car or truck – testament to the popularity and appeal of Ford vehicles.

"We're pleased and proud SEMA members agree with what our customers have been saying – that Ford Mustang and F-Series are the industry's hottest car and truck respectively," said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.

The launch of the new 2013 Mustang in the spring was strong, with Mustang sales this year up 18 percent over last year. Ford F-Series continues its 36-year record as the best-selling pickup in America, on pace to be the best-selling vehicle in America for 31 straight years.

Aftermarket exhibitors aren't the only ones featuring Ford Mustang and F-Series in their booths. Ford is also featuring more than 10 Mustangs and F-Series trucks, showing off the extreme versatility of these iconic Ford vehicles.

Several examples of custom Ford Mustangs and F-Series trucks at SEMA this year include:

The 420-horsepower 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8, already the most powerful production V8 in Mustang history, is amped to 750 horsepower courtesy of a Ford Racing Performance Parts intercooled supercharger kit and Whipple Industries 2.9 twin-screw supercharger.
