It’s not a huge surprise to see the Ford Mustang and F-150 named as the hottest car and truck of SEMA, but seeing the Focus win the show’s hottest Sport-Compact of the show too means the Blue Oval has swept the hottest vehicles award this year.
This is the first time one automaker has won all three awards at SEMA, and while it’s surprising to see the Focus winning the sport compact category, the amount of customized vehicles on the show floor helps prove the point.
“Winning SEMA’s hottest vehicle awards for Mustang, Focus and F-Series is a great affirmation of the popularity of Ford vehicles with this trendsetting part of the market,” said Dave Pericak, director, Ford Performance, who accepted all of the honors at the annual awards breakfast. “We’re proud the aftermarket has embraced these three vehicles with as much enthusiasm as our customers invest to personalize their Mustang, Focus and F-Series.”
While the Mustang and F-150 have won the awards multiple times over the years, this is just the first time the Focus has won it.
