The votes are tallied and the results are in, and Ford is sweeping up awards at this year's SEMA. After adding up thousands of votes cast by the exhibiting manufacturers present at the show, the Specialty Equipment Market Association presented Ford with top prizes for the hottest coupe (Ford Mustang), the hottest hatch (Ford Focus), and the hottest truck (Ford F-Series). They joined the Jeep Wrangler (hottest SUV) and Dodge Charger (hottest sedan) on the podium at an exclusive celebratory breakfast the second day of the show. According to a report by Carscoops.com, the range of awards are "designed to 'guide consumers toward the hottest-trending and most accessory friendly vehicles on the market.'"

An air of deja vu accompanied the award ceremony, given that last year's event also crowned the Mustang, F-Series and Focus with the hottest car, hottest truck and hottest sport compact awards, respectively. The back-to-back prizes are impressive, but not surprising: the Mustang's scooped up awards for the past five years, and the F-Series has stolen the show in six out of the past seven years. Additionally, 2016 marks the second year in a row that one automaker reported three out of the five top awards.
