Jeep wins ‘hottest SUV’ again

by Chris Vander Doelen on

The exhibitors at 2017 SEMA have voted on the five hottest vehicles in the aftermarket industry and Jeep Wrangler has won its category again for the fourth year in a row.

The Wrangler is “trending” as being the most accessory-friendly SUV on the market, and the one embraced by the most consumers and aftermarket product manufacturers, according to the Specialty Equipment Market Association.

That was the only win for a Fiat Chrysler vehicle in the 2017 SEMA show, which features 2,400 exhibitors who produce or sell performance, safety and convenience products for the automotive sphere.

Ford and GM split the four wins in the other categories, as chosen by the exhibitors at the influential week-long SEMA show, which is closed to the public. Ford F-Series is hottest truck, Ford Focus the hottest hatch. Chevrolet Camaro won hottest Coupe and Cadillac CTS-V won hottest sedan.

As brought to you first by Allpar yesterday, Mopar alone is producing 200 aftermarket products for the next-gen Jeep Wrangler JL, which should reach showrooms in December.
