After a few lean years for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, the 2011 SEMA Show is looking quite promising. Additional manufacturers are getting involved, more vendors are signing up and the number of cars and trucks on display is expected to grow.
Like the rest of the automotive market, the big OEMs are looking toward smaller cars to lead the way. With that in mind we expect to see plenty of attention on the latest compact entries like the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Focus and Hyundai Veloster. Newcomer Fiat is also sponsoring a design challenge for its new 500 hatchback.
It's not all about the small cars, though, as the usual suspects like the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Charger and Ford Mustang will be there in force as usual. And even though big trucks aren't quite as popular for the mass market, the Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram and Ford F-150 still have huge aftermarket support.
We'll cover those vehicles and everything in between starting on Tuesday, November 1. We'll have videos, blog posts and constant Twitter updates on anything that makes news along with details on all the cars, parts and anything else worth seeing at SEMA.
