SEMA 2007 Vehicle Design Award winners announced



http://www.motorauthority.com/cars/g...ers-announced/

In the midst of all the chaos that is the Specialty Equipment Market Associationís annual show, there are four cars each year that stand out as the very best in their categories. Rated on ease of customization, the Vehicle Design Awards are given for the best car, SUV, truck and hybrid.

The hybrid category was added in 2006, the inaugural winner being the gigantic Chevrolet Silverado Classic Hybrid. Its successor and this yearís winner is the Chevrolet Tahoe hybrid. The 2008 Cadillac CTS took home the car category win, taking over from last yearís winner, the Ford Shelby GT 500. The truck category was taken by Nissanís Titan and the SUV crown went to the Hummer H2. Aside from the Titan, the awards were a GM sweep.

What makes these vehicles tops in their respective categories is not any single feature or trait, but rather their adaptability to after-market accessorization and customization. The winners exhibit the very best in accessibility for SEMA member companies in their efforts to develop new looks and performance for existing cars. Cadillac chose SEMA to display the CTS Sport specification, which you can see by clicking here

A near GM sweep!!! Nice!

WTF, Titan won the SEMA award? But the thing is a pile of ****! Almost has as many problems as the Tundra!

Speaking of Tundra, one was infront of me on the way home today, I felt bad for the guy, until he started swirving through traffic like he was some sort of ******* Ford driver.

I know, I was inspecting the tailgate area when he was stopped infront of me at the stoplight. I was hoping it wasn't going to come flying back at me.

I know, I have the first year CTS and all of my coworkers are wondering where I get all this EXTRA money.

They are very impressive cars.

Mine is a 6, but still very ballsy for what it is.
