The SEMA show has been a favorite among car enthusiasts for years. Now, for the 2019 SEMA show, Chevrolet is bringing back its SEMA Design Awards Program to celebrate the creativity of car builders.

New Chevrolet Addition: 2020 Corvette

What the program entails

Chevrolet judges are going to be inspecting vehicles at the 2019 SEMA show and awarding car builders that uniquely incorporate Chevrolet components.

Specifically, the judges will look at connect and cruise integration as well as the Chevrolet crate engine. In addition, the integration of Chevrolet accessories, Chevrolet performance parts, and innovative technology are also areas of interest.

The innovative technology may include 3D manufacturing and electric powertrains. As for the Chevrolet parts, upgrades to the exhaust, intake, suspension, and brakes are key. Meanwhile, spoilers, wheels, and illuminated Bowties are some of the official Chevrolet accessories that judges will examine.

Chevrolet will award people in six different categories: Designer’s Choice, Best Track Build, Innovative Use of Technology, Best Off-Road Truck Build, Chevy SEMA Truck of the Year, and Chevy SEMA Car of the Year.

The winner of each category will be awarded a mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray special-edition trophy. To be considered for the awards, competitors just have to utilize a General Motors-based powertrain and place the Bowtie emblem on the vehicle’s front.

Although the 2019 SEMA show runs from November 5 to 8, you have to register by October 11 to have a chance at winning a Chevrolet design award. However, Chevrolet is letting one wildcard entrant register for the program at the SEMA show.

The Latest Tech: OnStar®

With more than 150,000 attendees each year, the SEMA show is sure to once again be a fantastic event for 2019. It will also be exciting to see the winners of the Chevrolet SEMA Design Awards Program.
