SEMA and the Silverado

If you’re not familiar with the SEMA Show, it’s an annual event that celebrates and reveals innovative aftermarket products. It also pays tribute to the organization’s partnership with OEMs to bring quality products to the market.

SEMA vice president Mike Spagnola spoke to the authoritative presence that the organization represents in the auto field. “SEMA Show exhibitors are the innovators and experts who drive the […] industry. Knowing what they believe are the best vehicles for accessorization helps to forecast trends.”

The Silverado has not only continued to thrive year in and year out, but it has also introduced new features and technologies to satisfy Chevy fans and improve the overall user experience. The Silverado Redline package, Midnight Edition, and Rally Edition offer a bit of flair for truck consumers who want to make a more dramatic impression on the road. And tech like the 2020 Silverado HD model’s 15-view camera system makes trailering easier and safer.

Concluding thoughts

The Chevy Silverado’s newest accolade gives it an edge over its rival, the Ford F-Series. The F-Series had claimed the SEMA Truck of the Year title for the past four years. We commend Chevy for a job well done and look forward to more exciting tweaks and introductions to the Silverado lineup as we transition into 2020.
