Automotive experts are speculating on what the top vehicle models will be at the upcoming SEMA Show taking place November 5-8, 2013, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With predictions for the SEMA Award ranging from new truck models to popular, top-selling models, excitement is rising as to which vehicles will take home top honors.

“The SEMA Award is always a strong indicator of which vehicles are likely going be most popular with consumers in the coming year," said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. “Vehicles chosen for display at the SEMA Show are by definition the hottest-trending and most accessory-friendly models among enthusiasts, and these models often become high-demand vehicles for the car-buying public.”

Last year's SEMA Award winners were the Ford Mustang in the car category, the Scion FR-S in the sport compact category, the Ford F-Series in the truck category and the Jeep Wrangler in the 4x4-SUV category. Industry experts agree that both Chevy and Ford models will again have a strong presence at the SEMA Show with vehicle customizers this year.

Here's what some industry experts are saying:

“I believe the 2014 C7 Corvette will be the most prominent vehicle at the 2013 SEMA Show. The car will be fresh to the market with production starting in early September. For the truck category, I like the 2014 Chevy Silverado; for the 4x4 category, I like the Jeep Wrangler; and for sport compact category, I like the Honda Civic.” -- Mike Copeland, Vice President of Operations, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering
