These days carmakers are going beyond traditional auto shows to taut their latest wares, like the 2019 Specialty Equipment Market Association... better known as SEMA.

The crowd in Las Vegas couldn’t miss the Ram 1500 Rebel OTG Concept. The “Off The Grid” is fitted with Mopar parts for go anywhere capability. But it was the collapsible rooftop tent and kitchen in the truck bed that really turned heads.

The Mopar touch also yielded this Lowliner Concept…a reimagined 1968 Dodge D200-series pickup.

Chevrolet brought their brand of ruggedness debuting the 2021 Colorado ZR2. A 2-inch suspension lift and 3-point-5-inch wider track are only some of its off-road tools.

For racier tastes, Ford and Webasto revealed the Mustang Lithium. This battery electric prototype produces more than 900-horsepower and over 1,000 lb-ft of torque...instantly.

Toyota kept the fast-flowing theme going with a wide variety of 2020 GR Supra models… accentuating the car’s heritage and sportiness.

Hyundai showed the Veloster N Performance Concept. Racing suspension, light weight wheels, and massive brakes are all there to beef up performance. 

The Korean brand’s more adventurous side arrived as the Veloster "Grappler" Concept… with all-terrain capability in a very compact size.

And that’s the highlights for 20-19 SEMA and this week’s Motor News.
