Here's a look at the Specialty Equipment Market Association's (SEMA) list of the most accessory-friendly vehicles for 2006:
Chevrolet's retro-style HHR was named most accessory-friendly SUV. The five-passenger HHR provides a number of storage compartments and can be configured to haul a substantial cargo load.
"This all-new retro-look multi-use vehicle lends itself to many different styling directions. The aftermarket will have a heyday with this SUV, and die-hard GM fans now have their own little HHR cruiser to kick out," said David M. Gordon for Hamsar Diversco, Inc.
The high-performance Dodge Charger was named the most accessory-friendly car. Available exterior accessories include wings, wheel flares, chin spoilers, fender portholes/vents, and hood scoops. Drivers can also find a variety of new wheels for their Chargers.
"The HEMI engine has the potential to draw a lot of attention to the Charger, but there are a lot of wheel and tire combinations you could put on it to give it different looks. It seems like a very good vehicle to accessorize," said Ron Hunter, of Phoenix USA Inc.
The Dodge Ram Mega Cab was named the most accessory-friendly truck. The vehicle can be customized with different types of grills, bumper billets, lights and towing systems. However, its interior can also be easily customized to include new types of audio and video systems, as well as dash and gear accessories.
"The possibilities to enhance the cab of this Dodge are limited only by the imagination of the specific accessory manufacturer. With the popularity today of audio and video entertainment systems, the Dodge Mega Cab is a dream come true for audiophiles along with raising the bar on innovative new custom interior upgrade packages," explained Larry Weiner, of Performance West Group, Inc.
