The 2022 SEMA Show was an interesting one, with attendees reporting huge crowds and massive amounts of exhibitors even though both Ford Motor Company and General Motors opted to not participate in the world’s largest showcase of automotive aftermarket parts. However, Dodge made the most of the big crowds and the focused spotlight, showing off their in-house aftermarket efforts via the Direct Connection brand alongside the all-electric Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee Concept.
