Chevrolet has a seriously packed booth ready for this year's SEMA show. Not only does the company already have the Camaro SS Special Edition, Silverado Toughnology and Colorado Sport, but it is now announcing five more concepts to be on display.
Among this quintet of concepts is the Chevy SS Sport that wears some Australian inspiration. Sure, it has the grille kit, fog light bezels and rear spoiler out of the Chevrolet Accessories catalog, but the 20-inch wheels, floor mats and cargo tray all sport the logo for Holden, General Motor's division Down Under. Power is left alone for this Aussie-inspired muscle sedan with the stock 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque 6.2-litre V8.
The Impala Blackout gets a monochromatic look to fit its name with a black grille surround, rear spoiler and mirror caps. It uses the sedan's standard 3.6-litre V6 with 305 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque.
Chevy also has two takes on the Sonic for SEMA. The Performance concept benefits from a cold-air intake and higher-flow exhaust for the 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder and a suspension kit to chop the ride height. On the outside, it gets some Synergy Green paint and upgraded trim.
The aptly named Accessories concept shows off what's available from Chevy's aftermarket catalog with white headlight and taillight rings and black replacement parts for the grille, mirror caps and rear spoiler. It also gets the suspension kit.
Finally, the Cruze RS Plus wears a custom paint job in Wildfire Metallic with matte black stripes, and the interior gets some ambient lighting, illuminated door sills and upgraded amplifier and subwoofer. Under the hood, Chevy equips the 1.4-litre turbo engine with a cold-air intake and "performance-enhancing stage kit," but total power isn't mentioned.
