Chevy to show Red Line Series concepts at SEMA Show
General Motors Co.’s Chevrolet brand said Wednesday it will show Red Line Series concept vehicles next month at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
The Red Line concepts, previewed Wednesday, include a Chevy Trax, Malibu, Camaro, Colorado and Silverado 1500. The vehicles feature an enhanced silver metallic color, charcoal roof panel, satin graphite and red accents and other features and accessories depending on the model. They are set to debut at SEMA Nov. 3.
“The Chevrolet Red Line Series concepts integrate accessories that offer greater personalization choices,” Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports, said in a statement. “Each vehicle wears production and concept accessories thematically linked under the Red Line Series banner. We look forward to gauging public reaction at the SEMA Show and other venues.”
In some cases, GM and Chevy may decide to put one or more of the concepts into production as a special edition. GM said accessories will be available when the 2016 model year vehicles hit dealer lots.
Chevy also revealed a Spark RS concept vehicle, a sporty take on the subcompact in a dark liquid switchblade silver color with features such as a carbon-fiber front splitter, 17-inch wheels and a lower suspension. Chevy says it plans to gauge reaction on the concept and may put it into production. Chevy has RS versions of the Camaro, Sonic and Cruze.
“Every Chevrolet has the DNA of the Corvette and the Spark RS concept shows how the brand’s smallest car can deliver big on personalization,” Todd Parker, director of design for Global Chevrolet, said in a statement. “It advances the RS heritage and interprets it in an entirely new way.”
