We're not sure why Chevy even bothered.
We’re expecting plenty of wild concepts at SEMA this year. But it doesn’t look like Chevy has made much of an effort to be seen or heard at the automotive aftermarket show. The carmaker has revealed a quintet of concepts, none of which will get your juices flowing, unless go-faster stripes and bog-standard accessories turn you on. The Chevy SS Sport is arguably the tastiest of the five, which receives some Australian inspiration in the form of Holden’s 20-inch alloys, floor mats and cargo tray.
It also gets some bits from the Chevy catalogue including a grille kit and rear spoiler. The Impala Blackout has a fancy name but simply boasts some black accents, while Chevy has brought along two Sonics for SEMA. The Synergy Green Performance concept gets a cold-air intake and higher-flow exhaust for its 1.4-liter turbo-four as well as a lowered suspension. The lazily named Accessories concept shows off some, well, accessories. Bringing up the rear is the Cruze RS Plus, boasting a Wildfire Metallic paint job with black stripes, a performance kit for the 1.4-liter turbo, and some interior goodies such as a upgraded amplifier and ambient lighting.
