Among the many vehicles on display is this, the simplistically named Camaro Performance concept. Wearing Summit White paint and an accessory stripe package, Chevy has avoided the really serious, concept car flourishes in favor of something that looks like you could buy from a dealer. There are 20-inch concept wheels, sure, but the darkened taillights, "blade-style" spoiler, chin spoiler, SS grille, and black bowtie emblems can all be purchased at your local Chevy dealer. The accessories catalog is also on display in the cabin, where the Jet Black leather is paired with Red Hot door accents, along with Chevrolet Performance pedals, floor mats and knee pads.
The aesthetic upgrades aren't that notable, but the performance upgrades are certainly worth mentioning. The 6.2-liter V8 breathes easier thanks to a new performance air intake and exhaust system, while this SS model will turn and stop more aggressively, too, thanks to the lowered suspension and Brembo brakes.
Expect much more on the Camaro from the floor of the 2015 SEMA show.
Customized quartet demonstrate personalization and performance possibilities
LAS VEGAS – With the all-new 2016 Camaro rolling soon into dealerships across the country, Chevrolet introduced four customized concepts at the SEMA Show today – each demonstrating the personalization possibilities enabled by a new lineup of accessories and performance parts.
The customized quartet includes:
Camaro Chevrolet Performance concept – a Summit White Camaro SS featuring new red accents, billet-cut 20-inch forged lightweight aluminum wheels, lowered suspension and performance upgrades
Camaro Hyper concept – inspired by Camaro's heritage, this Hyper Blue Camaro LT coupe with the available 3.6L V-6 engine features white rally stripes, heritage-style fender badges and polished 20-inch forged aluminum wheels
Camaro Black concept – a blacked-out vision of the Camaro SS, it wears a Mosaic Black Metallic exterior with darkened trim all around, tinted glass and black 20-inch wheels. A lowered suspension completes the sinister stance
Camaro Krypton concept – in addition to its electroluminescent Krypton Green paint, the exterior features illuminated bowties that cascade down the body sides at the flip of a switch.
These Gen Six concepts blend concept parts and production accessories. Chevrolet will offer elements of some of the concept vehicles in accessory packages in early 2016.
"Since it was introduced in 1967, the Camaro has been one of the industry's most personal and personalized cars," said Roger McCormack, director, Accessories & Performance Parts Marketing. "Many customers use the Camaro as a canvas to express their personalities and these concepts serve as inspiration for the many options available from Chevrolet."
The portfolio of Camaro accessories and performance parts includes:
Three aluminum wheel designs, in multiple finishes
Grille kits with six body-color inserts for LT and SS models; inserts are also available in chrome-appearance or primed versions for custom painting
A blade-style rear spoiler and ground effects kit, each offered in 10 colors
