To put together the Impala Blackout
concept for SEMA
didn't need to go much further than its accessories catalog. The in-house connection is what could make it possible for Chevy
to get a production version of the Blackout into dealers
this model year, with its few bits of chrome trim and dark detailing on the 19-inch aluminum wheels set into an abyss of gloss black paint, black Bowtie, grille surround, rear spoiler and mirror caps. The interior is black leather, with stainless steel for the sill plates and pedals, and an 11-speaker Bose audio system, and it gets the optional 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6.
The brand's marketing director for cars and crossovers
, Steve Majoros, told Edmunds
that it could come in late spring, and that it will be called "Midnight Edition." Majoros didn't give any indication of pricing or if the production car will be spec'd out like the concept.
If you simply don't want to wait for late spring, you could work your DIY mojo by putting one together the same way Chevrolet
did: give the accessories catalog a workout.
