Chevrolet’s design game is strong, as evidenced by 2016 Chevrolet concept models that recently debuted at the SEMA Show…
One of those concepts was Chevrolet Chevelle Slammer Concept, which harkens back to the days when muscle cars reigned supreme, with a slick and classic exterior design that pays homage to the iconic ‘69 Chevelle. The Slammer sits low and features a long hood and classic grille.
But that’s all to hint at what’s under the hood, an aggressive and all-new LT376/535 crate engine, which pumps out 535 horsepower. While we won’t likely see this concept go to production, we can all agree with Chevy that is a “perfect platform to launch the new direct-injected LT376/535 crate engine.”
Chevy also proved its superior design abilities hold true in America’s favorite segment, the crossover. The Chevrolet Trax Activ Concept was made for those living an “adventurous lifestyle.”
Not only is this crossover all-wheel drive, engineers both widened and lifted the suspension, making it easier to get to those hard-to-reach camping spots. The Thule roof rack helps you carry everything you could ever need into the backcountry and the Satin Sandstorm exterior color means you’ll look great as you disappear into the hinterlands. No one questioned the hardiness of the Chevy Trax before, but the Trax Activ Concept proves this model’s ruggedness beyond question.
It’s always fun to see the designers and engineers of Chevrolet “playing jazz” a bit, flexing their creative muscles and letting the world see just what kind of brilliance they are capable of.
