Special Edition Green Flash Camaro Unveiled at SEMA

Last month, Chevrolet asked its social media fans to help choose a name for the latest special edition Camaro. The car in question has a unique shade of green paint along with other custom elements.

Fans submitted their suggestions through social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #NameThatCamaro. At the recent SEMA show in Las Vegas, Chevrolet announced the winning name, suggested by fan Jason M.

Say hello to the special edition Green Flash Camaro.

This unique Camaro will be available early next year. Along with the green paint job, the Camaro also has Cyber Gray racing stripes, 21-inch Chrome Dusk wheels, a ZL1 rear spoiler, RS appearance package, and a ground effects kit. The interior will only come in black with a Graphite Silver trim. You’ll also get a navigation system and sunroof with the option for a short-throw shifter and dual-mode exhaust.

The Green Flash Camaro will be one of the last special editions based on the fifth-generation 2015 Camaro. Pricing will be announced closer to the release date.

Are you anxious to get behind the wheel of this amazing Camaro? We certainly are!

SEMA Acts as Stage for Ricky Carmichael Chevrolet Colorado Concept Debut

2015 Chevy Colorado - Ricky Carmichael Chevrolet Colorado Concept If you want to create an intriguing concept car for the outrageous SEMA Show, you have to think out of the box—which is exactly what Chevrolet did this year. Rather than turning to a car expert to create its Colorado Performance Concept, the American carmaker instead looked to an expert in two-wheeled vehicles—Ricky Carmichael.

As a ten-time AMA Motocross Champion, Carmichael knows what a pickup truck needs to haul around sports equipment, so he put this knowledge to the test and created the Ricky Carmichael Chevrolet Colorado Concept.

Based on the Chevrolet Colorado crew cab with a six-foot, two-inch cargo bed, Carmichael’s concept car puts the “sport” in “sporty”. A cargo extender and GearOn system give consumers an easy way to transport bikes, both motocross and regular, while the CornerStep bumpers allow easy access while loading and unloading. A matte grey exterior enhances the trucks athletic appearance, while the silver and yellow hint at the creator’s experience on the motocross track.

 

While the Ricky Carmichael Chevrolet Colorado Concept isn’t available for production, you can stop in to Tom Naquin Chevrolet and personalize your own pickup to fit your needs.

Chevrolet Amps up the Silverado with Performance Cheyenne

 

At the recent SEMA Show in Las Vegas, everyone got a good look at Chevrolet’s new Silverado Cheyenne high-performance concept truck. This small truck shares the same engine as the 2014 Corvette Stingray, uses some of the same parts as the Camaro Z/28, and has even more enhancements for improved handling.

The engine is the 6.2-liter V8 that makes 420 horsepower, and its Z/28-shared parts include the wheels, tires, and carbon ceramic brakes. This is definitely not a truck for hauling bales of hay. Chevrolet even gave it a lowered suspension, a rear stabilizer bar, and a Borla exhaust to make it truly track-ready.

To make sure the Cheyenne wasn’t carrying any unnecessary weight, engineers used carbon fiber for the bumpers, cargo box, and tailgate. It also uses only a standard-sized cabin and the small bed size Chevrolet offers.

Best of all, according to Autoblog, the Cheyenne concept may actually make it to production!

Chevrolet Previews SEMA Concepts in Preparation for 2013 SEMA Show

In preparation for the upcoming 2013 SEMA Show, Chevrolet has previewed some of its performance-oriented concepts that will be on display when the show begins November 5th. The SEMA Show is the world’s largest convention of automotive aftermarket parts and accessories. It takes place in Las Vegas from November 5th through November 8th.

Some of the vehicles that Chevrolet recently previewed include the Sonic, all-new Impala, and a personalized version of the Malibu. These concepts feature accessories that allow for personalization, but still maintain the vehicle’s excellent ride characteristics. While some of these accessories are available from Chevrolet dealers, others are still being evaluated for production.

Leading the way for Chevrolet at the 2013 SEMA Show will be two “super” Sonics, which feature enhanced 1.4-liter turbo engines, suspension, exterior and interior accessories, and custom color-and-graphic packages.
