Chevy Debuts Redline Special Editions
Back last year, at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada, the good folks over at Chevrolet gave us our first glimpse of their new Redline series special editions in the form of a few concepts. These were sleek vehicles complete with blacked out wheels with sexy red has marks, black grilles with black Chevy bowties, and black nameplates complete with red outlines. To say the least, the Redline special edition concepts from SEMA looked gorgeous—like something out of the latest spy movie. Nevertheless, as these things go, we as consumers usually do not know what is going to survive the leap from concept to production vehicle. Well, if you were a fan of this blacked-out Chevy Redline special edition, then prepare to have your dreams come true.
That is to say, at this year’s Chicago Auto Show, Chevrolet unveiled their new production line of Redline special editions that include the likes of cars, pickups, and CUVs, all keeping the original concept look from back at last year’s SEMA. “Redline is another example of Chevrolet bringing SEMA concepts to showrooms,” noted Brian Sweeney, Vice President of United States Sales Operations over at Chevrolet. “The SEMA show has proven to be a great way to identify customization trends in the industry and quickly apply those trends to our most popular Chevrolet models. Based on the strong interest Redline attracted at the [SEMA] show, we believe they will be very popular with customers looking for standout cars, trucks, and crossovers.”
Too, not to mention, there are vehicle-specific Redline special edition trends that include such things as red tow hooks with regard to the Silverado and Colorado, as well as black has marks for the Camaro. The full list of vehicles to receive the Redline makeover is as follows: the Cruze LT-trim compact sedan and hatchback, the Malibu LT midsize sedan, the Camaro LT/SS sports coupe and convertible, the Trax LT compact CUV, the Equinox LT 5-passenger CUV, the Traverse Premier large CUV, the Colorado LT midsize pickup, and the Silverado Double Cab LT Z71 and Crew Cab LTZ Z71 large pickups.
“Our special-edition lineup has been popular with customers and dealers alike,” Sweeney continues. “Since the introduction of special editions on vehicles like the Silverado and Camaro, vehicle average transcription prices have increased, time-to-turn has decreased, and conquest rates have risen, which has contributed to making Chevrolet the fastest-growing brand in the industry two years in a row.”
