Chevrolet Red Line Concepts Debut Before SEMA

Chevrolet Family Line-Up

Chevrolet brought their series of Red Line concept cars to SEMA, but released images and details on the vehicles beforehand to build up excitement and anticipation for the lineup. The diverse concepts include the Trax, Malibu, Camaro, Colorado, and Silverado 1500, in addition to the upcoming Chevrolet Spark RS concept. The Chevrolet Red Line concepts debuted November 3rd at SEMA.

The Red Line series was designed to show off the customization and personalization capabilities of Chevrolet’s 2016 lineup, and the Red Line upgrades will be available for vehicles in that lineup. The Red Line series upgrades include a new Enhanced Silver Metallic color palette option, Charcoal roof panel, and accents in red and Satin Graphite. Most of the changes will be purely cosmetic, so while the price has not yet been announced, they are expected to be rather affordable.

The 2015 SEMA Motor Show takes place in Las Vegas from November 3rd through 6th, drawing a crowd of over 60,000. Chevy is using SEMA to gauge interest in the Chevrolet Red Line concepts, but are confident that Chevrolet Accessories will become a quality alternative to aftermarket parts when it comes to personalizing their vehicles.  Share with us your thoughts about Chevy’s line up for the SEMA show!

Chevy Camaro Z28 Snags 2014 Best Driver’s Car Award

Best Driver's Car Award
2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28

When it comes to car awards, some stand out above others. For instance, the 100 Best Cupholders Award isn’t quite as impressive as being named to a list of the 10 Best Interiors. Okay, we might have invented the cupholder award, but you get the point. So when Chevy’s Camaro Z/28 received Motor Trend’s 2014 Best Driver’s Car award, you can understand our excitement in being recognized as the best when it really counts.

Motor Trend selects the nominees from a field of all-new or significantly-updated performance models. These cars are put to the test, racing both on the track and off for the coveted spot as Best Driver’s Car.

Best Driver's Car AwardIn choosing the Z/28, the first American car to win in the award’s seven-year history, Motor Trend editors said the following: “The transformation of the fifth-generation Camaro from ‘muscle car that handles pretty well’ to Best Driver’s Car winner is astounding. You feel the superior engineering in how the car responds to inputs both internal and external. From within, the car reacts immediately and precisely to your commands but doesn’t punish your mistakes. From the outside, the Z/28’s suspension attacks bumps and dips with an unbridled passion for keeping the tires on the pavement.”

If you find yourself looking for the best car on the road for the driving enthusiast, now you know to contact us here at Bradshaw Chevy for more information on how to get behind the wheel of the 2014 Camaro Z/28.
