Can I buy any of the 2016 SEMA concept packages?
For good reason, Chevrolet is putting the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro front and center with a few concepts for the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week. The all-new 2017 Chevy Camaro SS Slammer concept takes nimble and athletic design of the current body style and teases potential buyers with reimagined exterior elements as well as custom features, like its Dazzling Black paint scheme. Fans of the Silverado HD family won’t be left behind at SEMA. The Alaskan Edition of the Chevy Silverado 2500HD offers a very sharp exterior with underlying components ready to tackle the harshest winter environments.
At this point, it’s not terribly clear if or when packages like the Camaro SS Slammer or Alaskan Edition of the Silverado HD will be available at dealerships like Don Wheaton. Everyone at the dealership certainly hopes each of these packages become available for customers to take home.
2017 Camaro SS Slammer Concept features
Designers from Chevrolet took inspiration from modern trends in the hot rod community to give the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept its distinctive look. Staggered size wheels help give the car a low stance. The Camaro Slammer concept using custom 22-inch wheels in the front and 24-inch chrome wheels in the back. A few modifications to the frame and body panels had to be made to accommodate the new wheels as well as the air-adjustable suspension.
“The Camaro SS Slammer concept is a design exercise intended to take the Gen 6 Camaro’s proportions to the extreme, pushing boundaries to evoke reactions and inspiring personalization on behalf of other Camaro owners,” John Cafaro, executive director, Global Chevrolet Design said in press release. “From styling accessories to performance parts, the choices from Chevrolet for new Camaro owners are almost endless.”
Under the hood of the Camaro concept vehicle sits a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter, V-8 LT1 small block engine. If it were to make to the track, drivers would be able to push 255 horsepower out of the engine as well as 455 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the wheels using a six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match. The throaty growl of the powerful LT1 engine is helped by Chevy Performance’s axle-back stainless steel exhaust with four-inch polished tips.
What comes with the Silverado 2500HD Alaska Edition?
This particular heavy duty Silverado concept may have been inspired by Alaska’s weather, but we think it would look and work just fine plowing driveways in Edmonton. If this accessory package were to be made available at Don Wheaton, buyers would be instore for a pretty impressive pickup. In addition to everything that’s offered with the Work Truck or LT trims, the Alaska Edition Silverado comes with 18-inch wheels wrapped with DuraTrac tires for maximum traction, smoked amber marker lights on the roof, a spray-on bedliner and the snowplow prep package.
Shown with an articulated plow, the hardware to use it on the truck includes a power feed for auxiliary lights, a 220-amp alternator and heavy duty front springs. Naturally, Chevy also included the next-general Duramax diesel engine in the Alaska Edition Silverado.
“No matter what the weather brings, Chevrolet HD trucks are designed to make the toughest jobs easier,” Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Truck marketing director said in a press release. “The new Alaskan Edition gives customers in snow country a stronger tool for tackling the worst that winter throws at them.”
