What We Learned from Chevrolet at SEMA 2016

November 15th, 2016 by


Earlier this month, the Specialty Equipment Marketing Association Show in Las Vegas was booming with displays of auto parts for light trucks and cars. We here at Chevrolet Center were unfortunately not present, but like you, we’ve kept a close eye on it. Here’s what we learned from Chevrolet at SEMA 2016!

The Colorado could very well be the future of military vehicles.

A display showcasing the Chevy Colorado ZH2 hydrogen fuel cell pickup truck was present at the show, and it drew a lot of attention. The strong camo-colored pickup was the fruits of Chevrolet teaming up with the U.S. Army in designing a Colorado truck with zero emissions. And man, was it a stunning sight!

The Silverado is ready to show the snow the side of the road.

Another highlight was the Chevy Silverado Alaskan pickup truck concept. Over half of the truck was stained in blue, but trust us. The winter blues, for those who live in the north, will have nothing on this truck. Based on the 2500 Heavy Duty truck, this pickup includes a 6.6-liter V8 Duramax turbo-diesel engine that delivers 445 horsepower and comes with a stainless-steel snow plow. If that’s not enough for your inner-handyman, the truck also offered a salt shovel, snow gloves, ramps, jumper cables and chrome accents. Chevrolet also has these tools in their catalog. But who says Winter Haven locals have to worry too much about winter snow?

The Trax is on track to equip you for your next adventure.

Another concept vehicle that had people talking was the Chevy Trax Active all-wheel drive SUV. The vehicle was built to carry mountain bikes and different types of camping gear. The Active AWD SUV was flawless from its 18-inch wheels and all-terrain tires to its front-facing LED bar on the roof for lighting. On the inside, there were all-weather floor liners and folding rear seats.

As you can see there, are a lot of big things going on in Chevrolet, and SEMA was proof of that. To learn more about these concepts as well as others including the Chevy Camaro, head on over to Chevrolet.com!
