The show cars – the Camaro SS Red Accent Package concept and the Camaro SS Black Accent Package concept – feature their own packages of parts and accessories.
As its name suggests, the Red Accent Concept is a Camaro SS convertible laden with stylish red accents all over. It features a Switchblade Silver Metallic exterior accented by red accessory trim.
The Camaro SS Red Accent Package Concept dons a lower grille with red inserts and black bowtie emblems, as well as red “hash mark” fender graphics. Moreover, this show car features a set of 20-inch five-Spoke Gloss Black wheels with Red Outline Stripe.
It also features a red-accented engine cover. Its Adrenaline Red leather-trimmed interior includes an illumination kit with red aluminum door inserts and red knee pads. Moreover, it features sport pedal covers as well as premium SS-logo carpeted floor mats and center console cover.
Camaro SS Red Accent Package concept comes with a number of performance kits like air intake, lowered suspension and Brembo front brakes with six-piston calipers.
On the other hand, the Camaro SS Black Accent Package concept is basically a Red Hot Camaro SS coupe with an added Black Accent package. Black accents include black ground effects, black bowtie emblems and satin black rally stripes, as well as darkened taillamps and a concept black fuel door cover.
This concept also features black 20-inch five-Split Spoke Low Gloss Black Wheels. Just like the other MY2016 Camaro concept, the Camaro SS Black Accent Package concept comes with a number of performance parts like performance suspension lowering kit and Brembo front brake package with red calipers.
Additionally, the concept is provided with a new performance air intake and a red accented engine cover. The black accent is continued inside the cabin of this concept. Its Jet Black leather-trimmed interior comes with black interior trim and knee pads as well as SS-logo premium carpeted floor mats and sport pedal covers.
It also features a suede console lid with the Chevrolet Performance logo and red stitching. Chevrolet is planning to display both Camaro SS concepts – as well as over 20 Chevrolet vehicles featuring production and concept accessories and performance parts -- at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Roger McCormack, director for Accessories & Performance Parts Marketing, remarked that the two Camaro concepts are only examples of what customers can do to personalize their Chevrolet ride.
On the other hand, the new portfolio of Gen Six Camaro-exclusive accessories includes four exterior graphics packages -- ”rally stripe,” front-fender “hash mark,” racing stripe designs, and a body-side “spear” graphic – all offered in a number of colors. Also available are grille kits with six body-color inserts for LT and SS models.
Grille inserts can be specified in either chrome-appearance and primed variant for custom painting. Customers could also opt for any of the three available aluminum wheel designs, which come in multiple finishes.
Chevrolet is also a blade-style rear spoiler and ground effects kit, each of which can be specified in any of the 10 available colors. The portfolio likewise includes interior trim kits, including knee pads and door accent trim, also offered in multiple colors.
Available Gen-Six Camaro performance parts, meanwhile, include suspension lowering kits for SS and LT models, although these are incompatible with SS models with the optional Magnetic Ride Control.
Additionally, customers can avail of performance exhaust kits for Camaro SS and V-6-equipped LT models, although these kits are incompatible with those models with dual-mode exhaust system. Also available as part of the new portfolio are Brembo performance front brake packages for SS and LT models; performance air intake kit for the SS; and engine covers for SS and V-6-equipped LT models.
To help customers preview the accessories and parts prior to ordering them, Chevrolet has set an online Camaro Visualizer. McCormack remarked that the latest portfolio will be the largest-ever, with possibilities limited only by imagination.
Meanwhile, Adam Barry, senior creative designer for the Chevrolet Camaro, commented that all the accessories in the portfolio further boost the Camaro’s already strong design.
He noted that these were developed in the Chevrolet Performance Studio alongside the Camaro production model, which means that all these parts are also designed, engineered and aero-tested by the same team responsible for designing the Gen Six Camaro.
