With the SEMA Show set to open its doors in Las Vegas, automakers are rolling out a wide range of concepts – and even a few production vehicles. Chevrolet has been trickling out previews of some of the special models it will have on display at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and now says it will reveal nine special performance models, in all.
We already offered a close-up of one of these, the Chevrolet Silverado Cheyenne Concept, a special, lightweight version of the full-size 2014 pickup that gets the added benefit of a new 6.2-liter V-8. But the Cheyenne will have some competition drawing crowds to the Chevy stand from an assortment of other models, including the COPO Camaro, the Suburban Half-Pipe Concept, and even the Brad Paisley Signature Silverado bearing the country store’s logo – and whopping 22-inch wheels.
For those unfamiliar with the SEMA Show, it’s the annual aftermarket extravaganza put on by the Specialty Equipment Marketers Association, and manufacturers like Chevrolet have turned it into a showcase not only for the brand but the huge array of accessories that can transform a mundane sedan or pickup into a unique expression of a buyer’s personality.
