Chevrolet is excited about the new additions to its sport utility vehicle line-up, such as the Chevrolet Traverse and Chevrolet Equinox.
In an era where the self-driving cars are the hot topic in the auto industry, Chevy is also eager to show off the versatility of those utes by highlighting how they can be accessorized to fit into active, outdoor-oriented lifestyles that are popular with the younger buyers coveted by car makers.
One of the vehicles that Chevrolet plans to show at SEMA, along with roughly 20 other vehicles, is the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse SUP concept vehicle.
In keeping with automakers’ efforts to use accessories to target select groups of consumers, the Traverse SUP, zeroes in on one of the fastest-growing water sports — stand up paddle boarding. The redesigned three-row Traverse is used as the basis for the SUP, which features unique graphics as well as other accessories.
