Chevrolet announced their plans for this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, and it involves a special Red Line Series Concepts of the Trax crossover, Camaro, Malibu, Colorado, Silverado, and Spark RS models.

So, what is the Redline Series?

Besides being decked out with bespoke silver metallic paint themes complimented with black and red vinyl and trim theme, the one-off models feature a range of upgrades that are more than just skin deep. Not to be confused with the Red Line brand from GM’s now defunct Saturn brand, the Red Line Series features a range of performance upgrades on top of the visuals.

For instance, the Chevrolet Trax, Malibu, and Spark RS models come with conceptual sports suspension setups, all featuring reduced ride heights, all of which are likely to improve handling in various respects for all cars. The Colorado and Silverado gain big brake kits from Brembo, as well as performance intake and exhaust kits to allow the engines to breathe better.

On top of the visual and slight performance upgrades, all the cars come with extra accessories all around, which are teasers for potential offerings for customers who are looking to customize the look of their cars from the factory.

Themed collection highlights production, concept components

2015-10-21

DETROIT – Blending equal parts style and functionality, Chevrolet’s Red Line Series concept vehicles demonstrate the lifestyle and personalization possibilities of the brand’s latest vehicles – all with a street-smart aesthetic.

Chevrolet previewed the Red Line concepts today, including Trax, Malibu, Camaro, Colorado and Silverado 1500 models, ahead of their public debut at the SEMA Show, on November 3. The preview also included the sporty Spark RS concept.

“The Chevrolet Red Line Series concepts integrate accessories that offer greater personalization choices,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Each vehicle wears production and concept accessories thematically linked under the Red Line Series banner. We look forward to gauging public reaction at the SEMA Show and other venues.”

All of the production and concept accessories were developed in Chevrolet’s design studio with the vehicles themselves. The production accessories will be available as the 2016 models arrive in dealer showrooms.

“Chevrolet Accessories bring value and the added security of knowing the parts are designed, engineered, tested and backed by the same team that developed the vehicles,” said Roger McCormack, director, Accessories & Performance Parts Marketing.

The Spark RS features a concept carbon-fiber front splitter, rocker extensions and a carbon-fiber rear-lower extension. Seventeen-inch wheels inspired by the Corvette Z07 fill out the wheel openings, while a lowered suspension gives the car an aggressive stance. The exterior is finished in Dark Liquid Switchblade Silver, with custom graphic accents.

“Every Chevrolet has the DNA of the Corvette and the Spark RS concept shows how the brand’s smallest car can deliver big on personalization,” said Todd Parker, director of design, Global Chevrolet. “It advances the RS heritage and interprets it in an entirely new way.”

The Spark RS concept is the result of a collaboration between Chevrolet’s design studios in North America and Korea. Chevrolet is gauging public opinion of the car in its evaluation for possible production.
