SEMA Sneak Peek 2016- An Exclusive Chevrolet Event


One of the many great GM/Chevrolet engineers on site working on the Tonneau anchor.


The tonneau install was also a breeze with great fitment and looks. One crucial and neat thing about all Chevrolet factory performance upgrades is that they maintain the factory warranty when installed by a Chevrolet dealer.


Also in the garage, there were several displays of new product offerings for the Silverado and Colorado. Of all of the new products available, my favorite were these new towing mirrors for the Silverado. Regardless of whether you actually use your new Silverado for towing or not, these mirrors are an absolute must because they are simply awesome and make your truck look that much more beefy.


For the next rotation, we test drove six different platforms of Camaros on a newer section of the Spring Mountain course. This section is a forgiving course, with smooth berms and easy left and right turns that set up the straights well. A coned chicane was placed on one of the straights to directly display the handling differences between the different Camaros. There are three available engine options for the current, sixth generation Camaro: a 275 horsepower, 295 lb.-ft. torque 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo; a 335 horsepower, 284 lb.-ft. torque 3.6L V6; and the beefy, 455 horsepower and matching 455 lb.-ft. torque 6.2L V8. We drove two Camaros per engine platform- one base model and one with the new, upgraded suspension and handling packages.


Getting into the V8 powered Camaro SS with performance parts upgrades, this was the model I was looking forward to the most.
