It’s that time of year again, and the 2017 SEMA show is under way. As with every SEMA show, automakers have made some of the craziest, coolest vehicles they can to show off to the public what is possible with their vehicles. Chevrolet is no exception. Here is your sneak peek at Chevy’s trucks from the 2017 SEMA show.
The first two trucks were actually debuted at the 2017 State Fair of Texas, but Chevy felt they were cool enough to bring to SEMA as well. These are, of course, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2018 Chevy Colorado in a throwback Centennial Edition. These trucks were made to celebrate 100 years of Chevy trucks. As such, they feature a special paint color, Centennial blue. The Silverado comes with 22″ painted rims as well as a number of chrome accents. Topping it all off is a set of retro bow tie badges to complete the Centennial Package.
The Colorado gets a similar treatment: Special blue paint, heritage Chevy “bowtie” logos and LT model’s 18-inch rims. Spray-in bed liner, accessory floor liners, and chrome exterior accents finish the package.
However, Chevy decided to bring one more truck for its Centennial Edition lineup. That is a beautiful 1967 Chevy C10 pickup. As is tradition with C10s, this one has been lowered, painted in Centennial blue and fitted with a Z66 Chevy Performance Crate engine (much like the one in Big Green)
Unlike some of the vehicles shown at SEMA, you will actually be able to buy these trucks starting in November. Well, not the C10, you’d have to build that yourself.
Luke Bryan Suburban
Chevy always has a vehicle at SEMA that was designed by a celebrity. This year, it is country singer Luke Bryan who has decked out a 2018 Suburban as a fishing and hunting toy. The Suburban features a thematic green paint job with orange accents. The SUV has been lifted, and the third row has been turned around to be rear facing, acting like a mobile hunting tent. Oh yeah, and the glass surrounding the rear seats has been taken out.
Chevy Performance Silverado
This offering from Chevy performance has been fitted with 20″ wheels and Brembo brakes. Why the extra grip and stopping power? Those are supplements for the, now supercharged, V8 that is under the hood. Chevy says this truck makes about 100 horsepower more than stock, and that the truck is properly fast. While Chevy won’t sell you the supercharger just yet, they say this truck is somewhat of a test mule, so the parts may be available in the near future.
Chevy Colorado Midnight Edition
Last, but not least, is a Midnight edition of the 2018 Chevy Colorado. As with all Midnight editions, this Colorado has been properly blacked out. It features black paint, black wheels, a black sports bar with LED lights, and a black “bowtie” badge.
