Chevrolet to Offer Redline Special-Edition Trim on 9 Models

chevrolet-redline-special-edition-series

Elizabeth City, NC -Chevrolet to offer redline special-edition trim on 9 models.

Redline, featuring black wheels with red hash marks and blacked-out nameplates, Chevy logos and grilles, is the largest cross-brand special edition ever offered by Chevrolet, the General Motors brand said. It was set to unveil the special-edition vehicles at the Chicago auto show today.

Models with Redline options will include the Malibu LT, Traverse Premier and the Silverado Double Cab LT Z71.

The Redline special edition made its debut at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

“Redline is another example of Chevrolet bringing SEMA concepts to showrooms,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet, in a statement. The SEMA show has proven to be a great way to identify customization trends in the industry, and quickly apply those trends to our most popular Chevrolet models.”

Chevrolet said the Redline would first be available for purchase on the Silverado, and orders can be taken at Chevy dealerships now. Each of the models with Redline editions will be made available by the end of the year. Pricing is not available, a Chevrolet spokesman said.

Sweeney said the Redline special-edition lineup could prove to be a boon for dealers.

“Since the introductions of special editions on vehicles like the Silverado and Camaro, vehicle average transaction prices have increased, time to turn has decreased and conquest rates have risen, which has contributed to making Chevrolet the fastest-growing brand in the industry two years in a row,” he said.

Other vehicles with available Redline trim will be the Cruze sedan and hatchback, Camaro, Trax, Equinox and Colorado.

Elizabeth City, NC – Chevrolet is expanding the popular Midnight Special Edition with new models available on 2016 Silverado 1500 Z71 and 2016 Colorado Z71. They join a growing portfolio of special-edition trucks whose popularity helped Chevrolet truck sales increase 27 percent last year – double the increase for the total truck market.

With the addition of the Silverado 2500 HD Z71 which was introduced in September, Elizabeth City-area customers now can select from midsize, light-duty and heavy duty Midnight editions. Each combines off-road equipment and monochromatic details, such as:

  • Off-road suspension
  • Locking rear differential

  • Hill Descent Control
  • Aggressive Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac all-terrain tires
  • All-black front end with body-colored grille, bumper, headlamp bezels, tow hooks and fog lamps
  • Black side moldings and beltline moldings
  • Black painted alloy wheels
  • Special Z71 badges on the doors
  • A spray-in bedliner (black, of course)
  • And black Chevrolet bowties for the front and rear.

“The Silverado 1500 Midnight was very well received by our customers in 2015,” said Kevin Burton of Performance Chevrolet. “Offering the combination of off-road equipment with a bold, black appearance in three Z71 Midnight Special editions is sure to be a big hit again this year.”

Other special-editions available for 2016 include the Silverado Realtree®, Silverado Special Ops, and Colorado Trail Boss, with additional models to be announced later this year.

New 1LE Packages Elevate Camaro Track Capabilities

2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE performance package

Elizabeth City, NC – The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE performance package returns for 2017, poised to set new benchmarks for attainable track performance.

The package builds off the success of the previous-generation 1LE, offering Elizabeth City-area drivers increased handling and track performance. In response to customer demand, Chevrolet will offer two distinct 1LE packages, for both V6 and V8 models, each visually distinguished with a satin black hood, specific wheels and more.

“Our customers, especially performance enthusiasts, will appreciate everything that the 1LE performance packages have to offer,” said Javon Shannon, Certified Sales Professional of Performance Chevrolet. “It further elevates the Camaro by delivering increased power, agile handling and driver-focused technologies.”

For the first time, the 1LE package will be available on Camaro 1LT or 2LT coupes equipped with the 3.6L V6. Featuring more aggressive suspension tuning, standard Brembo brakes and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, the LT 1LE delivers drivers an estimated 0.97G in cornering grip. Available Recaro seats will keep you planted through the corners, and an available Performance Data Recorder will allow [INSERT CITY/TOWN]-area drivers to view and share their track experience.

The new 1LE package for Camaro 1SS models includes magnetic ride control, with a new FE4 suspension tuning and a new, segment-exclusive electronic limited slip differential (eLSD). Paired with massive Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, lateral acceleration will exceed 1G. Additional features available on the 1LE package include standard Recaro seats and a Performance Data Recorder (PDR), new to the Camaro lineup.

As a result, the 1LE package elevates the award-winning performance that earned Camaro the 2016 Motor Trend Car of the Year and Car and Driver 10Best awards.

“The Camaro 1LE packages follow a recipe any track-day enthusiast will appreciate,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “Start with a lightweight, stiff structure and then add higher levels of suspension stiffness and damping, more aggressive tires, higher downforce, more powerful brakes and more cooling.

“The result delivers better performance in all measures,” said Oppenheiser. “In our development tests, the V-6 Camaro 1LE delivers lap times comparable with the previous-gen V-8 model. The 2016 Camaro SS 1LE sets the new benchmark for the segment, lapping the Big Willow track at Willow Springs three seconds faster than the standard Camaro SS.”

The new 1LE packages will be available in late 2016 at Performance Chevrolet, on 2017 Camaro SS and LT V-6 coupes equipped with manual transmissions. Pricing and performance data will be announced at a later date.

Camaro LT 1LE

The Camaro LT 1LE was developed to be the most track-capable sports coupe in its price class. Highlights include:

  • 3.6L V-6 rated at 335 horsepower and matched with the six-speed manual transmission
  • FE3 suspension components (from the Camaro SS), including dampers, rear cradle mounts, ball-jointed rear toe links and stabilizer bars
  • Lightweight 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 245/40R20 front tires and 275/35R20 rear tires
  • Brembo 4-piston front brake calipers
  • Mechanical Limited-slip differential with 3.27 ratio
  • Standard track-cooling package, with engine oil, differential and transmission coolers
  • Suede steering wheel and shorter-throw shifter
  • Standard dual mode exhaust system
  • Camaro SS fuel system for higher-load cornering capability
  • Satin black hood, front splitter and unique three-piece rear spoiler
  • Unique high flow upper and lower grille with satin black accents
  • Available Recaro seats and PDR video/data recording system.

“With a curb weight under 3,500 pounds, excellent front-to-rear weight balance and the precision of the FE3 suspension, the Camaro LT 1LE offers unmatched capability in its class,” said Oppenheiser. “As a result, it offers incredible performance for Camaro V-6 customers.”

Camaro SS 1LE

The 2017 Camaro SS 1LE introduces the new FE4 suspension to the Gen Six Camaro – a performance-oriented chassis system with specific tuning for the Magnetic Ride dampers, springs and stabilizer bars. Additional highlights include:

  • 6.2L LT1 V-8 rated at 455 horsepower, and six-speed manual transmission (automatic transmission not available)
  • Magnetic Ride Control
  • Segment-exclusive electronic limited-slip differential with 3.73 ratio
  • Unique forged aluminum wheels with 285/30ZR20 front tires and 305/30ZR20 rear tires
  • Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires with a compound and construction developed exclusively for the Camaro – offering exceptional grip on the track
  • Brembo brakes with new six-piston monobloc front red calipers – featuring the 1LE logo – and two-piece rotors. Measuring 14.6 inches (370mm) in diameter, the front rotors are 7 percent larger than Camaro SS
  • Track-cooling package, with engine oil, differential and transmission coolers
  • Suede steering wheel with shorter-throw shifter
  • Dual mode exhaust system
  • Recaro front seats with aggressive bolsters optimized for shifting and steering comfort
  • Satin black hood, front mirrors and unique three-piece rear spoiler
  • Satin Graphite front splitter and rear diffuser
  • Available PDR video/data recording system.

FAST FACT: The 1LE package was developed in 1988 to make the Camaro more competitive in Showroom Stock road racing series and officially debuted in 1989. Four examples were reportedly built in 1988; with 111 built in 1989. The 1LE package was also featured on fourth-gen vehicles through the 1999 model year, returning to the fifth-gen Camaro in 2013.

Chevrolet Introduces 2017 Cruze Hatchback

Ahead of its debut at the North American International Auto Show, Chevrolet today introduced the 2017 Cruze Hatchback. Developed with all the technologies and dynamic driving attributes of the all-new 2016 Cruze sedan, the new hatch adds a functional and sporty choice for customers. It joins Colorado and Trax as the latest Chevrolets to push into new segments.

The Cruze Hatch has the same, class-leading 106.3-inch (2,700 mm) wheelbase as sedan models, but features a unique roof and rear-end structure – including wraparound taillamps and an integrated spoiler at the top of the liftgate. It opens to offer 22.7 cubic feet (643 liters) of cargo space behind the rear seat. With the rear seat folded, cargo space expands to 47.2 cubic feet (1,336 liters).

“With 9 percent market growth in small hatchbacks last year, it’s the perfect time to bring the Cruze Hatch to America,” said Alan Batey, president, General Motors North America and Global Chevrolet. “As Cruze continues to set the tone for Chevrolet globally, it articulates the brand promise of offering cars with the latest technologies, more features and greater efficiency, performance and safety with fresh, distinctive styling.”

An all-new, more rigid and lighter architecture is the Cruze’s foundation for driving dynamism, while also playing a significant role in safety and efficiency. It is more than 200 pounds (91 kg) lighter than the previous-generation model due largely to a body structure that is 100 pounds lighter and an engine that’s 44 pounds (20 kg) lighter.

The Cruze lineup in North America is offered in L, LS, LT and Premier – and a more expressive RS package, featuring unique front and rear fascias, rocker panels, rear spoiler, fog lamps and – on the Premier model – 18-inch wheels.

The 2017 Cruze Hatch will be offered in LT and Premier trims, and with the RS package.

KEY FEATURES

  • Segment-exclusive standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility via the MyLink radio systems and available 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot
  • More standard safety features than any other compact car – including Corolla and Civic – with available adaptive features including Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Park Assist
  • Available Teen Driver feature helps support safe driving habits and offers driving statistics for parents
  • Standard 1.4L turbo engine with direct injection and Stop/Start technologies, electric power steering and, on Premier models, a Z-link rear suspension
  • Interior with midsize-level roominess, including two inches greater rear legroom than Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra
  • Available features include a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, Athens leather-appointed seating surfaces, true French seams and halogen projector-beam headlamps with LED signature lighting.

FAST FACTS

  • Cruze is Chevrolet’s best-selling car around the world, with 3.5 million sold since it went on sale in 2008
  • Since Cruze’s introduction, Chevrolet’s retail share of the segment has grown from 5.8 to 9.4 percent
  • 35 percent of Cruze customers are new to Chevrolet
  • In the U.S., Cruze is the segment’s second-best seller to customers under 25.
