There is yellow and then there is Shock Yellow.
We’re still two weeks away from the start of the 2018 SEMA Show, which has become the definitive auto show for all things wild and crazy. Just like its host city, Las Vegas.
Automotive manufacturers routinely roll out one or more special models at SEMA, capitalizing on the massive media attention this event supplies. SEMA isn’t open to the public, but thousands of journalists give it ample coverage, so its almost like you are there.
Shocking 2019 Chevrolet Camaro
GM isn’t waiting for the show to start to tease us with one very special version of the 2019 Chevy Camaro. The Shock yellow exterior color lives up to its name, a can’t miss model that also includes several concept touches.
Those touches include a relocated bow time emblem along with hood and fender graphics.
Joining this special model (which will be available in early 2019) is a personalized Camaro LT convertible. The convertible will be shown in Satin Steel Grey Metallic and feature concept red accents and other accessories. Chevrolet will showcase more than a dozen models in total at this year’s show.
The dazzling Camaro coincides with a fresh look Chevrolet gave to the 2019 Camaro. Explained Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet Car and Crossover Marketing. “It’s the perfect canvas for personalization, and the new Shock color and available accessories demonstrate only some of the possibilities customers have to make the Camaro entirely theirs.”
New Accessories and Performance Parts
The expanded roster of Chevrolet accessories and performance parts were developed by the same designers and engineers who created the Camaro, in an effort to supply coherent design and performance unification.
You’ll find such features as all-new ground effects, a black wing spoiler, a fuel door with exposed carbon-fiber insert, black Camaro fender badges, 50-state-legal cold-air induction kits, Recaro seats, a Brembo six-piston front brake upgrade kit and various 1LE suspension components.
Refreshed Chevy Camaro
The 2019 Camaro refresh features new front-end styling on some models, including the fascia, grille, hood and lighting. The lighting upgrades include dual-element headlamps and new LED signature lighting. The ZL1 trim returns with its airflow optimized front-end styling, while the RS Package provides its own unique headlamps and signature lights.
From the rear, the 2019 Camaro gains new tail lamps with a dual-element design. Red lenses are found on the LS and LT trims, with the RS, SS and ZL1 decked in dark-tinted clear lenses.
Additional changes for 2019 include a new Turbo 1LE model. The Camaro SS now offers a 10-speed automatic transmission with pads shifters, launch control and line lock. Updated wheel designs, the latest in Chevrolet infotainment, an available full-display rearview camera and available forward collision alert round out the changes.
2018 SEMA Show
Auto Trends won’t have a direct presence in Las Vegas this year, but we’ll share highlights and special takes about the 2018 SEMA Show. Word has it that several flamboyant models are on tap, but that’s par for the course in a city that is known for its glitziness.
