Chevrolet is bringing three nearly production-ready versions of its flashy 2011 Camaro to the SEMA show, which begins this week.
This year's SEMA show will serve as the launch of Chevrolet's new 2011 Synergy Series Camaro. Remember the bright-green V-6 2010 Camaro Synergy edition? Every year, Chevy will release a new Synergy special-edition Camaro.
The difference for the 2011 car is that you can now choose the V-8 as well as the V-6. Four exterior colors will be offered: Cyber Gray, Victory Red, Summit White, and Black.
What sets the Synergy Camaro apart from an ordinary 2011 Camaro is the exclusive gray interior with red accent stitching. The 2011 Camaro Synergy Series, Chevy says, will provide a mix of exterior and interior accessories not available on other models.
The Synergy show car will sport 21-inch silver-painted wheels -- optional on the production cars -- and a ground effects package you'll find on the showroom Synergy Camaros. The Pedders lowering kit is a licensed Camaro accessory, but it isn't included in the real Synergy edition. Get your own 2011 Synergy Camaro in the first half of 2011.
With the Red Flash Camaro show car, Chevy's mission was clear: make the Camaro as visually arresting as possible. Gray strips are placed atop the Red Jewel color and, of course, 21-inch wheels fill the wheel wells. A Chevrolet Accessory air intake kit and exhaust kit make clear this Camaro has show and go.
Inside, there's a flat-bottom steering wheel and red LED lighting in the door trim. Power comes from a 6.2-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The most affordable of the street-ready Camaros is the unimaginatively named XM/Accessory appearance package.
"Our intent was to create a special, customized model -- including 21-inch wheels -- that could be had for around $30,000," said Russ Clark, director of Chevrolet product marketing.
With that in mind, it shouldn't be a surprise that this Camaro is a V-6 model with black cloth seats. A rear spoiler, unique grille, and 21-inch wheels are included in the package, which will be available in production form in the spring of 2011.
One year of XM satellite radio is also part of the deal whereas other Camaros only have a three-month trial period. The XM/Accessory appearance package Camaro you see here also has concept car details you won't see on the production model. That includes a cold air intake system and a Chevrolet Accessory interior trim kit in Silver Ice.
Which, if any, of these three Camaros would you be willing to claim as your own?
