Chevrolet played it low-key with its first of assumed many concept vehicles coming to the 2016 SEMA Show in a few short weeks, revealing the Chevrolet Cruze RS hatch Blue Line Concept and Chevrolet Malibu Blue Line Concept.
Debuting with the Cruze RS hatch Blue Line are a performance brake package, air intake system and exhaust system. Each package stems from official Chevrolet Performance accessories and will not void any warranty.
The performance brake kit will arrive for the Cruze by the end of 2016, bringing 11.8-inch-diameter front Duralife vented and slotted rotors and new calipers versus the stock 10.9-inch rotors for added stopping power.
As for the performance intake system, a high-flow air filter and a secondary inlet duct are present to decrease air restriction. The performance exhaust also keeps things flowing and reduces backpressure, allowing the engine to breathe better.
Both the performance air and exhaust system will arrive in mid-2017, according to Chevrolet, effectively adding a little more grunt to the Cruze hatch’s modest performance offering.
