Assigned RPO Code PDZ, the Blackout Package for the 2019 Chevy Volt was added for the 2018 model year as a Limited Production Option (LPO), which means that it is comprised of official accessory-level Chevrolet parts installed onto the vehicle by the dealer.
Now then, here’s what the package includes:
- Front and rear Black bowtie emblems (SFZ; LPO-level item)
- 17-inch split 5-spoke aluminum wheels with ultra-bright machined finish with painted gloss black pockets (SJH; LPO-level item)
- Sport pedal kit (SBZ)
Pricing & Availability
The package is a $1,995 option that is available on both of the 2019 Chevy Volt trim levels – LT and Premier.
The package is not available (during the order process) with the wheel lock kit (SFE, LPO item) or individually with any of the features included in the package.
The GM Authority Take
Though it’s nice to see some personalization options for the 2019 Volt, we don’t think the package goes far enough.
For instance, an option called the Blackout Package should literally “black out” the bright elements on any vehicle on which it’s offered. In the case of the Volt, those bits include the chrome window moldings, the shiny grille and the Volt lettering on the liftback. This package does not do that, making it somewhat incomplete.
So while the idea behind the package is sound, the execution falls short.
