Community Question: Which Chevrolet Red Line Concept Is Your Favorite?9
Chevrolet dropped the word it will be bringing a bundle of concept vehicles to the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas next month, all wearing the same “Red Line” designation.
The Red Line concept vehicle treatments has been applied to the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, 2016 Chevrolet Colorado and 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, so we’re here to ask which one tickles your fancy most?
The star of the Red Line concept vehicles will no doubt be the 2016 Camaro, looking edgy in its bespoke paint hue with a handful of concept Chevrolet accessories to boot. But, if we had to pick a runner up, the 2016 Colorado Red Line concept wears its new duds very well, too. Especially the custom wheels combined with the beefy rubber they’re wrapped in.
The 2016 Malibu Red Line also wears its goodies surprisingly well, not looking like an AutoZone shopping spree tacked on to a mundane sedan, with the red accents hitting well in all the right places.
Finally, the 2016 Silverado Red Line receives the same treatment, though, it sits as our least favorite of the bunch, showed up by little-brother Colorado. The 2016 Colorado Red Line looks too good, veering our eyes away from Chevrolet’s staple pickup.
The wildcard here is the 2016 Chevrolet Spark RS concept. It doesn’t receive the same Red Line treatment, but it looks mighty good with its tasteful accessories, lower ride height and C7 Corvette inspired wheels.
Chevrolet noted it will gauge public opinion on how each concept is received, with more emphasis placed on the 2016 Spark RS concept. And what better way to show which one you’re loving than in our poll down below?

They all make me yawn as sema concepts.
Kind of agree. Not any of them look horrible or anything, just to much show and not enough go for my liking .
What Mark said. Every single one is a snooze fest. At Sema these will not even be forgotten. They will be invisible.
Well you have to consider some things here.
#1 These are less crazy show car that will never be built vs. special editions that may be available as soon as the first of the year less the lowered suspensions. For most intents these are production cars that we may see in the Camaro and Trucks and if the others play well they may make production too.
#2 GM has many other private companies doing custom one off versions of their trucks and cars that will be shown as the event arrives. GM took the production angle as they have the last several years and the wow cars are left to the dedicated builders they approached for the show cars. It is SEMA and that aftermarket is what this is really about and that is why they let the aftermarket show what they can do.
These are just the first Camaro and Colorado you will see as there will be more than a dozen of each done up for the show by people GM is working with for aftermarket parts.
GM’s Interest here is in selling special editions as they have for the last few years making good profits off of them. Just look at the number sold and the price out the door on the full size trucks they have sold just in the last two years.
I have the paint and decal cars but when it comes to making money only a fool would not appreciate what they are doing for GM.
Lets see the hands of SEMA members here? I have mine up!
In my opinion the Camaro does not need it. The Malibu and the Colorado on the other hand look extremely smart in Red Line. Forget the Silverado…
But what about the Volt Red Line RS?
Bits of red throughout? A paint job that looks far more interesting with the shadowing and reflection of a rendered drawing? Some “drop” on each of the cars to reduce fender gap.
The Silverado looks the “worst”, only because the artist didn’t go as crazy with the shadows in the rendering on the side sheet metal, and then the wheel/fender gap remains as current.
At least the mostly forgottten Saturn “Red Line” designation meant something different under the hood for the Sky and other vehicles, and not just a couple red hash marks on the wheels.
Actually, the Saturn designation was “Redline” – as in a vehicle’s engine RPM limit, and this is “Red Line” – as in a line that is red (noun vs adjective + noun).
