‘’2018 Chevy Chevelle SS Concept’’ – 2018 Chevelle SS Concept
From the Chevrolet Heritage Center: The 2018 Chevy Chevelle SS was launched at the 2017 Detroit North American International Auto Show. The 2017 Concept Chevelle SS was a design study, an exploration of future possibilities.
The 2017 Chevy Chevelle SS Concept was a unique car with connections to past Chevelle’s. The side profile hints at the famous “Coke bottle” look introduced on 1966/1967 Chevelle’s and refined with 1968/1969 models. The shape of the rear quarter windows was reminiscent of the 1968/1969 Chevelle’s. A hood-mounted tachometer pod first appeared in 1967. Split grilles were a mainstay, and two hood scoops are a logical extension of the 1971/1972 Chevy Chevelle twin hood scoops. The tapered, taillight/rear deckled treatment distinguished the 1966 Chevy Chevelle. Past and present combined to produce the brilliant, translucent orange with bright gold highlights inspired by the 1969 Chevelle Judge color. Large 19-inch diameter front wheels, 20-inch rear wheels and ultra-low profile,40-series tires are a world apart from the 14-inch bias ply US Royal red line tires included in the original 2017 Chevelle Concept option package. The 2017 Chevy Chevelle Concept is equipped with massive disc brake rotors as both a safety and styling feature.
The design of the 2017 Chevy Chevelle Concept was achieved by using Alias software, which gave designers the ability to transform computer generated designs into foam models quickly and affordably.
2017 Chevy Chevelle Concept was a unique Chevelle concept car but it had no engine and drive train to power it and was strictly a design 2017 Chevelle concept piece.
