Performance is a key selling point for Chevy cars and trucks, and the company has a long history of offering parts and accessories Chevy owners can use to upgrade their vehicles. For 2017, Chevy has released performance additions for the Camaro, Cruze, and Silverado that provide performance boosts such as increased horsepower, better braking, and a stiffer suspension.
Chevy performance part upgrades debuted at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas a few months ago. Some of the highlights include:
- Chevy Camaro – Chevy showered the Camaro with a number of great add-ons, including a suspension system and brakes. The suspension system upgrade includes new springs and dampers that drop the vehicle about three-quarters of an inch and adds larger-diameter stabilizer bars and stiffer suspension links. The upgrade improves the handling of the Camaro, offering a better ride to consumers.The braking system upgrade provides more robust brakes. The new brakes offer six-piston front calipers and bigger rotors for improved performance. The Camaro also offers a number of aesthetic upgrades, including 20-inch wheels, rear spoiler kits, and ground effects kits.
- Chevy Cruze – Chevy provided consumers with a number of ways to beef up the Cruze, Chevrolet’s compact model, offering four new packages. Consumers can purchase a suspension lowering kit, an air intake system, an exhaust system, and a brake kit.The suspension kit offers stiffer springs and a fatter front stabilizer bar to improve the Cruze’s cornering. The air intake system helps bump up the vehicle’s performance, and the exhaust system provides the vehicle with a more athletic, sporty look. The braking upgrade improves the vehicle’s braking capability with a new set of high-tech calipers and rotors with larger diameters.
Cruze owners can also opt for aesthetic upgrades, including 17- and 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, and an interior sport pedal kit, among other accessories.
- Chevrolet Silverado – For Chevy’s popular pick-up truck, Chevy has provided a performance exhaust kit that bumps up the vehicle’s horsepower and gives the vehicle a deep roar that auto enthusiasts will love. Silverado owners can also opt for a cold air intake system that improves cool air charge and minimizes restriction. Silverado owners can also opt for upgrades such as all-weather floor liners, bed rails, sport bars, and off-road lights.These are just a few of the performance parts available from Chevy’s 2017 catalog, which includes in-depth descriptions of these components.
