Chevrolet didn’t steal the 2016 SEMA Show, but it certainly grabbed a good portion of the spotlight. While other automakers spent their time designing and engineering power-packed vehicles and custom creations that won’t see the public market, Chevrolet went another way. Chevrolet’s Blue Line concepts turned heads for plenty of reasons. Best of all, most of the upgrades made to the Blue Line vehicles will be available to the public by mid-2017.
The Cruze Hatch RS, a sportier version of the Cruze hatchback, took center stage with its Genesis White paint and Slate Blue Metallic wheels. The chrome grille was one of a few cosmetic changes.

The Cruze Hatch RS included a few performance upgrades that visitors couldn’t see. A lowered suspension, performance brakes, and a new intake and exhaust system made the short list. All of the upgrades will be available to the public by mid-2017, if they aren’t already.
Chevrolet also brought a Malibu Blue Line concept to the 2016 SEMA Show. Like its smaller sibling, the Malibu Blue Line concept saw a Genesis White paintjob and Slate Blue Metallic wheels. Unlike the Cruze Hatch RS, the Malibu also saw a blacked-out grille insert, bowtie badging, and illuminated doorsills, to name a few changes.
