The Chevrolet FNR-X concept was revealed recently at Auto Shanghai, and this crossover blew away auto experts. The FNR-X has the build of a crossover, but its aggressive front-end is reminiscent of the Camaro, and its sleek styling makes it one of the coolest crossover concepts we’ve ever seen.
The FNR-X is a plug-in hybrid, and with its stunning looks and high-tech design, Chevy promises features to match. Chevy calls the FNR-X an “all-purpose sports concept vehicle,” the FNR-X is much closer to being a production model than the FNR concept it debuted at the 2015 Auto Shanghai. Chevy produced both the FNR and the FNR-X in conjunction with the Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center. FNR stands for “Find New Roads.”
The FNR-X features dynamic digital LED headlights, a gold bowtie emblem, active grille shutters, and rear-hinged doors that can be controlled automatically. It even replaces the mirrors with high-tech cameras for better, more reliable visibility, and side skirts that move when you change driving mode.
The FNR-X’s interior is also luxurious, with high-tech fabrics and a sport steering wheel, but there’s not much more we know about it yet. Find out more about the FNR-X concept or Chevy’s other concept cars at Buff Whelan Chevrolet!
General Motors is rolling with the “go big or go home” motto when it comes to the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. It wasn’t long ago that Chevrolet revealed the Camaro ZL1 1LE performance model, but now the American automaker is upping the ante. The new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is a racing model designed to compete with the best of the best.
The new Camaro GT4.R is the first GT customer car from General Motors that’s available to the global market. Chevrolet joined forces with Pratt & Miller to create the track-ready model. The GT4 build means it can take to the track in the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenges Grant Sport class and Pirelli World Challenge’s GTS class.
“The Camaro GT4.R is a true racing customer car that Chevrolet is proud to support,” said Shawn Meagher, Chevrolet’s Program Manager for the Camaro GT4.R.
Under the hood of the Camaro GT4.R lies a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers a heart-pounding 650 hp. It comes perfectly complemented with Brembo brakes, adjustable traction control, and much more.
The track-oriented model is set to make its official debut at the Pirelli World Challenge. Two Camaro GT4.Rs will take the track with Tony Gaples and Lawson Aschenback behind the wheels.
We here at Buff Whelan Chevrolet are pumped to see the new Camaro GT4.R up close!
The Chevrolet Redline special edition series was announced recently at the Chicago Auto Show, where Chevy showed the nine vehicles that would be available with the Redline package. Initially introduced in 2015 at the SEMA Show on just the Silverado 1500, Chevy has now expanded it to the majority of its lineup.
The Redline series is an exterior package that adds “an urban, street-smart look” to your vehicle. Redline vehicles come with red stripes on black wheels for a distinctive appearance, plus black grilles and a black bowtie emblem. Each vehicle has different accents to make it unique.
The Redline special edition will be available on the Cruze LT in both sedan and hatchback, the Malibu LT, the Camaro LT and SS trims in both coupe and convertible, the Trax LT, the Equinox LT, the Traverse Premier, the Colorado LT, and the Silverado LT Z71 in both crew and double cabs.
The Redline special edition rolls out with the 2017 model year, so if you love the idea of this sporty, individualistic styling package, you’re in luck. Just give us a call or stop by today at Buff Whelan Chevrolet and we’ll be happy to get you into a new Chevy Redline!
