Chevrolet Planning Over A Dozen SEMA Entries, Teases Something Big for Tomorrow

Chevrolet Performance says Something Big coming

  • Chevy bringing more than 12 concepts and personalized models to November SEMA show

  • Will award 4 prizes to top-judged Chevrolets


After a year off because of the shambles that was all of 2020, Chevrolet is planning on coming back to the SEMA show in a big way. More than a dozen concept and personalized vehicles will be part of the brand’s display booth. The automaker will also be giving out design awards in four different categories.

Chevrolet Performance is also teasing something that is going to arrive much sooner. Tomorrow, in fact. And though it looks to be a drag racer. It’s not another electric dragster like the E-Copo Camaro of a few years back.

Chevrolet’s teaser ad says “something big is coming” on July 30th, and if you’re reading this on the day of publication, that is tomorrow. All we see is a nose view of a drag strip’s Christmas tree that changes to a rear view on launch.

Which sounds like a new crate engine. Possibly something aimed directly at the Mopar Hellephant V8 and the Megazilla 7.3L big block that Ford is preparing to launch, both of which are capable of well over 1,000 hp. A new big block in the days of electrification is an interesting choice, but drag racers (and other go-fast die-hards) aren’t necessarily ready for the change just yet.

Back to SEMA, the aftermarket manufacturer show set for this November in Las Vegas. Chevrolet will have its designers judging winners in four classes, awarding the Chevy SEMA Car of the Year, Chevy SEMA Truck of the Year, Innovative Use of Technology, and Designer’s Choice. The winners do have to be Chevrolets, though all GM and non-competitor electric powertrains are allowed.
