A number of Chevrolet concept cars and pickup trucks reportedly being readied for next month’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas are said to be in jeopardy due to the ongoing UAW strike.
Muscle Cars and Trucks claims to have received word from one source that various parts required for certain projects are not available because of the strikes. In addition, various teams required to construct the vehicles are nowhere to be found as they’re involved in the strikes.
“It’s too early to speculate on production timing impacts of any of our SEMA builds due to the UAW work stoppage,” a GM spokesperson said in a statement but with the strike now entering its fourth week, it seems inevitable that some impacts will be felt.
One of the most important vehicles from General Motors bound for SEMA is the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 recently unveiled online. It is understood that GM may have been planning a number of special edition models and concepts for the event. In addition, many expected Chevrolet to unveil various performance parts and accessories for the 2020 Silverado HD pickup and the new 2020 Corvette Stingray at SEMA.
It is also speculated that Chevrolet’s SEMA Design Award contest, where builders are recognized for their builds around Chevrolet vehicles, could be in jeopardy if these builders are unable to source the various parts they need for their respective projects.
This year’s SEMA Show kicks off on November 5 and while there may be a shortage of GM models, modified 2020 Toyota Supras should be in abundance.
