If you’re looking for proof that the annual SEMA Show is more than just an excuse to spend Halloween in Las Vegas, look no further than the 2013 Chevy Sonic Dusk. First introduced as a concept vehicle for the 2011 SEMA gathering, the tuned-up version of the Sonic sedan was such a showstopper that Chevrolet has now decided to go ahead with full retail production.
“The reaction to the Sonic Dusk concept last year was overwhelmingly positive and proved customers are interested in a more-refined subcompact,” according to Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. He also noted that: “We’re moving quickly to bring Sonic Dusk to Chevrolet showrooms.”
(Although exact timing, and pricing, are both TBD.)
