Chevrolet may not be bringing its full armada of vehicles to the Tokyo Auto Salon, but for an American automaker that’s going halfway around the world, its offerings of two special edition concept vehicles and a limited-edition Camaro is impressive enough on its own right.
One of the aforementioned special-edition vehicles is the Chevrolet Captiva Freedom Rider, a subtly modified Captiva crossover that comes with a black body with baby blue accents on the lower-front bumper, the wheel arches, the door panels, and the set of 20-inch “Gianna Crown” alloy wheels. A new chrome grille was also added, as were new side steps and window surrounds. Judging by the rendering Chevrolet released, the Captiva Freedom Rider appears to also have a roof rack that can hold a full-sized mountain bike.
The Chevrolet Captiva Freedom Rider, together with the Sonic Street Edition and the Camaro Giovanni Edition, will comprise Chevrolet’s participation at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon. It’s not a lot to go by, but these vehicles, including the Captiva Freedom Rider, do have some appealing qualities.
We’ll see if any of them actually hit production in some form.
