Chevy is planning to take full advantage of the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, with a long list of debuts. First up is the production version of the sexy-looking Camaro Convertible, which has been shown in concept form and isn’t likely to get many (if any) changes. Expect the same sort of power plants to be available as with the coupe.
The second big debut will be the all-new Aveo, which is expected to arrive in hot-hatch RS trim first. No details were given, but expect the RS model to feature some nice aluminum wheels and some extra aero bits to spice it up. It’s also likely that under the hood we’ll find Chevy’s new 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder EcoTec engine that Chevy first showed at the LA show just a few weeks ago in the all-new Cruze. It makes 138-hp and 148 ft-lbs of torque, while getting 40 mpg on the highway, so it looks like the Aveo might just be a real Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit competitor in the future.
In addition, Chevy is likely to show an updated version of its Orlando MPV, although this isn’t likely to be a full production model yet. Chevrolet has also announced that an all-new Malibu is due out for 2012 and that the Spark will in fact launch in North America in 2011 (despite rumors that it wasn’t going to see U.S. shores).
