At this year's Bangkok International Motorshow, Chevrolet will be unveiling a virtual reality experience that's being called 'CoDriver.'

Rather than getting behind the wheel of a Chevrolet, people are given the chance to take a passenger seat and enjoy the rugged terrain and river crossings during an adventurous mission up a New Zealand mountain. The Oculus Rift experience takes place within a simulation model of the Colorado High Country car, which vibrates at some parts of the journey when the road gets bumpy. Despite being a simulation, there is authenticity to it, since the footage was captured with a camera mounted on a real Chevrolet Colorado.

Since this experience puts an emphasis on how the vehicle can handle off-road terrain versus the speed of the car, this virtual experience is a clever way to let people sit back and take in the scenery, seemingly from inside a Chevrolet.
