The all-new 2014 Chevrolet SS is a muscle sedan that is based on the platform of the Holden Commodore SS (the flagship sedan from GM’s Australian division) which in its previous generation version was the basis of the Pontiac G8 in the U.S. The SS is the first performance-driven rear-wheel drive sedan for Chevrolet in 17 years. The logo “SS” (Super Sport) used up to now to identify performance versions of Chevy’s models (like Impala, Camaro or Corvette), has now become an independent model. Also the SS will be the nameplate used by Chevrolet on NASCAR tracks nationwide.
The all-new 2014 Chevrolet SS comes with roomy rear seats, sporty handling and a powerful V8 engine. The LS3 6.2-liter V8 engine (a version of the V8 engine on Corvette) produces 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque and it is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The SS sprints to 60 mph in five seconds.
The 2014 Chevy SS comes standard with leather upholstery, premium soft-touch interior materials, a nine-speaker Bose sound system, 19-inch wheels with ventilated brembo disc brakes, push-button start, a full-color touchscreen, blind-spot detector, automatic parking assist (the SS is the first Chevy with this system), LED running lights and Lane Departure Warning system.
The 2014 Chevy SS comes standard with ten airbags, including knee, side-impact and head curtain airbags. Other standard safety features include Forward Collision Alert, Electronic Stability Control (StabiliTrack) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The 2014 Chevrolet SS competes on the market with Dodge Charger SRT8, Ford Taurus SHO and Cadillac CTS-V.
