Based on the Holden VF Commodore, the revived 2014 Chevrolet SS is a performance-oriented full size sedan that GM hopes will fill the void of the Pontiac G8. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 415 hp, the SS can achieve 0-60 in five seconds. Standard RWD is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, equipped with TAPshift, enabling an EPA estimated14 mpg city and 21 mpg highway. Features include integrated HID/LED headlamps, Brembo brakes, 19-inch wheels, Chevrolet MyLink, intelligent key fob allowing for passive entry and a push button start, automatic parking assist, driver information center, heads-up display, and leather-appointed performance seats. Safety is comprised of advanced airbags, anti-lock braking (ABS), Stabilitrak electronic stability control, limited slip differential, tire pressure monitoring (TPMS). The SS is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
The Chevrolet SS is new for 2014. It is a sports sedan that brings a powerful V8, sporty handling and lots of technology at a surprisingly low price point.
Understated, classy styling; standard V8 performance; room for 5; impressive standard tech features
The Chevrolet SS aims for luxury sport sedans from Europe like BMW and Mercedes. In pursuit of this goal, the SS features understated handsome looks, a standard 415-hp V8 engine and a classy, leather-covered interior. Chrysler's 300 SRT8 is rear-wheel drive for similar money, but doesn't come with standard leather seats, navigation, heads-up display or HID headlamps. BMW's 550i offers a powerful V8 in a brilliant rear-wheel drive chassis, but it starts at $19,000 more than the SS. The Chevrolet SS brings impressive performance and an outstanding standard feature list for less money than the competition.
