General Motors waited for the dust to settle on the new Corvette and then hit us with yet another exciting new product, the Chevrolet SS performance sedan. This car is the first high-power rear-drive four-door sedan Chevy has made since 1966, and it’s been given the legendary ‘SS’ badge. So it must be something special.
The car shares its underpinnings with the Australian Holden Commodore, but it’s got a massive LS3 engine with 415 horsepower. Anything with that much power and rear-wheel-drive is OK in our book!
Check out the car’s unveiling ceremony at the Daytona race track:
“The Chevrolet brand was largely built on the strength of rear-drive performance sedans, yet it’s been 17 years since we’ve offered one,” said Mark Reuss, president of General Motors North America. “The all-new Chevrolet SS fills that void and fills it better than any other vehicle in the brand’s rich history. The comfort, convenience, spaciousness and V-8 power make the SS a total performance package unlike any other on the road today.”
The Chevrolet SS benefits from the proven, race-tested, global rear-wheel drive architecture that is the foundation for the Camaro, Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle and Holden’s VF Commodore. More details can be found here: 2014 Chevrolet SS
