As a result of this, the regular production models of the SS will have an LS 3, 6.2 liter V8 engine under the hood that produces a lot of babbling, a 6L 80 six speed automatic with standard paddle shifters (Motor Trend has mentioned that there is a possibility for the new, 2015 version to come with a 6 speed manual). It produces 415 HP and also 415 pounds feet of torque and the acceleration from 0 to 60 for 5.0 seconds. It has Brembo brakes installed with a 14 inch front and 12.8 inch rear rotors and 4 piston fixed front calipers and a big 19 inch forged wheels with a Bridgestone tires measuring 245/40 at the front and 275/35 at the rear. And as it is expected, it has a daytime LED running lights.
In the series production, SS comes very well equipped with the cutting edge infotainment system, stitched leather trim, HID headlamps, newest system for collision warning and for the first time on a Chevy model, an electronic application for automatic parking assist. And all of these commodities are not coming cheap, that’s for sure. It has a starting price of 43 475 $ and on top of that, there is a special greeting card for gas guzzler tax. All that 8 cylinder adrenalin rush, direct injection, variable valve timing adds more dollars on the check.
How should we finish this article about the new 2014 Chevrolet SS? Yes, it is both fast and comfortable but don’t bet that you will gain more rush or power than if you get in SRT 300, or a Corvette. The SS is kind of a model that is best suited for someone who wants a real sports car, but has to go down for one level to satisfy domestic, family needs. I hope you will enjoy it.
