Is the Holden Commodore SS V the next Chevrolet SS

Official Chevrolet SS reveals set for this weekend

While the sports car and musclecar fan in me yearns for a two door coupe with lots of horsepower and good handling, the practical side of me knows that as an adult with kids I really need four doors. There are several sports cars out there that have four-doors, but more is always better.

Chevrolet is set to unveil its new SS this weekend and we know will be a rear-wheel drive sports sedan. Considering Chevrolet and the Australian company Holden are siblings and Holden just unveiled the Commodore SS V, odds are this slick orange Australian muscle car will be the Chevrolet SS.

Details are scant on the Chevrolet SS and the Holden SS V at this point. Other than these photographs we don't really know anything about vehicle. What size engine the vehicle we use remains unknown but with the unveiling of the Chevrolet SS set for this weekend hopefully all of those details will be forthcoming. This appears to be a big car, it would be nice if it came with a V-8 engine. I can certainly see Chevrolet shoehorning the V8 out of the Camaro under the hood.

Ford readying dozen+ Mustang models for SEMA

Oct 22 2014 3:05pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Coupe, Performance, Ford Ford is unsurprisingly bringing a herd of its new 2015 Mustang models to next month's SEMA show in Las Vegas. Over a dozen of them are arriving from top aftermarket outfits like Galpin Auto Sports, Steeda, Roush and others. The Blue Oval isn't just shining a spotlight on the V8 model, though. The new EcoBoost 2.3-liter version with 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque is also getting its time in th ...

Dodge Viper $15,000 Price Cut Boosts Monthly Sales by Nearly 200 Percent—to 108 Cars

Oct 22 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Last month’s decision by Dodge to slash prices on the face-melting Viper by $15,000 seems to be paying huge dividends: Sales of the car jumped by 184 percent in September. That doesn’t mean you’ll be seeing Dodge’s V-10 brute on every street corner, though. That huge percentage jump translates to 108 Vipers sold in September, up from 38 in August. The Viper has never been intended to sell in huge numbers, but 2014 has not been kind to the M ...

The totally weird and wacky cars of ‘LeMons’

Oct 22 2014 12:51pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

“I have a lot of bad ideas, all the time. This was one of many.” So, how best to describe the twenty-four hours of LeMons? That’s “LeMons,” by the way, not “LeMans.” The latter is a prestigious endurance race with a hundred-year history; the former is basically a good way to end up with tetanus and (despite the citrus-theme) possibly scurvy. It’s Burning Man meets SCCA event meets Death Race 2000. It’s Mad Ma ...

Front-facing child seats give us a new perspective on safety

Oct 22 2014 8:18am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

A little while ago, I decided to change my daughter’s outlook on life. Instead of looking where we had been, she would now see where we were going. She had grown up enough. It was time. I turned her car seat around. So what, big deal, ya wanna medal or something? Well, I feel like it was rather a big deal actually. Not the actual physical act of strapping her La-Z-Boy-sized forward-facing seat into the car – although ow, my spine! – but the com ...
