Chevrolet Unveils the 2014 SS

Feb 18 2013, 10:51am CST | by

No manual transmission option

I'll admit to being rather excited to see what Chevrolet was going to unveil for the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan. Now that the car is official, I can say that it looks pretty good. It also appears to be a large and heavy automobile and only has 415 hp. I say only because Ford produces the same power from the 5.0-liter V8 engine.

The Chevrolet SS uses a 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine. Another problem I have with the new vehicle is that you can only get it with an automatic transmission. The automatic transmission has six-speeds and allows users to select gears manually using steering wheel paddles. Chevrolet claims the vehicle will hit 60 mph in about 5 seconds.

The car is based on the Holden VF Commodore. The vehicle is expected to go on sale in late 2013 starting in high $30,000 range, but official pricing is unannounced. I'd wager a modestly equipped SS will be well into the $40,000 range putting it out of the reach of most buyers who might be interested in the car.

Chevy Trax to start at $20,120*

Filed under: Car Buying, Crossover, Chevrolet The Chevrolet Trax is the slightly more meat-and-potatoes cousin to the Buick Encore, with the same platform and engine underneath but a touch less luxury. The little compact crossover is on its way to US dealers in January 2015, and Chevy is finally announcing the base price for this runabout CUV at $20,120 (*plus $875 for destination) when it goes on sale. That' ...

GM Announces Performance Times for 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Oct 1 2014 1:58pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

We spend a lot of time at Cars.com dissecting the practicalities of SUVs and family sedans, but sometimes track numbers are just too overthetop to go unshared. We’re at the Midwest Automotive Media Association’s fall rally in Joliet, Ill., and GM just laid down some astonishing numbers on the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The 650-horsepower, supercharged Z06 hits 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and scorches the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds — with the manual transmission. With the autom ...

Top 10 Best-Selling Cars: September 2014

Oct 1 2014 1:43pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

The kids went back to school, the leaves began to change colors and car shoppers in September sent new-car sales from the largest seven automakers up about 10 percent versus a depressed September 2013. That made for some significant reshuffling in the top 10 sellers. As Toyota Camry shoppers await the updated 2015 model, the Honda Accord spent its second month as America's best-selling sedan, and the Ford Escape broke in to the top 10 sellers for the first time since March 2014. Rel ...

GM has officially detailed performance specs of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and just as we expected, its supercharged 6.2-litre V8 is quite fast.

Chevrolet has announced its official performance estimates for the 2015 Corvette Z06, and, uh, they don’t disappoint. The best numbers were obtained using Z06 coupes equipped with the new eight-speed automatic transmission and the Z07 performance package, which adds Brembo carbon-ceramic brake rotors, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and the most spoilertastic and downforce-enabling aero bits available on the Z06.
