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.

We inspected the 132 entries at the third annual Halloween Hooptiefest 24 Hours of LeMons on Friday, and today we raced. We saw many bent fenders, many ventilated engine blocks, and more lead changes than we could follow during the course of the day. When the dust settled, though, we were able to sort out all the leaders and runners-up in the three LeMons classes. Here’s what we’ve got. This being the Halloween race, the cars festooned with giant witches-on-brooms and wiggly spider ...
