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.

Used No Illusion: Used-Car Values Mostly Unaffected by Recalls

Sep 1 2014 9:53am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Every time we see someone in a Chevy Cobalt, we resist the urge to ask them if they’ve made plans to sell it. As it turns out, those folks might still receive a decent return, as owners of these recalled cars—and many other models with highly publicized problems—aren’t dumping them en masse. According to a report from Black Book, a trade publication that estimates residual values, some Cobalts actually increased ...

Porsche 911 Targa

Sep 1 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

Porsche introduced the 911 Targa back in 1967, four years after the regular 911 went on sale. Unlike the coupe, the Targa came with a removable roof section, a full rollbar behind the seats, and a fixed rear window. The Targa name is a registered trademark of Porsche AG, but other manufacturers have used the concept as well, including Ferrari, Dodge, Bugatti or Chevrolet. Targa body styles continued to be offered with mostly each facelift or redesigned 911, although these versions ...
