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.

The mid-size Chevrolet Malibu sedan just emerged in brand-new form for the 2013 model year, but a lot has changed in this model even going into 2014. The reason? It's a tough road in the mid-size class, with a slew of excellent vehicles rising to the top of the category, includin ...

Filed under: SUV, Government/Legal, Safety, Videos, Chevrolet, GM A quick Google search for "danger of heated seats" reveals any number of news stories about burn risks and the potential for damage to the, um, potency, of men. For most of us, though, we know when a heated seat gets too hot. 26-year-old Emma Verrill doesn't have that luxury. Verrill has been a paraplegic since the age of 15, ...

Heavy Hitter: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Curb Weight Leaked

Aug 19 2014 3:35pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Despite its abundant use of lightweight materials throughout its structure and its aero-honed body, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be the heaviest Corvette in history—and not by a little. Thanks to “a friend” of Corvetteblogger.com (who we’re not sure is a true “friend” of GM), the 2015 Corvette ordering guide is now public domain, including previously unknown product information about the Z06. From that document we’ve l ...

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Tested: Nuclear Power, Now at Popular Prices

Aug 19 2014 3:33pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

In the words of Ron Burgundy, “Boy, that escalated quickly.” Back in 2010, Ford was crowing about its 550-hp Shelby GT500. Chevy one-upped that in 2011 with the 580-hp Camaro ZL1. A few months later, Ford didn’t so much leapfrog Chevy as it did stomp its face into the mud as it ran away with its girlfriend and its mother, introducing the 662-horse 2013 GT500. Now Dodge officially ushers in the age of unreason with the 70 ...

2015 Chevrolet Sonic

The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic has by now largely banished the disquieting memories of its predecessor, the inadequate and unloved Chevy Aveo. Now in its fourth model year, the subcompact Sonic five-door hatchback and four-door sedan have acquired their own--far more positive--persona and reputation. The Sonic is nothin ...

Jay Leno keeps on truckin' in a 1967 Chevy C10 restomod from Holley

Aug 19 2014 11:51am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, Classics, Performance, Truck, Videos, Chevrolet, Celebrities Jay Leno doesn't seem like a pickup truck kind of guy. Sure, he may have some appreciation for practically every vehicle on the road, but surely he cares more for some of them a little more than others. Trucks just don't appear to be in his wheelhouse. Still, there's an exception to every rule, and this week he welcomes in the CEO of Holley Performance Produc ...

Built into the Performance Data Recorder, Valet Mode will record video and data while a valet is behind the wheel.

About six months into a relationship is when it happens: you settle into a routine with your significant other and finally begin to notice the way she/he chews cereal or piles dishes in the sink or re-adjusts the rearview mirror. It's not exactly "buyer's remorse", you're just seeing some ...
