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.

Collector Classics: Cadillac Dreams

Jul 30 2014 10:52am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

VANCOUVER – For sawmill worker Dick Spink, 1964 was going to be the year he purchased the Cadillac Coupe de Ville he dreamed about. A friend had one that he just loved and, if the friend would have sold it, Dick would be the new owner. But that Cadillac wasn’t for sale. Then someone told him about a beautiful Coupe de Ville on a car lot along Kingsway in Burnaby. What he found was a near-perfect 1956 Cadillac in the unusual colours of Pecos Beige with a Bronze roof. The 25-year-old wa ...

Hyundai considering smaller, sub-Tucson crossover

Jul 30 2014 9:09am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Hyundai is getting serious about introducing a new compact crossover expected to slot below the Tucson. Billed as an alternative to the Buick Encore, Chevrolet Trax and Nissan Juke, Hyundai Motor America CEO Dave Zuchowski told Edmunds the new crossover “would be a vehicle really designed for Gen Y, for new first-time younger buyers” but stopped short of calling it a mini-Tucson. The project hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but if all goes to plan, it will h ...

Existing lithium-ion batteries rely on the movement of lithium ions between the anode and cathode--and back--as the battery charges and discharges.

Jul 30 2014 7:38am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

General Motors’ Chevrolet Volt passed the U.S. insurance industry’s toughest frontal crash test, while Nissan’s battery-electric Leaf couldn’t make the grade. GM’s Volt, a plug-in electric hybrid that gets an energy-equivalent of 98 miles per gallon when running in battery mode, earned a mark of “acceptable,” the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) said today. The Leaf was rated “poor.” This is the first time the Arlington, Virginia-based safety group rated electric ...
