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.

How To Ruin A Corvette Stingray, By SEMA And The KISS Frontman

Nov 4 2014 8:45pm CST | Source: Jalopnik

I think the show cars from SEMA only really work when they go all-in. The ridiculous shaggin' wagon and sword-filled concepts from Scion? You're doing it right! The ultra-conservative paint jobs on the Chevrolet cars ? You're doin ...

SEMA: 2015 Chevrolet COPO Camaro is the king of our quarter-mile dreams

Nov 4 2014 7:01pm CST | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Motorsports, SEMA Show, Coupe, Chevrolet, Racing, Autoblog Black Chevy introduced the fourth generation of its COPO Camaro at the SEMA show today; another limited run muscle car that should set drag racing fans' mouths to salivating. Just 69 examples of the 2015 COPO will be built (the same as the first three runs of the car), with customers able to choose between 350-, 396 -and 427-cubic-inch naturally aspirated V8 engines, or a supercharged 350. The car on the show ...

SEMA: Chevrolet gives us a Sonic for show and one for go

Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Hatchback, Chevrolet Amongst the treasure trove of tuning that Chevrolet has brought to SEMA this year, this pair of Sonic hatches is perhaps the most accessible. With one car tweaked for show and the other go, both halves of the SEMA ethos are nicely represented.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible: First Test Numbers with GM’s In-House Octo-cog Automatic

Nov 4 2014 3:28pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

No sports car should have chrome wheels. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible you see here does. It also has an automatic transmission, GM’s new in-house designed and -built eight-speed unit, which replaces last year’s six-cog piece carried over from the C6 Corvette. The new transmission has two things going for it: First, it has more speeds in an era where more is more, and second, ordering it doesn’t require those shiny rollers. READ MORE ›› ...

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet When a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum opened up in Bowling Green, KY and gobbled up eight important examples of the American sports car in February, videos almost made it look like the hole picked the perfect spot to do the most damage to as many vehicles as possible. None of the cars made it away unharmed, but some were luckier than others. The Skydome s ...

Love Guns: Jimmie Johnson’s SEMA Corvette Is More KISS-tastic than Paul Stanley’s

Nov 4 2014 2:52pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

It’s not SEMA without eleventy-jillion styles of rolling stock, booths stocked with scantily-clad ladies who may or may not have other gigs in the Las Vegas “hospitality” industry, and, of course, good old Yankee V-8 power. The last item is, after all, the fundament upon which the show was founded in 1967. An era before VTEC. Hell, it was an era before CVCC. Thusly, at the intersection of the Chevy small-block, NASCAR, and good ol’ fashioned Sin City glitz, we find Paul S ...

Jimmie Johnson's '71 Corvette Has A New Stingray V8 And It's So Badass

Just when I think General Motors' SEMA offerings will be total duds this year, they go and totally redeem themselves with a very badass 1971 Corvette powered by a brand new LT1 crate motor from a modern Corvette Stingray . It's for Jimmie Johnson, a man who knows more than a little bit about speed.R ...
