Allow us to be the first to extend our condolences to our friends to the north. General Motors has announced the 2014 Chevrolet SS will not be available in Canada. The Globe and Mail reports the automaker has confirmed the high-performance sedan won't hit Canadian dealers, though GM hasn't offered up any reasoning as to why that is.

Buyers here in the US of A, meanwhile, can look forward to getting their hands on the 415-horspower, rear-wheel drive SS by late summer. Something tells us it won't be long after that before Canadian officials start seeing individually imported 6.2-liter V8 four-doors in their neighborhoods. Fortunately, Canadian buyers will still be able to take home the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. The C7 bowed at the Canadian International Auto Show last week, reportedly drawing sizable crowds and interest.

      Gas is much more expensive here in Canada (especially in Quebec), which is why we get the Orlando (unfortunately) and the Trax.

        Yes. The G8 is what ruined Pontiac. They really should have stuck to making Sunbirds and Azteks. /sarcasm

        @ Reggie - I suggest you don't make comments when you have no clue what you are talking about. A niche product like the G8 does not 'bring down' an entire division. Pontiac (and Saturn for that matter) outsold many, many brands in the US. The issue was that they mostly shared the same products with other GM divisions, increasing engineering and marketing costs and competing with each other on pricing in many segments - i.e. in 2009, the Chevy Malibu, Saturn Aura and Pontiac G6 were all identical under the skin. Some configurations were unique to each brand - the Saturn Aura with the base engine had a six speed auto with shift paddles - no four cylinders in Malibu or G6 had six speeds, only four speeds autos, for example. They were shut down to reduce the number of shared products, eliminate engineering and marketing costs - not because they weren't selling. Now if you want to provide info about European cars that we don't have here, you may have some valid input - here, not so much!

        Wait, you sure it won\'t be sold in the U.K. as a Vauxhall VXR8?

      Because Canadians don't have a need for another oversized gas guzzling ugly vehicle. And Americans, regardless of their complaints, have cheap gas.

      OK, this may not be a popular thing to say, but this car looks extremely boring. Anyone remember the Pontiac G8? or how bout the GTO? They were boring cars that had all this horse power and horrible performance numbers. I cannot believe (actually I can) that GM is bringing out such a boring design.

      Canadians are too timid for this kind of horsepower, even if it is a GM. However, I DO think Canada should build an Autobahn from Toronto to Calgary.

          I lived in Toronto for 2 years. The downside is you're right: I only met 6 actual Canadians. The upside: they were all timid.

      I don't think GM will be selling too many of them in the States either...

        GM only estimates 10,000 units or so in a year, that is actually alot for "halo" car.

      GM is full of old people with a set mindset and a sense of entitlement. I think firing the last CEO was half ass. If I were bailing out a company, I would've fired all of the top brass and started an open invitation for upper execs,designers, material/parts purchasers and marketing team. Make them submit ideas and strategies (of course resume) to revamp the company and better its budget(s). My goal would be to make better cars with better designs and increase the quality of the brand. FIRE THOSE OLD FARTS AT GM.

        You could work on the amount of duplicate paperwork in GM too. You know exact copies of the same thing repeatedly sent.

      No big loss, just a slight refresh of a 2006 Holden model they already could have bought as the Pontiac G8

      Don\'t worry. It won\'t sell in the US either, not if its an automatic for over $40K
