2014 Chevrolet SS

Not everyone is an automobile enthusiast, but for the most part, those who possess valid driver's licenses are usually able to differentiate between a performance car and a luxury car. Furthermore, they are usually capable of telling approximately how old a car is based on its styling. But not with the 2014 Chevrolet SS. Even as its true devotees acknowledge the sedan's Pontiac GTO and Pontiac G8 ancestors while hoping that GM's latest will finally earn the merit and recognition it deserves, this made-in-Australia model is a real head scratcher to most. The low volume, rear-wheel... Read More

    Video: Chevy SS pace car catches fire at Daytona
    1392595620

    All things considered, it's a pretty rare sight to see a stock car catch fire during a NASCAR race, but it happens. The racing can get pretty rough, after all, and they are powered by combustion engines – some of the most rudimentary still around, at that. But the pace car? Now that's another story. What's known in other racing disciplines as the ...

    Hennessey has a proud history of tuning high-performance machinery from General Motors and taxing it out onto Grand Parkway, a new stretch of toll road on the outskirts of Houston, Texas. That's what it did with the Cadillac CTS-V, spooling its twin turbochargers until it cracked 220 miles per hour. It did the same with the Corvette Stingray, feeding it ...

    As the year of 1972 was drawing to a close, my father had finally saved up enough money to buy himself his first new car, and his heart was set on a Chevrolet Chevelle SS. And no wonder – the midsize Chevy Super Sport had earned a reputation for performance with rugged good looks to match. Its twin stripes and domed hood hid a 402-cubic-inch V8 ...

    With the influx of all the new products from Chevrolet this year, Callaway has its hands full trying to keep up.

    Report: Chevy could offer hotter SS if there's demand

    When the Chevy SS hits showrooms in the coming months, it will only be offered with one powertrain choice – a 415-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 and a six-speed automatic transmission – with just five colors to choose from and two options. That's it. And we should be happy for it. Chevrolet is reportedly intent on keeping things simple, projecting ...

    SEMA: Jeff Gordon's SS Performance Sedan Concept unleashes car's potential
    1383693660

    Compared to the stock Chevrolet SS sports sedan, Jeff Gordon's version looks much meaner (in a good way). Somehow it comes off as more butch than the upgrades would suggest, almost as if it has a wide-body kit (compare the Chevrolet Jeff Gordon SS Performance Sedan Concept to the near-production car). But Chevy says that the exterior upgrades are limited ...

    Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway.

    With the first examples of the 2014 Chevrolet SS already in production in Australia, Edmunds says that dealer allocation of these high-performance sedans will be severely limited when the cars hit the US in December. Only around 900 of the sedans are coming in the first shipment, and there are roughly 3,000 Chevrolet dealers in the US, so the math doesn't ...

    One of the biggest challenges automakers face when designing a high-performance car is making sure that it is both fast and reliable. For General Motors, any car that might be taken to the track by its owner – like the Corvette, Camaro Z/28 (shown above) and the Cadillac CTS-V, for example – undergoes a rigorous and strenuous 24-hour test by ...

And just like the 'Vette, it's going to cost you a pretty penny to park one of Chevy's new halo performance sedans in your driveway. When it goes on sale in the fourth ...
