2014 Chevy SS: Flagship Luxuries
The Bowtie brand’s new range-topper won’t just be absurdly powerful, it also will feature a particularly wide range of premium amenities right out of the box. The muscular exterior of the 2014 Chevrolet SS showcases much attention to detail, along with a tasteful application of chrome accents and LED daytime running lights, and relies on an aluminum hood and rear deck lid for impressive weight savings. Dimensionally speaking, the SS stretches 195.6 inches, allowing it to fit in between the mid-size Chevy Malibu (191.5 inches in length) and the full-sized all-new Chevy Impala (201.3 inches), and the SS is somewhat wider than that pair as well, reinforcing its sportier esthetic.
Inside the 2014 Chevy SS, up to five adult occupants will enjoy a fairly capacious cabin that provides 42 inches of front legroom, 39 inches of rear legroom and standard leather seating in both rows, highlighted by soft-touch materials, both satin-gloss and bright-chrome accents, and ice-blue ambient lighting.
Further standard amenities in the 2014 Chevy SS will include:
- Nine speakers worth of premium sound from Bose, enhanced by a color touchscreen that also supports Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment/connectivity system and the brand’s next-gen nav technology
- High-tech driver-assistance measures like forward collision alert, lane-departure warning, side blind-zone alert, a rearview camera with rear cross-traffic alert and the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system
- Upscale touches like push-button start and a color heads-up display
The 2014 Chevrolet SS also will be the first Bowtie product to offer hands-free park-assist technology.
The party line from Mark Reuss, president of GM North America: “The Chevrolet brand was largely built on the strength of rear-drive performance sedans, yet it's been 17 years since we've offered one. The all-new Chevrolet SS fills that void and fills it better than any other vehicle in the brand’s rich history. The comfort, convenience, spaciousness and V8 power make the SS a total performance package unlike any other on the road today.”
