2014 Chevrolet SS Test Drive and Video Review
The 2014 Chevrolet SS is America’s version of the Holden Commodore, a performance sedan that has achieved cult status in its native Australia. Holden is an Australia-based subsidiary of General Motors, which is why the Chevy SS fits so well into the brand’s North American lineup even though it wasn’t designed for this market. In other words, this domestic car is actually an import. Alongside the Chevy Camaro and Corvette performance coupes, though, there is plenty of family resemblance in the high-powered trio. T.J. Keon, Road Test Editor for Autobytel, scored some time behind the wheel of Chevy’s latest high-powered sports car, and also talked to John Fitzpatrick, Marketing Manager for the performance car division at Chevrolet. The Chevy SS is closely related, structurally and mechanically, to the rear-wheel-drive Camaro, but this performance sedan has plenty more to offer, since it does not sacrifice luxury in the pursuit of power. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8, the 2014 Chevrolet SS puts down 415 horsepower to the rear wheels and is supported by a heavy duty sport suspension system. An advanced park assist system, an award-winning infotainment system, and a luxurious, spacious cabin help round out the amenities of the Chevy SS.
