2014 Chevrolet SS | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Chevrolet SS. 2014 Chevrolet SS is one brand new car from Chevrolet that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Chevrolet SS.
The SS is Chevrolet’s long-awaited rear-wheel drive performance sedan. Built in Elizabeth, Australia, by General Motors’ Holden division, it is essentially an Australia-only VF Commodore sporting a Bowtie emblem on the grille.
The SS rides on a modified version of the Zeta platform that also underpins the two-door Camaro. It stretches 195.6 inches long, 74.8 inches wide and 58.7 inches tall, making it roughly the same size as Cadillac’s range-topping XTS.
Rumors have been swirling since 2011 regarding the Chevrolet SS and we were amongst the first to start discussing it. The rumors cooled off up until a few weeks ago when after 40 years of using the “SS” logo, GM finally decided to trademark it. Later the rumors became even more certain, as OnStar, GM’s in-vehicle communication system, mistakenly put the 2014 model lineup on its site. Within that lineup was a model dubbed the SS Performance.
2014 Chevrolet SS Price :
Pricing for the new 2014 Chevrolet SS has been set at $44,470 – $50,000 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2014 Chevrolet SS we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.
2014 Chevrolet SS Interior :
With ample room for up to five passengers, the SS’ interior is better equipped than its performance-oriented drivetrain might suggest. Make no mistake: This is not a lightweight, no-frills race car.
Cleanly designed, the dashboard is finished with soft-touch materials, and two bucket seats with the SS logo stitched into the seat back come standard up front. Ice blue ambient lighting and two types of chrome trim add a premium touch to the appearance. The instrument cluster consists of four analog gauges and 4.2-inch screen that provides navigation directions as well as vital information about what is going on under the hood.
The SS comes standard with Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system. Controlled by an eight-inch dash-mounted color touch, MyLink offers access to smartphone-based apps like Pandora radio and Stitcher radio. The system can connect up to 10 Bluetooth devices and store as many as 1,000 contacts.
Unfortunately, there’s not a ton of information on the interior yet, but there is a little bit of info and a good bit of images to let us know what to expect. The interior will carry up to five people, giving the front passengers 42 inches of legroom and the rear passengers 39 inches of legroom. The seats will be wrapped up nice and snug in leather and will have eight-way power adjustment.
Proving that the cheapo GM interiors of yesteryear are gone, Chevy fitted the SS Performance with a soft-touch instrument panel with an SS logo embroidered in it in case you happen to forget and two chrome finishes to choose from: a more sinister satin gloss or the flashier bright chrome.
2014 Chevrolet SS Exterior :
On the outside, Chevy took a similar approach to what Ford took with the Taurus SHO. It is a very simple design that closely resembles the Holden donor, but there will be an element of sexiness to its simplicity. One of the key features that really shows that the SS Performance isn’t messing around is its power dome in the center of the hood. Additionally, it gets chrome accents around the top of the grille and around the air vents just behind the front wheels to add an element of class to it.
On the rear end, there is a trunk-mounted spoiler and a set of relatively unimposing taillights that really scream “family car.” We definitely would have preferred Chevy to deliver a sharper set of taillights. The SS Performance redeems itself for the boring taillights with a sharp-looking bumper insert with the pair of tailpipes poking out of the rear.
2014 Chevrolet SS Engine :
To briskly move the SS’ considerable mass, engineers dug around the Corvette parts bin and pulled out a LS3 6.2-liter V8 that makes 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft. of torque. It sends power to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles mounted behind the steering wheel.
A 3.27 final gear ratio helps the SS sprint from zero to 60 mph in a scant five seconds. Ventilated disc brakes manufactured by Brembo help ensure that the sedan stops as well as it goes. Equipped with electric power steering, the SS is first and foremost a driver’s car. It has a near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, and the hood and trunk lid are both made out of aluminum in order to lower the center of gravity.
There are many large, V8-powered rear-wheel drive sedans on the market but most of them are more expensive or more luxury-oriented than the SS. The sedan’s main rival is the 470-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT8.
The Ford Taurus SHO packs a similar concept in a less powerful, all-wheel drive package. The Hyundai Genesis is more of a luxury cruiser, but it is powered by a potent 5.0-liter V8 that is rated at 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of twist.
