2015 Chevrolet SS Reviews, Prices and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Chevrolet SS Concept. 2015 Chevrolet SS changes is one brand new car from Chevrolet that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Chevrolet SS Release Date.
To us, the 2014 Chevrolet SS seems like one of those off-the-books sleeper sedans built exclusively at the pleasure of and for use by a General Motors executive. In what other scenario could you imagine transplanting a Corvette’s powerful engine into a family sedan, then fitting aggressive transmission gearing, racecar supplier Brembo brakes, a sport-tuned suspension and every single mechanical and electronic option available?… Yeah, right, they’ll never sell that Chevy here at any price. Or so we thought.
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.
The SS sprints 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.
All-new last year, the Chevrolet SS is an affordable large car that adds a six-speed manual transmission, Magnetic Ride Control and OnStar 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hot spot for 2015.
The 2015 Chevrolet SS comes with a 415-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. New for 2015 is an optional six-speed manual transmission. GM’s Magnetic Ride Control damping system, which the automaker says will give the SS a more responsive and refined ride, is newly standard this year. The 2015 SS returns an EPA-estimated 14/21 mpg city/highway with an automatic transmission.

2015 Chevrolet SS Interior
The 2014 Chevrolet SS is a five-passenger full-size sedan offered in a single, base trim level. Standard equipment is extensive and includes 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, high-performance tires, a sport-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes, xenon headlights, foglights, heated power mirrors, keyless ignition/entry, remote start, automatic wipers, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated eight-way power front seats (with power lumbar), driver memory settings, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and leather upholstery. Standard technology features include Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an automated parallel parking system, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, lane departure warning, frontal collision warning, a navigation system, a rearview camera, an 8-inch center touchscreen with Chevrolet’s MyLink interface, OnStar, voice controls and a nine-speaker Bose sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, and iPod/USB connectivity.
Other standard features include heated and ventilated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, navigation, an 8-inch color touch-screen display and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with Bluetooth and hands-free smartphone integration. Lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and forward collision warning are also standard. A power sunroof is optional.
Standard safety equipment on the 2014 Chevrolet SS includes antilock disc brakes, stability and traction-control systems, front- and rear-seat side airbags, side-curtain airbags, and front-knee airbags. Also standard is OnStar, which includes automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, remote door unlocking, stolen vehicle assistance and turn-by-turn navigation
The instrument panel features a driver-oriented multi-page information panel flanked by two large analog gauges for vehicle and engine speed. The standard head-up display (HUD) is also multi-configurable, and it can project an impressive array of information onto the windshield. The central MyLink touchscreen display is also configurable. The interface is straightforward, and you’ll adjust easily to its menu and command structure if you already have a smartphone. However, it can be distractingly slow to respond at times.
2015 Chevrolet SS Exterior
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.
There are just five exterior colors (Silver Ice, Red Hot, Phantom Black, Heron White and Mystic Green) that are all offered over Jet Black upholstery. The options list includes just two items: a full-size spare ($500) and a power sunroof ($900). My test car was fitted with neither, but it did include a mandatory gas guzzler tax ($1,300) and destination fee ($995) that brought the total to $45,770.
Controls are generally conveniently located, although we thought the stretch to the audio system’s screen was a bit too much. On the roominess front, the SS delivers acres of space for five passengers plus a nicely-finished trunk.
Sporty bolt-ons include a pair of nicely but not outrageously bolstered front thrones (heated, air conditioned and leather/synthetic suede-wrapped, mind), a meaty three-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel and pockets of synthetic suede scattered about the dash and door panels. The look is convincingly enthusiast-oriented; it’s almost as if a Neocarsuv commenter designed it.
The SS wears an aggressive look thanks to high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights, LED daytime running lights and staggered 19-inch alloy wheels. A bulging hood, sculpted body panels and a full body kit add a muscular touch and make the SS look fast even when it’s not moving.
2015 Chevrolet SS Engine
The SS sprinted to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds, which is exceptionally quick for any sedan, be it a high-performance European flagship or a comparable muscle-bound American super sedan. The EPA’s combined fuel economy estimate stands at 17 mpg (14 city/21 highway). That’s no worse than the Charger SRT8’s economy, but you’re still going to be paying a lot at the pump.
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 controlled by shift shift paddles mounted behind the steering wheel, but a six-speed manual unit is available as a no-cost option.
Yanking on the hood release confirms the four-door’s mission. Hidden beneath a disappointingly bland plastic engine cover is a massive 6.2-liter V8 enthusiasts know this engine as the LS3 tuned to make 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. Just aft of the powerplant, mostly hidden out of view, is GM’s 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission.
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.
For American consumers, just one model is offered the Chevrolet SS and it’s more of a replacement for the dearly-departed (but hardly strong-selling) Pontiac G8. Fitted exclusively with a 6.2-liter V8 lifted more or less from the circa-2012 Corvette, the SS boasts 420 horsepower and 415 lb-ft. of torque. A six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters is the only transmission on offer, meaning buyers need only select a color and whether or not they want a sunroof or a spare tire to be included.
