Manual-transmission fans, rejoice. Chevy has heard your pleas and made one available as a no-cost option for the 2015 SS. This mainstream performance sedan is further heightened with standard Magnetic Ride Control and rear Brembo brakes to match the stoppers in front. Also new is built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
Chevy's 2015 SS looks like an ordinary sedan on the outside but hides a beast within. That's what results when you stuff a Corvette-derived V8 under the hood of a 5-passenger family car. Now in its second year, the Chevy SS marks the return of a full-size, rear-wheel-drive sedan to the automaker's lineup after nearly two decades. Like the late Pontiac G8, the SS is based on Australia's raucous Holden Commodore. And like the Dodge Charger SRT and Ford Taurus SHO, the Chevy SS serves a small but fervent audience of performance enthusiasts who want family-hauling practicality in a sedan that will embarrass most sports cars. At over $48,000 and with an addiction to gasoline, the SS isn't cheap but sure is thrilling.

"I traded in my 2010 Cadillac CTS-V for this car and i couldn't be happier. I loved my V but this car is everything it was plus some. Its faster, better built, and the drive quality is far better on the road or track. It's quiet and mellow when your cursing, but mean and angry when you want it to be. With 415 hp you can do anything you want. When i take it to the track it sticks extremely well in the corners and acts like it was built for the track, yet i can drive straight to the highway and have the versatility of a calm quiet sedan. The brembo brakes stop you on a dime and the corvettes 6.2L v8 pushes that car from 0-60 in less than 4.8 seconds and to a blistering top speed of 160+ mph."
