The 2017 Chevrolet SS might just be the perfect sleeper sedan. Its fender vents and big wheels and tires suggest aggressiveness without screaming it. But the reality is that this is a full-fledged sports sedan, with a Corvette-derived V8 engine powering the rear wheels through an available 6-speed manual transmission, a sport-tuned suspension and Brembo brakes that give this big, comfortable, 5-passenger American sedan the moves of a high-end German luxury sports sedan. All this American power and German sophistication comes to us via Australia, where the Chevy SS is sold as the Holden Commodore. While its subdued styling may not turn heads like a Dodge ChargerSRT, once you're behind the wheel you may find yourself involuntarily reaching for your checkbook.
The 2016 Chevrolet SS sedan gets a minor facelift, with LED signature lighting, functional hood vents and new 19-inch wheels. An improved MyLink 8-inch navigation radio is standard, as is a new dual-mode exhaust system.
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.
"A thrill to drive, just need to get the other traffic out of the way. Super fast off the line but even more impressive 60-130mph. What a rush. I have surprised many Charger and Challenger drivers, they can't figure out how that Malibu beat them!
Last car I will ever need."
"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."
