Chevrolet SS

The Chevrolet SS utilises the 6.2 L V8 engine from the Corvette, with power and torque figures of 310 kW (420 hp) and 563 newton metres (415 lb·ft). The only available transmission, a six-speed automatic, can be shifted manually using paddle shifters on the steering wheel

The Chevrolet SS has an MSRP of US$44,470. There is a single, fully equipped specification level, with two optional extras; a sunroof and a full-size spare tire. The SS comes with Chevrolet's MyLink system (including Bluetooth, Sirius XM Radio, HD Radio and Pandora Radio features) and, like the VF Commodore, has auto-park assist, a blind-spot monitoring system, a lane departure warning system and electronic power steering. The SS is fitted with 19-inch wheels.

On 7 June 2013 Holden began touting the VF Commodore and its ties to the Chevrolet SS in a series of new television commercials which were released on-line. On April 26, 2014, reports began surfacing that Chevrolet is planning to add manual transmission and magnetic ride suspension to the SS for the 2015 model year, whose updated look will make its debut at the Woodward Dream Cruise in August 2014.
