If you married together the raw power and performance of a muscle car and the sleek and sophisticated sensibilities of a luxury car, you would get the Chevrolet SS. Since it broke onto the scene in late 2013, the Chevrolet SS has been turning the heads of car fanatics and critics alike. Like many of the other performance-oriented vehicles in Chevy’s lineup, the SS offers sleek styling, screamingly fast powertrains, and a slightly mind-boggling array of high-tech features. One drive and you’ll be convinced—the SS offers something truly and refreshingly unique.
What Are You Looking For?
Plenty of features, technology, style, and performance elements are packed beautifully into the all-new 2015 Chevy SS. Superior power and agility starts with the amped-up 6.2L V8 SFI engine. It delivers 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. You’ll have total control with the 6-speed TAPshift automatic or manual transmission, plus the choice of Brembo brakes and Magnetic Ride Control technology. You’ll be able to stop on a dime, accelerate with ease, and handle corners and curves like a pro. Plus, the sculpted, aerodynamic body style and flared fenders aren’t just incredibly attractive—they’re also designed to slip through the air with minimal drag.
The interior is just as impressive with sophisticated leather trim, performance seats with 10-way power, heat, and ventilation, as well as a head-up display and Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system to keep all of your information easily accessible.
- Autoweek raves, “Besides the manual raising the SS’ performance game, the magnetic suspension helps make it a more user-friendly vehicle. You now have the best of both worlds with the ability to firm things up when you want and to soften the suspension when you’re commuting around normally. Even with things in sport mode, the ride is livable, but it’s real comfy in the tour setting.”
- Kelley Blue Book says, “The Chevy SS is also equipped with Magnetic Ride Control, which uses electro-magnetic shocks that adjust to road conditions in real time, giving the car tremendous balance in ride and handling… All told, the SS is both a consummate high speed cruiser and adept at handling the twisty bits.”
- U.S. News and World Report writes, “Reviewers say the 2015 Chevrolet SS is defined by its attractive interior styling and premium materials. They agree the front seats are spacious and comfortable, and the back seat has plenty of legroom.”
The upcoming 2016 model is sure to provide even more to get excited about. A revamped exterior offers functional low air ducts to keep even more air resistance at bay, as well as sleek LED lighting and an upgraded overall fascia design. Add in dual mode exhaust and 19-inch wheels, and you’ve got a recipe for a seriously attractive vehicle.
