The Chevrolet SS is powered by a 415-horsepower V8 engine with 415 lb-ft of torque and is based on the same platform as the Camaro or Holden VF Commodore. The engine is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually using TAPshift paddles mounted on the steering wheel.

With an aggressive 3.27 final-drive ratio, the 2014 Chevrolet SS accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than five seconds - making it one of the quickest sedans on the market. And to ensure it turns and stops as well as it accelerates; the Chevrolet SS also features a sport-tuned chassis, including MacPherson strut front and multi-link independent rear suspension geometry and Brembo brakes.

Handling is also optimized with a nearly 50/50 weight distribution and a low center of gravity - attributes made possible in part by the aluminum hood and rear deck lid that are 30 percent lighter than traditional steel panels.

Chevrolet SS' Aggressive Design

The 2014 SS's design blend performance cues and premium details. Staggered front and rear wheels, which are pushed out to the corners, enhance the sporting, muscular stance of the SS. Up front, the aluminum hood features a subtle "power bulge" hinting at the capability of the engine underneath.

At the rear, the tapered, tear-drop shape contributes to improved aerodynamic performance. Premium cues include jewel-like chrome accents, standard high-intensity discharge headlamps and light-emitting diode daytime running lights.

Along the vehicle's sides, a character line extends from the hood to the trunk lid, helping create a classic wedge shape by further accentuating the planted appearance and muscular sheet metal. The vehicle tapers at the rear, with the C-pillar flowing into the deck lid - a design cue shared with other Chevrolet sedans.

Bright dual-exhaust tips put an exclamation mark on the rear design, while delivering the throaty note performance enthusiasts expect from their vehicle.

The 2014 SS is offered in five exterior colors: Silver Ice Metallic, Red Hot 2, Phantom Black, Heron White and Mystic Green Metallic.
