Chevrolet SS's Exterior Updated for 2016 Model Year

2016 models are available in a new color, Slipstream Blue.

The Chevrolet SS will go into a new model year with some minor exterior enhancements.

A revised front fascia features new, vertical ducts at the outer edges to direct airflow over the front wheel openings to improve aerodynamic efficiency. The fascia also incorporates new LED signature lighting, while new, functional hood vents and new-design 19-inch cast-aluminum wheels contribute to a stronger appearance for the rear-drive sports sedan.

Slipstream Blue, a new exterior color, is also available on 2016 models.

Inside, Chevrolet MyLink features a new 8-inch-diagonal radio with standard navigation.

What hasn't changed is the SS's 6.2-liter V-8 engine under the hood that outputs an SAE-certified 415 horsepower (310 kW) and 415 lb-ft of torque (563 Nm), and offers a six-speed manual transmission or a paddle-shift six-speed automatic transmission.

A new, dual-mode exhaust system for 2016 complements the V-8 engine with quieter performance at low engine speeds and a more muscular engine note at wide-open throttle.

Adding to the performance-focused SS, Magnetic Ride Control - the world's fastest-reacting damping system - is a standard feature. It provides more precise body motion control that equals a more responsive and refined ride. State-of-the-art Brembo brakes, standard in the front and rear, are also included on the vehicle.

With the automatic transmission and its performance-oriented 3.27 final-drive ratio, the Chevrolet SS accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds. Models equipped with the manual transmission feature a more aggressive 3.70 axle ratio for even stronger acceleration.
