Chevrolet is introducing its first rear-wheel-drive sedan to its lineup in 17 years with the all-new 2014 SS.
Engineered for enthusiasts, this V8 sports sedan stays true to its roots by delivering performance with elegance. A 6.2L V8 engine provides 415 horsepower, 415 lb.-ft. of torque and 0-60 in 5 seconds flat. And behind it all is the confidence of knowing you’ve got the support of a 2 year / 24,000 mile scheduled maintenance program†.
SS offers an exhilarating driving experience while providing luxurious space, comfort and convenience for up to five adults. Styling is aggressive yet refined from the inside out. The 2014 Chevrolet SS sports sedan will arrive in showrooms later this year.
Strong, contemporary yet refined shapes are sculpted with restrained sensitivity from the muscular rear-wheel-drive proportions. The aggressive front fascia flows into a sleek midsection before giving way to a tapered rear that helps to manage airflow. Bulging pronounced fender flares and a low wide stance divulge its high-performance underpinnings
A confident stance
Forged aluminum alloy 19" x 8.5" wheels up front and 19" x 9" wheels in back are wrapped in performance summer-only tires† that plant an athletic stance, emphasizing this rear-wheel-drive’s capability. Restrained, but muscular, the Chevrolet SS sports sedan is a sophisticated machine.
High performance Brembo® front brakes feature 4-piston, two-piece aluminum front calipers and 355mm front rotors. The calipers provide increased stiffness to reduce fluid displacement and the rotor design improves cooling and durability.
The bright dual-exhaust tips put an exclamation mark on the rear design and delivers a throaty note performance enthusiasts expect.
With SS, you get standard HID headlamps. And LED daytime running lamps provide a distinctive look and help you be seen anytime of day.
Combine the smoothness of the 6-speed automatic transmission, 415-horsepower 6.2L V8 with the capability of TAPshift® and StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control, and the traction of a limited-slip rear differential to create one fast sport sedan — reaching 60 mph in 5 seconds. And race-proven Brembo® 4-piston brakes with two-piece aluminum front calipers and massive 14-inch rotors are ready to stand up to repeated hard stops.
The backbone of SS sports sedan is its stiff structure that offers a rigid foundation for the suspension and enables precise ride and handling while helping isolate the cabin from road inputs. The Sport-Tuned suspension with a front MacPherson strut-based multilink system and a rear multilink independent system, combined with Electric Power Steering (EPS), provides handling prowess with added refinement. SS also has a near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, creating a nearly neutral package that also optimizes its handling characteristics. The result is a solid-feeling chassis with precise handling and control for the driver.
Unlike the competition, the production Chevrolet SS has the same rear-wheel-drive small block V8 configuration as its NASCAR® sibling. With Chevrolet SS, you get attainable luxury mixed with some serious racetrack DNA.
An integrated center stack adds to the intuitive and refined interior of the SS sports sedan. Combining infotainment, climate and other controls as a tightly constructed one-piece module, the center stack exemplifies class-leading levels of fit and finish. Its design also aids in noise and vibration isolation, along with standard wheelhouse liners and 5mm thick glass.
A PREMIUM INTERIOR
Hand-wrapped soft leather-appointed performance seats with firm bolsters and sueded microfiber inserts, lumbar support and twin needle and decorative stitching offer you stylish support. The 10-way power seats are heated and ventilated allowing customization for different driver preferences. And with seating for five and 39.7 inches of leg room for the rear-seat passengers, SS doesn’t sacrifice comfort for vigor.
A color Head-Up Display projects vital information like your speed, turn-by-turn directions and more. Projected onto the windshield directly within your field of vision, this display keeps you informed while your eyes are safely on the road.
The SS sports sedan helps you stay connected while on the go with smart, easy-to-use Chevrolet MyLink† infotainment with the GPS-based navigation system. Set on a large, 8-inch diagonal high-resolution color touch-screen, the system’s graphic interface features intuitive functions through the Bose® 9-speaker premium audio system.
Intelligent key fob
Allowing for passive entry and a push-button start that makes beginning your drive effortless, the intelligent key fob is as simple as opening the door, pushing the ignition button and finding your road. Alternatively, you can use the remote start feature from up to 300 feet away.
Driver Information Center
A 3-inch diagonal color LCD screen in the center of the instrument cluster communicates menus for vehicle and trip information as well as warnings and messages. This Driver Information Center alerts you to battery and speed information, fuel economy statistics, navigation, whether or not rear passengers have their safety belts buckled and more.
Access music and entertainment stored on your phone while driving by connecting your smartphone to the simple-to-use available Chevrolet MyLink† system through the USB port†. With two auxiliary power outlets, you can charge multiple devices while on the road.
Automatic Parking Assist
Furthering innovation and convenience, the Chevrolet SS sports sedan can almost park itself. Automatic Parking Assist provides hands-free parking by accurately detecting a space and working with you to steer into it.
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps alert the driver to crossing traffic from behind while the vehicle is in reverse. Similar radar sensors help keep an eye on blind spots to the side of the vehicle with the Side Blind Zone Alert†, which illuminates small LED-lit symbols in the corresponding outside mirror when another vehicle is detected. Keep an eye on your driving with the available Lane Departure Warning. It gives you an audible alert while driving if you unintentionally drift out of your lane without using a turn signal. Going forward? Forward Collision Alert warns you through the Head-Up Display if you are too close to the vehicle ahead.
On slippery surfaces, StabiliTrak helps keep SS on course by detecting the difference between the path being steered and the direction the vehicle is traveling. It then uses the brakes and, if necessary, adjusts engine torque to help keep your SS on track. In the event of a collision, the vehicle’s innovative safety features go to work and help to protect with 8 standard air bags†.
In the event of a collision, crucial information can be sent to the OnStar® Command Center via OnStar Automatic Crash Response System†. A trained Onstar Advisor can utilize GPS technology to pinpoint your location and request emergency assistance — even if you’re unable to respond. It’s part of the OnStar Directions & Connections® Plan,† standard for six months.
