All-New 2014 Chevrolet SS Rekindles Performance Sedan Heritage

2014 Chevrolet SS

Elizabeth City, NC – As Chevrolet’s first V-8, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan since 1996, the new Chevrolet SS, now available at Performance Chevrolet, is designed to deliver performance on the street and on the track. It joins the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray and revamped 2014 Camaro to broaden America’s and Elizabeth City-area’s favorite performance brand.

The 6.2L LS3 small-block V-8 is the power behind the SS’s driving experience. It is SAE-certified at 415 horsepower (310 kW) and 415 lb.-ft. of torque (563 Nm) and paired with the Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic with paddle-shift control. The engine’s torque is channeled to the rear axle, which has a 3.27 ratio for a great feeling of performance. Engine oil and transmission coolers are standard.

“The 2014 SS is Chevy’s first V-8, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan in more than 15 years,” said Mike Lilly of Performance Chevrolet. “Elizabeth City -area enthusiasts are going to love the power and torque this vehicle brings.”

A sport-tuned suspension complements the powertrain with handling prowess and driving refinement for Elizabeth City-area buyers. The front suspension is a MacPherson-strut-based multi-link system with a direct-acting stabilizer bar. It features a forward-mounted steering rack and dual lower links with individual ball joints at the outer ends. A hydraulically damped bushing is used on the forward end of the tension link for improved ride isolation.

The rear suspension is a multi-link independent system with coil-over shock absorbers and decoupled stabilizer bar. It has high lateral stiffness for handling through three lateral ball joints per side with improved longitudinal compliance. A rubber isolated suspension frame isolates the body from road imperfections and drivetrain vibrations. The inclusion of more lightweight aluminum components, including the front steering knuckle and tension arms, delivers Elizabeth City-area drivers tremendous ride and handling characteristics.

Four-wheel disc brakes are standard and feature track-capable Brembo front brakes, with four-piston, two-piece aluminum front calipers and large, 14-inch (355 mm) two-piece front rotors. The aluminum front calipers provide increased stiffness to reduce fluid displacement and caliper deformation without adding weight. The result is an enhancement to braking feel and overall vehicle dynamics for Elizabeth City-area drivers.

Electronic Brake Force Distribution optimizes control of rear brake pressure on all Elizabeth City-area road surfaces and under all vehicle loading conditions. Electronic Brake Assist senses how hard and fast a Elizabeth City -area driver hits the brake pedal and gives extra braking assistance, if required.

The SS’s steering system employs a variable-assist electric power steering system (EPS) that saves fuel by drawing energy only when the wheels are turned. The variable-effort design provides lighter parking efforts at low speed and greater effort at higher speeds, for a more direct steering feel. The system is also calibrated to detect constant driver steering wheel load due to factors such as road camber and crosswind. The system will compensate to reduce steering effort to a more neutral level and lessen potential Elizabeth City -area driver fatigue.

The all-new 2014 Chevrolet SS is now available at Performance Chevrolet for a suggested starting retail price of $44,470, including a $995 destination fee. Tax, title and license fee is extra.

Chevrolet Announces New SS Performance Sedan

Elizabeth City, NC  Chevrolet and Performance Chevrolet today announced the return of a V-8 powered, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan to the U.S. lineup, the Chevrolet SS.  The SS will also be Chevrolet’s next NASCAR Sprint Cup racecar and will debut in its race configuration at the 2013 Daytona 500.

The limited production version of the Chevrolet SS will be a 2014 model and will arrive at Performance Chevrolet in late 2013. It is the first time in 17 years that Chevrolet will offer a rear-wheel-drive sedan for sale in the United States.

“What better way for Chevrolet and Elizabeth City to celebrate a rich history in racing and performance, than with the Chevrolet SS,” said Jimmie Ritter of Performance Chevrolet. ”We know that our race and performance enthusiasts will be thrilled for the arrival of the SS.”

Chevrolet has a long history of using the SS (Super Sport) designation on high-performance models of some of its most enduring nameplates. The SS designation first appeared in 1957 on a Corvette prototype race car built under the guidance of Zora Arkus-Duntov with the plan to enter it in the Le Mans 24-hour race. 

The first production vehicle offered with an SS option was the 1961 Impala – 453 were built with the performance upgrades which included a modified chassis and suspension, power brakes, a steering column mounted tachometer and unique wheels and tires. The latest SS model in the Chevrolet lineup is the fifth-generation Camaro, which debuted in 2010. 

The Chevrolet SS will be a derivative of the award-winning global rear-wheel-drive architecture that spawns performance vehicles like Chevrolet Camaro and Holden’s upcoming VF Commodore.  The much anticipated Australian-built car will benefit from significant technology advances which enhance overall performance.

Chevrolet was America’s best-selling performance car brand in 2011 with Camaro and Corvette accounting for one out of every three sports cars sold in the United States.  The addition of the SS should strengthen Chevrolet’s position as a leading performance brand.
