    June 4, 2013

    Chevrolet has announced the pricing for the upcoming SS sedan. The base price is $45,465 (includes $995 destination charge) and comes equipped with an 6.2L LS3 V8 engine with 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, the SS hits 60 MPH in under five seconds.

    Standard equipment for the SS includes nineteen-inch forged aluminum wheels, Brembo front brakes, Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system, Bose premium-sound system, color heads-up display, dual-zone climate control, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and push-button start.

    There are two options available for the SS; a sunroof for $900 and a full-size spare tire for $500.

    “The all-new SS is engineered for performance enthusiasts who’ve been clamoring for a rear-wheel-drive sedan. Adding the SS to the lineup further solidifies Chevrolet’s position as America’s best-selling performance-car brand that also includes the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray and Camaro Z/28,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.

    What isn't known at this time is the gas-guzzler tax for the SS. Chevrolet says they will announce that when they get that information.

    2014 Chevrolet SS Priced at $44,470

    DETROIT – The suggested retail price for the 2014 Chevrolet SS sports sedan is $44,470, including a $995 destination charge, Chevrolet announced today. Title and license fees are extra. The SS goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2013.

    The U.S.-exclusive SS – Chevrolet’s first rear-drive performance sedan since 1996 – comes well-equipped in only one model, with a power-operated sunroof ($900) and full-size spare tire ($500) as the only options.

    “The all-new SS is engineered for performance enthusiasts who’ve been clamoring for a rear-wheel-drive sedan,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “Adding the SS to the lineup further solidifies Chevrolet’s position as America’s best-selling performance-car brand that also includes the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray and Camaro Z/28.”

    Standard equipment includes:

    • High intensity discharge headlamps with Light emitting diode daytime running lamps
    • Automatic Parking Assist
    • Chevrolet MyLink with a color touch screen and GPS-based navigation system
    • Bose® premium audio system – including SiriusXM radio (with 12-month trial)
    • Color head-up display and color driver information center
    • Dual-zone automatic climate control
    • Alloy pedal covers
    • Heated and ventilated front seats with memory
    • Side Blind Zone Alert and Lane Departure Warning
    • Rear-vision camera with rear park assist
    • Keyless access and push-button start.

    The LS3 6.2L small-block V-8 powers the SS, is SAE certified at 415 horsepower (310 kW) and 415 lb-ft of torque (563 Nm), which helps it sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds. It is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually using TAPshift paddles mounted on the steering wheel.

    The rear axle has an aggressive 3.27 ratio that enhances the feeling of acceleration. Additional chassis and suspension features include:

    • MacPherson strut front and multi-link independent rear suspension geometry
    • Electronic power steering system, optimized for sport driving
    • Standard Brembo front brakes, with ventilated, 14-inch (355-mm) two-piece rotors and four-piston calipers
    • Forged aluminum wheels, wrapped in ultra-high-performance Bridgestone tires: 19 x 8.5-inch wheels with 245/40ZR19 tires in front; 19 x 9-inch wheels with 275/35ZR19 tires at the rear.

    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.

    The SS will be available in five exterior colors – Mystic Green, Silver Ice Metallic, Red Hot 2, Phantom Black Metallic and Heron White. All interiors will be Jet Black and feature sport front bucket seats.

    The SS will be subject to the gas guzzler tax. Pricing information will be updated when the charge is determined.

    Figured it would be up there...about $2k less than it's only competitor, the Charger SRT8. 55hp less than the SRT8, though, but 45hp more than the R/T--for $15k more. Alas, w/ dealer gouge, these will probably be $60-65k for a while...

    So I have to assume this is posted in the truck forum by accident - unless there is a Ute version no one has mentioned.

    At any rate, I am not impressed with the looks, content, nor price of this SS - I think they did it wrong all the way around.

    Cars like this depreciate quickly though, see Genesis, Charger/300C and Pontiac G8 as examples. Probably in 3 years you'll be able to snag one for the price of a base Malibu.

    well, it's overpriced, but i guess all vehicles are today.

    this pretty much guarantees this as a niche model.

    if you want a v8, you're gonna pay

    not using an lt1 at that price is not surprising cause of it's newness, but also a bad move... wasn't the first 2 years of the GTO using the ls1 when the ls3 ls2 just came out?

    actually G8 GT's are holding values very well, at least the prices I have seen. there are few G8 GT's with decent miles below 18K in my neck of the woods. that being said, $45K is used CTS-V money if it was my choice. in fact there is a 2011 model just 2 hours away with 20K miles for $46 and change...

    The G8 models in this area have only gone up do to strong demand and so few of them. I have had several low mileage models here well over $20K and they sold easily. The higher mile models have been just under $20K. keep in mind I could have bought a GT in the last year for $23K out the door, maybe I should have?

    GM made it clear this was going to be over $40K as that is where most similar models are. I expected a little higher but I also expected the new engine or a Supercharged engine.

    I see complaints but I really do not know what many were expecting. The car is a 2 year car and will be replaced. At that point we are assuming a Alpha bases SS but if they move production here we may see expansion to the V6 and other variations,

    The exchange rate is a killer here and the MPG is not any help to GM's issues they already have meeting them. I just have a feeling this car will be in a couple years built on the same line as the Cadillac's and Camaro where it will help on price a little and will be on a new lighter platform to better deal with the MPG using a LT1.

    Ruess has been working to bring this car back and his window opened so he took it. Now that it is here he will buy time till the car better suited price wise to our market arrives.

    To me, the only thing that falls into the "too bad" category is the SS not offering a manual transmission...

    That's the dealbreaker more than anything else, but I see this car as a G8 that has changed for the worse in every way. I'd be far happier with a used G8 GXP than I ever would with this car.

    Another 95% effort from GM.

    It seems like GM has a trend for these niche models. GTO, SSR and now this - offer with lesser powertrain for a lot more dough to attain nicheness. The press will hammer the car, GM will realise it was a mistake, offer better powertrain but by that time the damage has been done.

    Does GM want these niche cars to fail?

    Of course they do..if the sales are too high, they would cut into sales of other models and lower the CAFE ratings...

    yeap. the local BPGMC dealership in my area not only had a solstice coupe, but there was a loaded white on grey G8 GT on the lot marked down to $26K... I kick myself for not pulling the trigger on that, but with the impala 3/4's through the restoration and a truck that wasn't paid for I couldn't justify another payment.

    as for the complaints of the SS on my end, it is the powertrain. dollar for dollar the SRT8 is just the better of the two choices to me. as GM loyal as I want to be, its hard to ignore almost a 60hp difference.

    While I like the SS.. I fail to see how this is a better business case than a new Avalanche.

    The Avalanche wouldn't make a good NASCAR racer :P

    I disagree, the Avalanche would have been a Great NASCAR racer. Use the Supercharged LS9 and just push everyone out of your way to Victory! :P

    Or at least a decent Pace car. :D

    Guys you need to look big picture again. You need to look to the future to better understand the present.


    #1 This car is a 2-3 year deal to start with on the VF. Holden said they are already well on the way with a replacement car. Most speculate it is a Alpha based car.

    #2 No matter if some want to believe it or not the exchange rate between us and down under is a BI$%ch right now. It hurts us on this end greatly. I deal with Australians every day as they are buying as much as they can from the states.

    #3 I feel this car was approved and Mark wanted it in to lock a place in the line up as things unfold. If he waits two to three years things could change and he may not get a larger RWD Chevy approved.

    #4 If speculation is correct we could be seeing the next gen built here along with the Camaro, CTS and ATS on the Alpha line.

    #5 If built here we could see expansions of the lines to include a cheaper V6 and even a Ute.

    Now the only thing we do know for sure is the VF will have a very short life and they have a planned replacement but there is a lot to consider and much to understand that could and will happen.

    As for now you have a damn good car here with enough HP scare some grown Honda driving men. It has a interior the G8 only could dream of. Also you can B$$#ch all you want about the automatic but 85% of the buyers or more would have chosen it anyways.

    The bottom line is I see in the future a lighter LT1 V8 car with a manual option being built in MI. We may see an expanded line up too.

    I truly think Mark saw a chance to approve this car with all in GM with the need in NASCAR. It was a need that needed filled and this put this car on the Map. Now once approved he can nurse it along with the older engine and heavier platform from outside the states till the new car arrives. In this business you take your opportunities when they present themselves as for a year or two from now the plan may not have had a chance.

    Just be grateful for what you got as you could have had nothing.


    As for the Avalanche I would love to see them do something similar with the new Colorado. It needs a open cab design much more than the full size trucks needed. The crew cab Colorado is a waste of little usable space unless you leave it all hanging out. Add the open cab to a Colorado based truck and make it so you can really haul things.
    Also the Colorado based truck would be much more affordable. My buddies loaded LTZ is a really nice truck but for what he paid for it I would think twice.

    Nonsense.

    With this car they tried too hard, and ended up fixing what wasn't broken. This is a luxury car, not a Chevy SS - they missed the mark, and were years late in doing it.

    I'm, not giving them a pass on this one.

    EDIT: Let me put this another way. The recipe they chose for this car would have been fine - for a Buick.

    So basically, no one on a board full of GM fans who like sports cars wants to buy one. If GM fans are turned off by it, the mass public probably won't even notice its existence.

    I see two problems. The first is the Impala looks better than the SS, the SS looks a bit more rental car than it does Super Sport. Second problem is people looking for sports cars or sport sedans aren't really looking for the big V8 sedan anymore. It is more about light weight and agile handling and turbo 4-cylinders nowadays. I think at $45k a lot of people would rather have a 3-series or ATS than a 4200 lb, 17 ft long V8 sedan that goes well in a straight line and that's it.

    No one opposes the car, it is the packaging which can be improved

    First off - offer the LT1 with genuine 6 speed or 7 speed manual transmission to at least make it worthy of a 4 door Corvette. Second off - price it at $40,000 not $46,000; if it has less standard equipment then so be it. Thirdly, it weighs ~4,000 not 4,200 lbs.

      Tesla Officially in Trouble, Business Insider Says!

      To quote Business Insider final comments on Tesla and the Chevy Bolt:
      "Clearly, Tesla would be in less trouble if the Chevy Bolt were a bad car. But it isn't. Teslas have always blown me away. The Bolt blew me away for different reasons. I just hope Tesla is prepared to take this into account." 
      Matthew is a Business Insider senior correspondent who covers transportation and as a fan of Tesla was excited to check out a Chevy BOLT as comparison to the Tesla. On a recent trip to california he took time to visit the closet Chevrolet Dealer to his hotel and this is what he found.
      He states that to borrow Barkley's line, "Tesla is in trouble." You have one of the world's biggest auto companies that is known for killing the electric auto stepping off the sidelines and actually committing considerable resources to building a long range EV where it can afford to lose money on it long term till the market changes. Tesla has 400,000 plus pre-orders, but is burning through cash by the billions and while the launch of the Tesla 3 is near and Tesla still has Sexy much like Apple to an iPhone. Tesla does not have the depth of customer auto experience to pull from and as the author points out, Tesla balance sheet is precarious as it is based on raising funds on a growth story. The author goes onto say that no one will cross shop a Tesla S or X with the Chevy BOLT. They will due to limited options cross shop the Tesla 3 to the Bolt.
      To pull some interesting statements from the story, the author had the following to say:
      "I found it more fun to drive than both the Tesla Model S and the Model X, but not the original Roadster, a much smaller vehicle."
      "The Bolt is plenty fast for most people."
      "GM isn't going to overwhelm Tesla with Bolt sales. I actually think the Model 3 will greatly outsell the Bolt once Tesla's car arrives. However, it's also possible that if the Model 3 is delayed or is slow to ramp up, Chevy will be preparing a mid-cycle refresh of the Bolt before Model 3 sales start to achieve some major momentum. In other words, GM will always be ahead, and the company — barring another massive financial meltdown — will never stop putting the Bolt up against the Model 3."
      BI covered the BOLT in follow stories with the next one being more of an official review that starts off with covering the auto with the following statement: "A platform, not business as usual!" 
      From ride-hailing to ride-sharing, self driving Chevy has delivered an auto for the future that gives GM options on how they build and expand their EV lineup. BI took delivery of their white Premier BOLT just before the blizzard that hit NY. Clearly a compact-crossover-hatchback look, design is what the magazine employees felt it was and is. Surprising the BI reviewers was the amount of cargo the auto can hold and how well it handled 4 people and grocery getting. BI states that GM has told them the next addition to the BOLT lineup will be a larger auto that can accommodate 5 or more people. An exceptionally well executed minimalist design that comes with an interior that feels more premium in comparison to auto's this size in the past from GM that felt clearly parts bin cheap. The review goes on to talk about how setting the front seat for a 6'4" tall driver and getting in the back with room ahead of the knees for the same size person is a nice welcome addition to such a compact auto. Heated steering wheel was welcomed by all. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto kept everyone happily connected to their phone while driving.
      The final statement to quote from the review is as follows:
      "We were impressed with the Bolt, as a car, as an electric car, and as a mobility concept. In many ways, it is GM's post-bankruptcy masterpiece, a real feather in the cap of CEO Mary Barra and her executive team, who took what the company had achieved with its ill-fated EV-1 back in the 1990s and turned it up to 11. 
      I also flat-out loved driving it. I blasted in and out of New York City twice, rocketed around the streets of Gotham, darting through traffic, and cruised along the highways of New Jersey. I also enjoyed just driving it around the quiet streets of the suburb where I live.
      The steering is quick and responsive, and the handling is sharp enough to provide the confidence you need when surfing that sweet EV torque.
      The single-pedal mode is also very cool — I dug not using the brakes at all for extended excursions in my town. After a bit of practice, you get into a kind of Zen state with it. 
      Not a single person asked me about the car, and that can be chalked up to the ho-hum design. But I didn't care. I was lovin' it. Plain and simple, the Bolt is fun."
      Here is where we have overlap between story #2 and Story #3 which covers the 7 Killer Features:
      Dual Screens- 10.2" touch screen infotainment center & an 8" drivers console display which are totally customizable. Auto's wireless charging console. BOLT App allowing you to be connected to your auto at all times. Five cameras: front, rear, side mirrors and their 360 camera. 9hr full charge time from a 240 volt charger. 25 miles per hour, faster with Level 3 DC charging. Lane Keep assist feature. Modern Seat design allowing for maximum space inside. Over all these writeups show that GM has delivered a superior auto to the Prius, Leaf, 500e, etc. The future will be bright for the BOLT as GM move the platform forward.

      Porsche's upcoming Mission E is an important vehicle for the brand and they want to give the best shot of succeeding. To do this, the German sports car builder is planning to price it to compete in a "segment below the Panamera".
      This information comes to us from Porsche's chairman Oliver Blume. Speaking with Drive.com.au, Blume says the model will be offered in various power outputs (something akin to other Porsche models like the 911 and Cayenne).
      "We're thinking of different options. There will be more than one model, with different levels of power." said Blume.
      Considering the Panamera begins at $85,000, we wouldn't be surprised if Porsche prices the Mission E around the $65 to $75,000 mark.
      Previously, Porsche has said the initial Mission E would have an output of 600 horsepower and a range of 300 miles.

      All CX-5s will come equipped with a 2.5L SkyActiv-G four-cylinder and six-speed automatic (sorry, no manual transmission is on offer for this generation). The 2.5 produces 187 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while Mazda's i-ACTIV all-wheel drive system adds $1,300 to the base price.
      The CX-5 Sport comes decently equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, Smart City Brake Support, 7-inch color touchscreen with Mazda Connect, push-button start, and power accessories. 
      The CX-5 Touring ($26,855) adds blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert, dual-zone climate control, leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, six-way power driver's seat, keyless entry, and auto-leveling LED headlights.
      Wrapping up the CX-5 lineup is the Grand Touring ($30,335). This model features full LED lighting outside, 19-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar, rain-sensing wipers, and heated exterior mirrors.
      Options for the CX-5 include navigation, Bose audio system, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, radar cruise control, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.
