Those hoping to see a Chevrolet SS at their dealer might be waiting for awhile. Edmunds is reporting that the first batch of SS sedans that will be arriving later this year is small. John Fitzpatrick, Chevrolet's marketing manager for the Camaro, Corvette, and SS says that about 900 SS sedans will be available to dealers. That brings forward a problem; there are about 3,000 Chevrolet dealers in the U.S. and with only 900 SSs available, this presents a big problem.
How will General Motors dole out SS sedans? By looking at the sales of the Camaro and Corvette at each dealer.
"If you have a niche selling those cars, you are going to get a bigger percentage than somebody who doesn't sell Camaros and Corvettes," Fitzpatrick explained.
