THE 2014 CHEVROLET SS
In late 2013, Chevrolet will add an all-new sport sedan to its already impressive performance car lineup with the debut of the 2014 Chevrolet SS. The Chevrolet SS is the first rear-wheel-drive sedan to enter the Chevrolet portfolio in 17 years. Engineered for performance enthusiasts seeking an exhilarating driving experience while providing luxurious space, comfort and convenience for up to five adults, this V8 sedan will also serve as Chevrolet’s winning entry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™. The Chevrolet SS will debut at Daytona International Speedway® on Saturday, February 16, 2013, and will begin arriving in showrooms late this year.

The design aesthetic for the Chevrolet SS is elegantly athletic. Strong, contemporary yet refined shapes are sculpted with restrained sensitivity from the muscular rear-wheel drive proportions. Flowing lines begin at the aggressive front fascia and integrated HID headlamps that flow into a sleek mid-section and give way to a tapered rear that helps to manage airflow. Bulging pronounced fender flares and its low wide stance divulge its high-performance underpinnings.
Polished aluminum alloy 19" x 8.5" front wheels up front and 19" x 9" wheels in back wrapped in ultra-high performance summer only tires† plant its athletic stance, emphasizing its rear-wheel-drive capability.
Restrained, but muscular, the Chevrolet SS is a sophisticated machine.
Add to this the immense power of a GM-estimated 415-horsepower 6.2L V8, a 6-speed automatic transmission with the control of TAPshift® and StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control, and the traction of a limited slip rear differential which together 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.
Unlike the competition, the production Chevrolet SS has the same rear-wheel-drive small block V8 configuration as its NASCAR® brother. With Chevrolet SS, one gets upscale luxury mixed with some serious racetrack DNA.

Innovation has to have purpose before novelty. The Chevrolet SS is loaded with technological features keeping drivers connected to the outside world as well as safe inside the vehicle.
The intelligent key fob allows for passive entry and push-button start that makes beginning your drive effortless. It’s 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.
Furthering innovation and convenience, the Chevrolet SS can virtually park itself. Automatic Parking Assist provides hands-free parking by accurately detecting space and working with you to steer into the space.
Hand-wrapped soft leather-appointed 10-way power seats are heated and ventilated allowing customization to different driver preferences.
A color Head-Up Display projects vital information like your speed, turn-by-turn navigation, and more. Projected on the windshield directly within your field of vision, this display keeps you informed while your eyes are safely on the road.
The Chevrolet SS is not only a smart car but also a safe one. It proactively protects from the unexpected with features like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, advanced and active safety systems that employ a digital camera to help drivers avoid front-end collisions. The systems trigger audible alerts if other vehicles are approaching too rapidly or if a collision appears imminent. Other SS visibility aids include Side Blind Zone Alert and a Rear Vision Camera with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The whole time you’re driving, the SS is thinking.
