No, the whole point of the SS nameplate is because the car will have a standard V8 powertrain.

That does bring up the issue of what will happen if a V6 model ever materializes.

Or they could just remove all confusion completely and name the car what it really is.

Chevrolet Commodore.

I've always liked BelAir

Name recognition is too important to marketing these days, more people recognize the SS nameplate than LS/LT.

LS and LT have been around for a long time too. Not nearly as long as SS but for over 30 years.

Because G8 was a VE Commodore. This is a VF Commodore.

True true. From a marketing stand point I'm still not sure why the ZL1 wasn't called a Z28 but obviously they know something I don't because its selling well regardless.

Like I said, they are saving it for the 6th gen to replace the ZL1
