I would be very shocked if they kept the name "SS".

Ok let's be real, we know that the official name is the "SS". But us that know better know it's really a "Caprice aka G8". And it looks sexy regardless from what I have seen so far!

Does that make the SS the civilian form of the Caprice PPV?

People it's not the same car as the Caprice or G8 this is based on the car that replaces that model. They were the VE Commodore, the SS is the VF Commodore.

Whatever the name is, I am very excited for this car! ESPECIALLY if you can swap a G8 front fascia on it!

to me the g8 style was one of the best be for the camaro. i would love to have one of the new 14 ss or what ever they call it. but would rather have the 6th gen z/28 if it happens.

At first I liked the idea of just calling it a Camaro and it either having a V6 or a V8 in it (meaning no "Z28" name), but now if they bring back the Z28 name it should go like this:

Z28 = V8
Camaro = V6

Isn't that how it was for the 3rd and 4th Generations?

Yes. That's the problem GM has put themselves in with so few V8 options available. They are trying to use these iconic badges from the past but they can't do it the right way and end up doing it wrong.

Z/28 as a base V8 on the 4th gen which people hate and the SS is now the base V8.
