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
BoseŽ 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.

About where I expected, which is unfortunately a little too high for what you end up getting. Realistically, the SS slots somewhere between the SRT8 and the R/T Charger not exactly a direct competitor to either of them. But GM is asking SRT8 prices for the car. If they could have managed to get it in at 40 grand, I think it would be just about right. But since its being built in Australia, I'm sure production & transportation costs are quite high -explaining the price. But that doesn't make worth its MSRP from a customer stand point

Ok, basically priced the same as a Charger SRT8. So, just under $50K out the door after GG and sales taxes and what not. I've wanted a Chevy RWD V8 sedan for years but for $50K it needs to be exactly what I want. I think for just under $50K I'd like a manual and something more than a refreshed G8. Chevy has had hit after hit in terms of styling with the Camaro, Malibu, Impala, Cruze and new Vette. It's a shame the SS looks kinda homely next to them.

I think Chevy's gotta make the car here in North America to make the math work. Ford is pulling out of Australia b/c it's just too expensive to make the cars there. Holden needs to do the same.

If they ever get a manual it might come down a little. But after looking at the standard options, and the fact that it is made to order only, this is about where I expected it to be.

Silver is just about the worst color for this car.
