Chevrolet announced that the 2014 SS sport sedan will cost of $44,470, including shipping. The options offered for the SS sports sedan are quite simple: a sunroof, which costs $900 and a full-sized spare tire ($400). As expected, the 2014 Chevrolet SS sports sedan offers plenty of standard equipment, such as high intensity discharge headlamps, Automatic Parking Assist, Chevrolet MyLink with a colour touch screen and GPS-based navigation system, Bose premium audio system, color head-up display, 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.

Furthermore, the SS sports sedan comes with the LS3 6.2-liter small-block V8 with 415 hp (310 kW) and 415 lb-ft of torque (563 Nm). With these numbers the vehicle sprints from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds. The SS uses a six-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually using TAPshift paddles mounted on the steering wheel.

The 2014 Chevrolet 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 the most expensive sedan when it will go on sale in the fourth quarter. Moreover, the 2014 Chevrolet SS is cheaper than its main competitors, the Chrysler 300 SRT8 ($47,240) and the Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee ($45,270).

“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.” [source: Chevrolet]
