2014 Chevrolet SS sports sedan priced at $44,470

Article by Christian A., on June 5, 2013

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.

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.

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 inside of the Chevrolet SS has enough space for a total of five adults to sit in comfort. This is mainly due to the legroom in the front offering space of 42.3 inches (1,074 mm) with the rear legroom measuring 39.7 inches (1,008 mm). Standard features include the seating surfaces wrapped in leather. Standard as well is the power adjustable eight-way bucket seats in the front.

The seats in the front come with extra side bolstering that, when under tight-handling scenarios, appear to hug not only the driver but even the passenger sitting in the front. Going to the exterior, the Chevrolet SS reveals an excellent mix of premium details and performance cues. With the wheels on both the front and the rear being positioned out of the corners, it helps improve the muscular and athletic stance of this model.

Looking at the front section, the aluminum hood has that hint of that “power bulge” as if to show just how capable the engine fitted to it is. The rear section meanwhile has that narrow and tear-drop shape, allowing the aerodynamic performance to be enhanced. This section shows a number of premium cues like the chrome accents which look like jewels. There is also the daytime running lights which use light-emitting diode and the high-intensity discharge headlamps, both included as standard. On its sides, there is a character line which begins from the hood and ends at the trunk lid.

This not only gives the vehicle that classic wedge form but at the same time highlights this model’s planted look and the muscular sheet metal. The side reveals as well that the entire vehicle narrows at the rear with the C-pillar flowing to the deck lid. This is not unexpected as this design cue is one that other sedans from Chevrolet also have. Putting more emphasis on the design of the rear section are the bright dual-exhaust tips.

These same exhausts are able to deliver on the sound that performance enthusiasts want from the vehicle they are driving. For the SS, Chevrolet said that a total of five colors will be offered for the exterior. These are Heron White, Mystic Green Metallic, Phantom Black, Red Hot 2, and Silver Ice Metallic.
