Chevrolet SS Priced From $44,470

Chevrolet SS Priced From $44,470

Chevrolet just announced pricing for the U.S.-exclusive SS  sport sedan.

The Holden-based rear-wheel drive car costs $44,470 including delivery and comes in a single trim package with only two extra options boxes to check. For $900, Chevrolet will toss in a power sunroof and for $500 you’ll get a full-size spare tire. Starting in the fourth quarter of this year, the SS will be available for purchase.

“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.

Powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 v8, the engine is rated at 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque, which the brand says will carry it to 60 mph in about five seconds. More notably, Chevrolet also said today that the sedan offers a near 50-50 weight distribution and low center of gravity because to an aluminum hood and rear deck lid.

Brembo front brakes with ventilated rotors are standard equipment, as are the 19-inch forged aluminum wheels. There’s only one transmission option here: a six-speed automatic.

Chevrolet also loads the car with safety features, as it should for the price, to include blind spot monitoring, a rear-vision camera with parking assistance and lane departure warning.

Dual-zone climate control, a Bose sound system, a color head-up display and HID headlights are also listed among the standard equipment.

    The $44,470 is about $4,000 more than what I had hoped for. However, when you compare apples to apples it’s really not that far off. A lot of other cars that start around in the low $30K area can easily reach the $44,470 amount after adding all of the features the SS includes as standard. A good example is my Dodge Charger R/T with everything on it was about $40K. The Chevy SS adds: 8.5-inch wide (front) and 9-inch wide (rear) forged wheels, 245/40R19 (front) and 275/35R19 (rear) tires, Automatic parking assist, Bose Premium Sound System, Sport bucket front seats, Front Brembo® brakes and maybe another item or two. Also, the SS has 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque which is 45 more than the 5.7L HEMI.
    We did lose a standard spare tire.

    Oh BTW…My answer to the question, “Would you pay $44,000 for the Chevy SS?” is YES if it looks better in person than what the photos portray.

    No manual, not interested. I’ll keep my 06 gto manual, thanks.

    I’m a diehard GM guy but why does GM make their SS sedans so closely resembling the basic version ? I mean really no hood scoop or how sbout something too really set it apart from the Non performance version. MOPAR is really winning me over ! Aside from the G8 from the past my money will be buying a Dodge if I’m in the market for a performance sedan only cuz the CTS-V is a little pricy for me.

    This is way too much money for what it is, my ’09 G8 GT cost 15K less out the door new and there is NOTHING on this car, except for the upgraded stereo and possibly the Brembos, that I want or makes it any more appealing than that G8. HUD? Lane departure system? Back up camera? Meaningless trinkets I wouldn’t have bought in ’09 if they were optional. It’s nearly five years later and there’s no meaningful technical progress here. Where is the 8 speed transmission? MIA. Where’s the AFM AND 400+ HP? In the Vette, not here! At least on the G8 you could choose between raw power (GXP) and adequate power plus better mileage via AFM (GT). This is an uglier GXP (front clip on SS has way too much plastic) with a few pointless doodads added on, no manual trans option, and a bloated price. This would need to sticker for minimum 5K less or have truly massive discounting (not likely given limited production) to get the slightest consideration as a replacement for my G8.
