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.
