The all-new Chevrolet SS sedan will not be heading to Canada, General Motors has confirmed.

Going on sale later this year in America, Canadians won’t be able to enjoy the new 415 hp, 415 lb-ft of torque SS that’s powered by the American automaker’s 6.2-liter V8 engine.

The announcement comes as a surprise to those north of the border as the car’s predecessor, the Pontiac G8, was offered in the true north strong and free.

The SS sedan won’t be the only model that has a discrepancy between the American and Canadian markets. In Canada, Chevrolet offers the Trax and Orlando, both of which aren’t available in America. But in this case, Canada is definitely getting the short end of the stick. Americans surely aren’t sulking over not being able to buy a Trax or Orlando.

    As a GM (pre 1996 models) fan, I don't care for this car or any new GM model, the shapes are ugly, the management is poor, and Canadians can enjoy a Charger SRT-8 which is a lot better looking The frond end, the rear, the dash. Compare the two, you'll go for the star over bowtie.
