2017 Chevrolet SS
8-cyl. 376cid/415hp SFI
With an experienced team and a lot of data.
The Chevrolet SS production run only lasted four years, and 2017 marked its final one. The high-powered sedan, based on an Australian market Holden Commodore, was the only GM car to wear the prided “SS” designation as a standalone model. It backed up the badge with outstanding performance. The 2017 Chevrolet SS carried a base price of $49,000.
The SS is powered by the 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 sourced from the Chevrolet Corvette. In this setup, it puts out 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque, routed to the rear wheels. The SS came equipped with a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters, but a 6-speed manual transmission was available.
More than just a straight-line machine, the SS can carve corners thanks to standard Magnetic Ride Control. This system can adjust the firmness of the suspension with three drive modes. Brembo four-wheel disc brakes rounded out the package.
The SS comes exceptionally well-equipped on the inside as well. Standard features include synthetic leather seating, dual-zone climate control, a Bose premium stereo, and even a Wi-Fi hot spot. The SS also comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with standard navigation. Aside from the available manual transmission, the only other options on the SS were a full-size spare tire and a power sunroof.
In addition to standard cabin features, the 2017 Chevy SS features all the modern driver assistance features. These include forward collision avoidance, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and even a head-up display.
