Earlier this week at the pre-Daytona 500 festivities, Chevrolet unveiled the long-awaited SS, a rear-wheel drive performance sedan. Commemoratively, the 2014 SS showed up along with the SS racecar which made its first NASCAR debut at the Daytona 500.
The new performance sedan is the derivative of three General Motors powerhouses: The Camaro, Caprice Police Car, and the Holden brand’s VG Comodore. GM wanted to add a new car to the Camaro and Corvette to expand their current performance offerings. According to GM North America President Mark Reuss, the 2014 Chevrolet SS is an impressive and unique addition to the Chevrolet lineup.
“The comfort, convenience, spaciousness, and V8 power make the SS a total performance package unlike any other on the road today.”
The new SS performance sedan brings back stealthy memories as the Chevrolet name was shaped by these rear wheel drive machines. It’s been almost two decades since GM has released a rear wheel drive sedan.
Although Chevrolet and performance enthusiasts are excited about its arrival, GM isn’t expecting a large demand for the SS. It will be available sparingly at various dealerships across the U.S. Visit Fred Caldwell Chevrolet online for availability information and be sure to tune in to this Sunday’s Daytona 500 for a second glimpse at the Chevrolet SS.
