2014 Chevrolet SS Full Test
Edmunds' full test of the 2014 Chevrolet SS includes on-road driving impressions, specs, photos, instrumented test data and more.
P.S. Please Chevy do something about that gold bowtie. Make it black or blue or gray...I see it and I still think "rental car." And it's your own fault for making pathetic cars for years.
Your universal health care is great, boff -- until you get sick. You keep it and we'll keep the SS thanks
I would trade our POTUS for your metric system though...
Regarding healthcare: When has it *EVER* been a good idea to have more government involvement in anything, and when has it *EVER* made anything better? Why not a pool of uninsurable people that insurance companies are required to insure based on the number of people in the pool and the number of regular customers they have? Let govt monitor the pool and make sure all of the companies are doing what they should, which is about the only thing that govt does remotely well.
And the fuel economy - GM's v8's have always gotten very nice highway mileage but it's not happening here. Not sure why. And again, it matches my 13 year old BMW engine.
That all being said, I pray this vehicle makes it to the U.S. -
As for 1krider1, so GM gives you a full size LS3 powered RWD sedan with a Cadillac quality interior for half the price of the German makers and you complain about the price? That type of quality and performance has never been the price of a college car like the Camaro and never will - no matter what badge it wears.
Oh, and glad they upped the interior quality lately, that has always been one of my main GM issues but these new ones look pretty good.
I personally would buy this car, and just not option it with the lane departure warning, park assist, etc. I don't want that stuff. It adds complexity and cost to the vehicle, when I'm perfectly happy just being a vigilant driver and parallel parking myself.
Performance isn't enough.
All the German sedans look better. The Chrysler/Dodge twins look better.
How about GM builds an American (US) Icon in the USA what a novel comcept
I'm sorry, but no matter how good the car is, this thing looks like a loser out of the gate. Good thing they have fleet sales!
Except Canadians, don't have to wait until they get reall sick to see a doctor.
This is a nice car with unfortunately a very mundane design. An ATS-V is a better car, but it's so much smaller it's hard to see how that comparison makes much sense. All kind of strange comparisons can be made with used vehicles, what other NEW car in the same category is a better buy?
Now GM comes along with this in exactly one niche trim that'll sell all of 2,000 cars a year.
Where's the profit in such a low volume? When 3000-5000% higher volume is no further away than more affordable trim levels.
I realize they'd rather sell an Impala instead but what they're actually selling is another Charger.
You were right about the life exp: Canada is 82, and the US is 79. I wonder how many young soldiers dying trying to keep democracy safe in the world drag that age down? I'll have to research. Also, the Canadian taxes are an issue as well, from the "tea bagger" bastion, CBS News: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/canadas-favorite-tax-haven-the-usa/
Anyway, we have more than enough Canadians in FL, so feel free to stay there and enjoy your gubmint cheese, oops, healthcare.
It has been ROmneycare in my state for years. You remember Mittens rights? That draft dodging dbag that was the best the retardlicunts had to offer!
Great plan, don't buy an Sbox GM, get a different Sbox GM!
Space, comfort, content, power, handling, steering feel, safety, what exactly do you think you need a manual for with 415hp in real world driving? You think this thing bogs down in any gear on your daily grocery run or commute?
If they sell 3,000 a year, that means they'd sell 300 manuals. It's not even a rounding error.
As for the "Camaro" price point... hey, if it can spank an M5 on a country backroad (not just a light-to-light straight line, which is what Top Gear thinks we 'Muricans all regard as 'racing'), $45K is a steal. I may just get one to show up my BMW-addicted coworker, who dropped nearly twice that on his car.
