I have heard the SS with be close to $55,000.00. The Cadillac ATS-V is also going to be $55,000. Anyone hear any different?

Thats just about right with the speculation from automotive media sources. If they go higher than mid $55k's it's going to be tough to justify buying it over other performance sedans as when moving up from that price you're open up to so many more vehicles!

**** looks like $55k would put me out of contention for an original owner. They were saying it'd be priced a little higher than the Impala, so I was hoping for a mid 30s starting haha.

$45,000-$55,000. But it all depends on how they option, what will GM give us with this car? Engine? Transmission? Standard Options?

If they keep the LS3 in it and they don't change the suspension or brakes then it basically makes it a direct descendant of the GXP with only bumper changes and a new interior with better appointments. For reference the GXP was $38,000-$41,000 depending on options.

I'm not too familiar with the Commodore but it seems as if it's not going to be a mono-spec model unlike the Chevrolet SS which seems to be just a mono-spec.

Commodore will probably keep a $30-40k USD starting price. SS will definitely cost us a pretty penny.

Say if someone wanted the "poor mans Chevrolet SS" what would be it? The Impala SS? I would say Caprice but its only being sold as a police interceptor to law enforcement agency's.

That's cheaper than what I was expecting. I'm liking the feel of the car, especially from the Holden release video. One can only wonder how Chevy will ruin it.

it would have to be a used one, since the Impala SS isn't made anymore.. 2009 was the last year for those...

It won't be $55K to start.

If it has the LS3 I will say $42,995 MSRP with GG tax but before destination of $995.

If it has the LT1 I all say $44,495 MSRP with GG tax but before destination of $995.

Any options of course could push it into the upper 40's near 50K. Think of Charger SRT8 pricing and it will be close.

Of course with the usual greedy dealer "marketing adjustment" gouging that will go on for the first 3 months it is out add 5K to any of those totals. Mark it down, there will be greedy dealers asking that and the sad part is some idiots will pony up that amount, just encouraging it more.

Going to be interesting with the pricing. That will determine if I get this or a pre- owned CTS-V.

I have a G8 GXP (6M) and a CTS-V (6M). If the refinement of the SS is like the CTS-V, it might be somewhat tempting. However, the handling difference between the two is like nigth and day. The chassis on the V is much stiffer, fantastic turn in and the magnetic dampers are awesome.

I'm a G8 fan, but the CTS-V is is another league for now. I was hoping the SS would have the LSA and maybe magnetic dampers (a true 4 door ZL-1).

The Gxp was 43 back in 09, this can't be less than that. We now know it is the ls3 with color and sun roof the only options. I'm assuming 45-47k. If they go too much more, you can look at the cts-v. I'm waiting for the manual. I was going to upgrade the g8gt after a few years, but killing Pontiac fixed that. I will hold off for the manual now.

I can't see a an MSRP of more than $40K. The standard spec sheet has only 1 option and that's a sunroof. Unless that changes I don't see the support of a price more than this. The tech in this car is not new so the price to produce should be low (1st year vs. say 6th year of production). Anything more than this and they lose ground to competitors. In it's current state it's not an SRT fighter so it shouldn't be at that price point. It's not an SRT Core figher either because it has more content (but less power). So with that, pricing will be key and the number is 40 to make me consider.

A comparable (as far possible) Camaro 2SS with 1LE pkg., RS pkg. and Nav. comes in at about $44K on the sticker. That's my guess.

You can argue about the 1LE, but figure the Chevy SS will have Brembo brakes std. along with a lot of upgraded features, HID, 10 way seats, dimming mirrors, etc. Not to mention the extra $1,000 you have to pay for the Automatic in a Camaro SS. Just a guess.....

Forbes website said $27,535 i'm guessing it was a typo and is really $37,535 for a base SS with no moonroof.

Seems like GODADDY 10 blue Daytona 500 SS's and Danica Patrick drives the #10 SS...;)

$27 535 would be awesome but wayyy too unrealistic. $37 535 is probably it.

I wonder what people think of the Chevrolet SS being priced at $37 535.

That is what a lot of us have speculated it at, starting with what automotive sites stated it would be priced at which is just about $45-50k.


Hopefully it'll be cheaper, as we'd all hope it will be.

I'm going with my guess from earlier in the thread. $42,995 MSRP before destination.
