ALL-NEW 2014 CHEVROLET SS REKINDLES PERFORMANCE SEDAN HERITAGE

As Chevrolet's first V-8, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan since 1996, the new Chevrolet SS is designed to deliver performance on the street and on the track. It joins the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray and revamped 2014 Camaro to broaden America's favorite performance brand.

The new SS benefits from the proven, race-tested, global rear-wheel drive architecture that is the foundation for the Camaro, Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle and Holden's VF Commodore.

It is powered by the LS3 Chevrolet V-8, delivering an estimated 415 horsepower (310 kW) and 415 lb.-ft. of torque (563 Nm), and is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually using TAPshift paddles mounted on the steering wheel.

With an aggressive 3.27 final-drive ratio, the Chevrolet SS accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds -- making it one of the quickest sedans on the market. And to ensure it turns and stops as well as it accelerates; the Chevrolet SS also features a sport-tuned chassis, including: MacPherson strut front and multi-link independent rear suspension geometry Electronic power steering system, optimized for sport driving Standard Brembo front brakes, with ventilated, 355-mm rotors and two-piece, four-piston calipers Forged aluminum wheels, wrapped in ultra-high-performance Bridgestone tires: 19 x 8.5-inch wheels with 245/40ZR19 tires in front; 19 x 9-inch wheels with 275/35ZR19 tires at the rear.

Handling is also optimized with a nearly 50/50 weight distribution and a low center of gravity -- attributes made possible in part by the aluminum hood and rear deck lid that are 30 percent lighter than traditional steel panels.

kinda surprised only now im seeing what the Chevy SS instrument cluster looks like, and im not liking it, a bit too retro looking to me, i wish chevy kept it modern but yet again looks like something from the spare parts bin, sad.

I sat in one yesterday (SSV) and retro is something that didn't come to mind.
But I have to pull Chevrolet up on what has to be the worst photography ever done on a new car (I'm an advertising photographer). The interior shots look like they were done in 2 seconds flat with professional lighting completely non existent.
I can only assume the hapless photographer wasn't given enough time with the car :sad:

I think the interior shots are actually rendered computer graphics and not real interior photographs. I have sat in a Calais V, SSV Redline and they are definitely not retro with regards to the Dash Cluster.
I also scored seat time in a Clubby R8 on the road (couln't rip the grin off of my face :D ) and the Cluster is a unique HSV design which modifies the VF Cluster and adds extra features.
