2013, or the 2014 model year to be more precise, seems to be the year of the small block V8 for Chevrolet. They’re going to launch not only a new Corvette sportscar powered by the stuff, but also a brand new Silverado 1500 truck.

They will also be joined by the Chevy SS, the first rear-wheel drive Chevrolet-branded sedan sold in America in a while. The SS will make its debut on the track as well, in the 2013 NASCAR series.

Although the SS is basically an Australian Holden Commodore with a different body, General Motors North America President Mark Reuss has high hopes for the car and says it’s like a “a four door Corvette”.

No production figure has yet been set, though relatively low volume is expected, somewhere between 10,000 to 15,000 units a year.

“We’re thinking about the Chevrolet showroom,” Reuss said. “We have no sedan that is a high-performance sedan. That’s the void that the SS fills. We’re not going to rank order of performance by model or any of that stuff. The Corvette will naturally always be the fastest high-performance thing we do. When you start laddering performance, it’s a very dangerous game.”

The new Chevy SS will be sharing its body lines from Holden as for it being a four door corvette... **** yeah! For a sedan this sucker will be packing a punch and turn necks when you floor it to reveal the sound of its power. A low volume will help determine how this interest there is in this kind of "performance sedan" market.

Why would it be a 4 door vette?? If anything I would call it a 4 door Camaro atleast they are on the same platform.
Kind of, but not really. The Camaro is on an altered, shortened Zeta I platform while the SS will be on the new, light weight Zeta II platform. The Camaro is a pig regardless!

Good point, the Camaro is really a pig, much like the Mustang :D

I don't think the Chevy SS will completely fit our profile of what a "four-door corvette" would actually be like but it's the only Chevy sedan what will come close to that status.

I'm sure the 2014 chevy ss will have some similarities to the C7 Corvette, just don't know what.
