We all have extreme doubts that the Chevrolet SS will actually be priced under $30,000, let alone $40,000. But Americans can still take comfort in that it will cost far less than what Australians will be asked to be pay for the Holden Commodore SS V — the most comparable model to the Chevy.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald’s Drive section, Australian are poised to pay $10,000 more for a VF Commodore SS V than what Americans will pay for a Chevrolet SS. Currently, the outgoing VE Commodore SS V sells for $55,290 ASD, with expectations of the prices to change with the new model to be marginal. Meanwhile, the Chevy SS is estimated to cost $45,000 USD — a price Chevrolet chief engineer David Leone subtly hinted at to the paper — when it launches in the final quarter of this year.

Those with good memories may recall that the Pontiac G8 was about $10,000 cheaper than an equivalent Commodore as well. Too bad we never got our G8 ST.

Oh man I hope you're right. I really want that car, but it'd be great not to have to pay full boat.

This is pure speculation designed to trigger a reaction in Australia rather than give any real information. It is designed to support the argument that Holden are gouging Australians because they can sell into the US at so much cheaper.

The bottom line is that certifying and supporting any car for a market that sells around 1 million RHD vehicles a year is going to be expensive. Every car costs more here than in the US. A BMW M3 is $200K here, $60K in the US. Based on the BMW price gouging model, an SS should cost $18K ...:D
