Even though we’ve pretty much known that GM was bringing the Holden Commodore to America as a Chevy performance sedan for around two years, there are still a lot of questions surrounding the details of the 2014 Chevy SS. Other than the starting MSRP of $44,470, what options, packages, and special editions might GM be offering with this new addition to the Chevy lineup?
Well now we have some of those precious details, courtesy of SSforums.com, which leaked the 2014 Chevy SS order guide. And well, quite frankly, we are feeling a wee bit underwhelmed.
Generally a new car launch necessitates some special edition models, or at least a few sticker packages to celebrate the birth of a brand new car. But nope, the Chevy SS gets none of that. In fact, if anything, the order guide is important for noting how limited the options on the Chevy SS are. With just five color choices, a $900 sunroof option, and a $500 spare tire (!?!), your options are, well, almost non-existent.
This has us a bit baffled. While Europe and Australia are both getting a 576 horsepower version of the Chevy SS, called the Vauxhall VXR8, and the Holden HSV GTS respectively, America is left wanting with the 415 horsepower Chevy SS. Maybe GM is waiting for the 2015 model year to roll out this supercharged Chevy? Or will America once again be left looking at greener pastures?
