Chevrolet SS Described as “Four Door Corvette”
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.”
