Even though the 2015 model year Chevrolet SS is rumored to get a six-speed manual and magnetic ride control for added sportiness, under the skin you'll find a a bulletproof reliable and torquey 6.2-liter LS3 V8 motor from the Chevrolet C6 Corvette. 420 horsepower and 563 Nm (415 lb-ft) doesn't seem like much, but that sort of available oomph is certain to put a smile on your face whenever you press the loud pedal a little bit firmer.
Moreover, even the competitively priced base model comes full o' kit from the get-go, highlights including leather-wrapped and heated seats, Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen infotainment, a head-up display and an assortment of passive and active safety features. For what it's worth, the Super Sport is something like the American no-frills version of the way more expensive and geeky precision tool known as the BMW M4.
Mike Quincy from Consumer Reports singled out very few flaws with the model in question, chief among which is that the 2014 Chevrolet SS is a bit of a heavy drinker of high octane gasoline, but that's to be expected from a heavy V8 brawler like the Super Sport.
