General Motors expects to have their 2014 Chevrolet SS sports sedan on the market by year’s end, and excitement is brewing as a result of reports that production has begun in Australia on the Holden assembly line. Motoring.com.au, has reported that this week marked the beginning of SS production but had no comment regarding whether or not shipment to the U.S. has commenced.
The Holden website article regarding the new Chevy SS also discusses the car’s production capacity. While GM made preliminary plans to manufacture between 10,000-15,000 sedans per year, Holden managing director Mike Devereux’s response expressed a more open-ended standpoint. “We will build as many as they want,” reported Devereux. “And I think Americans are going to love that car.”
With a spacious interior, rear wheel drive, and small block V8 engine configuration to match its racetrack counterpart, we think Devereux is absolutely right. What’s not to love about zero to 60 in five seconds flat?
Are you ready for yet another big Chevrolet reveal? 2013 has proved to be a big year for General Motors with the unveiling of the 2014 Silverado, 2014 Corvette Stingray, 2014 SS, and now the 2014 Camaro.
The Camaro rounds of the trio of new performance cars Chevy will offer next year. It joins its two powerful brothers, the Corvette Stingray and the Chevy SS.
Chevrolet has kept mum on the exact specs on the refreshed 2014 Camaro but experts say the new muscle car will house a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6. Models with this type of engine currently produce 355 horsepower.
While experts and enthusiasts continue to speculate, the 2014 Chevy Camaro will make its debut at the New York Auto Show next week. The International Auto Show in New York starts on March 29 and the cars will stick around the Big Apple until April 7.

This weekend kicks off the NASCAR season and Chevrolet headed back to its roots for a special debut. The double-car debut features the 2014 Chevrolet SS performance sedan racing alongside the SS racecar, Chevrolet’s entry into the NASCAR Spring Cup series.
The 2014 SS will house the LS3 V8 engine pulling 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft. of torque. It is a perfect mix between the Chevy Camaro, the Caprice Patrol Car, and Chevrolet’s subsidiary brand Holden’s VF Commodore.
The rear-wheel drive performance sedan is nostalgia central for the Chevrolet brand. It’s been close to twenty years since they’ve released anything similar to the new SS.
“The Chevrolet brand was largely built on the strength of rear-drive performance sedans, yet it’s been 17 years since we’ve offered one,” says Mark Reuss, GM North America President. Reuss notes the SS is well worth the wait and sufficiently embodies Chevrolet’s rich history.
Chevrolet is already reliving history at this year’s Daytona 500, who else do you think will make history on Sunday?
