Canada Won't be Getting the 2014 Chevrolet SS After All


After taking the decision to transfer production of the next generation Chevrolet Camaro back to the good ol' USA, General Motors is striking another blow to our friends up North as the automaker confirmed that it will not be offering the new 2014 Chevrolet SS performance sedan in Canada.

The bad news comes via Globe and Mail, which cites GM Canada spokesperson George Saratlic as the source. In the States, Chevrolet's rear-wheel drive, 415-horsepower sports sedan will go on sale towards the end of the year in limited production numbers.

On the bright side, Chevrolet's real performance sports car, the new generation Corvette Stingray that was presented at the 2013 Canadian International Auto Show, will make up for the absence of the SS in the brand's local lineup.

In return we get the Orlando and Trax. Fair trade? I think not.

I don't think Canadians should feel anyhow bad of it - not a big loss at all! They have their home-made Mopars...

Don't worry Canadians, we here in Australia will pay over 55k for a 6.0 Litre version of the SS known as the VF Commodore SS. No LS3, but we do get the choice of a manual gearbox as will the Americans eventually. I am surprised that a manual box wasn't included at launch, especially as almost everyone who has thus far showed interest in buying one has indicated. So don't feel hard done by, Americans will pay 40-45k for an SS while we pay 55k plus on road costs which bring the price to 60k plus insurance. Oh yeah, we have a stronger dollar and we build it here! So you think you have it bad when it comes to buying a car? Think again.
