In the video-review of the 2014 Chevrolet SS from The Smoking Tire that we posted last night, Matt Farah expressed the opinion that, to fix the V8-powered sports saloon's main weakness, the lack of (styling) attitude, you need to get it in black and place some more aggressive wheels and rubber on all four corners.

In your opinion, what's the biggest complaint about GM's new 2014 Chevrolet SS, and to some extent, its Holden Commodore brethren? If you ask Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire, it’s the lack of pizazz in the styling department – he says "it looks exactly like a Malibu". I wouldn't fully agree on the last statement, but I think he's right overall.

Chevrolet's SEMA Corvette Stingray, Camaro and SS Concepts


Read more

There are so many Chevrolet concepts heading to the Las Vegas Strip this week for the SEMA motor show that GM has opted to issue separate releases depending on the category they belong to. Today and following the announcements on Chevy's truck and passenger car studies, the bow and tie brand is affording us a first look at its sports and performance models.

Naturally, the spotlight is on the new 2014 Corvette Stingray that will be represented by three editions, starting with the 460hp Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo concept built to commemorate the game's 15th anniversary.

Which One Would You Get: 577HP Holden HSV GTS or 355HP Mercedes CLA45 AMG?

There are many reasons for which imported cars (especially luxury models) are very expensive in Australia: it’s a remote country with a relatively small automobile market, it drives on the left side of the road and it has high import duties.

All these factors contribute to surreal prices. Take the Mercedes CLA45 AMG for example: it costs AU$86,900 (US$82,165) in Australia, compared to US$48,355 in the United States.

GM Prices New Commodore-Based 2014 Chevrolet SS V8 from $44,470


Read more

Do you miss the Pontiac G8 and can't find a decent used example? GM has you covered as it has re-introduced the revised version of the Holden Commodore-based sports sedan in the States in the guise of the new 2014 Chevrolet SS, pricing of which was announced today before it goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Available exclusively in the United States (sorry Canada) with a 6.2-liter V8 paired to a 6-speed automatic (sorry manual gearbox fans), the SS carries an MSRP of $44,470, including a $995 destination charge, which makes it cheaper than a similarly powered BMW 5-Series model, but on the same level as the smaller and less powerful 300hp 335i sedan ($44,075 with destination).

The 2014 Chevrolet SS is a rear-wheel-drive performance sedan that promises to be the car the brand’s fans have long been waiting for. Whether or not it will live up to the hype, remains to be seen.

Poll: Should Chevrolet Supercharge the SS with a ZL1 Edition?


Read more

When Josh and I were exchanging thoughts about our 'Future Car' rendering of the 2014 Chevrolet SS last December, we decided to go with a ZL1-like version instead of the regular model, which we both saw as a potential addition to the range.

Once again, Josh performed his magic and correctly predicted the shape and styling details of the base SS and therefore, the Holden Commodore SS V as well, decorating the end result with all those special features one expects from a Z series Chevy,  including a ground effects kit, different bumper, honeycomb grille inserts and a bulging hood scoop – just like on the Camaro ZL1 and Corvette ZR1.

Poll: 2014 Chevrolet SS vs. Dodge Charger vs. Chrysler 300


Read more

For sure, there are plenty of sporty flavored, rear-wheel drive sedans in the market, but the first two cars that come to mind as direct competitors to the new 2014 Chevrolet SS are without question, the 2013 Dodge Charger and the 2013 Chrysler 300.

General Motors won't be releasing prices for its bow-tie-badged Holden Commodore SS V until later this year, though, we anticipate to the SS to carry a similar price tag to its Chrysler Group challengers in the non-luxury, rear-wheel drive performance sedan category.

It looks like Holden is trying to grab as much attention as it can with the new generation Commodore VF by spreading out the presentations for each different model of the range.
