The SS is the first Chevrolet-badged V8 sedan launched in the last 17 years, yet it seems GM is not all that content with it and will not give it a follow-up model.
It was confirmed to Motoring, on the sidelines of the SEMA show in Las Vegas, when they asked for information on a possible next rear-driven Holden Commodore (now a rebadged SS).
We (almost) know for a fact that the next Commodore will be an Opel Insignia based model (or a rebadged Buick made in China), and therefor fwd-biased and unable to carry a V8 under its bonnet. It will be a very different vehicle to the current Commodore/SS and it will be curious to see what GM replaces it with in the US.
On top of this, it was also confirmed that there won’t be a right-hand drive version of the new 2016 Camaro. The source says it’s not yet 100 percent certain, but that it’s “highly unlikely” that it will happen. Meanwhile, the globally-minded Ford Mustang will have free reign in all RHD markets…
