Parking the rear-drive, V8-powered SS in your driveway will require at least $44,470 (including destination) – Chevrolet says the full-size four-door will be subject to a gas-guzzler tax, so expect the total price to be somewhat higher depending on the final EPA fuel economy ratings.
The SS will be offered in a single, fully-loaded trim level. Standard features will include Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with navigation, a color head-up display, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, HID headlights and a nine-speaker Bose audio system.
Options are limited to a $900 sunroof and a $500 full-size spare time.
Of course, the SS’ main claim to fame is its 6.2-liter V8, which sends 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Chevrolet says the setup should be good for a zero-to-60 mph time of around five seconds.
The SS will begin arriving on dealer lots during the fourth quarter of 2013.
