When the 2014 Chevrolet SS makes its grand arrival later this year, it will by rights land with the same kind of wallop as the long-awaited 2014 Corvette Stingray.
Quite simple – the 2014 SS is something of a retro throwback that delivers true Chevy muscle car performance while at the same time serving up ample room, comfort and amenities for the whole family. And of course, all of the above adds up to the best excuse in the world for thousands of dad with unfulfilled Daytona 500 dreams to justify investing in a beast of an auto.
The 2014 Chevrolet SS echoes the very origins of GM when rear-wheel drive and planet-moving power were pretty much the standards to work by. It doesn’t just end with principles either, as the 2014 SS has been clearly influenced in many ways by the likes of the Chevrolet Caprice.
More than just a way of showing off or appealing to a market that’s been neglected for the past 17 years, the 2014 Chevy SS is in many ways a means a physical manifestation of GM’s rise from the ashes and its return to the company it used to be. In years to come, the 2014 SS will be remembered as a car that not only stirred the soul with echoes of the past, but also represented a solid cornerstone in the history of the automaker and a confident statement about its future roadmap.
Together with the likes of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, the new SS is as much about celebrating a return to the company’s roots as it is about shifting units across the US. That being said, when it hits the market later this year the 2014 SS will indeed be one of the fastest and most powerful sedans in America, so chances are it won’t fare too badly in terms of sales.
