Chevrolet officially announced the pricing on the SS performance sedan today. The Zeta-based, Australian-imported sedan will start at $44,470, including a $995 destination charge. The 2014 SS will also be subject to the gas guzzler tax.
You’re probably wondering what makes the 2014 Chevy SS command a mid-$40k MSRP. For one, it’s imported from Australia. The other reason is that it’s rich in content, with a power-operated sunroof ($900) and full-size spare tire ($500) being the only options. The SS will be available in five exterior colors – Mystic Green, Silver Ice Metallic, Red Hot 2, Phantom Black Metallic and Heron White. All interiors will be Jet Black and feature sport front bucket seats, naturally.
Standard equipment includes:
- High intensity discharge headlamps with light emitting diode (LED) daytime running lamps
- Automatic Parking Assist
- Chevrolet MyLink with a color touch screen and GPS-based navigation system
- Bose premium audio system – including SiriusXM radio (with 12-month trial)

- Dual-zone automatic climate control
- Alloy pedal covers
- Heated and ventilated front seats with memory

Under the hood of the rear-wheel-drive sedan is a 415 horsepower 6.2L LS3 V8 engine, mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic. And as with the rest of Chevy’s performance car family, the brakes are of the Brembo variety, while MacPherson strut front and multi-link independent rear suspension geometry are charged with the task of keeping the handling on point.
