It’s the end of the line for a special car. We’ve already detailed what a missed opportunity the 2015 Chevrolet SS is in the United States, but we’re not here to talk about that today. Instead, we’ve gotten a look at the 2016 Chevrolet SS order guide, and there’s a new color for the 2016 SS on its way.
Slipstream Blue is currently being worn on a few 2015 VF Holden Commodore test vehicles across Oz, and the order guide lists the color as a new option for the 2016 Chevy SS. Slipstream is a darker, more “true blue” than “Perfect Blue,” which is currently the color offered in the blue family of hues. The document does not list Perfect Blue as an option for 2016, at least for fleets, but it would seem silly to offer two blues on such a niche car in the U.S.
The 2016 Chevrolet SS is also poised for refreshed looks up front, as the 2016 Commodore Series II has already been spied alongside a prototype wearing the bowtie. We’re still holding out for a more hardcore Chevrolet SS package here in the U.S., possibly via HSV, before the car is sent to the vast automotive graveyard.
Photos of the color have been posted to a global Holden fan page, which may be found here. Let us know in the comments if you are digging Slipstream Blue, or if Perfect Blue was a better match for the Chevrolet SS/VF Commodore duo.
