Chevrolet ever so quietly revealed the 2016 SS performance sedan in the wake of news the Holden V8 sedan would be a thing of the past after 2017. And what you see here will most likely be the last Chevrolet sedan to be offered with rear-wheel drive, a V8 engine and a manual gearbox.
The 2016 Chevrolet SS follows suit with the 2016 VF Holden Commodore Series II, and receives nearly all of the updates from Oz. Those updates include a slightly revised front fascia with sculpted bumper inlets to send air over the wheel wells. The new bumper also ditches the foglights for LED lighting.
Since the Chevrolet SS has always been powered by the 6.2-liter LS3 V8, Chevy decided to add a new Super Sport badge to the lower-front clip, where the 2016 VF Series II receives an Oz-specific LS3 badge to signify the new power down under.
Out back, it’s much the same, with the 2016 Chevrolet SS even foregoing the new-clear lenses the 2016 Commodore Series II received. Though, the quad-exhaust tips spruce things up with the car’s new bi-modal exhaust, controllable from an interior dial.
