We were never quite holding our breath for a replacement surrounding the beloved 2017 Chevrolet SS, but we always held a small glimmer of hope. However, Chevrolet dashed those hopes by officially confirming the SS sedan will exit production by the end of 2017.
“Using the old adage, ‘win on Sunday, buy on Monday,’ we decided that in small numbers we’d introduce it the U.S. because we could, frankly, at a pretty low cost,” Batey told reporters Monday after introducing the new Chevrolet Traverse. “I would say the vehicle has been really well-received. It’s small volumes, but it’s been really well-received.”
Chevrolet currently uses the SS sedan as its NASCAR stock car, but the brand has not commented on what will replace the vehicle for the racing series. Over three years, total production of the SS performance sedan will likely come in just under 10,000 units built and sold.
