2018 Chevrolet Sonic SS
The 2018 Chevrolet Sonic did not see a high-performance SS variant. Instead, the subcompact sedan and hatchback offers three gasoline engines without a high-performance model.
|Engine||Cylinders||Displacement||Aspiration||Fuel Type||Features||Power @ RPM||Torque @ RPM|
|LUW/LWE||4 cylinder||1.8L||Atmospheric||Gasoline||DOHC with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and sequential MFI||138 hp (103 kW) @ 6300 rpm||125 lb-ft (168.8 Nm) @ 3800|
|LUV||4 cylinder||1.4L||Turbocharged||Gasoline||DOHC with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and sequential MFI||138 hp (103 kW) @ 4900 rpm||148 lb-ft (199.8 Nm) @ 1850 rpm (auto) / 2500 rpm (manual)|
As such, a subcompact, high-performance sedan or hatchback is not part of the Chevy lineup for the 2018 model year. However, the brand continues to offer two high-performance two-door vehicles — the Camaro and Corvette.
