If you’re eager to get your hands on a 2017 Chevrolet SS, we’d advise you to move with a quickened pace. Rumor has it the order window will be closing shortly, and General Motors will bring just 1,000 SS sedans stateside for its final model year.
But, we have our first look at the two new exterior colors coming thanks to some amateur shots from outside the Elizabeth plant. Feast your eyes on Orange Blast Metallic (which seems to be a community favorite) and Nightfall Gray Metallic, as seen on other various Chevrolet vehicles.
The two new colors will join the lineup of oddball paint hues found on the Chevrolet SS through its entire product cycle, but since Orange Blast Metallic will be a one-model-year and final-model-year thing, it could end up being a very special car to own.
As for additional updates to the 2017 Chevrolet SS, we expect them to be tepid if there are any at all. Despite our previous intel of the 2017 SS being a potential candidate for the 6.2-liter LSA supercharged V8 engine, it seems that has fallen through.
However, our source states there are a handful of LSA engines collecting dust with no planned use as of now. Maybe a limited run of LSA SS sedans could still be possible? We’d grade the rumor at a low C at this point.
