Holden wrapped up production of the final Chevrolet SS sedan this past May and the manufacturing arm itself shut down last month. Now, the final cars scattered across dealerships await their homes in the U.S. Except, buyers will be out of luck if they search for an SS equipped with a six-speed manual.
After a nationwide search on two platforms, there are no SS sedans for sale with a manual transmission. The final cars all feature a six-speed automatic transmission. In fact, there are only 185 new SS sedans left for sale in total, per Autotrader.
There is some good news for those who simply want to pick up one of the final Chevy SS sedans, however. Many dealers across the U.S. have reinstated the 20 percent off MSRP deal. Chevrolet itself rolled out the generous incentive twice during the SS’ lifetime, but it did not include the car in its most recent year-end clearance event. Still, plenty of SS sedans popped up with sale prices under $40,000. Recall, the SS stickers for just under $50,000.
If it’s a manual you seek, the used market will be the only way to snatch one up, though these cars still command close to $40,000 after a little bit of searching. The 2014 model year remains the least expensive way to purchase an SS, though it lacked magnetic ride control, the bi-modal exhaust and the manual transmission option altogether.
