North American Chevrolet fans have Holden (GM’s Australian subsidiary) to thank for some of the company’s best modern rear-wheel drive performance models, including the 2004-2006 Pontiac GTO and 2008-2018 G8 GXP. The Chevrolet SS of 2014-2017, however, was one of the finest Americanized Holdens of all, offering amazing rear wheel-drive performance in a reasonably priced and versatile 4-door sedan. It was also be the last car of its kind, with production ending May 2017 after the closure of Holden’s production facility in Elizabeth, South Australia. While its run was indeed brief, the SS is a brilliant performer, benefiting from the lessons learned by Holden over nearly 50-years of racing success in Australian sedan and supercar circles against the best Ford and Chrysler could muster.
Powered by GM’s naturally aspirated LS3 6.2L V8 engine packing 415hp, the American-market Chevrolet SS is based on the contemporary Holden Commodore platform and available with a choice of 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmissions. Brembo brakes, Magnetic Ride Control, and comfortable yet purposeful interiors are other SS highlights. Performance is incredible and on par with BMW’s M5, Cadillac’s CTS-V, Audi’s RS7, Alfa Romeo’s Giulia Q, and on the slalom, the SS bested the 707hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. According to contemporary road test reports, the Chevrolet SS performance envelope includes Zero260, ahem, 0-60mph acceleration in just 4.7 seconds, the quarter mile in 13.2 seconds, and 60-0mph braking in 108 feet – all better than many of the hottest factory supercars ever sold to the public.
Featuring Silver Ice paint and a 6-speed automatic transmission, this rare 2014 Chevrolet SS comes from senior adult ownership and care with under 35k miles of use. Loaded with options and maintained in virtually impeccable condition with proper garage storage, it’s advertised as needing nothing, and even the tires are excellent – surprising, considering this car’s amazing performance potential!
Far too new for inclusion in collector car price guides, the SS is an infrequent find at online auctions, as well. Current online sale listings for them range from $38k-$50k, with higher asking prices obviously assigned to high-quality cars with lower mileage and good histories. Coming from solid ownership and care with under 35k miles, this 2017 Chevrolet SS is a strong find in today’s market and priced to sell within a reasonable timeframe, leading us to anticipate it will be well bought – and soon – at the seller’s ask.
