It’s too not often we see the Chevrolet SS, a high-quality, fast-traveling, luxury car, in the news but it’s made headlines in the past few weeks. Although sales may be slow for the V8-powered sedan, that doesn’t mean Chevrolet will cut the car from the lineup. A successor, however, is not out of the question.
The Chevrolet SS’s sold 2,895 units in 2015, the best since the model’s introduction in 2013. With the planned closure of facilities in Australia, it was assumed the SS would get the axe.
Al Oppoenheiser, chief engineer of the Chevrolet Camaro, says otherwise. While he did confirm that the SS would be available in the 2017 model year, he also hinted at a possible successor. He couldn’t confirm it would happen but with a simple “maybe,” he didn’t deny it either.
The SS is the last model to ride on the Zeta platform. There’s no word on whether or not the Chevrolet SS replacement will boast another V8 engine but it seems the earliest we’ll see the model at all is the 2018 model year.
We here at Crossroads Chevrolet are on the edge of our seats to see what the 2017 model year has in store!
