Today we learned that there appears to be a V8 rear-drive Chevy SS representing the Australian government in New York, and that kicks ass on multiple levels.
I’m a big fan of re-badging cars to something weird or unexpected or unfamiliar. It helps keep the population on their toes, exercises their curiosity glands and their brains. It’s like putting cat treats in puzzling boxes for your cat, only instead of cat treats it’s cars, and instead of cats it’s gearheads. Same…
Actor Dax Shepard is a friend of Jalopnik who likes to make fun movies that feature cool cars and bikes. Because I live the #dadlife, I finally got around to watching one of Shepard’s more recent films, CHiPs. Co-staring along with Shepard is a Chevy SS. If you saw the film, did you catch the swap when the SS meets…
Despite our best efforts, Chris did not take the opportunity to buy a three-pedal Chevrolet SS when he had the chance. While a big sale on the muscle sedan is currently happening pretty much all the manual cars are gone. What should he buy instead?
The Chevrolet SS! You all know what it is, a four-door V8 muscle sedan with an available manual transmission from the Land Down Under that sadly will never be made again. Well, if you missed out on the last time to get a deal, don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
The Chevrolet SS was never a best seller. It was barely a seller at all. But it had the deep, niche, Australian roots that could make any car enthusiast smile to see it in NASCAR’s top level. The SS’ production and racing death at the end of 2017 will be a sad time fo... wait, hold up, that Camaro ZL1 is its…
Take a look at yourself in the mirror. You have bad opinions and you only buy massive heaps of dumb shit. You don’t deserve anything good. “But I deserve nice things, I’m a nice person!” No. You’re terrible. You all never bought a Chevrolet SS, and now they’re gone with no replacement. Chevy finally got the thing…
Hello, I’m Karen Roselli, Mike Roselli’s mom. I daily drive a 2016 Chevrolet SS with magnetic ride and a manual transmission, which means I’m automatically cooler than 85 percent of Jalopnik’s staff. Nice to meet all of you.
If you are going car shopping this President’s weekend and have a hankering for a V8-powered muscle sedan, this will apparently be the last month your local dealer will be able to order you a Chevrolet SS before time runs out.
The Chevrolet SS was always an odd choice for Chevy’s entry in the top division of NASCAR, seeing as nobody—seriously, almost nobody—in the U.S. bought the thing. But it was a nice enthusiast car to have in NASCAR, racing alongside the vanilla Fusions and Camrys of the world. Sadly, this will be its last year.
With today’s news that the Chevrolet SS is laying down its final set of elevenses into the sunset after this year, we felt it appropriate to celebrate the true life and times of the Chevrolet SS—in tire smoke.
AutoGuide’s Craig Cole is as far from being Chris Harris’ Detroit-based cousin as its humanly possible, but he still explains perfectly why you should get a Chevrolet SS if you have the means.

We were burned before. The Pontiac Sport Truck was set to come to the US in 2009 only to have Pontiac die, killing the El Camino project as well. Now a local Australian newspaper claims ‘the pickup with an ego' is coming back. Oh please give us that sweet El Camino dope again.
As we've known for a while, Chevrolet is going to be bringing a rear-wheel drive sports sedan known as the SS to the US market for 2014.
"[T]he thrill of high performance driving is unmatched by anything that doesn't have rear-wheel drive, bags of torque and a nice transmission." That's why "Maximum" Bob Lutz thinks the Holden Commodore could bring the U.S. a "four-door Corvette."
