Chevrolet SS Overview

Consider the Chevrolet SS a stealth weapon. It's a serious performance car cloaked in a restrained exterior and boasting a spacious, comfortable cabin. But on a sports-car track the SS's ferocious speed, balletic handling, and fantastic brakes will keep pace with or surpass the performance of many high-end sports sedans. The rear-drive SS comes fully loaded and is powered by a burbling, 415-hp, 6.2-liter V8 from the last-generation Corvette. But it's also an executive express par excellence, with easy access, a sumptuous cockpit, and a hospitable rear seat. Controls are simple, and standard safety gear includes forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitors, and a back-up camera with cross-traffic alert. A firm but tolerable ride and a paltry 17 mpg fuel economy are modest drawbacks that go with the territory.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
