A plethora of power in a smart sedan

Chevrolet created the SS with the enthusiast in mind; it's even been touted as a four-door interpretation of the iconic Camaro, with the power to match. This zippy sedan is the kind of vehicle you want for true sports car agility but with the practicality of a proper back seat. Powered by a 415 hp 6.2L V8, the 2017 Chevrolet SS is paired with a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission. Incredibly capable and unassuming on the outside but with the heart of a race car, the SS holds up Chevrolet's muscle car legacy. Wherever you're headed in the SS, it may thrill you with its road-faring prowess.

The classic Corvette-inspired V8 engine at the epicenter of this four-door dynamo is built to move. It displaces 6.2 liters and pumps out 415 hp without breaking a sweat. When you consider that the 2017 SS has the same rear-wheel drive configuration as the SS that Chevy has raced in NASCAR, it makes sense that this car is not shy about its get-up-and-go. This is the only engine type available on the 2017 SS and it shouldn't disappoint.

Interior details

The 2017 Chevrolet SS welcomes up to five people. This is a large sedan with ample room in both rows; even if your passengers are six feet tall, they should find plenty of headroom (38.7 inches in the front and 37.5 in the back) to feel comfortable. Wide doors frame an easy to access door sill, which means this car is a great choice for passengers of various ages and mobility ranges. Contrast stitching and suede accents in the seats add to the feeling of luxury.

The 2017 Chevrolet SS offers seating for five, can fit up to two car seats in the second row, and has two full sets of LATCH connectors. Infant car seats, rear-facing convertible car seats, forward-facing convertible car seats, and booster car seats can be used in the SS. Thanks to its wide doors and roomy back seat, the 2017 Chevrolet SS makes securing car seats simple.


The 2017 Chevrolet SS is powered by a 415 hp 6.2L V8 producing 415 lb-ft of torque. It zips through the gears with a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual and comes in rear-wheel drive—like a proper sports sedan. A quad-tipped dual-mode exhaust is specially tuned to help give you a driving experience that feels intense. And the functional front hood vents are a clear indication of the muscle underneath.

With the automatic transmission, limited-slip rear differential and traction control, the 2017 SS is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 in 4.7 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). Most of the time, you don't need to power it up that quickly, but it's sure nice to know that you can. The EPA-estimated fuel economy is 16 mpg combined for the manual and 17 mpg combined for the automatic with the V8 engine.


According to EPA estimates, the 2017 Chevrolet SS's tailpipe greenhouse gas emissions are 520 grams per mile with a manual transmission and 544 grams per mile with an automatic transmission.
