Behind that grille resides the same 6.2L LS3 V8 that powered the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette. Chevrolet has yet to lock down the SS’ official performance figures, but says the LS3 should be good for 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.
That power is sent to the SS’ rear-wheels via a six-speed transmission with a final drive ratio of 3.27. No manual transmission will be offered, but the SS does come standard with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Chevrolet says the SS will be capable of accelerating from 0-60 in about 5 seconds.
I like fast cars with room for four. While I’m not a fan of that front end, I do think that this is a good first step.
