 2014 Chevrolet SS to have a 6.2-liter V8 - report
Chevrolet Caprice SS 08.5.2012

Could go into production next fall

The Chevrolet SS Performance Sedan is quickly becoming Detroit's worst keep secret as new details are starting to emerge about the upcoming model.

According to GM Inside News, the car will be unveiled early next year and could go into production in the fall of 2013. It will likely be based on the Holden Commodore SS-V and be imported in limited quantities.

Power will reportedly be provided by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine. If the Camaro SS is any indication, it could have an output of approximately 426 hp (318 kW / 432 PS) and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque.

I dont understand how this could be exciting new-fresh news. We had a Chev Lumina SS and SS UTE with the same engine and (and looks) for plus minus 5 to 10 years in South Africa. How is this a secret and something new?

Worst kept secret? It seems to me that all the rumors around the SS is very good and free advertising for Chevy.

OK I've seen the Holden Caprice when i was in Aussie a few years ago and not a whole lot has changed. I still find it looks ever so slightly like a Merc C Class at the front. Overall, it's a pretty nice vehicle, even if the interior could use a bit of sprucing up. And well the V8 is simply a gorgeous motor.

The noted mechanical's are excellent, but it could use better styling.

It would have to be the redesigned next-gen Caprice. The current Gulf-spec model has been on sale without change since MY 2007. More info at Chevrolet Arabia site: http://sa-en.chevroletarabia.com/vehicle...
