Pros

Understated, classy styling; standard V8 performance; room for five; impressive standard tech features


Model Highlights

The Chevrolet SS is unique in the GM lineup. A rear-wheel-drive sports sedan isn't found elsewhere without upgrading to something in the more up-market Cadillacs. But unlike the Cadillac CTS, the SS gets a powerful V8 engine, standard leather seating, 19-inch wheels, HID headlamps and an integrated navigation with an 8-inch touchscreen display.

Standard features on the Chevrolet SS include a 6.2L V8 engine. It makes 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic with TAPshift manual override, while a 6-speed manual is available. Push-button start, a limited-slip differential, sport suspension with Magnetic Ride Control and 4-wheel Brembo disc brakes are standard.

The headlamps are HID with automatic dimming, and the wipers are rain-sensing. Navigation comes included with the audio system and is operated through a large 8-inch touchscreen display. SiriusXM satellite radio, a USB port, Bluetooth and nine Bose speakers also come with the audio system. Included with the new OnStar 4G LTE system is Wi-Fi hotspot capability.

Leather-trimmed seats are standard. Those seats are heated and ventilated and power-adjustable. An easy-to read heads-up display projects vehicle speed, audio system information, compass and navigation prompts onto the inside of the windshield. Dual-zone climate control and keyless access are also standard.

Safety features include park assist, Blind Zone Alert, Cross-Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. Air bags include dual-stage front, side-impact, knee and curtain side-impact.


Value Writeup

The rear-wheel-drive Chevrolet SS aims for luxury sport sedans from European manufacturers like BMW and Mercedes. In pursuit of this goal, the SS features understated handsome looks, a standard 415-hp V8 engine, impressive chassis dynamics and a classy leather-covered interior.

Chrysler's 300 SRT8 is rear-wheel drive for similar money, but doesn't come with standard leather seats, navigation, heads-up display or HID headlamps. BMW's 550i offers a powerful V8 in a brilliant rear-wheel drive chassis, but it starts at $19,000 more than the SS.

Bottom line: The Chevrolet SS brings impressive performance and an outstanding standard feature list for less money than the competition.


Model News

The Chevrolet SS gets several notable changes for the 2016 model year. The front fascia has received a mild redesign, now incorporating LED fog lamps and a pair of subtle hood vents to aid with cooling. Navigation now comes standard on the SS, while a new set of 19-inch wheels and a dual-mode exhaust round out the changes for this year.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Chevrolet Caprice Police Pursuit vehicles manufactured May 14, 2013 through June 14, 2016, and Chevrolet SS vehicles manufactured May 15, 2013 through April 27, 2016. The driver's seat belt tensioner cable may be repeatedly bent over the seat side shield as the driver enters and exits the vehicle causing the cable to fatigue and separate.

Consequence
If the tensioner cable separates, the driver may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tensioner cable assembly, replacing any cable that is damaged. For vehicles that do not require a tensioner assembly replacement, a cable guide will be installed. All vehicles will receive new seat trim with a redesigned opening for the cable routing. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on November 3, 2016. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 31340.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015-2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, 3500 HD, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra 2500 HD and 3500 HD, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, Cadillac Escalade and Cadillac Escalade ESV vehicles and 2014-2017 Chevrolet Corvette, Silverado 1500, Trax, Caprice Police Pursuit Vehicle, GMC Sierra 1500, Buick Encore, and 2014-2016 Buick Lacrosse, Chevrolet Spark EV and SS vehicles. In the affected vehicles, certain driving conditions may cause the air bag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) software to activate a diagnostic test. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash.

Consequence
A failure of the front air bags or seat belt pretensioners to deploy in the event of a crash necessitating deployment increases the risk of injury to the driver and front passenger.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the SDM software. Vehicles that have had a previous air bag deployment will have the SDM replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on October 13, 2016. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 16007.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
