DETROIT — The 2014 Chevrolet SS starts at $44,470, including a $995 destination charge, but excluding the gas-guzzler tax, said General Motors on Tuesday.

GM said the Chevrolet SS will be subject to the gas-guzzler tax and that pricing information will be updated when the charge is determined.

A $900 power sunroof and $500 full-size spare tire are the only options on the performance car.

GM said the Chevrolet SS will only be available in one trim level.

Standard equipment includes high-intensity-discharge headlights, automatic parking assist, Chevrolet MyLink with a navigation system, Bose audio system, a color head-up display, dual-zone automatic climate control, alloy pedal covers, heated and ventilated front seats, side blind zone alert and lane departure warning, rear-vision camera with rear park assist and keyless access with push-button start.

The Chevrolet SS is equipped with a 415-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Other details include standard Brembo front brakes and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels.

The rear-wheel-drive Chevrolet SS arguably has no true domestic competition. Its closest rivals may be the 2014 Ford Taurus SHO AWD, which is priced at $40,695, including a $795 destination charge, and the 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8. The base 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core model starts at $45,245, including a $995 destination charge.

Edmunds says: GM manages to keep the price of the Chevy SS under $50K, which ought to please its admirers.

    So what happened to keeping the Pontiac G8 idea (affordable performance sedan) alive? That car started well under $30,000. This is nowhere close. What a disappoint.

  • This an impressive car but the price is a little steep for middle class incomes. It's less powerful but a generously optioned, Hemi-powered Dodge Charger RT can be had for significantly less than $40,000.

    Gosh, I Wish this were offered with a manual gear box! NOt that I'd consider buying one based upon that criteria alone. Word has been out for a while that the next generation Mustang is coming in sedan form with IRS soon (next year?). I would imagine such a Stang to be in direct competition with this car except for the fact that I am SURE that such a Mustang will be offered with a third pedal. Very interested in test driving one of these..but can't say my expectations are high. Hope to be pleasantly surprised.

    I'm baffled by the claim in the article that the SS has no direct domestic competition, when the article immediately references the Chrysler 300 SRT8. The article doesn't mention the Charger, but that's absolutely a direct competitor too. Large, RWD, V8-powered, fairly well equipped sedans from mainstream nameplates - it doesn't get much more direct than that.

    another GM import? their past experience with the Holden imports is likely to show again.

    @rjett: Oh please. Sure you could get a V6 G8 for less than $30,000, but definitely not the GT, and as sure as hell not the GXP. The GXP, by the way, is what you would compare to the SS since they have the same engine (6.2L LS3) and both come in a single,

    This car is slow for the power it has, too expensive for what it is.
