Building on the performance-oriented updates made to the Chevrolet SS
last year, the 2016 model features several exterior enhancements that
reinforce its presence on the road.
A revised front fascia features new, vertical ducts at the outer
edges to direct airflow over the front wheel openings to improve
aerodynamic efficiency. The fascia also incorporates new LED signature
lighting, while new, functional hood vents and new-design 19-inch
cast-aluminum wheels contribute to a stronger appearance for the
rear-drive sports sedan.
What hasn’t changed is the SS’s unique blend of performance, comfort
and spaciousness. It features a 6.2L V-8 engine under the hood and turns
out an SAE-certified 415 horsepower (310 kW) and 415 lb-ft of torque (563 Nm), and offers a six-speed manual transmission or a paddle-shift
six-speed automatic transmission.
A new, dual-mode exhaust system for 2016 complements the V-8 engine
with quieter performance at low engine speeds and a more muscular engine
note at wide-open throttle.
