Chevrolet to Roll out SS High Performance Sedan.2
While the performance of SS is expected to be high, there are also drawbacks seen by experts. The timing of the release may be wrong, given the soaring gas prices and fuel economy standards. The SS runs on V8, meaning it is not as fuel efficient as other vehicles. However, a GM spokesman countered that the latest model won’t bring down Chevrolet’s fuel economy, as it would be sold in a limited number only. Those car enthusiasts who are willing to shell out money for such a power car are the only ones targeted by the brand, the spokesman added. With its four-door type, the SS may also be perfect for driving and racing enthusiasts with family.
Chevy aficionados are expected to welcome the latest model the moment it hits the market. It is seen as a part of Chevrolet’s efforts to boost its rear-wheel-drive sedan division and make a turn in the market. GM said before that V8 cars have not much of a room in the US market due to strict government rules that drive car manufacturers to focus more on fuel economy.
