The new 2014 Chevrolet SS is an outstanding performance sedan offering a 415 horsepower for a mere $44,475. However there was always one thing missing – a manual transmission.
The 2014 Chevrolet SS is powered by a LS3 Chevrolet V8 making 415-hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually using TAPshift paddles mounted on the steering wheel, 0 to 60 comes in 4.6 seconds. Of course, all this would be much more fun with a manual transmission allowing the driver to shift through the cogs on their own.
Well, General Motors has apparently heard enthusiasts complaints loud and clear. Starting with the 2015 model year, the Chevrolet SS will be made available with a 6-speed manual transmission with a 3.70 rear axle ratio. Another huge add-on for 2015 is the Magnetic Selective Ride Control system, which will be offered as standard equipment. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control system is currently available on the Camaro ZL1, Cadillac CTS Vsport, Cadillac Escalade and Corvette Stingray.
Another edition for 2015 will be OnStar with 4G LTE infotainment system, which provides a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot to connect to the internet at 4G LTE speeds.
No word on what the 2015 Chevrolet SS with a manual option will cost.
