The 2015 Chevrolet SS Manual is Chevy’s large sedan mass produced to be able to enter in NASCAR. The SS has doesn’t need an “SS” badge as it symbolizes the “SS” itself. Meant to be a sports sedan, it’s got the heart and soul of a muscle car with the agility of modern performance cars. Although in pedestrian form, it’s a bit too heavy for a canyon carver but it’s got the value and performance like no other car in its segment.
The 2015 Chevrolet SS Manual Aims on Taking on Other Performance Sedans
Unlike the modern evolution of muscle cars, the exterior of the 2015 Chevrolet SS Manual doesn’t reflect its muscle car roots. It’s got the body of a modern sedan complete with the functionality of one; no coupes here. To the untrained eye, the SS actually looks very stealthy as it looks like any other Chevrolet sedan like the Cruze and the like. While it is on the large sedan class, it’s more for a sporty driving and luxury is kept at an average which might sway buyers used to the luxury offered in this class. The SS however makes up for the lack of luxury with an engaging drive delighting all the senses. Under the hood is a classic pushrod V8 paired to a Godsend manual transmission (FINALLY!) powering the rear wheels.
On the inside of the 2015 SS Manual, the typical comfortable and luxurious cabin you find in this segment is replaced by a comfy yet sporty interior featuring sleek heavily bolstered front seats as well as the room for seating adults comfortably on long drives. The center console does have more chrome than one would ask for a sporty car but it’s okay nonetheless.
Driving the 2015 Chevrolet SS Manual is a fun experience; you get the power of a rear wheel drive muscle car paired with modern technology such as magnetic shocks, making it toss-able on the corners despite the weight it carries. The best part of the drive is that the SS comes with a manual on the top end trim which is a rarity nowadays. The manual brings back the extra feel you get when you have the capability to row through your own gears; that alone makes the SS worth getting. The Chevrolet SS represents the Super Sport that Chevy used to put on their performance trim vehicles. Now represented as its very own car, it is the embodiment of SS, be it Super Sport, or Sports Sedan.
