First Drive: Chevy SS


Chevy SS - This looks strangely familiar .As it should be. Is Australian fighter built sedan, which we know in the UK as the Vauxhall VXR8 , and the people Down Under know and love, as Holden VF Commodore . Now it is the U.S. export as a spiritual successor to that budget scorching four-door Chevy Impala SS .Wait, is not the Commodore as the Pontiac G8 in the U.S. known ?It was. But if Pontiac has Schnitzel GM brand family after the restructuring in 2010 , the G8 went with him.So it is exactly the same as the Vauxhall VXR8 , only Chevy SS badge on it?No, this is not the compressor , active damping and a choice of manual transmission. And many other details that need to visit two websites to check one by one .Can we call it a four-door Camaro ?Yes and no. Yes on the same Zeta - mounted Australian engineering platform as the Camaro and gear are no different. But there are some differences , such as wheelbase and some tools that make them significantly different.What is offered than other cars , no?Towards a single specification for the whole SS was sold in the USA - The only two options are a sunroof and a spare tire full size - a ton of space , V8 tight handling and performance at a price that is less generally than $ 10k European competitors.OK , then what is it like to drive?Neutral in a good way . The chassis , such as the drive train did not come otherwise than by the latest is well prepared to meet the driver and offer a high degree of control. The ride is well cushioned and quiet, the exact address. And you can make great burnt or roller skates to Will. There is a huge amount of space front and rear, a boat big enough to make a trailer and a redundant level of fit and finish that , like the rest of the car, including the design and style is nothing special , but very but oh well. It lacks only the last bit of excitement that really make it something special.Anything I should know?The SS is the model that GM used as the entry into NASCAR, so that you can see a lot of them fill the TV screen on most weekends in the United States. At the other end of the scale politeness is also the first to offer Chevy automatic parking assistant .Worth buying one?If you live in the U.S. and want a large , high-quality residential relocation anonymously with several passengers at high speed, the SS would be one of the best options.
