looks like chevy is getting back into the ss game for 2014
 
It looks to be a malibooty with a v8 engine rwd going to debut in 2014 it looks pretty cool, ala pontiac g8 dna.

It does look pretty good, imo. And it's got some good numbers to back it up.

I didnt see any number as to what engine it's running is it an ls3? erm n/m it is LOL not to suprising man they are using that 6.2 in everything now sheesh!

1slofofo 02-28-2013 10:23 PM

Yeah, 6.2 ltr. They estimate 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.

Not quite. The new Impala is (still) FWD,based on GM's modified Epsilon II platform. The SS Sedan is based on the Holden VF Commodore,using the Zeta platform which is shared with the Camaro.

Whats wrong w/ that? When they got it use it. Proven bulletproof motor.

I love the ls3 :) it's such a versatile engine

It was pacing the Daytona 500 and didn't look too bad.
