2017 Chevrolet SS Overview

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

For 2017, “SS” stands for swan song, as this will be the last year that the 2017 Chevrolet SS is available for purchase. With General Motors shutting down production of all Australian-specific vehicles, the Holden Commodore, which the Chevrolet SS is based upon, will become discontinued, thus spelling an end of Chevy’s sports sedan stateside.

Still, Chevrolet doesn’t intend for the SS to go out without some fanfare. That is why the 2017 Chevrolet SS is just as powerful as ever, with a few added financial bonuses to boot.

The SS was a sedan designed and built to perform. That’s why a majority of its exterior features, such as a rear spoiler and Brembo brakes, were installed to assist with that same spirit of performance.
