Video: Consumer Reports Reviews the 2014 Chevrolet SS

Simply put, the SS is Chevrolet’s treat to the U.S. because they’re not going to bring an HSV GTS or Vauxhall VXR8 GTS to the states (anytime soon, at least).

The man reviewing the SS in the video is Mike Quincy, and he seems to love the car. He even went as far as calling the SS a “four-door Corvette.” We haven’t tested one ourselves, so we can’t really knock that statement. Overall, the car looks poised and ready for battle, and watching it take turns is awesome – how often do you see that big of a car taking a corner with very little body roll? It’s very impressive, considering that the car doesn’t even come with the electro-magnetic ride control.

Quincy does state that he hopes the rumors of Chevrolet offering a manual transmission come true, but then again, who doesn’t? After the G8 GXP having a 6-speed manual transmission, we feel that it’s only right for Chevrolet to make it an option for the SS in the very near future.

One thing that we like about the SS that Quincy happily praises in the video is the interior. He says the front seats could use a little bit better bolstering, but overall, the cabin is furnished really nicely. The leather and suede with sporty red stitching that covers the whole interior seemed to have won Quincy over, but we think GM has more up its sleeve with this car – they can’t just leave us hanging with a fully-loaded SS option forever!

GM is definitely onto something good – a sporty, LS3-powered, full size sedan definitely makes sense for those who want power, style, and handling and can’t justify purchasing an impractical two-seater or two-plus-two. We like it, but with more options, the car would be that much more enticing. Check out the full review from Consumer Reports here.
