Interestingly, Chevrolet sold 1529 SSs in the first three months of 2017 , with 1217 sold in March alone. Before the SS forever disappears not so silently into a cloud of tire smoke, we wanted one last fling to load up the memory bank, so we snagged a 2017 SS with a six-speed manual .

It’s a common phenomenon: Brand enthusiasts zero in on an overseas model and imagine that if it were appropriated for stateside consumption, it would not only upend the performance-per-dollar hierarchy, but also require dealerships to hire extra security to handle the teeming masses waving their checkbooks. “I’d be first in line!” they say. In this instance, the manufacturer is Chevrolet and the car is the Holden Commodore, but General Motors was planning to bring it stateside as the Chevrolet SS long before the keyboard tastemakers took notice.

800-hp Yenko 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Unveiled Ahead of Barret-Jackson Scottsdale Debut

  800-hp Yenko 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Unveiled Ahead of Barret-Jackson Scottsdale Debut HUNTINGON BEACH, California — Move over, Hellcat, there’s a new horsepower king in town. The 800-hp Yenko 2017 Chevrolet Corvette was unveiled earlier to a small group of media at an event held at the headquarters of Classic Industries, a Southern California-based purveyor of restoration and aftermarket parts for Chevrolet and Mopar muscle cars. BuiltBuilt by Tom's River, New Jersey-based Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE), which uses the famous Yenko name under license, this car starts life out as a conventional Corvette Grand Sport. SVE then increases the LT-1 V-8s displacement from 6.2 liters to 6.

In its performance, this SS fell right in line with the numbers posted by its stick-shifted 2015 predecessor. The zero-to-60-mph run took 4.5 seconds

Having previously experienced less-than-stellar results with the sadly misunderstood Pontiac GTO and later the Pontiac G8 sedan, two recent Australian-American V-8–powered products that failed to build much excitement at the cash register, GM knew to temper the plan with a dose of consumer reality. Sales turned out to be consistent if not earth shattering: GM sold 2479 units in 2014, 2895 in 2015, and 3013 in 2016. Ultimately, it was the company’s decision to shutter Holden production altogether, not weak sales, that sealed the SS’s fate. Ordering for the SS concluded at the end of February, with Chevrolet dealers now selling off any remaining stock. Interestingly, Chevy sold 1529 SSs in the first three months of 2017, with 1217 sold in March alone. Apparently, news of the car’s impending demise helped stoke some fires; that and a recent fire sale advertising 20 percent off.

The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is the ZL1 1LE outfitted for racing

  The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is the ZL1 1LE outfitted for racing It will compete in the Pirelli World Challenge and ContinentalChevrolet says the GT4.R is based on the production ZL1 1LE track-day special. In production guise, the ZL1 1LE is gunned by a 650-horsepower, supercharged LT4 engine coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox. But it's the improved aero along with the track-adjustable suspension that really shows off its racing chops. The hungry, aggressive front is festooned with air deflectors and dive planes to give the car more of the downforce it needs, and in stock form the rear wing affords it 300 pounds of downforce.

Last Caress

Before the SS forever disappears not so silently into a cloud of tire smoke, we wanted one last fling to load up the memory bank, so we snagged a 2017 SS with a six-speed manual. Little has changed in the car’s four-model-year run. Its centerpiece—the old-school, two-valve-per-cylinder pushrod LS3 V-8—still sends 415 ponies and 415 lb-ft of torque to the rear tires. While the SS launched in 2014 with a six-speed automatic transmission as the sole cog-swapper, the manual came onboard (as a no-cost option) in 2015, as did Chevy’s excellent Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension, Brembo brakes in the rear to match the existing fronts, 4G LTE connectivity, and five additional exterior colors. Although its fascia was mildly updated and new 19-inch wheels arrived in 2016, some fans still found the exterior appearance too bland. We kind of dig its clandestine exterior for its authority-avoiding disappear-into-the-flow-of-traffic properties.

Stick, Beaten: BMW Looks to an (Almost) Manual-Free Future

  Stick, Beaten: BMW Looks to an (Almost) Manual-Free Future The decline of the manual gearbox often feels like a drawn-out but doomed military campaign.“Across the world, virtually all of our 3-series [models] and above already have automatic transmissions,” Ian Robertson, BMW’s head of sales and marketing, told us when we sat down with him at the Geneva auto show. “China never had any manual transmissions; they went straight to auto. The U.S. is predominantly auto, and more and more of Europe is as well. We will certainly see fewer and fewer manual transmissions being offered.

One of the SS’s more interesting traits is its high level of standard equipment. In addition to the hardware above, the base price of $48,620 includes a dual-mode exhaust, a limited-slip differential (3.70:1 final drive in the manual versus the automatic’s 3.27:1 ratio), proximity entry, remote start, heated and ventilated power front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, a head-up display, forward-collision warning, a rearview camera, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and more. With the SS, you won’t spend hours hemming and hawing over the options sheet. On our test car, the only items adding to the bottom line were the $395 Orange Blast paint, which was bright enough to negate the whole disappear-into-the-flow-of-traffic theory, and a sunroof for $900. The sticker also calls out the $1000 gas-guzzler tax (it’s $1300 with the automatic transmission). All in, the total came to $49,915. If we had the chance to order our own, we’d go with basic black.

While the SS performs well in virtually any driving environment that involves pavement, it excels out on the fringes of civilization, following the undulating and meandering rural lanes that weave among the lakes and farms near our Ann Arbor office. It’s these types of roads that had staffers talking resurrected E39-generation BMW M5. Balance is a word that rarely applied to big Chevrolet sedans in previous decades, but the SS has it. Push the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A summer tires (245/40R-19 front, 275/35R-19 rear) too hard and you feel a hint of understeer, which can be remedied with a gentle stab of the accelerator (stability control is fully defeatable). Those familiar with the steering of the current Camaro will feel right at home with the electrically assisted setup in the SS—it’s direct and linear but a little devoid of feel and on-center weight. A few drivers complained about nonlinear clutch takeup, but most found it a mild inconvenience and easily trained their left leg accordingly.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel EPA-Rated 30/52 MPG With Manual

  2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel EPA-Rated 30/52 MPG With Manual The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel sedan has been EPA-rated 30/52/37 mpg (city/highway/combined) when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission. Based on those numbers, GM estimates the Cruze Diesel has a range of up to 702 miles on one tank. The Cruze Diesel is powered by a 1.6-liter turbodiesel I-4 that makes 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the six-speed manual, the diesel is also offered with a nine-speed automatic, which is rated at 31/47/37 mpg.

In its performance, this SS fell right in line with the numbers posted by its stick-shifted 2015 predecessor. The zero-to-60-mph run took 4.5 seconds, shaving a tenth off the time of our 2015 example. The quarter-mile was a dead heat, with the 2017 model matching the 13.0 seconds and 111-mph trap speed of the earlier car. Of what used to be referred to as the Big Three, only Chrysler offers V-8–powered, rear-drive sedans that play in the same league as the SS. The Dodge Charger R/T equipped with the 5.7-liter V-8 and an eight-speed automatic couldn’t match the SS, requiring 5.1 seconds to reach 60 mph and 13.6 seconds for the quarter-mile. Add a 6.4-liter Hemi to the equation, however, and the tables are turned: The Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack sprinted to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 12.4.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that the price to pay for enjoying that glorious, naturally aspirated, 6000-rpm soundtrack on a regular basis is an observed fuel economy of 14 mpg. That falls short of the EPA combined number of 17, but on the brighter side, the SS returned 23 mpg in our 75-mph, steady-state highway test.

Neither of the Mopars can match the SS’s sense of balance—yep, there’s that word again—or its general poise. Registering 0.96 g on the skidpad, the SS handily outgrips the Dodge boys (0.86 g for the R/T, 0.91 g for the R/T Scat Pack), but even more critical is that the Chevy goes about the task with more finesse. In addition, stopping from 70 mph required just 156 feet, right in line with previous model years. You don’t need to change much when you get it right the first time around.

Spied! 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Tests at the Nurburgring

  Spied! 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Tests at the Nurburgring Track-ready Corvette gets put through its pacesOur spy photographers have caught the upcoming 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 undergoing testing at the Nrburgring race track in Germany and it's looking more sinister than the already potent 650-hp Corvette Z06. Up front, the prototype features larger lower air intakes that also give it an angry, more menacing look compared to the standard Corvette Stingray and Z06 models. The front splitter appears to be more aggressive and extends further, similar to the one that comes as part of the Z07 package for the Z06 and Grand Sport variants.

But now that the SS’s days are numbered, the opinion farm is back to spreading manure: “It was too well equipped,” they say. “I totally would have been a player if Chevy had offered a stripper model without the infotainment and convenience features for around $30K.” Sure, you would’ve. For those whose actions speak louder than their words, however, the chance to act is quickly vanishing.
