Will compete in 2013 NASCAR and arrive in showrooms as 2014 model
DETROIT – Chevrolet today announced the return of a V-8 powered, rear-wheel-drive
performance sedan to the U.S. lineup, the
Chevrolet SS. The SS will also be Chevrolet’s next NASCAR Sprint Cup racecar and will debut in its race configuration at the 2013 Daytona 500.
The limited production version of the Chevrolet SS will be a 2014 model and will arrive in dealer
showrooms in late 2013. It is the first time in 17 years that Chevrolet will offer a rear-wheel-drive
sedan for sale in the United States.
Chevrolet has a long history of using the SS (Super Sport) designation on high-performance
models of some of its most enduring nameplates. The SS designation first appeared in 1957 on
a Corvette prototype race car built under the guidance of Zora Arkus-Duntov with the plan to
enter it in the Le Mans 24-hour race.
The first production vehicle offered with an SS option was the 1961 Impala – 453 were built with
the performance upgrades which included a modified chassis and suspension, power brakes, a
steering column mounted tachometer and unique wheels and tires. The latest SS model in the
Chevrolet lineup is the fifth-generation Camaro, which debuted in 2010. The Chevrolet SS will be a derivative of the award-winning global rear-wheel-drive architecture that spawns performance vehicles like Chevrolet Camaro and Holden’s upcoming VF Commodore. The much anticipated Australian-built car will benefit from significant technology advances which enhance overall performance.
“As a passionate race fan and performance enthusiast, I am thrilled that Chevrolet will deliver a true rear-wheel-drive NASCAR racecar in the SS that is very closely linked to the performance sedan that will be available for sale,” said Mark Reuss, president of GM North America. “The Chevrolet SS is a great example of how GM is able to leverage its global product portfolio to deliver a unique performance experience that extends beyond the track. I am personally looking forward to driving it.”
Chevrolet was America’s best-selling performance car brand in 2011 with Camaro and Corvette
accounting for one out of every three sports cars sold in the United States. The addition of the
SS should strengthen Chevrolet’s position as a leading performance brand.
Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing
business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4 million cars and trucks a year.
Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design and high quality. More information on Chevrolet models can be found at www.chevrolet.com

Pump Up: Properly inflated tires improve gas mileage by up to 3.3%.
Unpack: An extra 100 pounds of cargo reduces fuel economy up to 2%. A loaded roof rack cuts fuel economy by up to 5%.
Slow Down: Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Every 5 mph over 60 mph is like adding an additional 29 cents per gallon for gas.
Avoid Idling: A car gets 0 mpg when the engine is idling. Idling can use a quarter to a half gallon of fuel per hour, depending on engine size and air conditioner use.
Chill Out: Speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can lower gas mileage by 33% on the highway and 5% in city driving.
Put It in Overdrive: Using an overdrive gear on the highway saves both fuel and engine wear.
Unclog: Replacing a severely plugged air filter on an older car with a carbureted engine improves fuel economy by up to 14%.

Top 5 Reasons to Use a Car Dealership for Your Service and Repair Needs.
1. Trained Techs:
Unlike most independent auto service facilities, dealership technicians are specifically trained
on specific vehicle makes and models, making them intimately familiar with how that car
2. Factory Parts:
While most aftermarket auto parts are high quality, to be absolutely certain you're getting the
best parts for your car, it makes sense to use the same parts the factory uses-- or the same
parts your dealership uses, in other words.
3. Recall/TSB Information:
While automakers are required to mail out information about vehicle recalls, dealership
generally have the latest information about the recall. Plus, dealerships are privy to
technical service bulletins (TSBs) from automakers, giving their technicians knowledge
about specific problems or issues a vehicle might be having.
4. Diagnostic and Repair Equipment:
Auto dealerships are required to have the latest and most up-to-date diagnostic and repair
equipment to service vehicles. It is rare to hear a dealership explain that they do not have the
parts or equipment to service even the newest vehicle models.
5. Customer Satisfaction:
Ever wonder why dealerships are so concerned about ensuring their service customers
"happiness" They have to be. Factories require dealerships to maintain minimum customer
service scores in order to be considered for special programs and, in some cases, to even
