If first impressions are the last one, then this car would pass off as just another one in a very busy American sedan market. However, this 2018 Chevrolet SS Sedan is much more than just any other sedan. It looks deceivingly simple. However, that is not even half of the story. Inside, it hides a ferocious V8 and track-built tuning. Experts always question why Chevy chose such a casual outfit for this model. Some say so as not to scare off the more simplistic buyers. That said, a quick review to do justice to this model is more than worth it.
Speculations have come to the forefront that GM might close down shutters on this vehicle. However, recent rumors suggest otherwise. A few specs have surfaced of a possible upcoming 2018 model.
Is 2018 Chevrolet SS Sedan just another Sports Sedan?
Almost, to say the least. To tell the truth about the first looks of this 2018 Chevrolet SS sedan, it is not something that will beat, say, an Audi or a BMW. The 2018 Chevrolet SS front fascia sports quite many chrome accents and it is disarming. The front bumper broadly curves into the sides leaving gaps for two minuscule air intakes which sport chrome touch-ups underlining LEDs. However, that is not what will glue an onlooker.
Instead, the scowl or stubble like bush up right below the thin mesh grille with chrome bordering is the highlight of this front fascia. It may a look a bit too different for many, but it works a second-look. Coming to the grill, well, it is nothing fancy, and neither are the headlights. Chevy needs to do something about their front lamp design. However, the power-lines on the hood do work out quite nicely.
Viewing this 2018 Chevy SS sedan from the sides is a sight for sore eyes. A comparatively brave front wheel position immediately tones up the side profile. Minimal front wheel arches but a closer look will show that the body line starts right there, flowing right under the windows and finishing right above the rear lamps with some space to spare. The rear wheel arch is well pronounced, to say the least.
Coming to the rear end, both rear lights are large and have muscular designs. There’s an excellent spoiler add-in on the boot which too sports a nice little pump-up. To sum it up, there’s no doubt that this is a nice-looking 2018 Chevrolet SS leaving the headlamps and grille sections out. However, that is just it, repeating something from before, nothing fancy.
A Monster of a V8 with Race-Tuning!
There is nothing better for an American than red-zoning a big bad all natural V8. Moreover, this is just what this Chevrolet SS Sedan 2018 has. Chevy wanted to remain loyal to their creed and did not follow a rising trend of smaller engines with a turbocharger adding in.
Instead, they are simply merging pure old-school adrenaline with this new model. This natural V8 pumps out around 415 HP and a similar wad of torque. Power is simply instantaneous, and there’s just too much torque just about anywhere on the power band to reduce even the slightest hint of lag.
This is one of the most lung-busting engines around in the Chevy’s garage other than the obvious Corvette ones. They have turbochargers; all this engine has is direct fuel injection. However, the performance readings are simply off the charts. 0-60 comes in before the clock crosses 4.6 seconds and that is quite something for a below 50 grand car.
Combined fuel economy comes in at around 16 mpg. This 2018 Chevy SS Sedan will compel buyers to cruise on highways without burning a hole in their pockets. It is completely RWD and a fund drive at that too especially for those who go for the 6-speed manual tranny instead of the Auto one.
Brembo brakes, MacPherson struts, three drive modes, Magnetic Selective Ride Control (One of the world’s fastest ones too), Limited-Slip Differential – this 2018 Chevrolet SS is all perfect for a few roars now and then. Moreover, speaking of roars, the dual-exhaust system is has custom-engineering to ensure lovely engine notes.
