Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Chevrolet's new SS is the first rear-wheel-drive sedan offered by Chevrolet in 17 years. The SS is a V-8-powered sports sedan related loosely to the current Chevrolet Camaro. With room for five occupants, the SS competes with the Dodge Charger SRT8, Chrysler 300C SRT8 and Ford Taurus SHO.
ExteriorThe SS' exterior doesn't take many cues from Chevrolet's other high-performance offerings like the Camaro or Corvette. It relies heavily on the Australian Holden VF Commodore — on which it's based — for its design, and it's not particularly daring despite its sports-sedan intentions. The SS has staggered wheels with wider rears compared to the front for a more aggressive look. Exterior features include:
Forged aluminum 19-inch wheels with summer tires
Aluminum hood and rear trunk lid
Standard high-intensity discharge headlights
Standard LED daytime running lights
InteriorThe SS comes fully equipped with numerous standard interior features. The interior uses high-quality materials and red contrasting stitching with the dark-colored interior that is expected of a performance sedan nowadays. Interior features include:
Standard leather seating
Standard blue ambient lighting
Eight-way adjustable front seats
Standard touch-screen multimedia system
Standard head-up display
Standard Bose nine-speaker stereo
Under the HoodThe heart of the SS is a 6.2-liter V-8 making an estimated 415 horsepower. The "LS3" engine is similar to what's in the 2013 Corvette and Camaro. The V-8 pairs with only a six-speed automatic transmission using paddle shifters on the steering wheel for manual shifting control. Chevrolet estimates the SS sedan will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in five seconds. Mechanical features include:
6.2-liter V-8, estimated 415-hp
Six-speed automatic transmission
Standard Brembo brakes
Electric power steering
Safety Safety features include:
Electronic stability system
Standard forward collision warning
Standard lane departure warning
Standard blind spot warning
Standard backup camera with rear cross-traffic alert
