What Is the 2015 Chevrolet SS?

The 2015 Chevrolet SS is a five-seat sport sedan with loose ties to the Chevrolet Camaro. It's available in one trim with rear-wheel drive. Competing vehicles include the Dodge Charger SRT.

What's New on the 2015 Chevrolet SS?

For 2015, the Chevrolet SS offers two transmissions: a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. You'll also get Brembo-brand rear brakes and GM's Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension system with three modes: Tour, Sport and Performance. Additionally, the OnStar emergency communications system gets 4G LTE internet connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot, and it includes a three-month/3-gigabyte data trial. 

How Does the 2015 Chevrolet SS Compare to Other Sport Sedans?

If you want a powerful V-8 in a car that echoes the Camaro or Corvette, the Chevrolet SS is a good choice. It does have some tough competition, though; the Dodge Charger SRT and Chrysler 300 SRT8 house stronger V-8 engines, and they look more intimidating on the road. The Ford Taurus SHO, on the other hand, isn't as powerful as the SS but has all-wheel drive. Compared with a luxury car like the Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec, the SS has a slightly weaker V-8 engine and fewer features, but it's lighter and handles better.

What Features in the 2015 Chevrolet SS Are Most Important?

Under the hood of the 2015 Chevrolet SS, you'll find a 415-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 engine that pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles. Rear-wheel drive, Brembo-brand brakes and a Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension are standard equipment. For greater control, you can opt for a six-speed manual transmission in place of the automatic.

Significant standard features include forged aluminum 19-inch wheels with summer tires, an aluminum hood and rear trunk lid, high-intensity-discharge headlights, LED daytime running lights, fog lights, heated side mirrors with an auto-dimming feature on the driver's side, a rear spoiler and rain-sensing wipers. You also get leather upholstery, power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, blue ambient lighting, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a touchscreen multimedia system with Bluetooth streaming audio and USB connectivity, Bose speakers, a navigation system, cruise control, push-button start and a self-parking system with automated steering. A power sunroof is optional.

As is required in all new cars from this year, front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard. The 2015 Chevrolet SS also comes with front-seat side-impact airbags, front knee airbags, side curtain airbags, forward collision warning, a head-up display, lane departure warning, a blind spot warning system, a backup camera with rear cross-traffic alert, and Chevy's subscription-based OnStar emergency communications system with automatic collision notification.

Should I Buy the 2015 Chevrolet SS?

With the exception of cramped rear legroom, cabin quality inside the 2015 Chevrolet SS is impressive; you get a lot of features for the money. For some sports car fans, the SS may look too generic, but it does offer strong brakes, a powerful engine and an amazing exhaust note. Power comes at a price, though: Fuel economy is low, especially in the city.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
