Chevrolet to Give the SS a Supercharged Sendoff

2016 Chevrolet SS

The Chevrolet SS is a sleeper car if there ever was one as it has 415 ponies to play with but its four-door body lacks any indication that it’s packing this sort of heat. Today, a new report indicates that this ballsy family rig may get an even more powerful version as its production comes to an end in 2017.

This report, which is from GM Authority, claims that the SS will gain the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V-8 for its rumored final year of production. Should this end up being true, this could give the final run of SS models up to 580 horsepower to tinker around with. This would nestle the SS in a comfy spot right between the 485-horsepower Charger R/T Scat Pack and the insane 707-horsepower Hellcat model.

Complete details on the elimination of the SS remain unconfirmed for now, as GM still hasn’t even officially confirmed the model will die. But, with the model it’s based upon—the Holden Commodore—dying, there is minimal chance that the SS continues in its current format, if at all.

For now, this is simply a rumor that stems from rumblings within the plant that the SS is manufactured in, so we suggest holding off on putting a deposit on that supercharged SS, for now.

We’ll continue monitoring this developing situation and bring you more details as they become available. Stay tuned!
