    Exclamation HSV testing supercharged V8... could Chevy SS performance mo

    Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Chevrolet, GM, Australia


    Chevrolet isn't hiding the fact that a new rear-wheel-drive performance sedan - called the SS and seen in full checkered-flag regalia above - is on its way to US shores, courtesy of GM's Australian division. Past its eventual existence, though, we've been kept in the dark. How much will the SS cost? Who, exactly, will it be marketed to? And, perhaps most importantly, what will power the 2014 Chevy SS?

    As we all know, General Motors has a cornucopia of engine choices at its disposal, from standard four-cylinder engines to turbocharged four- and six-cylinder units and, of course, the classic V8. Not surprisingly, it's the upper-end of the V8 spectrum we're most curious about. According to the Aussie scribes at GoAuto.com, the SS may be getting the same rockin' and rollin' supercharged mill that so ably (over)powers the Camaro ZL1. Yes, please.

    Backing up GoAuto's assertion are some engineering mules being tested by Holden that reportedly have the tell-tale whine of a supercharger underhood. Considering that both the SS and Camaro will be sharing the same basic Zeta underpinnings, the addition of the stupid-powerful V8 seems distinctly possible. Let's hope.HSV testing supercharged V8... could Chevy SS performance model get Camaro ZL1 power? originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 12 Oct 2012 11:31:00 EST.

    Wouldn't surprise me one bit if the engine was blown. Could be an LS-A or an LS-based motor with a Harrop supercharger as Harrop is Holden's first line of defense. I follow Holden, HRT and HSV not to mention Walkinshaw Performance and their forced-inducted creations are DEMONIC.

    well we already know that gm plans on selling the caprice that they are bringing over as a police vehicle to the civilian market. considering that the caprice is based on the statesman or commadore (can't recall which offhand) and that the pic above looks to be about the same size as the commodore (ie...pontiac g8)...i think it may be a safe bet that we will see this come in as the caprice ss. probably something along the lines of the g8 gxp except with a supercharged engine.

    I know a few years ago, there was a rumour the current FWD Impy was SUPPOSED to be Commodore-based and RWD. But that fell through as the new Impy is Holden-designed, but still FWD.
