Will the 2016 Chevrolet SS be Receiving Extra Power?

Rumors suggest the automaker's new sedan may sport an upgraded engine.



    JACKSONVILLE, FL, July 23, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- After gaining several new features for 2015, including an adaptable suspension, Brembo rear brakes, 4G LTE data connection with Wi-Fi hotspot and the availability of a six-speed manual gearbox, (1) the Chevrolet SS sedan may upgrade to a more powerful, HSV-tuned engine for the 2016 model-year. (2)

The automaker's four-door vehicle currently ranks one out of 10 in Affordable Large Cars by U.S. News & World Report, and has been praised by automotive journalists for its athletic handling, responsive steering, controlled body motions when sweeping around turns and remarkable acceleration. (3)

The outgoing SS draws its power from a 6.2-liter (LS3) V-8 rated at 415 horsepower/pound-feet of torque and can be paired to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. (1) However, according to GM Authority, the vehicle's engine output may change for 2016. (2)

A camouflaged version of the next Chevrolet SS model was spotted on Holden's Lang Lang proving ground in Australia with the 2016 Commodore Series II, the last of which many believe will upgrade to an HSV-tuned version of the LS3 -- a change that may also apply to the SS, therefore generating 10 or more hp and raising the current rating to at least 425 horses. (2)

GM Authority also believes the sedan will benefit from a refreshed style, and news from Autoblog suggests that Chevrolet's four-door model may gain new dampers, a new suspension tune and the Camaro's track-focused 1LE package. Such a feature would require the vehicle to sport new tires that are of equal size all around. (4)
