The 2014 SS

The big news in Chevrolet today is huge: GM’s 2015 Order Guide has been updated, and the new features listed for the 2015 Chevrolet SS are exactly what Chevy enthusiasts have been asking for. The marquee upgrade is the option of a manual transmission (although it appears the automatic will be standard), but the car will also include Magnetic Selective Ride Control, OnStar 4G LTE, and twice as many color options as the previous model.

The Magnetic Selective Ride Control brings to the new Chevrolet SS one of GM’s most forward-thinking feature adaptations. This suspension system uses magnetic shock absorbers that adjust based on the driving surface to imbue the car with a  ride smoother than ever before, one without any small moving parts that can wear out or need to be replaced.

The exact specs of the 6-speed manual transmission aren’t yet known. It is reasonable, though, to assume it will mirror the same option in similar GM sports cars, particularly the Australian Holden Commodore, on which the SS is modeled.

Although details about exterior upgrades have not been released (pictures only display a redesigned front license plate bracket), we can be sure that the car will have twice as many paint options as before. The snazzily named new colors in the SS palette are Regal Peacock Green, Some Like It Hot Red, Jungle Green Metallic, Perfect Blue, and Alchemy Purple. These come in addition to the already-available colors Silver Ice Metallic, Red Hot 2, Phantom Black Metallic, Heron White, and Mystic Green.
