Chevrolet has announced pricing on the highly anticipated SS sedan ahead of its on-sale date in late 2013. The single trim level (a departure for Chevy) starts at $44,470. That price is mildly misleading, though, as Chevy’s announcement indicated that the 6.2-liter, V-8-powered sedan will be subject to a Federal gas guzzler tax. The exact cost this adds hasn’t been determined yet.
Picking out your SS won’t be a particularly arduous task. The only two options are a $900 sunroof and a $500 full-size spare tire. So, before taxes and other fees a loaded SS will cost just $45,875, which seems pretty reasonable for a 415-horsepower muscle sedan.
In fact, it sits between the $46,250 starting price of the 475-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT8 and the $39,900, 365-horsepower Ford Taurus SHO. The SS trumps those cars with a few standard items, like standard automatic park assist and a head-up display, but the differences largely seem like a wash. So, which hot American sedan would you opt for?
