    AW: Chevy SS Manual Trans Option Coming For MY15

    Autoweek Magazine

    02/17/2014 - Page 13



    Chevrolet's hard at work on the new for '14 SS sedan's next evolution; it's expected sooner rather than later. Price and details aren't known, but big upgrades for the next LS3-powered SS are set.

    Look for a manual transmission and GM's Magnetic Ride Control suspension. We hear the manual SS arrives this summer as a 2015, with a $2,000-$3,000 premium over today's automatic-only $44,470 sticker.

    This (if true), should make a few people here very happy.

    It would make me happy. However, the GM rep I spoke to at the Chicago show said it wasn't happening. We'll see.

    A "$2,000-$3,000 premium" over the automatic? SHEESH!! How can GM reconcile this when the stick is cheaper than the auto in the Camaro & Vette?

    May as well set it up for failure so they can claim nobody wants a stick in a sports sedan.

    With a $2000 to $3000 premium. Generally, a manual is cheaper than an automatic. Or is this the general price increase for the next model year? To include whatever other upgrades to justify the increase?

    If that included the LT-1, I'd order today!

    The manual in my Saab sedan was a 'no charge' option...over the automatic.

    The same process can be found at BMW and Buick. You want a manual in low demand vehicles...you pay the price.

    No, it won't. There'll be SOMETHING that gets 'em riled up.

    Riled up? Nah. Just disappointed.

    Offering a manual is better, but it still represents the same drivetrain you could get 6 years ago in a G8. The G8 also looks better.

    I already have a G8. It's paid for. Guess I'm keeping it.

    a 4 door Camaro,
    or a 4 door GTO

    I agree the G8 looked better. I'd keep it too, if I were you.

    The SS suffers from the Holden Design Studios latest facination with baroque, needlesly over-wrought front bumper facias.

    Read the first sentence of the last part. It appears that the increased price may contain the MRC as well.

    This announcement coming just days after I sent a really pointful letter to General Motors about how this car is built 2 feet away from the same exact Holden with the manual trans, yet is offered in auto-only. LOL.

    Well, I now know what my next car will be.
