    With this get hit with the Guzzler tax too? If so I would change my answer to $42K to $47K. On par with Dodge Charger SRT8

    THE SS IS NOT A DODGE CHARGER!!!!!!

    It will be better then a charger RT in every way (performance wise) and could possibly out perform the srt8 in certain ways.

    Both chargers offer many more features/creature comforts then the SS.

    The SS is not a charger. It is a different car that will not be mass produced. The smart price point would be 40k (+/-2k).

    I have no doubt that it will sell out at any price point under 45k. For such a low production vehicle I doubt anything under 35k will happen.

    GM will MSRP it between $40-45, but after GG tax and destination, it will probably run $45-50.

    What some hope it will cost, and what it will, will be two very different things.

    Re: What is a fair price for the Chevy SS?

    I really wish a 3.6 under $30K version was coming. I thought it was and I suspect the 5000 coming will be priced too high for my budget. Sad. Really wanted an SS but I bet these go for near $40K.

    I'm not seeing anything offered in the SS that is way above the Charger, though I'll wait until there are comparisons. So Chevy can't use" limited edition" to justify a higher price just because its from the land of Oz.
    I agree. Unfortunately, it's nothing more than a Chevy equivalent to a Loaded Charger R/T = $40k. IF they wedge an LSA under the hood, it'll be a step up from a 470hp (although the blown hemi is coming, no?) SRT, so then $50k. That's it. Sorry GM, you're sporting a car and chassis that are over 1/2 a decade old....

    Who cares about a name as long as the car does what I want it to do the name means nothing. What if they called it chevette would that make people happy?? L NO!!!

    Re: What is a fair price for the Chevy SS?

    These cars will be marked up so much it won't even be funny...whatever the MSRP will be, it will just be a starting point. I would expect most dealers would be marking these cars up $10K or more, especially if they'll only be getting one of them.
    In my garage:

    2006 Pontiac GTO (mine)
    2013 Honda Accord Sport (also mine)

    15,000 - 20,000 units per year at a cost of around $40k. I hope demand is greater than supply.

    But again, good sales would be what GM is expecting... They've obviously crunched the numbers and know how many for how much in order to keep this car in N/A for a profit.

    Wait wait. Wasn't the G8 GXP as fast or faster than the SRT8 with the older engine. Now the SRT8 has a few more ponies but with the same old granny at the same weight. The SS sedan has a new tranny with better programming and less weight than the G8 GXP I don't have any worries that it can match or top a new SRT8.

    Yes it will. Same engine and gearing as the G8 GXP and it had a $1700 GG tax. It will have the same.

    SRT8's are now running mid 12's (12.5) in the quarter and I believe trapping around 112-113 mph. G8 GXP was a 13 flat quarter car trapping around 108 mph. SRT8's stock for stock are going to beat the SS sedan in a quarter mile drag race.

    Re: What is a fair price for the Chevy SS?

    My views of this car would slack off if ti were under $40K. The GXP was $39995, and as an enthusiast no manual trans like the GXP HAD, is a big big ding. All the electronic nannies are a moot point for me, a Ford Focus parks itself, has a version of My Link in My Ford Touch and alot of cars have lane departure.

    One last plea, can we please damn chrome wheels to hell. This car would get many style points with a black, machined or shadow silver wheel. To me chrome wheels look gaudy and cheap.

    You will be disappointed then. In the low $40's this will sell I would guess 5 to 7 K a year. Maybe I will be surprised. On top of that it goes on sale in October, November and December of this year. Sales are going to be SLOOOOWWWWWWW for the first 6 months with the inevitable dealer gouging markups, winter sales timing and long boat ride over.

    My exact thoughts. Whatever tier most people think is a good range, it'll be one range higher.

    This is 35K-40K car no question. Having said that it will start in the low 40's. Factor in inflation and the extra features they saddled it with... No way it will start with a 3 in the price. I wonder given the different axle ratio if it will dodge the gas guzzler tax. So my bet 40-45K. I just hope it is closer to 40K.
