The future of the large, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan is in question as GM shuts its Australia manufacturing operations. The 2017MY could very well be its last hurrah. Until then, rumors out of Australia point toward next year’s SS coming with a 6.2-liter LSA supercharged V-8 engine tuned approximately like earlier Camaro ZL1 and Cadillac CTS-V models. There’s no official word from Chevrolet about the future plans of the SS nameplate, but rumors point to the possibility of a replacement being built off of GM’s Alpha platform, which underpins the Camaro and Cadillac ATS.
