The press overall loves the SS sedan even though the majority of the GMI community doesn't. The reviews have been spot on with what GM wanted to showcase with the model. With sales of the Commodore solid one could expect there to be a good future for both sedans. I'm okay with there not being a more affordable SS sedan right now and I don't expect there to be with this generation. I'm expecting to see the minor updates that are rumored with the suspension upgrades and a manual transmission. I'm hopping to see a LSA powered SS sedan in the next model year. This current generation model lives as long as the 5 generation Camaro sticks around. This is physical year 2014 so there are a few years before either the plant closes in Australia and or the generation 6 of the Camaro comes out. Both of these models will be locked step with each other I think. With that being said there are a couple of years left where GM can tinker around with the SS sedan and offer more special edition models. Maybe a track dedicated version and add a more aggressive appearance package. Much like what happened with the 06 GTO. I see GM using this generation of the SS sedan as a good setup for the alpha based sedan in that the bar would be set pretty high. GM just has to continue bringing it.
