Before we even saw the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS, Mark Reuss, GM’s president in North America, had our attention when he referred to the car as a “four-door Corvette.” And just like the ‘Vette, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny to park one of Chevy’s new halo performance sedans in your driveway. When it goes on sale in the fourth quarter of this year, the new SS will have a starting price of $44,470 (*including $995 for destination), which is only about $5,000 less than the current C6 Corvette and around $7,500 less than the all-new Corvette Stingray.

Now, for this price, the SS will bring its 415-horsepower, 3,975-pound self to the party delivering performance that is expected to allow the sedan to hit 60 miles per hour in “about five seconds.” As for equipment, the 2014 SS will come packaged with just a single, fully loaded trim level that includes a head-up display, headed and cooled front seats, Chevrolet MyLink and a Bose audio system. Aside from a $900 sunroof and $500 spare tire package, the only choice you’ll have to make when buying an SS is the color. Scroll down for the official press release, and then let us know what you think of the SS’ pricing in the poll below.
