New Camaro SS to Make NY Debut

More muscle with mid-cycle refresh.

by on Mar.20, 2013

Chevy offers a modest tease of the 2014 Camaro SS.

Spend a bit of time scouring the web and you’ll find a surprising amount of information – and mis-information – about Chevrolet’s plans for the Camaro.

According to some reports from recent months, GM’s largest brand was going to skip the mid-cycle refresh in favor of an all-new pony car to come for 2015 – apparently timed to directly take on Ford’s 50th anniversary Mustang.

Geared Up for News!

While we’re still trying to get details on the gen-6 Camaro we can now confirm that there will, indeed, be a mid-cycle update of the current, fifth-generation model, with the debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro scheduled for a week from today at the New York Auto Show.

Beyond that, Chevy is holding tight on details and offering up just a splash of superlatives.

Chevy confirms it will add this new Australian-made, rear-drive sedan to its line-up as the SS in 2014.

Chevrolet’s performance portfolio is about to get a bit bigger.  General Motors’ largest brand has confirmed it will bring a version of the new Australian-made Holden VF Commodore to the States where it will be sold as the limited-edition Chevy SS.

The long-rumored rear-drive, V-8-powered SS will reach U.S. showrooms in 2014, Chevrolet officials confirm.  But potential buyers will get a good look at the new offering ahead of time, the new model debuting at the 2013 Daytona 500 in its role as the maker’s new NASCAR Sprint Cup racecar.

“As a passionate race fan and performance enthusiast, I am thrilled that Chevrolet will deliver a true rear-wheel-drive NASCAR racecar in the SS that is closely linked to the performance sedan that will be available for sale,” said Mark Reuss, president of GM North America.  “The Chevrolet SS is a great example of how GM is able to leverage its global product portfolio to deliver a unique performance experience that extends beyond the track. I am personally looking forward to driving it.”


Dodge Brings Back 392 Hemi in Challenger SRT8

New engine adds 65 horsepower, 90 ft.-lb. of torque

by on Nov.04, 2010

For 2011, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 features a bigger, more power engine, revised interior and exterior styling and an upgraded suspension.

The news coming out of Chrysler HQ in Auburn Hills is almost relentless these days. There are new engines, completely new SUVs and crossovers and revamped sedans.

Add to the mix a new Dodge Challenger SRT8 with a huge power infusion.

While Dodge has already announced that the base 250-horsepower V-6 will be replaced by a 305-horsepower version of the new Pentastar V-6, it hadn’t said anything about the Challenger’s other engines. Dodge still hasn’t announced numbers for the R/T, but it is expected to maintain its 5.7-liter Hemi, but it will likely make slightly more power.
