New Chevrolet SS Performance sedan to debut at 2013 Daytona 500

The new Chevrolet SS Performance will reintroduce GM enthusiasts to the performance minded Chevy sedan and those hopeful buyers should mark their calendars for February 21st 2013 – as GM will use the 2013 Daytona 500 to unveil their newest performance road car along with the debut of the Chevrolet SS NASCAR race car.

The Chevrolet SS Performance was made official for the NASCAR Sprint Cup (click here for more on the new NASCAR program) in mid-May with debut of the race car set for the 2013 Daytona 500 but according to Australian publication The Age, the road version of the Chevrolet SS will also debut in Daytona at the Great American Race. The Chevrolet SS is based on the new Holden VF Commodore – being built in Australia and imported to the US - so with the introduction of the new high performance Chevrolet sedan in the US on February 21st 2013, Holden will introduce their own version of the performance sedan wearing Commodore badges on their home soil.

Little is known about the Chevrolet SS performance sedan but we can fully expect that, like the Holden VF Commodore, it will be a rear wheel drive car powered by a V8 engine. Since the SS moniker has long been used by Chevrolet to indicate its highest performance vehicle, we would expect that the new performance sedan will be among the higher performance models in the Chevrolet lineup.
