Here's Why the Chevy SS Was a Total Failure

The Chevrolet SS looked great on paper — but it was a total flop. Today I’m reviewing the Chevy SS to see why the Chevy SS was a failure, and whether the SS is worth a look.

    Poor Chevy SS. You didn't deserve this fate.

    Yes, besides not being AWD, the biggest drawback to sales was the name “SS”, it was too in your face. Back in the early 60s when Chevy started the SS moniker, it was a tasteful sporty trim line which was actually the best looking version of a given model. By the end of the 60s and for the next 20 years or so (80’s Monte “mullet” SS) the SS became more about decals, stripes and throaty engines, And when I say “decals”, I mean big, 6 inch tall SS stickers that created a gear-head stigma. Now when the husband buys one, it’s unavoidable calling it an “SS”.
    Instead of a wife being able to explain, “yeah, my husband bought a Malibu or Impala”, she’s forced to say “SS”. This is all way too much to justify atrocious gas mileage.

    Thought they were only for police duty in the US. Anyway, the design doesn't excite me. Make it look like the mid 60's SS and they would have flown off the shelves.

    Remember you had that discussion on MoreDoug about which cars will become collectors items in the future? I think this model, particularly the manual transmission, should be included on that list.

    is this guy for real? Regarding the SS logo. On a Holden there would be an instrument cluster where the SS is embroidered. Does he not think through what he says?

    Did not advertise the car and they should have had a 2 door hardtop version.

    I have the equivalent one of these in Australia. The engine cover, door sills and dashboard insignia are the same on our cars so GM was penny pinching.

    Went to buy one but MY dealer had jacked up the price.
    FYI – The skip shift is easily fixed.

    Wait – what's the Pontiac GTO and Mercury Capri? Can someone translate???
    I think the Mitsubishi Diamante was the Magna, wasn't it? We had one of those for a time.

    It failed because it doesnt look like a muscle car. That's all it takes. Got the bones of a muscle car but none of the looks. It's like the late model gto. That's why people didnt buy it, because it didnt look like the old gto. I think that it's a good looking car. But the Chevy ss doesnt look as good as the gto

    would it be possible to swap a SS engine in like a new gen Impala (2014-2020) ?

    Chevy calling the car the SS is like Dodge calling a car the RT or BMW calling a car the M. 😂

    It was a failure for only one reason, bad marketing. People still don't even know it exists

  • Tristan M. Hartman

    Even if they marketed this car well it would've failed. There's no way it would've kept up with Charger sales. The 2015+ Charger is way more versatile, in my opinion looks WAY better, and is faster with the 392 and hellcat trims. Plus the modern Charger has been a staple since 2006 so it's had time to dominate the market.

    I'm not hating on the SS, but I don't think it's nearly as good of a car as the comparable 392 SRT Charger which has an MSRP of about the exact same price tag of $50,000.

    I love my Holden Commodore 2014 VF V6 Sporstwagon. He is just amazing. His interior electronics belong on the Starship Enterprise…😂. Which was very overwhelming and a bit scary too. I still don't know what half of the gizmos do.
    For a single woman, he is perfect. The massive boot space represents many kinds of freedom. I started with a Nissan Pulsar hatch-back. The boot-space was, with seats down, over 6ft. I then switched to a Magna 626i sedan, for awhile, and will never make that mistake again. The sedan was a nuisance. You can't get ladders, bookcases, wall-units etc, in a sedan. Now I finally have my dream car… the sportswagon and nothing can stand in my way.
