The well known Chevy SS from Chevrolet Company is their flagship model when it comes to performance sedan segment. This performance version debuted back in 2013 and used the same platform as another phenomenal model – Holden Commodore VF. In the first three years of sales, this model had good results, even without some significant redesigns. The model for 2017 will be probably most redesigned compared to all redesigns in the previous three years, and that is because people from Chevrolet Company want even better results in the sale.
