2015 Chevrolet SS Overview

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Chevrolet SS

2015 Chevrolet SS Gas Mileage: Cons
2015 My mention of a $1,300 gas guzzler tax foreshadowed this "why not." If you want a fuel-efficient car, you probably don't want a big, V8-powered sedan. But even compared to the Dodge Charger R/T the SS is a guzzler. This is partly because the very small number sold doesn't justify an upgrade to GM's latest engine and transmission technology, which includes variable valve timing, cylinder deactivation, and eight-speed automatic transmissions. These technologies enable the Charger R/T to earn EPA ratings of 16 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, while the SS can only manage 14/21 with a six-speed automatic or 15/21 with a six-speed manual (which skips from first to fourth under light throttle). In my real-world driving, the trip computer usually reported an average around 16 or 17 in the suburbs (20 if I drove with a very light foot) and MAYBE 24 on the highway. The trip computer in the Dodge reported averages that were usually higher by a couple MPG, but keep its engine in V4 mode (i.e. no lights to stop for) and the average can reach 30. full 2015 Chevrolet SS review
