It's what enthusiasts have been asking for since last year.
A few months ago, there was a rumor going around claiming that Chevrolet was making some much-needed changes to the 2015 SS. Specifically, the big rear-wheel-drive sedan would supposedly receive a six-speed manual option. For 2014, the SS was only available with a six-speed automatic, much to the chagrin of many enthusiasts. But now it’s official. Not only is Chevrolet adding the row your own gears option, but the SS is also set to receive GM’s Magnetic Ride Control. In fact, it will be standard.
To remind everyone, this is a high-tech suspension also found in the Corvette Stingray that works by reading road conditions multiple times every second in order to provide the drivers with better all-around control, especially at higher speeds. The 2015 SS will keep its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that pumps out 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. The six-speed auto, for those who want it, also remains unchanged. Official pricing hasn’t been announced, but we doubt it’ll be much different than 2014.
