Chevrolet Chevelle SS 2024 Engine, Concept, Specs – In 1957, engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov came up with the design for the Chevrolet Chevelle SS. The Chevelle SS is currently a mid-engine automobile, 63 years after it was first envisioned.
The so-called C8 iteration of the 2024 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Stingray, due in 2024, will include a mid-engine configuration to boost the performance of America’s sports vehicle to that of a supercar. Because of how well it drives and the options it offers, the 2024 Chevelle SS achieves a TCC Rating of 7.0 out of 10.
2024 Chevrolet Chevelle Redesign
Changing to a mid-engine layout offers a brand-new visual style. For the first time, the new SS Chevelle boasts an engine bay 16.5 inches longer than the previous model, allowing the engine to fit under the rear deck. The C7 and C6 Chevelle SS’s iconic visage, the low-set headlamps, the detachable roof panel that can be placed in the rear trunk, and the fighter-jet-inspired lines remain. However, new design cues like the enlarged front air intakes and enormous air ducts in front of the rear wheels suggest a mid-engine configuration.
Additionally, 2024 Chevrolet Chevelle incorporates its powertrain into the vehicle’s overall design as a whole. When seen from behind, Chevrolet claims to have gone to great lengths to make every fastener, tube, and wire seem as good as they could on a motorcycle. One engine and gearbox are offered for the Chevelle SS, marking the manual transmission’s end. The 6.2-liter aluminum-block LT2 V-8 powerplant is used. When equipped with the Z51 package, it produces 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque; otherwise, it has 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Direct injection, dry-sump lubrication, and cylinder deactivation are all included in the engine.
Under the current design, the Chevelle SS loses some of its hatchback practicality. There are 12.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the vehicle’s trunks, including front and back ones. While the C7 Chevelle SS’s two bins are 2.4 cubic feet less in volume, more giant goods won’t fit due to their smaller size. According to Chevrolet, two sets of golf clubs will work, but they’ll have to be Playskool-sized shorts. So far, only the Stingray variant of the Chevelle SS has been revealed by Chevrolet.
The Z51 package is available as an option for the 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trim levels. An 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, power-adjustable sport seats, leather, a 4G LTE hotspot, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, power tilt and telescope steering column, remote start, 19 and 20-inch alloy wheels, and power tilt and telescope steering column are all standard.

Direct injection, dry-sump lubrication, and cylinder deactivation are all included in the engine. The only available gearbox is an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters on the steering wheel. A low-ratio first gear is designed to take advantage of the V-8’s power, while close-ratio second through sixth ratios and tall seventh and eighth gears are designed to increase highway fuel efficiency. Like the outgoing model, the EPA estimates 15 mpg in the city, 27 on the highway, and 19 combined.
