I spotted the car at the Detroit auto show...I was very impressed and had no clue it had a 6.2L V8 inside. I thought it was a souped up lumina...looked great in person, especially the interior.

Looks pretty cool, Ive always liked the Holdens style, might have to take a look when they get into the showroom, not looking to buy but might turn out to be a pretty sweet ride.

No M6 option...total GM failure. :mad2::cookoo:

^^ Agreed! To have the "SS" brand with a auto and grocery getter looks is a flop in my eyes

I think it looks damn good, just like the G8 did. Wish it had a manual, maybe it eventually will...

The only way it would make onto my list is if it could be had with a manual...got to have something for those of us that want Corvette performance, but need family-hauling capabilities.

They are basically making a cheaper ctsv huh?

That's what the G8 was. But with more room...

The G8 had this beat by a long shot in the looks department from what I can tell in these pics...

But it wouldn't be the first car I thought was ugly in pics and actually looked good in person... But the lack of manual stinks

I hear ya but majority of the V2's sold are auto's so I can't blame them.

I like it. The no M6 option is not an issue for me as my next car is going to be an automatic (wife's requirement). Will keep my V1 for the times when rowing my own gears is needed.

I like it, curious to see what the price point will be. That said I don't understand how they are only getting 415 hp on an LS3? Must be a really mild CAM & Tune.

that car was not at the Detroit auto show. the car wasn't unveiled until last week.

The only thing close in Detroit was the cop version, which does not look the same and has a different drivetrain.

Either way, I think it's sharp. Nice mix of understated/aggressive. Where my situation would dictate a roomier car that's not as ostentatious as my V2, this SS would've been GREAT if it only had a manual...

by the 'cop version' do you mean the Caprice PPV?
i don't think there's a police version of the SS in the works

that would also make sense as to why it didn't look the same and had a different drivetrain

Yes, the PPV. They are very similar cars - they both ride on the Zeta platform.

i'm an auto journalist, so if the SS had been in Detroit, I would have been all over it.

No manaul trans sucks but as already posted most V2's are automatics anyway. At least its a RWD LS powered car that looks good.

always liked monaro (GTO) and commodore (G8). it might be a consideration if it has a manual. the G8 was in my shortlist prior to the V1.

What cars is that supposed to compete with? Looks a bit plain but if the price is right could be a nice daily. Don't really see it being a big success for GM but who knows.

That Buick isn't bad looking for a daily, not a huge fan of the grille though.

Love the plate on the Buick. I still have 2 Buick Gran Sports and have had 2 GNs in the past. Its great to see the power 6 logo again!

Just saw a chevrolet commerical featuring the SS, Stingray, and the volt. Gotta say it looked pretty good, much better than the pics I saw online. I might still be partial to the G8 and I'm not entirely sure why it wasn't simply transferred over to chevy from pontiac as I think it was a seller. Like others have said I could see a MT option coming out in its second year, perhaps with a lowered stance as well. Either way can't go wrong with another offering of a LS based vehicle.

Sharp looking ride....

The a$$ end has nice angles....has a nice clean BMW look to it (i.e. rear lights)....

Who knows...if it ain't a seller in the states...it may take off in Europe. Look what happened w/David Hasselhof....

It seems as though very few people want manuals these days... And car makers build cars for the masses. Oh well, our opinions here aren't gonna change anything. I would prefer a manual as well. I love banging through the gears.

The rear of that buick looks a lot like an ATS to me, especially around the top of the trunk lid ... and where's its 3rd brake light (CHMSL)?

It seems like the gn/gnx could greatly impact sales on the atsv. I'm very interested to see how they differentiate them.

That buick is ****ing stunning. It looks like a much more natural evolution of the V1 than the fugly-ass V2 ever did.

Well the article says it is built on the ATS platform and it will be rear wheel drive. I expect a lot of sales will be taken from the ford fusion and BMW 3 series and cars like that. Cadillacs are still "old people cars' to most people. People at my work are still shocked that my Cadillac has a 6 speed. Buick isn't much better but the one thing it does have going for it is... The old GNX was in a fast n furious movie a while back. Younger "car enthusiasts" have a raging hard on for that movie series.

I hope they are doing like they did with the G8, auto at first and a possibly hotter manual model later like the G8 GXP. Would be nice to see the manual rwd platform stay competitive. My manual trans in my car is my 'wife' deterrent device..
