Saw one at the international auto show. Didn't even know is was an SS unit I got close enough to see the Brembos. I think the exterior styling went down 5 points. However the interior styling and creature comforts went up 5 points. The fact that you can't get it in a manual....down another 5 points.
5 years of innovation from GM and its the same speed as the GXP. Heck my GT with bolt ons went faster and looked 10 times better. I would have like to see some other engine and trans options. Word on the street if GM sells 3000 units a year they will "consider" other engine and trans options. However I have yet to see one on the road...which leads me to believe it will never happen.
Funny thing is if you go to the dealer and get one "fully loaded" it means you got a full size spare and a sun roof. I wouldn't be surprised if the values of the SS fall as quickly as the other malibus and impalas.
