At the launch of the Chevrolet SS muscle sedan last year, many were sad to learn that the car missed out on many of the cool items offered on versions of the car sold overseas, particularly a manual transmission. According to a new report, the 2015 model year will see the SS offered with a conventional manual and some other upgrades.  

Motor Trend, citing an inside source, reports that the 2015 Chevy SS will be available with a six-speed manual and magnetic ride dampers. The latter should make the car, which already benefits from a really well calibrated ride, even better.

Unfortunately, there’s been no mention of any engine upgrades, which means the 2015 SS will likely continue to come with the current 2014 model’s 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 rated at 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. With the current six-speed auto, the SS will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds. A manual will likely see that time improved slightly.

The 2015 Chevy SS is expected to make an appearance at the 2014 Woodward Dream Cruise in mid-August before going on sale shortly after.
