General Motors Canada has confirmed the 2014 Chevrolet SS will not be offered in "The Land of the Maple Leaf".

GM hasn't explained the reasoning behind this surprising decision but it's a certainty that its "rear-wheel-drive performance sedan" will not be offered in Canada. The United States will get the car starting with the fourth quarter of the year.

Under the bonnet is a 6.2-liter V8 engine rated at about 415 hp (309 kW) and 415 lb-ft (562 Nm) which should be enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in around 5 seconds. The engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission with TAPshift paddles. Other goodies include Brembo brakes, MacPherson strut front / multilink independent rear and sporty-optimized electronic power steering.
