2017 Chevrolet SS to gain supercharged LSA V8 from HSV?

The Chevrolet SS will bow out of production next when Holden, which builds the Commodore and Caprice RWD sedans, closes its Australian factory.

For 2017, rumor has it that the Chevrolet SS version of the Holden Commodore that’s sold in the US will ditch the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LS3 V8 in favor of a supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8.

That engine is currently in use in various forms in the Holden Special Vehicles range, which is based on the Holden Commodore and Caprice.

If the rumor turns out to be true, the 2017 Chevrolet SS could have around 580hp (433kW), a big jump from the current Chevrolet SS which has 415hp (309kW).
