2017 Chevy Chevelle – resurrecting soon

By

Even young boys known what a Chevrolet Camaro is, but the 1970 Chevelle, a larger muscle car from Chevrolet, is practically unknown to the youth. You can see this car in the Fast and Furious 4 movie and many games in the NFS series, but only a very lucky few have seen the Chevrolet Chevelle SS 1970 in real life.

2017 Chevy Chevelle resurrection

The Chevy Chevelle was one of the most powerful and therefore the fastest cars of the Golden era of muscle cars. It may not be as famous as the Mustang or Camaro, but today it’s perceived with a sense of dignity, because the Chevelle and 1971 Buick Riviera on the avenues of our cities seem to be aliens from those distant times when gasoline was cheaper than tap water and a liter difference in engine displacement was considered negligible.

2017 Chevy Chevelle SS redesign

It is immediately necessary to say that the abbreviation SS, which can be found on the Chevy Chevelle and Camaro, has nothing to do with German criminals. These two letters stand for Super Sport and say that here is the most powerful modification of the 2017 Chevy Chevelle with a V8 engine capacity of 7.5 L. The 2017 Chevy Chevelle is a bigger car than the Camaro, or Ford Mustang and so its competitors are the Dodge Charger, Buick Skylark and Pontiac GTO.

Despite the frame body, huge engine and a wheelbase of 900mm, the curb weight of the SS modifications is only 1,482 kg. The 2017 Chevy Chevelle model can be recognized by a specific grille and a more “square” front of the car, and the SS LS-6 version is distinguished by a special inlet on the hood that is opened the moment the driver puts his foot on the gas, causing the engine to receive an additional intake of air.

2017 Chevy Chevelle equipment

The regular SS is equipped with a heated rear window, multimedia player and a sound system involving two rear speakers. In addition the angle of the 2017 Chevy Chevelle steering wheel can be telescopically adjusted, a feature not provided in most other American cars.

Interestingly, on cars with manual transmission up front there are not two seats but a bench with the MT lever located on the transmission tunnel, but cars with automatic transmission are fitted with two separate seats. In the photo you can see how effective the AT lever looks.

The speedometer is graduated up to 120 miles per hour, but of course the car with its powerful motor will easily overcome this mark.

2017 Chevy Chevelle specifications

The 2017 Chevy Chevelle 454 was fitted with the first V8, the volume of which as mentioned above is 7.5 L. The power of this engine is 360HP, but the power version of the SS LS-6 is equipped with a motor of the same volume, but with a compression ratio increased to 11.25:1, reaching 450HP. The torque of 501 ft lb is impressive, astonishing for a turbo, and for a naturally aspirated engine something unthinkable. With this engine the driver of the 2017 Chevy Chevelle can achieve 60 mph in just 6.1 sec, and to cover a quarter of a mile this car will need 13.7 sec.

    Your syntax is foreign. Nobody in 1970 referred engine displacement in liters, much less litres. GM, by the way, until 1970 had a policy to keep the engine in mid-sized cars less than 400 ci. That 62.2 ci would make a difference. If you wanted a 427, you had to go with the Impala, Caprice or Corvette. The 455, ( all manufactured by their respective divisions) Pontiac Catalina or Grand Prix, Buick Electra, Rivera or Wildcat, Olds 88 or Tornado.

    Chevelle?…Yeh right.

    • Eric Spears

      Not really it’s fake.

  • matt b

    very disappointed that they are using this concept. The first concept honored the heritage and merged the new and old together. Maybe should take notes from the designer of the challenger. I was going to for sure buy the first one I could get my hands on with the 1st concept.

  • nick

    They should have kept the outside of it mostly the same as the 1970s version just with the new electronic update on the inside

    • Eric Spears

      It’s fake.

      • Danny Downs

        It in fact is NOT fake. It’s a real car, being manufactured by GM. This car does exist. This is not a guess, rather an absolute certainty. Sorry

  • Silver Bullet

    Doesnt look like my Chevelle..lol.
    Little known back several years ago one of their sleeper sedans could be ordered with an LT1.GAWD.It has all kinds of controls to keep the front wheels from hopping off the car.I had a limited edition El Dorado. very special. All black everything, destroked aluminum 454. That was back in ’82. Ive never been able to find another like it. You could not accelerate from a standing start WOT or the front end would start jumping all around.

    • Eric Spears

      Don’t worry it’s fake.

  • Bob

    When are they going to redo the Nova?

    • Eric Spears

      They aren’t.

    • unksly

      No time soon !

  • Eric Spears

    This is garbage. All of this is made up crap. Quit posting shit like this.

    • Danny Downs

      I’m confused. This is a web site called “cars in trend” which in fact is about “cars in trend” which, amazingly enough has a article about the 2017 chevelle SS, which again, shockingly enough, just happens to be a car that’s “trending”. So, why would you be upset that they did a article about a brand new car with a brand new design, based on a old school hot rod that was loved by many people which is clearly a car that’s “trending”.. How dare they. Moral of the story.. If you look at a website dedicated to the Canadian red berry fern, your gonna likely see info pertaining to the Canadian Red berry fern.. Go figure.

    Pontiac GTO?! Is this “Back to the Future IV”?

  • Marine223

    Looks like a Chevaro!

  • unksly

    PHONY ARTICLE………..General Motors will be the first to tell you of this ! It is a SATIRE…to get you to look at all of the Advertisement around the article !

  • As Fook

    What makes me positive that this is complete BS is the 0-60 in 6.1 secs. Seriously, 501 on the torque and it’s gonna take 6.1 seconds? That’s some slow beef.

  • Matt M

    looks feminine, if they kept the 70s retro design it would have been real, but nobody is gonna want that crap. Looks like suped up prius

  • John

    It doesn’t look like a chevelle. They should call it something else. They need to let me design a new Chevelle it would be something my generation would buy

  • Sly Peterson

    Looks like all of the rest of their cars. Will somebody from Dodge please call them and explain how this is suppose to work.
