2014 Chevrolet SS - front three-quarter view

General Motors has announced the 2014 Chevrolet SS will not be available in Canada. The Globe and Mail reports the automaker has confirmed the high-performance sedan won't hit Canadian dealers, though GM hasn't offered up any reasoning as to why that is.

Buyers in the US of A, meanwhile, can look forward to getting their hands on the 415-horspower, rear-wheel drive SS by late summer. Something tells us it won't be long after that before Canadian officials start seeing individually imported 6.2-litre V8 four-doors in our neighbourhoods.

Fortunately, us Canadian buyers will still be able to take home the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. The C7 bowed at the Canadian International Auto Show last week, drawing sizable crowds and interest.

I don't know why they don't just build a similar vehicle in North America instead of importing it. It would be a fraction of the cost.

Pretty obvious why. It would not sell in Canada. Canadians buy smaller engines. Its made in Australia, higher import tariffs than the US. The car would require special outfitting to be Canada compliant. Add all these costs and you have a $40,000 car. It took the Pontiac G8 a couple years to get to Canada. It will sell out in the US anyway, no need to bother with the Canadian market.
