SS Sedan 411 Please.

What year/s were the SS sedan??
N/A, super, turbo??
Did the sedans only come in a manual??

I ask 'cause I'm looking for 1 but can't seem to find a right answer. Some ads say SS but looks like an LT. I read they only came in a manual but some ads read auto trans. Some ads even read turbo. I just don't know what the sedans came in. Even wiki wasn't too clear. Thanks.

2009 is the only year for the lnf (turbo) sedan which would have a manual only, it never got a supercharged engine from the factory in a sedan and any other ss sedan would be the 2.4l N/A which could be had in auto as well

I was pretty sure that there was a 2008 and 2009 Cobalt SS/TC Sedan, which only came in manual.

But yeah, the sedan was never supercharged from the factory, and the only other "SS" sedan was really the "Sport" model with the 2.4l N/A LE5 engine.

The easiest ways to tell if it's an SS/TC sedan are to look at the front bumper, check the engine bay for a turbo (duh), and see if it has the SS interior. Below are some photos of each:

Base Model Cobalt Front Bumper

Note the horizontal lines where there would be fog lights.
On models with fog lights, the horizontal lines are still present.

Cobalt SS/TC Front Bumper

Note the smooth contouring around the fog lights & the lip underneath the bumper.

Cobalt SS/TC Engine Bay

Note the word "turbo" on the valve cover and air pipe across the top of the engine to channel air to the intercooler.

Cobalt SS/TC Interior


Note the 2 tone seats that brandish the "SS" logo, and the boost gauge mounted to the A-Pillar.
In addition, the gauges have a higher maximum speed & different font and color than the base models.

Good luck, they were limited production and are quite rare by Cobalt standards. Try to get one with LSD.

They never made a supercharged SS sedan, nor could you get the SS/TC sedan with an automatic.

They never made a 2010 Sedan SS, in 2009 they only made 704 TC/SS

Except for 10 RCMP interceptor cream in colour that were automatic. I sat in one, don't know if they were modified after or special ordered though. But the RCMP that had one was from the Truro precinct and told me they were special ordered. He couldn't tell me what transmission it had but it was definitely an auto. And did it ever go!

Huh, strange, I've never heard of any police ordering Cobalts.

Do you think it was maybe a 2.4l "SS" instead of a 2.0l boosted one? I'm pretty sure the biggest reason Chevy never made the SS/SC in automatic is because of the clearance issues with the supercharger pulley.

That would be a fleet order, so yeah, they're usually able to custom-order it however they want.

Well, they never really produced an SS/TC in an auto either, except that example Coby mentioned. You could get an auto in an HHR SS, though.
