The Chevrolet Chevelle SS appeared in Motor City Online.

Need for Speed: Carbon

The Chevelle SS appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 1 muscle class car.

It can be unlocked through gameplay, but can be unlocked early through purchasing a downloadable content pack; the Custom Car Bundle 2 pack.

It has the best acceleration of all tier 1 cars, however, it has very unresponsive handling and slack steering. Braking is often required to enter a corner without hitting the wall, as it is prone to oversteer.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The Chevrolet Chevelle SS appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 2 vehicle with a $33,000 price tag.

The Chevelle SS is one of the fastest classic muscle cars due to its quick acceleration. However, it often tends to slide in corners because of its high weight. The Chevelle SS is best utilised in Drag events.

Need for Speed: Undercover

The Chevrolet Chevelle SS appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 3 vehicle with a $150,000 price tag. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 9.5.

The Chevelle SS has the best acceleration within its class, although the 1969 Dodge Charger R/T comes close. With a top speed of 193 mph (311 km/h), it has a considerably lower top speed than most tier 3 cars.

Need for Speed: World

The Chevrolet Chevelle SS was released in Need for Speed: World on September 21, 2011 as a tier 1 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a D class vehicle.

The standard Chevelle SS has a 327 overall rating and was purchasable for Dollar icon.png450,000. The SpeedBoost version is a C class vehicle with Amerikon Speedsystems Street Tuned parts. It has a 430 overall rating and costs SpeedBoost1,900.

Unlike the 1969 Dodge Charger R/T and 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T, the Chevelle SS is a torquey vehicle with an above average nitrous boost. Its handling is sluggish in corners due to a high weight, but is still superior to both cars. Standard top speed is 135 mph (217 km/h).

The car is best used in Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape. In race events against other fast in-game cash purchasable vehicles, it also stacks up well. The Chevelle SS might require Race series performance parts or better as its nitrous strength and other performance aspects such as acceleration and handling can be vastly improved.

Stock: 327 (D class) Maximum: 560 (B class)
