Need for Speed: CarbonEdit

The Chevrolet Chevelle SS appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a Tier 1 Muscle. It is unlocked upon completing its Reward Card. It is selectable in Quick Race mode in blue or red.

The Chevrolet Chevelle SS has the best acceleration of all Tier 1 cars. However, it handles similarly to other muscle cars in the game. Braking is often required to enter a corner without hitting the wall.

Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit

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: UndercoverEdit

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: WorldEdit

On September 21st, 2011, the Chevrolet Chevelle SS was added to Need for Speed: World as a SpeedBoost only Tier 1 car. An in-game cash purchasable variant was added on December 20th, 2011.

Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as a 'D' and 'C' Class vehicle. The in-game cash variant was retired on September 18th, 2012.

The standard Chevelle SS has a 327 overall rating and was purchasable for Dollar icon450,000. The SpeedBoost version is a C Class vehicle with Amerikon Speedsystems Street Tuned parts. It has a 430 overall rating and costs SpeedBoost21,900.

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.


  • A red Chevelle SS can be played in a Gold event of the Challenge Series in Need for Speed: Carbon.
  • Players can select a grey pre-tuned Chevelle SS for Race Day Grip events in Need for Speed: ProStreet.
