The Chevrolet Cobalt SS is a line of three sport compact versions of the Chevrolet Cobalt built on the General Motors Delta platform at the Lordstown Assembly plant in Ohio, United States. It features two forced induction inline-four Ecotec engines, as well as a third naturally aspirated engine in 1SS trim, later called the Cobalt Sport.
The Cobalt SS was GM's first foray into the tuner market, launching with a 205 hp (153 kW; 208 PS) supercharged 2.0 L engine in late 2004 as a 2005 model, paired with the F35 manual of GM Europe. The following year, a naturally aspirated 1SS model equipped with GM's new 2.4 L, 171 hp (128 kW; 173 PS) engine was added. It had both automatic and manual transmission options. After a hiatus due to the discontinuation of the supercharged model, a more economical turbocharged 2.0 L engine producing 260 hp (194 kW; 264 PS) revived the manual-only, highest-trim Cobalt in the second quarter of 2008.
