Screw The M5: There's Nothing Like An All-American V8 Muscle Sedan

It's the only one left of its kind.

In 2014, Chevrolet launched its reborn SS. When we say reborn, we mean it’s the reincarnated Pontiac G8. Down Under, the SS is sold as the Holden Commodore, but not for much longer. And yes, the rear-wheel-drive Zeta platform on which the Commodore/G8/SS rides on was developed in Australia. Now that Chevy offers the SS with a six-speed manual, as well as an upgraded suspension and that always wonderful 415-hp LS3 V8, could this also be considered the best high-performance sedan on the market since the E39 M5?

Yes and no. Without question the SS is an absolute animal and a bit of a sleeper, too. But here’s the thing: it has a so-so Chevy-quality interior. It’s not exactly luxury like the BMW, but damn, the SS is without question the best and perhaps only true muscle sedan on sale today. Even the guys at Motor Trend couldn’t stop gushing.
