It's been 17 years since Chevrolet has built a proper rear-wheel-drive sports sedan, and even that car ? the Impala SS ? was mostly a corporate accident. This year, that drought ends with the 2014 Chevrolet SS, a 415-hp Australian import designed to race on NASCAR tracks Sunday, sell on Monday and convince skeptical Americans to give Chevy another look.

Powered by a version of the LS3 6.2-liter V-8 in the current Corvette, the SS will spring to 60 mph in less than five seconds thanks to 415 lb.-ft. of torque turning a six-speed automatic transmission. Based on the chassis that underpins the Camaro, the SS boasts several high-performance attributes ? a 50/50 weight split front-to-rear, electronic suspension controls shared with the Camaro and Corvette and Bridgestone high-performance tires also found on the Ferrari California. The result, according to Chevy execs, is a five-passenger sedan with a luxury-car interior that can pull 0.9 gs of cornering force.

While Chevy executives wouldn't discuss pricing for the SS yet, it won't come cheap.

Probably $40-50k range. Looks interesting, guess its the commodore counterpart in the US. IMO Chevy (GM in general) has the worst interiors ever, but the only Chevy car I have hopes for is the Corvette.

Design contest of the day, how boring can we make a muscle car look.

Looks nice but probably way out of most people's price range.

It's based off a family sedan that sells to the masses. So no, it's not going to be a 2 door bulging sports car.

Here's some better pictures but..
