TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet SS makes the right strides to appeal to enthusiasts, layering a manual transmission and three-mode suspension on top of an already impressive package. The 2015 Dodge Charger looks strikingly different, ditching the retro for sleek modernity, but its V-6 and V-8 engines and rear-wheel-drive chassis make it a family sedan with a muscle-car heartbeat.
