The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Think of the 2016 Chevrolet SS as a four-door Camaro, with the power, handling, and interior space to live up to that promise. The 2016 Ford Taurus is the biggest sedan in its lineup, but it's short on rear-seat room, and it's beginning to feel its age.
