The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
With V-8 power, agile handling, and a spacious five-passenger interior, the 2017 Chevrolet SS is sedan equivalent of the Camaro coupe. With standard rear-wheel drive and several flavors of V-6 and V-8 power on offer, the 2017 Dodge Charger is a large family sedan with the heart of a proper muscle car. The 2017 Nissan Maxima is the wild child of the Nissan bunch. It looks the part, but don't be fooled: after first blush it acts more like a near-luxury cruiser.
