Chevrolet's cross-town rivals offer the most direct competition.
The Dodge Charger in SRT 392 and Hellcat forms easily best the SS on paper, but neither offers the ride quality or driving dynamics of the SS.
The Ford Taurus SHO is a completely different kind of car.
It's big, comfortable, and drives better than you might expect, but doesn't have the Chevy's V-8 chops.
The V-8-equipped Infiniti Q70 is another performance competitor; it's a bit more of a luxury car, with beautiful, plush cabin appointments, but has sport-sedan moves.
Still, mind us for finding it difficult to believe Chevy could field a sedan just two-grand shy of a Jaguar XF--albeit a base four-cylinder model.
