Lots of grunt from the 6.2-liter 426-hp V8; smooth-shifting solid-feeling 6-speed manual; look-at-me styling and exhaust note; smooth ride without rattles and squeaks, yet still competent when pushed in the corners.
Vague clutch feel, horrible rear visibility, tree-trunk-sized A-pillars, rear seats are really just ornamental.
The new SS is everything that’s come to be expected in a modern muscle car, with a docile feel around town and blistering performance on demand. But while its shape is arguably better executed than the taller-looking Dodge Challenger, the trade off is that it’s even harder to see out of, and that’s a deal breaker in an everyday driver.
