3. Chevrolet SS – MSRP from $43,475
Digging into its Holden model lineup from Down Under in Australia, GM has provided a real performance sedan for Chevrolet. The SS comes with rear-wheel drive and a 6.2-liter V8 engine that thunders out 415 horsepower. All of that power is channeled through a finely-tuned 6-speed transmission. If you’re afraid that the car will be all power and no control, you can relax. The sport-tuned suspension provides a surprisingly responsive ride, while the 14-inch rotors and 4-piston Brembo brake calipers serve up excellent and reliable stopping ability.
