Wish you had something in your driveway with a little more … power? Well, now’s your chance.

The new 2014 SS is fun to drive, powerful, roomy, and costs around $45,000. Airplane not included. (Photo: Tom Jensen)

The most surprising thing about the all-new 2014 Chevrolet SS isn’t any particular facet or feature of the car itself. Rather, it’s that General Motors built the car at all.

The Australian-built SS is the production version of the car that Chevrolet races in NASCAR. It’s also the first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan Chevrolet has sold in the United States since 1996.
