Poll: 2014 Chevrolet SS vs. Dodge Charger vs. Chrysler 300

|

For sure, there are plenty of sporty flavored, rear-wheel drive sedans in the market, but the first two cars that come to mind as direct competitors to the new 2014 Chevrolet SS are without question, the 2013 Dodge Charger and the 2013 Chrysler 300.

General Motors won't be releasing prices for its bow-tie-badged Holden Commodore SS V until later this year, though, we anticipate to the SS to carry a similar price tag to its Chrysler Group challengers in the non-luxury, rear-wheel drive performance sedan category.

The question is, which models in the Charger and 300 lineups will the SS go up against?

Will it target the 370HP HEMI V8-powered Dodge Charger R/T that starts at $29,995 or the 470HP 6.4-liter HEMI V8 Dodge Charger SRT8 priced from $45,995, and similarly, the Chrysler 300C with the 363hp 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that starts at $35,190, or the 470hp 6.4-liter HEMI V8-powered SRT8 with an MSRP of $48,995?

Perhaps GM will position the SS, which features a 415hp 6.2-liter V8 linked to a 6-speed automatic only, somewhere in the middle, or it could be preparing a ZL1 model like the one we dreamed up last year, in which case, it could focus on the lower priced editions.

Whatever the case, it’s almost certain that the SS will be cross-shopped with one or both of the V8 versions of the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger, which brings us to today's poll: with what you've seen and heard about the SS so far, which one of the following V8 models would you be more inclined to buy?
