As is common with a new model, Chevy officials didn't reveal full specs on Friday night, such as whether the SS can beat the SRT8's 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds. The SRT remains the horsepower king, and comes with the largest tires standard, but also weighs more. The Taurus is the only one with all-wheel-drive, but looks a step off the pace with its 365-hp EcoBoost V-6. Maybe a little fresh competition will improve the new breed of four-door Motown sports cars.
