Price of the Chevy SS is lower than it's competitors in the non-luxury rear wheel drive performance sedan domestic market.

  • 2014 SS Sports Sedan Price: $43,475
  • 2014 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Price: $49,250
  • 2014 Dodge Charger SRT8 Price: $46,250

this still won't make much of a difference when it comes to buying either car. anyone willing to spend $44k on a car probably won't mind going up to $50k if need be. If I wasn't impressed with the SS (need to test drive it, if that will ever happen) then maybe i'll get a SRT8

Used CTS-V, 2013+ Audi S6, and new 2015 C63 are all worth the stretch.
If my budget wouldn't allow, I'd find clean a C5 or C6.
2015 should look like this..........



which is amazing and will have a rear end like the 2014-15 S-Class. Just off of looks alone the C-Class gets my vote

Mercedes-Benz has made leaps and bounds in the design department while BMW has regressed. They're still trying to undo everything Chris Bangle did.

BMW is still ranked first. We'll see if things change for Mercedes this year. They think they will take over. They seem to be putting a lot of hope in their CLA.

yeah, I agree, especially with the way the new 2, 3, and 4 series look. The current-soon-to-be-replaced C-Class though was 1000000x better looking than the 3-series that was recently replaced in my opinion.

The last good BMW was the V8 M5.
Especially for it's time.
But, even those cars are expensive to maintain and I wouldn't want one today.
BMW is overpriced, unreliable, and overweight $hit today.


The only reason I will probably buy a new AMG car is because the combination of a big V8, twin turbos, all wheel drive, and a automatic with multi=plate clutches makes the new E63 and C63 GAME CHANGERS.
V8 and BMW is going the way of the dodo. V8 will only exist in US, five years from now I bet.

2013 300 SRT Core is $44,995.

FYI, Challenger SRT Core is $39,995. 2 doors, I know, but I sort of like the price. Better than the stupid $48K ones I've looked at.

$40 is a great price but i think it's best if we keep to sedans here, cause if you want to talk 2 doors....we'll I can go on for days. E.x. used C6 instead of Challenger SRT ;)

I haven't been back to this site in a while since buying a Dodge Charger SRT8 7 months ago. From the price side, you can get a lot of deals on SRT8s, so I got mine for roughly the same price as I would have paid for a SS. Also, the regular SRT8 comes with everything you would need (heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, heated cup holders, NAV, etc).

For me, I needed a four door car 7 months ago, so I wasn't able to wait to compare it to the SS. I do think the interior of the SS looks nicer than the Charger. The seats in the Charger SRT8 are really nice though.

From a speed perspective, I think that the Charger SRT8 is faster stock for stock. You can also tune them now, but it doesn't seem like the aftermarket is there like it will be for the SS. You can get tune and exhaust easily, but not sure what else. For me, the Charger SRT8 is fast enough. I have seen some guys on the forums running right at 12.1 with a tune, CAI on the Charger SRT8.

I do generally prefer GM products though, so after I have the SRT8 for a while, I will probably get a SS if they ever put the new Vette engine into it.

Good to hear that you'll be back. I was a service advisor at a chrysler store about 2 years ago and I will NEVER buy a chrysler again. Enjoy that car why its under warranty and then run for the hills lol. I agree that they are great looking and have a monster under the hood but Chysler lost all of my respect after the way I watched them treat the people who buy their cars. They had TONS of problems with the 300s and chargers (and vans and eberything else) and when they did have problems, finding the root of the problem was like playing pin the tail on the Donkey.

Hope you have better luck, man.

I have heard about some misc problems with the Chargers but I guess I've been lucky so far. (4 months left on warranty.) No problems at all with my R/T. Although the heated drivers seat kept shutting off today.
I was hoping for an SS without most of the features that jack up the price. We'll see what the next MY brings.

The MBs have definitely progressed in looks but BMW are still better-performing vehicles overall, that's kind of why they can get away with blander looks.
I still prefer my SS :)
