;

OUTSIDE: Looks a little like the old G8, but slightly more sculpted with some LED daytime running lights. Wide, athletic stance with wheels pushed out. Slight "power bulge" in the aluminum hood. Big brakes and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels.

UNDER THE HOOD: Same 6.2-liter V-8 engine now used in the 2013 Corvette, with 415 horsepower. The SS can go from zero to 60 mph in under five seconds.

GAS MILEAGE: Not tested yet. Corvette with similar motor gets up to 26 mpg on highway.

PRICE: To be revealed closer to date it goes on sale, sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.

CHEERS: Brings tight handling and neck-snapping acceleration to people who need space to carry people and things.

JEERS: Probably won't get great gas mileage, especially in the city. But if you buy it, do you really care?
