From the GM media kit.

“The all-new SS is engineered for performance enthusiasts who’ve been clamoring for a rear-wheel-drive sedan,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.

"The LS3 6.2L small-block V-8 powers the SS, is SAE certified at 415 horsepower (310 kW) and 415 lb-ft of torque (563 Nm), which helps it sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds. It is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually using TAPshift paddles mounted on the steering wheel."

It's been widely known for awhile. The long wheelbase version is basically the Caprice police car.

It's a sleeper, in the modern tradition started by the 90s Impala SS and continued through the GTO and G8. Big V8 power, understated sedan looks.

It's a face-lifted G8, but without the manual option. Still just an imported V8 Commodore. Sweet though.

Costs about twice as much as it should.

With a lower price and a manual transmission, I'd totally dig it. As is, it's not my cup of tea...particularly not considering that a Dodge Challenger RT offers smaller-yet-still-adult-friendly back seat AND a 6MT starting at about $30k...
