Chevy unveils new 2014 SS, bearing a marked resemblance to on-track version

On Saturday at Daytona International Speedway, Chevrolet unveiled the 2014 model of the Chevrolet SS, the same day the SS race car makes its debut in the Sprint Unlimited race.

We'll save the marketing-speak for Chevy itself — this isn't a commercial, after all — but we'll tell you that it's the company's first V-8, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan since 1996. It's built on the same architecture as the Camaro, Caprice police patrol vehicle, and the Holden VF Commodore. It goes from 0 to 60 in about five seconds.

The 2013 Sprint Cup series will feature 17 Chevy drivers. Chevy cars will serve as the pace cars for the Daytona 500 (2014 Chevrolet SS), Nationwide race (2013 Camaro ZL1), and Camping World Truck Series (2014 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab).
