TOTD: Is the 2014 Chevrolet SS a Modern Impala SS Replacement?

The 2014 Chevrolet SS sparked debates among enthusiasts about whether it served as a modern Impala SS replacement.  

While sharing some similarities, they are distinct models with different target audiences.

The 2014 SS, based on the Holden Commodore, offered a powerful V8 engine, rear-wheel drive, and performance-oriented features,

appealing to enthusiasts seeking a sporty and dynamic driving experience.

On the other hand, the Impala SS of the past emphasized a blend of comfort and performance,

catering to families and individuals looking for a more refined and spacious sedan.

Despite the 2014 SS possessing a performance-oriented DNA like the Impala SS of yesteryears,

it didn't fully embody the same spirit and practicality, leaving the question open to interpretation among fans and experts.
