It's been a long time since we welcomed a newcomer to the V-8-powered, rear-drive sedan category, and the 2014 Chevrolet SS picks up where the Pontiac G8 left off. The SS' arrival will finally give mainstays like the Chrysler 300 SRT (along with its Dodge Charger SRT sibling) some competition. For today's TOTD, we want to know which sedan you would choose.

In a recent comparison, we pit the 2014 Chevrolet SS against the 2014 Chrysler 300 SRT. Despite the gap in power and weight, the big sedans are relatively close in base price and overall length, with the SRT measuring roughly 5 inches longer than the SS. The SS produces a healthy 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque from its 6.2-liter LS3 V-8, while the SRT makes 470 hp and 470 lb-ft from a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8.

On the track, we liked the agile SS much better than the understeering SRT. Surprisingly, the SS was also the better highway driver, with editors noting that the SRT felt its size and delivered a disconnected driving experience. There's no denying the Chrysler 300 SRT's presence, however, with its bold exterior styling. And when it comes to doing "illegal and expensive, smoky acts in a closed environment," the SRT takes home the win.

So which large, V-8-powered, rear-drive sedan would you choose? Tell us in the comments below.
