Full Version: Chevrolet SSR
Dieselstation Car Forums > The Cool Wall > The Cool Wall > Seriously Uncool

The Chevrolet SSR (Super Sport Roadster) was a retractable hardtop convertible pickup truck manufactured by Chevrolet between 2003 and 2006.
The truck was based on the long-wheelbase Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT's platform, and featured "retro" styling and a steel retractable hardtop designed by ASC. The production model was based on the SuperSport Roadster concept car shown at the 2000 Detroit Auto Show. An early-production SSR was the pace car for the 2003 Indianapolis 500 auto race.
The 2003 and 2004 models used General Motors' Vortec 5300 engine, a 5.3 L 300 hp V8. Performance was not spectacular at 7.7 s to 60 mph (97 km/h) with a 15.9 s/86.4 mph quarter mile run. The 2005 SSR used the 390 hp (291 kW) LS2 V8 also found in the C6 Corvette and Pontiac GTO, and also offered a manual transmission (the six-speed Tremec) for the first time, as an option. For the 2006 model year, the LS2 engine featured minor modifications that boosted its output to 395 hp (automatic transmission) and 400 hp (manual transmission), respectively.

Eh, I voted cool by accident. I do like the car (don't know why), but I don't think it's cool by any stretch of the imagination. It's the redneck's Mercedes SL...can someone change my vote to uncool.

Uncool. Normally I wouldn't say this in an insulting way, but goddamn this car is flamboyantly homosexual.
I'm not sure I see it as being gay but it's pretty damn ugly.

And the kinds of people that drive this car probably own a white hood and burn crosses every saturday night while listening to their Exalted Cyclops denounce 99% of the races in the world.

I make it a point to laugh at every person i see driving one of these things.
"This truck should've never went into production." Coming from a GM representative I spoke to at a conference back 2004 in Atlanta...
I actually like them and am not afraid to admit it.
