History About Chevrolet's SSR Model:
Beginning as a concept show car in 2000, the Chevrolet design team created a Super Sport Roadster to highlight a performance inspired pickup for the Detroit Auto Show. Both spectators and GM executives provided a positive response to the hardtop retractable roadster, but Chevrolet held off production until late 2003 offering it as a 2004 production vehicle. Initially fitted with a 5.3L Vortec V8, it wasn't long before the horsepower hungry buyers convinced the GM brass that the long-lived Chevrolet Super Sport namesake deserved a more appropriate power plant. So, in came the Corvette LS2 6.0L all aluminum V8 in 2005! This new heartbeat was only mildly detuned to 390bhp and mated to 4-speed overdrive automatic, or a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission. To handle the power, the chassis was fitted with an independent front suspension, 5-link rear suspension, front & rear sway bars, tuned shock absorbers, staggered wheels measuring 255/45R19 up front & 295/40R20 at the rear, and a 3.73 limited-slip differential. Sales improved with this novel truck to Chevy enthusiasts, but only 24,112 units found garages during their short 3-year run. Today, they continue to receive easy head-turning appeal with performance that will surprise any driver once behind the wheel!
