For Sale: 2005 Chevrolet SSR in Hilton, New York

Vehicle Description

It's a SSR Convertible Retro Truck by Chevrolet. LS V8 6.0L of Awesome! Very Cool with all the Goodies available. Cruise Top Down in Style Ever since its debut for 2003, the Chevrolet SSR with its retractable hardtop has been turning heads as the ultimate boulevard cruiser pickup truck. For 2005, SSR gets to snap some necks with a potent new 6.0L LS2 V-8 engine and available six-speed manual transmission straight out of the legendary Corvette. Flexing potent new muscle to match its stunning looks, SSR is powered by the newest version of Chevy's legendary small-block V-8. Ratings are 390 horsepower (291 kw) at 5400 rpm, while torque is 405 lb.-ft (549 Nm) at 4400 rpm. This massive power dose is harnessed through Corvette's Hydra-Matic 4L65-E four-speed automatic transmission or an optional Tremec M10 six-speed manual gearbox. Engineering advances in catalyst materials made possible catalytic converters that are more effective and less restrictive for the LS2's exhaust. The new converters are mounted closer to the exhaust manifold for quicker 'lightoff' and reduced cold-start emissions. SSR's exhaust has been retuned to maintain its throaty sound. In addition to its new powertrain, SSR has numerous other enhancements for 2005, all designed to make this outrageous retractable-top roadster the thrill ride of the year. �pgrades include: • A retuned steering system for a more precise on-center feel and reduced low-speed effort Striking looks, stunning innovation While SSR's dramatic exterior shape may recall the full-fendered forms of the late '40s and early '50s, this innovative roadster is anything but retro when it comes to incorporating leading-edge technology and creative design solutions. One of SSR's most distinguishing features is its cleverly engineered power-retractable hardtop, which provides an open-air driving experience without sacrificing cargo space. Incorporating a 'top stack' design, SSR's retractable hardtop is the first ever applied on a pickup. It is the only system of its kind where the roof panels move independently, stacking vertically behind the passenger compartment - a design that ensures quick operation with minimal stowage requirements. A single button on the console transforms SSR from an enclosed hardtop to a convertible in less than 30 seconds, neatly tucking the roof panels rearward between the passenger compartment and cargo bed. This unique vertical storage design system enables SSR to maintain the utility and convenience of a pickup - even with the top down. Distinctive interior SSR's interior design is based on Chevrolet's twin cockpit approach, with a horizontal cross-car bar and body-colored accents that pull exterior design cues inside. The satin chrome aluminum look used on elements of SSR's exterior continues on the interior door trim and instrument panel bezels. The cleanly styled instrument panel contains gauges with bold graphics and a simple three-dial design for all climate controls. Modern technology meets traditional methods SSR's flared front fenders and quarter panels are formed using a blend of modern technology and some traditional methods used to produce the original 1947-1953 Advanced Design Chevy lineup of pickup trucks, which formed the inspiration for this unique modern-day muscle truck. The stamping process, for example, uses a unique method called 'inverted toggle draw,' which combines the original toggle draw process and the more recent stretch draw concept. The use of new Grade 5 deep-draw quality steel enables these shapes to be formed without splitting. �nderneath its sleek exterior, SSR incorporates a body-on-frame construction, which is an upper steel unibody mounted on a boxed frame. Fully hydroformed steel side rails provide the frame with strength and stiffness, relatively low weight and precision fits. Eight cross members - as opposed to only four or six in similar frame designs - boost structural strength while contributing to a smooth ride, mor
