With its blacked out style, V8 power, and open-top cruising appeal,
this 2004 Chevrolet SSR is instantly attractive. So grab a seat in
the loaded interior and get ready for all eyes to be on you as you
drive one of the most distinct factory creations ever.
We love the SSR because Chevrolet proved that there were
enthusiasts in their ranks. They took one of the most iconic pickup
styles and gave it the full hot rod treatment. So the 1950s-style
curvy fenders get an extra sleek makeover for a design that's made
to be longer and lower than your grandpa's farm truck. This one
goes for an added touch of attitude with the deeply tinted windows
and factory alloys painted black with cool red bow tie centers. It
makes for a sinister package that allows features like the
retro-cool grille and well-integrated tail pipes to stand out
boldly in contrast The headlights, tail lights, and door handles
are all sleekly mounted to the body like a frenched custom pickup.
And speaking of sleekness, not only does the round roof give this a
smooth profile, but this hardtop also folds away into a storage
well with a flush-fitting cover. And when combined with the tonneau
over the rear bed, you have the look of a true custom roadster.
The black interior looks good against the black exterior. It makes
for a blackout style that's both intimidating and sophisticated.
Part of the refined attitude is because of the long list of
features. It includes leather upholstery, power windows, power
locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual front airbags, side airbags, ABS,
and an AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers by Bose. There's also
cold-blowing air conditioning and heated seats so you and your
passenger can stay comfortable when the top is down. And this one
loves to be a great cruiser. The driver's seat is power adjustable
and has memory settings. You have a sports steering wheel with
essential controls, a tilt column, and crisp gauges in sporty round
pods. The overall impression you'll get from this SSR is it's a
useful classic. It looks good out on the road, and nothing is too
fancy that will stop you from even daily driving it. Plus, the
truck bed has been given a rugged liner so you can carry rear
cargo. In fact, you notice the full-size spare - a handy feature
that's not standard on an SSR.
The key to the SSR's performance is a 5.3-liter V8. This
fuel-injected motor is related to GM's truck line, which means a
robust attitude. There are plenty of performance upgrades available
for those who want to take it to the extreme, but with 300 hp from
the factory, it already has that ideal setup for impressive power
in all conditions. And it feels like an all-around solid cruiser
with a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, four-wheel
power disc brakes, and a suspension that's the right mix of sporty
and highway-ready comfort.
The SSR was an instant classic because Chevrolet made a low-batch
specialty vehicle for us real fans. We will likely never see
anything else like it ever again, so grab it now while it's still
within reach. Call today!!!
