Chevrolet SSR for sale
Produced from 2003 to 2006, the short-lived Chevrolet SSR, or Super Sport Roadster, combines the looks of a retro convertible with the utility of a pickup truck. Featuring a two-seat cab, four-foot cargo bed with semi-permanent cover and up to 390 horsepower, this quirky vehicle made a splash as a concept vehicle but suffered from poor sales. Recently, the Chevrolet SSR has been gaining traction and value as a collectable, thanks to its unique looks and small production run.
First introduced as an auto-show concept car back in 2000, the Chevrolet SSR debuted at a time when retro design was in demand. The concept Chevy SSR housed a powerful Chevrolet Silverado 6.0-litre V8 engine, appealing to both car and truck enthusiasts. However, when the truck went into production in 2002, Chevrolet equipped it with a 300-horsepower 5.3-litre V8 and four-speed automatic transmission, diminishing both its speed and capability. For the final two model years, 2005 and 2006, Chevy increased engine power, installing a 390-horsepower V8 engine from the Chevrolet Corvette, and added an optional six-speed manual transmission.
Chevrolet SSR features and capability
Due to its short production run, all models of the Chevrolet SSR are fairly similar. You can expect a rear-wheel-drive two-door, two-seat roadster convertible with a retractable hardtop and pickup-truck-style cargo bed. Models from 2003 and 2004 are equipped with a 300-horsepower V8 engine and four-speed automatic transmission, while 2005 and 2006 models offer 390 horsepower and available six-speed manual transmission. While this car does feature some pickup truck utility, with its short cargo bed, maximum towing capacity of 2,500 lbs and payload of 1,300 lbs, the Chevrolet SSR may be better suited to personal use than as a work truck. Available comfort features include leather bucket seats, power windows and door locks, and cruise control.
