2006 Chevrolet SSR 6.0L LS2 V8 Exhaust Tone & Walkaround

The Chevrolet SSR (Super Sport Roadster) is a retractable hardtop convertible pickup truck manufactured by Chevrolet between 2003 and 2006. The 2003 and 2004 models used General Motors' Vortec 5300 engine, a 5.3 L 300 hp V8. Performance was 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. In addition, GM badges were added to the vehicle. The SSR 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 vehicle's design was inspired by the late-1940s Chevrolet trucks, specifically the 1947–1955 Advance Design pickups. Sales The 2004 model sold below expectations with under 9,000 sales at US$42,000 each. Citing a 301-day supply of SSRs, General Motors in December of that year announced five weeks of layoffs at Lansing Craft Centre, the factory that made the SSR. On November 21, 2005, GM announced that it would close the Craft Centre in mid-2006, spelling the end for the SSR. The final SSR, a unique black-on-silver model (Highest VIN 1GCES14H06B124112), was built on March 17, 2006. Analysts estimate that 24,150 SSRs were produced in total. Of the total production, 24,112 were available for sale to the public.

The Chevrolet SSR - No Dealership Sells More SSRs than North Freeway Hyundai in Houston TX
This Car Has Style In 1999, the GM Design Center proposed a futuristic vehicle that celebrates the company's rich automotive history. This retractable, hardtop convertible takes cues from the company's successful truck line, and the inspiration for the Super Sports Roadster (SSR) design originates from the Chevy pickups of the early '50s. The SSR became the quintessential choice for street-rod truck enthusiasts. They are a strong visual statement as well as incredible V8 performance, two trademarks of Chevrolet. Designers didn't use traditional scale models or clay. Instead, they used a math-based, computer-driven process to explore design options. This meant increased speed, greater design accuracy and improved integration with the studio's engineering partners.
