Man, what a stupid, ridiculous, ugly car. $50,000 for an LS powered convertible 'truck' that was never rated to tow anything substantial. It's also slow as heck for the drive train and price and even came in purple. Oof.
Yeah they were all that.....and hugely overweight at 4700 lbs.The 2005 SSR used the 390 hp (291 kW) LS2 V8 also found in the C6 Corvette, Trailblazer SS, and Pontiac GTO, and also offered a manual transmission option, the six-speed Tremec, for the first time. It was a beautiful fucking screamer.
For the 2006 model year, the LS2 engine featured minor modifications that boosted its output to 395 hp (automatic transmission) and 400 hp (manual), respectively. Performance improved dramatically with the LS2, the 6-speed manual version had an advertised 0-60 mph time of 5.29 seconds. In addition, GM badges were added to the vehicle.
Used one's today with the Corvette drivetrain are still selling for $25-30k...and worth every penny.
Since when did anyone buy a pickup truck for what it could haul? Most of the beds never see anything more imposing than a single load of mulch.
Yes that sounds familiar.
To each his own, I guess...Used one's today with the Corvette drivetrain are still selling for $25-30k...and worth every penny.
Literally every person I know on planet Earth that drives one.Since when did anyone buy a pickup truck for what it could haul?
Maybe on that SSR thing. My pickup sees much, much, much more than that.Most of the beds never see anything more imposing than a single load of mulch.
They're called them 'mall queens' or 'bro dozers'. The SSR being a perfect example.Maybe not typical, but I know half dozen people with pickups - all four-door monsters - and maybe two of them have ever had anything in the bed other than a bicycle or piece of furniture that could have fit in back of an SUV.
Trucks in the suburbs are "statements."
