Used models and features:

The manufacturing lifespan of Chevrolet SSR was only four years i.e. from 2003 to 2006. However during this time period, the company came up with several models which included:

·         Chevrolet SSR regular cab (2003): This regular cab launched in the year 2003 combines the looks of a retro car and the power of a sports car which makes it an ideal option for people who prefer both style and quality. A generous luggage space with a convertible top are some of the advantages this model.

·         Chevrolet SSR regular cab (2004): This model was launched in the year 2004 and is very similar to the previous model launched in 2003 with only few minor performance enhancements. One of the major drawbacks of this model is that there is a seat only for two passengers yet the car weighs a lot and is comparatively costly as well. The 300 hp engine was also looking forward for quick upgrade if the model wished to stay in the market. The later versions saw vital improvement in the engine power and capacity.

·         Chevrolet SSR regular cab (2005): Adding more power to the previous versions, this new version of SSR launched in the year 2005 contains 6L aluminum engine with power almost equal to 390 hp. Other minor change included in this new version was CD/MP3 stereo etc.

·         Chevrolet SSR regular cab (2006): The amount of performance enhancements made for the previous version definitely was not enough which was the major reason behind the launch of this model in 2006. Adding another horse power to its engine, the SSR regular cab 2006 version now contains an engine of almost 400 hp. All the other features remain the same except for a few changes in the appearance of the car. The new SSR of 2006 is now painted in two colors giving it a more sophisticated look.

Options and packages:

The prices for various models of Chevrolet SSR are:

·         2003 Chevrolet SSR regular cab: $15,084

·         2004 Chevrolet SSR regular cab: $15,775

·         2005 Chevrolet SSR regular cab: $17,440

·         2006 Chevrolet SSR regular cab: $18,130

Apparently the price for SSR lied in the range of $15,000 to $20,000 which was reasonable for the early models but soon the market was flooded with vehicles similar to SSR that were available at reduced rates.

Fuel economy:

Fuel economy is an important consideration when people look forward to buying a new vehicle. Almost all the models of Chevrolet SSR contains engine with fuel capacity varying from 14 mpg to 18 mpg i.e. the vehicle can run almost 14 to 18 miles in one gallon of gasoline. However this number might also change depending on several factors like whether you are driving in a city or on a highway.

Safety ratings and technology:

Safety is one of the most important aspects that people look for before buying a new vehicle. A vehicle which passes all the safety tests is launched into the market but the consumer must still know the features which can help him to protect himself in any adverse situation. When talking about Chevrolet SSR, the safety features include side air bags; traction control and anti lock brakes; however the stability control was one of the lacking features when it comes to the safety of the vehicle. Although the manufacturers claim that Chevrolet SSR is a highly safe vehicle, it was not tested by the IIHS so any kind of crash test results are still unavailable. The most appealing technologies inbuilt in the Chevrolet SSR are the automatic gear selector and the four spoke steering wheel.

Conclusion:

Offering the facilities of both a pickup truck and a sports car, the Chevrolet SSR is not too strong to make you feel like driving a pickup truck however the quality of ride offered by this vehicle is strong enough to make you feel that you are driving something much more than a car. The quick folding roof top is one of the most appealing features about this vehicle which makes it appropriate for a weekend ride or a vacation trip. Talking about the interior and the exterior style, the car looks comfortable from inside and the aluminum trim on the outside makes it win every race when judged on style parameters. The customization of the interiors was possible which gave the users a freedom to style their vehicle according to their likes. Some of the features that could be customized included chrome wheels, exterior trim, two tone color and chrome interiors. The safety ratings along with the fuel economy are altogether a win-win situation for the people who own this vehicle.
