The Chevrolet SSR (Super Sport Roadster) was 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 5.3L 300hp V8. Performance was 7.7seconds for 0–60mph (0–97km/h) with a 15.9s/86.4mph quarter mile run. The 2005 SSR used the 390hp (291kW) LS2 V8 also found in the C6 Corvette, Trailblazer SS, 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 395hp (automatic transmission) and 400hp (manual transmission), respectively. In addition, GM badges were added to the vehicle.
