Final Production Run - 6 Speed - SSR
By KenOfAZ on
Vehicle
2006 Chevrolet SSR 2dr Regular Cab Convertible SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
Review
This red hotrod turns heads. I am always getting compliments on it. The six speed manual shifts very smooth with 5th & 6th gear both overdrives. It takes a lot of revs to get this heavy truck off the line with the 3.73 axle ratio. It needs a lower first gear, or lower rear axle ratio. Gets about 20 MPG at freeway speeds in 6th gear. About 13 MPG in the city. The 400 HP LS2 6 liter engine has great power, but has a lot of weight to pull. So it is pretty quick, almost as fast as my old 345 HP 1998 LS1 Corvette. The truck handles great for a truck, but nothing like a true sports car. It is a lot easier to get in and out of than a Corvette. A future classic.
Favorite Features
The retractible hard top is to die for. The exhaust note sounds great. The in-dash 6 disc Bose CD sounds great and has steering wheel controls. The 6 speed manual shifts smooth. The never ending compliments are nice. With 11,000 miles I have had zero problems with it.
Suggested Improvements
This vehicle comes without a spare tire, it should have one standard equipment. There is an aftermarket kit that mounts a spare under the rear, but it is expensive. Battery is under the truck. Cup holders are poor. Poor storage areas. Replacement parts are hard to find.
